Yaz, Yasmin & Ocella Claims in NYC

Most women who rely on birth control use Yaz and Yasmin, the two most popular contraceptive drugs that have been heavily used since approximately 2001. Research has shown that use of these drugs may cause serious and dangerous side effects such as pulmonary embolism, stoke and deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Thousands of lawsuits have been filed nationwide by women who relied on these contraceptive drugs and suffered serious side effects.

To add insult to injury, Bayer, the maker of these harmful drugs, misled the public with their advertising campaign. In October 2008, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advised the CEO of Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals that its direct-to-consumer advertising for Yaz was misleading "because they broaden the drug’s indication, overstate the efficacy of Yaz, and minimize serious risks associated with the use of the drug." A new and revised advertising campaign was released by Bayer in 2009.

Yaz, Yasmin and Ocella are dangerous contraceptive drugs. Their side effects could be deadly!

Watch out for the following drug side effects and make sure to contact our office if you have experienced any of the following:

  • Blood clots
