Doctors Warn of Yaz, Yasmin Dangers

Posted on April 22nd, 2010 No Comments

The birth control pills Yasmin and Yaz came onto the market in 2001 and 2006, respectively, and were thought to be safer than other contraceptives because they contained a new synthetic progestin. However, the new ingredient has been linked to various health problems and the drugs’ manufacturer has been named in multiple lawsuits.

As of mid February 1,100 lawsuits have been filed in the United States against the drugs’ maker, Bayer HealthCare. The manufacturer stands behind the pills’ safety, but attorneys across the country argue that the progestin contained in the pills, drospirenone, is the cause of health problems, including blood clots in deep veins (deep vein thrombosis), strokes, heart attacks, and gallbladder disease.

In a statement released by Dr. Sidney Wolfe, founder and director of Public Citizen’s Health Research Group, a non profit advocacy organization based in Washington, D.C., Wolfe warns of the dangers of the drugs. “There is reason to be concerned, I believe, about both of them [Yaz and Yasmin],” Wolfe said. “When evidence like that comes up, people should pay attention to it.”

If you or someone you love has suffered blood clotting as a result of taking Yasmin, Yaz, or Ocella birth control, please contact the Yasmin lawsuit lawyers of Willams Kherkher by calling 800-761-3187 today
