Yaz / Yasmin
Women who have suffered from Yaz and Yasmin side effects have looked at filing a Yaz lawsuit to help recover unpaid medical bills, lost wages and compensation for their injuries. This relatively new birth control has been marketed heavily to women in the United States and is one of the first contraceptives considered a “fourth generation” birth control pill. Both types of this birth control pill are manufactured by Bayer. Generic Yasmin is marketed as “Ocella” and is marketed by Teva. Yasmin is a combination hormonal contraceptive. It contains the hormones ethinyl estradiol (estrogen) and drospirenone which is a synthetic form of progestin.
Recently, Yaz problems have been increasingly reported by women with no prior health problems. Serious side effects of Yasmin including blood clots, gallbladder disease, stroke, and heart attack have been associated with women using the birth control pill. Consumer groups and members of the medical community are questioning Yaz side effects and the increased risk for blood clots and strokes.
Yasmin DVT and Pulmonary Embolism
Pulmonary embolism is a serious Yasmin side effect reported by women using this fourth-generation contraceptive. Venous thrombosis events have been linked to this contraceptive. Pulmonary embolism (PE), deep vein thrombosis (DVT), and ischemic strokes are some of the problems being associated with Yaz birth control.
Yaz side effects include:
• Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
• Pulmonary embolism (PE)
• Blood clots
• Heart attack
• Gallbladder problems
If you or a loved one has suffered from any of the harmful side effects of Yaz such as blood clots, stroke or heart attack you may be entitled to file a Yaz lawsuit against the manufacturer. A lawyer with experience in birth control litigation can help evaluate your claim. Many women around the United States have suffered from life-threatening Yasmin birth control side effects. Unfortunately, most people don’t know that they may have important legal rights.
