Posted on April 27th, 2011 No Comments

An organization that is devoted to stopping corporate misbehavior has announced that there has been nearly 190 deaths of American women due to the side effects developed from Yaz or Yasmin birth control.

The report from the German-based coalition states that after viewing the FDA’s adverse event database, there have already been 140 deaths linked to Yasmin and 50 linked to Yaz, which is the newer version of the drug.

Many of the victims were young women that had few to no health problems before taking the medication and then developed blood clots, pulmonary embolisms and strokes. Bayer, the manufacturer of the birth control pills, currently faces about 7,000 Yasmin and Yaz lawsuits.

Cerebral hemorrhages and Yasmin birth control

Posted on April 13th, 2011 No Comments

Recently, claims have come forward that stated that Yasmin and Yaz birth control has caused serious health side effects. Some side effects that have been associated with the oral birth control are blood clotting, stroke, deep-vein thrombosis, gallbladder complications and pulmonary embolism. Another serious complication that can arise is cerebral hemorrhages.

A cerebral hemorrhage is the uncontrollable bleeding of tissue of the brain which can result in serious brain damage or death. This occurs when a weak blood vessel ruptures and spills blood on the sensitive brain tissue.

A problem with this condition is that a person may have damage already done before they even see symptoms. Symptoms of a cerebral hemorrhage include vomiting, nausea, seizures, confusion and loss of vision.
