Blood Clots Caused by Birth Control Pills Lead to Massive Lawsuits

Filed under: Money Makers,This and That |

Millions in legal fees are being paid out to those affected by the popular birth control drug, Yaz.  The payments are linked to problems with blood clots that appeared in victims after trying the drug.  A study of over 1.3 million Danish women over nine years old says that many of the newer birth control pills can cause blood clots.

Pills containing drospirenone, a synthetic hormone, are believed to have caused a six-fold increase in the risk of venous thromboembolism, a form of clot in the lower leg that can travel to the lungs.   Additionally, this risk was connected to a three-fold increase in clots caused by older contraceptives containing the synthetic hormone levonorgestrel.

The study finding the key results was published in the British Medical Journal.

“It is crucial, however, not to exaggerate the risk — oral contraceptives are remarkably safe and may confer important long-term benefits in relation to cancer and mortality,” stated an editorial in the journal.

Obviously,  the findings lead to serious legal problems for Bayer, the company that makes the drug.  The company is paying out massive legal settlements in relation to the use of  Yaz and another product called Yasmin.   But the company maintains that its product is safe for public consumption.

Even though it continues to protect the integrity of its product, Bayer is paying out hundreds of millions of dollars to those who’ve been affected.   According to the latest shareholders report, the company has put aside an extra $262.5 million to satisfy legal settlements related to the drug.  This is in addition to the $610 million the company had put aside before.

If you’ve suffered a DVT, stroke or Pulmonary Embolism after taking Yaz or Yasmin, then you should reach out to the Yaz Resource Center or contact an attorney..

    • Because the male pharmacists know the risks and, unlike the president of Rogaine, they will *not* also be customers of the products they manufacture. Maybe that should be a clue that lady steroids are a bad idea from the get-go.

  4. Blood clotting, or coagulation, is an important process that prevents excessive bleeding when a blood vessel is injured. Platelets (a type of blood cell) and proteins in your plasma (the liquid part of blood) work together to stop the bleeding by forming a clot over the injury. Typically, your body will naturally dissolve the blood clot after the injury has healed. Sometimes, however, clots form on the inside of vessels without an obvious injury or do not dissolve naturally. These situations can be dangerous and require accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment.,,.^

  5. A noun is a word used as the name of a person, place, animal, bird, emotion, idea or thing.

    A pronoun is a word used instead of a common noun or a proper noun. The word pronoun means for a noun and it called a noun’s deputy.

    “Pro” + “noun” typically means “in place, of, instead of” a noun or a noun phrase. Pronouns, then, replace nouns (David met Joe; he [Joe] talked for an hour) and can also refer back to nouns (David is absent, because he is ill).
