Five women jointly filed a lawsuit against drug giant Bayer, claiming they endured serious side effects after using the birth control pills Yaz, Yasmin, and the generic form of Ocella.
According to the lawsuit filed on March 19 in the Superior Court of the State of California, the five women allege that they lost wages, have a decreased capacity to earn a living, and suffer from emotional effects after sustaining injuries from these dangerous birth control pills. In the filing, four of the plaintiffs suffered deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and other issues, while the fifth plaintiff said she had a venous thromboembolism that required her to be monitored and treated.
Numerous charges of fraud, negligent misrepresentations, manufacturing defect, failure to warn, and deceit by concealment were filed by the plaintiffs against Bayer.
