Birth Control Pills to Be Wary Of
Our firm currently represents women who have suffered side effects from taking the contraceptive Yasmin, Yaz, or its generic birth control Ocella. We are dedicated to helping families and individuals who have developed blood clots, gallbladder disease, or suffered from a stroke or heart attack due to taking these oral contraceptives.
Women who have suffered from Yasmin related issues have been reporting injuries which form the basis of a lawsuit for damages. Serious side effects of Yaz and Yasmin include blood clots, stroke, and heart attacks. Moreover, gall bladder disease and pancreatitis have been linked with women using the birth control. Consumer groups and members of the medical community are questioning Yaz side effects and the increased risk for blood clots and strokes.
Yaz, Yasmin and Ocella are considered "fourth generation" combination birth control pills. They contain a newer type of synthetic progestin called drospirenone. This contraceptive is one of the most popular contraceptives on the market and has been heavily marketed to women throughout the United States, promoting its use in treating premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD).
Currently neither the FDA or the manufacturer has issued a Yaz recall, and the drug remains one of today's most popular birth control pills. If you feel you have suffered an injury, serious side effect or other forms of damages from taking Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella, please contact our office right awayto speak with an experienced Dallas personal injury lawyer so we can inform you of your rights and discuss your case.
