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).

  37. Football is experiencing its best of times and worst of times. On one hand, it’s difficult to mount the argument that it hasn’t surpassed baseball as the American pastime. It’s continuously a ratings juggernaut, and has gone from one contained season to a year-round obsession for many. From the Super Bowl to draft day, training camp, and fantasy football, it’s the sport that commands our attention as fans the most, but it’s also been the one that infuriates and disappoints us repeatedly. The only question to ask is which of those two qualities will continue? Will football reign supreme, or will the league, owners, and players bring about the downfall of America’s game?

    “No one’s saying it’s easy. I’ve spent years trying to quit football,” Steve Almond says in his latest book, Against Football. Almond, an Oakland Raiders fan, spends the book trying to be as pragmatic a fan as possible, breaking down the ills of the game from the physical danger the players are in, to the sheer greed of the owners and the league itself. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has said he’d like to see league revenue hit $25 billion by 2027. That number, as Almond points out, would put the NFL at the same table as global companies like McDonald’s and Nike. But at what cost?

  38. There are little pieces of music history you can buy and put on your wall – a chunk of broken guitar, a drumstick, a sheet of song lyrics – and then there’s the kind you can drive around and show off. And there might be nothing more badass than being seen in Johnny Cash’s stunning 1970 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow.

    Up for auction through Barrett-Jackson in Las Vegas between September 25 through September 27, the ABC network purchased the black car with black upholstery for the Man in Black, and made sure the factory provided “JRC” initials in gold on the rear doors. The car was a gift for the country music legend’s successful The Johnny Cash Show, and was purchased from Cash in the mid-1980s by a private seller who is now parting ways with it.

    The vehicle has 32,000 miles on the odometer and is presented in largely original condition. The winner of the car also gets all the car’s original paperwork, including initial plans to apply a “Golden Guitar” to each of the rear doors before deciding on Cash’s initials. There’s no reserve, although bidding will probably be high since pretty much everybody would love to be seen in this legendary automobile.
