Yaz® and Yasmin are two of the most popular oral contraceptive drugs of all time and have been taken by millions of women since first released in 2001.
Unfortunately, new research has shown these drugs may increase the risk of blood clots, which can lead to serious conditions like Stroke, Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT), and Pulmonary Embolism.
Studies released by the U.S. FDA and British Medical Journal have shown a dramatic increase in these blood clot risks in those women taking Yaz or Yasmin. The FDA has also received multiple reports of injury or death following use of the drug.
Those who have been injured by these defective drugs have a legal right to seek recovery for their damages through a yaz lawsuit. With thousands of lawsuits filed against the drug maker, Bayer, the company has already begun settling these cases with victims.
If you suffered a blood clot, DVT, Pulmonary Embolism or stroke after taking Yaz, it is important to speak with a lawyer before it’s too late. Contact us today for more information.

Although the oral contraceptive drugs Yaz® and Yasmin were designed to have fewer side effects than earlier versions of birth control, experts have now discovered they may have serious health risks.
Over the past five years, studies have related the use of Yaz with side effects such as:
Since approving Yasmin in 2001 and Yaz in 2006, the FDA has issued three warning letters in 2003, 2008 and 2009 advising patients of possible health risks. The agency has also received hundreds of reports of death or injury in women taking the drugs.
In 2009, The British Medical Journal published separate studies from Denmark and the Netherlands highlighting the risks. Both concluded that drugs like Yaz which contain the chemical drospirenone were related to an increased risk of blood clots.
In October, 2011, the FDA released a comprehensive study of more than 800,000 women taking oral contraceptives. The results showed that those taking drugs like Yaz had a 75% increased risk of developing blood clots.
If you have suffered a side effect from Yaz, you may be entitled to substantial compensation. Contact us today for more information on the health warnings of Yaz and to speak with a lawyer about your legal options.
