Yaz injury cases are settling. This is great news for you and the thousands of women who suffered serious side effects from taking Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella.
What is Yaz/Yasmin/Ocella?
YAZ and Yasmin, manufactured by Bayer Pharmaceuticals, and the generic drug Ocella, manufactured by Barr Laboratories, are oral contraceptives used for birth control, premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), an extreme form of premenstrual syndrome (PMS), and moderate acne.
Yaz and Yasmin Side Effects
Yasmin birth control has been linked to greater risk of serious injuries than other types of oral contraceptives. In fact, a May 2011 FDA safety warning cited two studies linking Yaz and Yasmin to a two- or three-fold increased risk of blood clot injuries. Many individuals who were prescribed Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella have suffered serious side effects including:
- Blood clots
- Deep vein thrombosis
- Pulmonary embolism
- Heart attacks
- Sudden death
