Dangers of Yaz®/Yasmin

Yaz® and Yasmin® are oral birth control pills that prevent ovulation in women. Should an egg become fertilized, these contraceptives prompt a change in the physiological structure of your reproductive system and make it impossible for a fertilized egg to attach to the uterine wall.

These attributes made Yaz®/Yasmin® a huge success when the contraceptives were first introduced. The active ingredients drospirenone (synthetic progestin) and ethinylestradiol (synthetic estrogen) were praised for the drug’s success. However, these ingredients ultimately caused a variety of adverse side effects, and even some fatalities.

If you have suffered an injury from these contraceptives, contact a Montana Yaz®/Yasmin® injury attorney to learn about your options.

Side effects associated with Yaz®/Yasmin® include:

  • Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
  • Stroke
  • Cardiac arrhythmia and heart attacks
  • Pulmonary embolism
  • Kidney failure
  • Gallbladder disease

In recent years, several lawsuits have been filed against Bayer, one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world, by women who have suffered from the life-threatening side-effects after using Yaz®/Yasmin®.
