Yaz Injury Lawyer

October 29, 2014 | Attorney, Matthew Dolman
In 2006, Bayer Pharmaceuticals introduced a so-called revolutionary type of birth control pill, which the company sold under the names Yaz or Yasmin. Due to differences in hormones in this new type of pill, Bayer claimed Yaz and Yasmin would not only prevent pregnancy, but also clear up acne, promote weight loss, and decrease pre-menstrual symptoms such as moodiness and bloating. Not surprisingly, this type of pill soon became a bestseller, however, it did not take long for women to start reported serious and unexpected side effects of the new birth control pill. While all birth control pills have certain side effects, Yaz and Yasmin contain a new type of synthetic progesterone called drospirenone. According to some studies, drospirenone is the cause of many of these additional side effects reported by users of Yaz or Yasmin. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has as of yet declined to issue a recall for these pills, so they remain on the market and regularly prescribed by health professionals, putting users at risk. If you have suffered injury due to Yaz or Yasmin, the attorneys at the Dolman Law Group Accident Injury Lawyers, PA, can help you file a legal claim against Bayer.

Dangerous Side Effects of Yaz

Some of the serious and possibly life-threatening side effects associated with Yaz include the following:
  • Blood clots

  • Heart attack
  • Pulmonary embolism
  • Stroke
  • Liver dysfunction and tumors
  • Hypertension
  • Anaphylactic reactions
  • High blood sugar lading to diabetes
As you can see, many of these complications caused by Yaz may require extensive medical treatment and may even result in severe illness or death.
