Yaz birth control deaths

March 11, 2010

Yaz and Yasmin are two of the most popular oral contraceptives on the market. However, tragically, these birth control pills have proven fatal for at least 50 women, according to reports made to the FDA. Yaz and Yasmin present an increased risk of potentially fatal side effects over other birth control pills.

 Causes of Yaz and Yasmin deaths

Numerous life-threatening side effects are associated with the use of Yaz and Yasmin, including:

  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Heart attack
  • Blood clots
  • Liver damage
  • Pulmonary embolism
  • Stroke

If a woman does not receive adequate and immediate treatment for any of the above conditions, these side-effects can result in death.

Increased risk for Yaz and Yasmin fatal side effects

Yaz and Yasmin are more dangerous for some women than others. Women with the highest risk of developing a fatal Yasmin/Yaz side effect are those who:

  • Are over the age of 35
  • Are obese
  • Excessively consume alcohol or use illicit drugs
  • Have heart disease
  • Are undergoing hormone therapy
  • Smoke
  • Have had a stroke
  • Have high cholesterol
  • Have high blood pressure

Yaz and Yasmin wrongful death lawsuits

If you have lost a loved one or family member due to fatal side effects from Yaz or Yasmin, you should contact a Yaz/Yasmin lawsuit attorney immediately about bringing a wrongful death lawsuit.

A successful Yaz wrongful death lawsuit can result in compensation for funeral and burial expenses, medical expenses and pain and suffering.
