9,566 Reasons Not to Believe Yasmin Birth Control Is Safe


Although Yasmin birth control manufacturer, Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals, Inc., continuously maintains its product is just as safe as other oral contraceptives on the market, there seems to be 9,566 reasons that question this assertion. That amount represents the number of Yasmin and Yaz lawsuits still currently pending. The contraceptive is alleged to cause a significant risk of blood clots and deep vein thrombosis. While it is true that all oral contraceptives carry a minute risk for blood clots, multiple studies indicated that Yaz and Yasmin carry a significantly higher risk of blood clotting than its competitors. Just over a year ago an FDA advisory panel voted 15-11 to keep the contraceptive on the market only requiring a label change to denote risks. Yasim, Yaz and various other contraceptives that contain drospirenone typically heavily target young women advertising its ability to control acne, minimize premenstrual symptoms and reduce bloating. However, as many users have found out, any benefits of using the drug are far outweighed by the consequences. Those injured by the contraceptives allege the manufacturers knew, or should have known, about the increased risk of blood clots, and should have done a better job informing the public.

Manufacturers who put defective or dangerous drugs on the market or fail to warn about potential side effects are liable for all resulting injuries. It is unfortunate that drug manufacturers would rather continue to place its product on the market and make money than consider the damage it is causing. In this case, young girls have even died after using this contraceptive. The negligent manufacturers will be held liable.
