Bayer Pharmaceuticals, the manufacturers of the birth control products Yaz and Yasmin, have already paid out approximately $400 million to settle lawsuits for their failure to warn about the increased risk of blood clots associated with the use of these contraceptives. Bayer recently set aside another $600 million for future lawsuits, as women around the country who suffered health problems continue to come forward and make legal claims against the German pharmaceutical manufacturer. Several studies have shown as much as a 200% elevated risk of blood clots in women who used birth control products with progesterone, such as Yaz and Yasmin, compared to women who used other oral contraceptives with no progesterone.
It seems Bayer failed to properly test these contraceptives, failed to warn doctors or patients of the very serious risks they presented once they knew about them, and as we so often see in similar situations, these failures were very likely driven by an unwillingness to affect the enormous revenue flows the products were generating. Sadly, it seems that many of the big pharmaceutical companies, who make billions of dollars on their products, have begun to look at lawsuits as part of the cost of doing business. Bayer advertised Yaz and Yasmin as being safer than other forms of birth control, when in fact precisely the opposite was true. If you or a loved one suffered blood clots or other health problems after using Yaz, Yasmin or Ocella, there is still time to seek compensation for the harm caused by these pharmaceuticals.
