Nearly 4,200 people have filed lawsuits after having taken Yasmin, Yaz or Ocella birth control alleging that they suffered severe injuries after taking it.
According to a judge in the U.S. District Court, there are currently 3,900 cases pending in court and each month the number continues to grow. In addition to federal litigation, 485 Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella lawsuits have been consolidated in New Jersey and there are similar stories to this in other states.
All of the lawsuits have to deal with negative side effects that women have suffered after taking the birth control pill, such as strokes, heart attacks, gall bladder disease, deep vein thrombosis, and pulmonary embolism. Most of the complaints state that the birth control pill’s link to drospirenone may have increased the risk of the negative health risks.
