Yaz Information

Yaz is an oral contraceptive developed by the German pharmaceutical company Berlex Laboratories and now produced and sold by Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals. As one of the most popular birth control pills, Yaz has been taken by millions of women since 2006.

However, Yaz has also been discovered as a drug with serious side effects. The FDA and British Medical journal have both warned that Yaz can cause blood clots. These have been shown to lead to stroke, deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism.

Yaz is a combination oral contraceptive (COC). This means that it uses the steroid derivatives estrogen and progestin to prohibit ovulation, fertilization and implantation. Yaz was meant to be a safer option than previous oral contraceptives due to its use of the “fourth generation” progestin hormone called drospirenone.

Since Bayer failed to properly warn women about the serious side effects linked to taking Yaz, thousands may be at risk or already affected. Attorneys are helping those who have suffered an injury file a claim for their damages.

If you have suffered a blood clot, pulmonary embolism, DVT or stroke after taking Yaz, it is important to speak with an attorney as possible. Substantial compensation may be available, however, time is limited to file a claim.

After Yaz and Yasmine were released, the FDA received reports of more than 50 deaths of women for stroke, blood clots, pulmonary embolism or heart attacks. Additionally, they have received reports of hundreds of serious injuries.

Experts are concerned that the amount of women injured or killed by blood clots, pulmonary embolism or stroke after taking Yaz are more than has been reported. Thousands of women and families have filed a lawsuit for their damages. Fortunately, legal help is still available if you are just learning Yaz may have caused you injury.

A lawsuit should never be filed unless there is proof that a company caused injury. An attorney will explain the research linking Yaz to serious health risks, and how the maker, Bayer Healthcare, continues to earn billions of dollars selling it regardless of the known conditions.

Every case has a different value and a different Statute of Limitations, or expiration period on the time you have to file a claim. It is crucial to speak with a lawyer today about your claim.
