More Bayer Birth Control Dangers

Comments Off

From Fox News:

Within the past year both Christine Navarro and Robyn Dunn were rushed to the hospital with life threatening blood clots. At the time Christine was taking the Yaz birth control pill and Robyn was taking its sister birth control drug Yasmin.

Both of these women were young and athletic and blame birth control for their brushes with death.

It’s common knowledge that all women’s oral contraceptives carry a percentage risk of health complications. But attorney’s who’ve filed lawsuits on behalf of Robyn and Christine contend that Yaz and Yasmin from Bayer carry a greater risk.

These attorneys claim that recent study in the British Medical Journal found increased risk from the drug drospirenone unique to Yaz and Yasmin.

Representatives for Bayer, the maker of Yaz and Yasmin responded to the concerns, saying quote: "Patient safety is Bayer’s top priority. Bayer’s oral contraceptives have been and continue to be extensively studied and tested worldwide. Bayer reaffirms and stands behind the safety of its drospirenone containing oral contraceptives."

**Also, anyone who has been adversely affected due to taking these prescription drugs, like Yasmin, Yaz or Ocella, should get in touch with Helen Zukin. Ms. Zukin recently retained a client, a young woman, who unfortunately suffered from a stroke, after only taking Ocella (generic version of Yaz) for a month.
