Yaz and Yasmin

Yaz and Yasmin

To date, there have been more than 50 deaths directly related to Yaz and Yasmin birth control. The number of product liability and wrongful death lawsuits being filed against Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals has grown increasingly since the FDA ordered the company to spend over 20 million dollars on a corrective advertising campaign.

How Yaz and Yasmin Are Being Advertised

Yaz and Yasmin products were advertised through magazines, brochures, internet marketing, television and radio commercials, and many other forms of marketing. These advertisements stated that the birth control pills Yaz and Yasmin would not only perform the task of birth control but also help get rid of pimples or facial acne, as well as ease or even get rid of many symptoms of PMS.

These statements were unproven and not approved by the FDA.

Serious Side-Effects

Lawsuits have been filed based on such serious and life-threatening side effects such as:

  • Sudden Death
  • Heart Attacks
  • Strokes
  • Pulmonary Embolism (PE)
  • Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)
  • Gallbladder Disease
  • Kidney Failure
  • Cardiac Arrhythmias

In the following video: Midwife Christina Cameli explains how to safely start the birth control pills.
