Birth Control Medications

Birth control and family planning have been evolving for centuries. While many different methods have been developed, modern couples tend to prefer hormone-altering medications that can greatly reduce a woman’s chances of becoming pregnant. Since the first birth control pill was introduced in the 1950’s, many different medical options have been introduced on the market.

Unfortunately, these medications have not always been safe for use. If you or someone you know suffered serious side effects while taking the oral contraceptive Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella, you may be eligible to receive compensation for your losses. Contact the Yaz side-effect attorneys of Williams Kherkher to discover your legal options. Call 800-761-3187 today to schedule a free case evaluation.

Hormonal Methods of Birth Control

Newer methods which utilize hormonal supplements promise “99% effective against pregnancy” in addition to fewer pre-menstrual symptoms. Some of the newer methods for women on the market include:

  • Oral contraceptives: Synthetic hormones in the form of a pill
  • Intrauterine devices: Implanted devices that release a synthetic progestin in the uterus
  • Injections: Depo shots, or the injection of progestin, promise protection against pregnancy and only 4 menstrual periods a year.
  • Internal rings: Malleable rubber rings that are inserted into the back of the vaginal canal. The ring releases progestin over the course of 28 days for protection from pregnancy.
  • Patches: Patches worn on the skin that protect against pregnancy by releasing progestin into the system by wearing a patch on your abdomen

While many of these methods are effective against pregnancy, they may be accompanied by serious side-effects. For example, the birth control pill Yaz (as well as Yasmin and Ocella) has recently been recalled to due to its potentially life-threatening side effects.
