How to prevent blood clot, DVT

Posted on March 20th, 2012 No Comments

Blood clotting and Deep-vein thrombosis can be a serious issue and while many think that this only occurs in older people, younger people are also at risk.

In order to protect yourself from having this occur, here are a few steps you can take. First, make sure if you are sitting in the same spot for a while, that you get up at least every two hours to move around. Especially if you are on a long plane or car ride.

If your legs are in a cast or you must lay down forĀ  a long period of time, it is important to discuss with your physician how you can prevent DVT. Secondly, if you are taking an oral contraceptive pill, this can increase your risk of blood clotting or DVT so it is important to make sure that you know the signs and are proactive in preventing this from occurring.

If you or a loved one has been suffered from a blood clot or DVT after using Yasmin or Yaz, contact the Yasmin blood clotting lawyers today by calling 800-761-3187 today.

Claims against Bayer attempt to settle in mediation

Posted on January 10th, 2012 No Comments

The drugmaker, Bayer Pharmaceuticals, will now be going to mediation to try and settle lawsuits claiming that the their birth control pill, Yaz, caused women to develop blood clots.

A judge in Illinois was assigned to the case in hopes to settle the claims in mediation instead of in court. The claims state that the drugmaker left out information about the Yasmin birth control family and the potential health risks that could occur when taking the prescription pill. This includes an increased risk of blood cl0t.

There have been more than 10,000 lawsuits filed that allege that the medication caused serious injury. Last year, the Food and Drug Administration stated that women who take this type of birth control have a 74 percent increased chance of developing a blood clot.

Posted on February 8th, 2011 No Comments

The Canadian Broadcasting Company will be airing an episode in early 2011, called “Spinning the Pill” that will interview women that have taken Yasmin or Yas birth control.

One of the interviews is a young university woman that took the oral contraceptive and developed a blood clot in her lung. The woman was on Yasmin for about a year when she began to experienced sharp pain while breathing.

A walk-in clinic told her that she was just suffering from the flu, but she went to the hospital later because she said that she really could not breathe. The woman was then diagnosed with a pulmonary embolism. This is just one of the interviews that will be shown on the television special.
