More Yasmin Lawsuits Filed

. By
Los Angeles, CAEven though Bayer is settling Yasmin and Yaz lawsuits, new Yaz, Yasmin and Ocella claims are still being filed, and LawyersandSettlements is receiving more Yasmin birth control complaints.

Carol filed a complaint with LawyersandSettlements two weeks ago, claiming that she suffered a blood clot in her leg and had a pulmonary embolism as a result of being on Yaz. Diane, who filed a complaint in September, said that Yasmin almost killed her.

“I was hospitalized for ten days with a bilateral pulmonary embolism in June 2004 while I was on Yasmin,” she says. “At first I was misdiagnosed with a protein S deficiency [a disorder associated with increased risk of venous thrombosis] until my hematologist did further tests. As a result, I was on coumadin for several months and can never again take any hormone pills—and that includes no hormone replacement therapy when I reach menopause.”

In September 2010 Amber was rushed to hospital—just one month before her wedding day. The doctors found an extensive DVT (deep vein thrombosis) in her leg. She filed a claim two years later.

Also in September 2012, a Yasmin lawsuit was filed in the Superior Court, Los Angeles County. Lucie Skalova, a California resident, accused manufacturer Bayer of failing to warn about the side effects of the birth control pill before putting it on the market. Skalova is one of thousands of women claiming that Bayer made, marketed, and sold a flawed product. In total, Skalova filed 11 actions against the manufacturer. She also claims that Bayer, through the use of television ads, led consumers to believe that the birth control pills were safe and superior to other contraceptive medications.

And in July 2012 two women from Colorado filed a lawsuit in Illinois Southern District Court (case no. 3:2012cv11107). Evelyn Heidi Cottle and Tara Goggin are claiming severe injuries, including deep vein thrombosis (DVT), from taking Yasmin and Yaz. Their case joins the Yasmin/Yaz Multidistrict Litigation (MDL 2100).

Over the last few years, overwhelming evidence has indicated that drospinerone birth control pills have adverse effects that are more dangerous than earlier generations of oral contraceptives. (Yasmin and Yaz are fourth-generation birth control pills.)

As of July 31, 2012 Bayer settlements of Yasmin lawsuits in the US alone have increased to more than $402 million. According to Bayer’s stockholders’ newsletter, the corporation has resolved almost 1,900 cases alleging that Yasmin and Yaz birth control pills—their so-called 'wonder drug' birth control pills--allegedly caused clots that can lead to heart attacks and strokes, for an average of approximately $212,000 a case.
