Bayer Healthcare settles 70 claims

Posted on March 7th, 2012 No Comments

Bayer Healthcare has now settled claims brought on by 70 women that state that the birth control pills Yasmin and Yaz, caused women to develop a pulmonary embolism or deep-vein thrombosis.

A judge also ordered last week that the bellwether trials be pushed back from April to June and that the bellwether trial is continued until further notice. Bayer faces another 11,300 claims brought on by women who state similar claims from the oral contraceptive pills.

There has also been some indication that the lawsuits will be settled on a case-by-case basis. Women are claiming that the healthcare company failed to warn women of side effects associated with the use of the birth control pill.

If you suffered a serious health issue after using an oral contraceptive such as Yasmin or Yaz, you need representation on your side that may be able to help you receive the compensation for your pain that you deserve.

Pfizer may face lawsuits after birth control recall

Posted on February 8th, 2012 No Comments

Last week, Pfizer announced the recall of over one million packs of birth control pills after it was discovered that a packaging error could have resulted in a wrong amount of hormone pills in each package.

Officials are now concerned that the faulty packaging may cause lawsuits to be filed that claim “wrongful pregnancy.” The recall affected of Lo/Ovral-28 tablets and the packs were supposed to have 28 hormone pills and seven inactive pills.

The packaging issue left some packs with more than 28 active pills and some with less. If a woman does not take enough of the hormone pill, unwanted pregnancy could occur. Pfizer noticed the problem quickly and announced the recall, but most of the packages were already sold and some are worried that women will see the affects of the mistake.

Another birth control pill that has been the center of lawsuits is Yasmin, manufactured  by Bayer Pharmaceuticals. These pills have been connected to the development of certain serious side effects such as blood clot and stroke and if you have developed one of these, you need representation on your side that is committed to helping those who have suffered from another’s negligence.

The connection between birth control and blood clots

Posted on January 6th, 2012 No Comments

New research on the effects of the popular birth control, Yaz, has found a link between one of the key ingredients and blood clots.

The hormone progestin, drospirenone, has been connected to the increased chance of developing a blood clot in the lungs or in the legs. The findings in the FDA report show that 10 out of every 10,000 women taking birth control with drospirenone will experience a blood clot as compared to only 6 out of every 10,000 women who are prescribed birth control without the hormone progrestin, drospirenone.

The FDA panel members made an executive decision, in a 15-11 vote, that the benefits outweigh the risks when dealing with contraceptives that contain drospirenone. The panel did, however, make the statement that they believe the labeling should be updated to clearly state the connection between this type of contraceptive and the higher possibility of blood clots.

If you or a loved one has developed a blood clot as a result of taking Yasmin or Yaz birth control, you need experienced representation on your side. Please contact the Yasmin lawsuit lawyers of Williams Hart by calling 800-761-3187 today.

Doctors still plan to prescribe Yaz, Yasmin

Posted on December 29th, 2011 No Comments

Although evidence has been released stating that the risk of blood clots are increased for patients who use Yaz and Yasmin, doctors have said that they will still prescribe the medication.

Yaz is a fourth generation birth control pill that contains the hormone, drospirenone and recently, officials with the Food and Drug Administration have stated that the warning label on the product should be changed to reflect the risk of blood clot that is higher then other birth control pills.

Although the FDA decided this, they have stated that the benefits of the drug outweigh the risks. Studies suggest that the number of women who will have a blood clot from this pill are 10 in 10,000. More research is being done on the oral contraceptive at this time.

If you or a loved one used Yasmin and suffered from a blood clot as a result, you need experienced representation on your side. Contact the Yasmin blood clot lawyers of Williams Hart by calling 800-761-3187

Yasmin, Yaz linked to DVT

Posted on June 8th, 2011 No Comments

The Food and Drug Administration has said that the popular fourth generation birth controls, Yasmin, Yaz and Ocella, are linked to the condition deep vein thrombosis.

This condition occurs when blood clots form in the leg. This condition can become fatal if the clot breaks free and travels to the lungs. If this occurs, it is called a pulmonary embolism.

The FDA is investigating the conditions that are associated with birth controls that include the hormone drospirenone. The FDA has reviewed two recent studies that show that women who took birth control containing that hormone, are two to three times more likely to develop a blood clot.

If you or a loved one has developed a blood clot after taking Yasmin or Yaz birth control, contact the Yasmin DVT lawsuit lawyers of Williams Hart by calling 800-761-3187.
