All About YAZ
After acquiring Berlex, drug manufacturer Bayer produced a new version of Yasmin and called it YAZ. YAZ is an oral contraceptive that was approved by the FDA in 2006. Since its release, Yasmin and YAZ have been marketed as a treatment for acne vulgaris and premenstrual dysphoric syndrome, or PMS. Both YAZ and Yasmin contain drospirenone, a “fourth generation” progestin, which has been linked with serious side effects.
If you or someone you know has been a victim of unexpected side effects while taking a drospirenone-containing oral contraceptive, you may be eligible to receive compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages.

YAZ Associated Illnesses
Hundreds of women who have taken YAZ or Yasmin have experienced serious and unexpected side effects. Oral contraceptives containing drospirenone have been linked with the following illnesses:
- Blood clotting
- Heart attack
- Deep-vein thrombosis (DVT)
- Pulmonary embolism (PE)
- Gallbladder complications
- Cerebral hemorrhage
- Liver tumors
Many of these conditions are very serious or potentially life threatening. If you have suffered from any of these illnesses while taking YAZ, Yasmin, or Ocella, you deserve compensation for your losses.
