Bayer AG, Germany’s largest pharmaceutical producer, has predicted the cost of settling all of its Yasmin birth control lawsuits will total around $2.65 billion.
The birth control drug has been strongly linked to blood clots that can cause heart attacks or strokes. The company is currently only settling on specific venous clot injuries such as pulmonary embolism and deep vein thrombosis.
However, the drug has also been linked with other complications that include liver tumors and cerebral hemorrhage. Birth control manufacturers have been ordered to include stronger warnings of these risks on their labels.
