Study shows Yaz may cause irritable bowel syndrome

Posted on July 11th, 2012 No Comments

A new study out of the University of British Columbia suggests that women who take Yaz are more likely to be diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) than women who take other forms of birth control.

Researchers studied over a million women aged 18 to 46 for 90 days. Results showed that 0.77 percent of women taking Yaz developed IBS and only 0.46 percent of women on other contraceptives did.

While each group had less than one percent of women diagnosed with IBS, the Yaz group was 75 percent more likely to develop the condition. Symptoms of IBS include bloating, constipation, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and discomfort.

If you are considering taking oral contraceptives, it is important to know the side effects of Yaz. Contact the Yaz and Yasmin birth control lawsuit attorneys of Williams Kherkher at 800-761-3187.

Majority of Yaz cases expected to be settled by end of the year

Posted on July 5th, 2012 No Comments

Chief U.S. District Judge David Herndon and George Washington University Law School professor Stephen Saltzburg said today that they expect more than half of the more than 9,000 Yaz and Yasmin lawsuits to be settled by the end of the year.

So far, about 1,500 cases have been settled with the average settlement reaching $214,000. Saltzburg, experienced in multi-district litigation, says the mediation process has helped him move through cases at a consistent rate.

The Madison Record reports that Bayer has agreed to pay out more than $300 million, with the most severe cases being awarded more money.
