Thousands of lawsuits have been filed in the U.S. against Bayer Pharmaceuticals claiming that their oral contraceptives, YAZ and Yasmin have caused serious illnesses after taking them. One side effect that has been stated in many lawsuits is the development of pulmonary embolism.
A pulmonary embolism is a blood clot in the lung which usually comes from a clot in a smaller vessels. The clot travels from smaller vessels until it get caught and stops the blood flow to the lungs.
If a portion of the lung is cut off from blood and oxygen it becomes infarct, or that part dies. Symptoms include, difficulty breathing, chest pain while inhaling, and increased heart rate.
