We may never be 100 percent certain just how many women have died from conditions related to the effects of Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella. While it may prove impossible to gauge a precise figure, at least 50 out of 4,000 plaintiffs are families that have suffered the loss of their mother, sister, or daughter after having been prescribed one of Bayer’s popular birth control pills.
North Carolina Yaz Side Effects Lawsuit: Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)
A woman living in North Carolina recently filed a Yaz lawsuit after she allegedly suffered deep vein thrombosis (DVT) in January 2007. The lawsuit alleges that in addition to the conscious suffering caused by the deep vein thrombosis (DVT), this woman also suffered from the amputation of her leg below her right knee as a result of the DVT. The lawsuit alleges that had she or her health care providers known of the serious health risks associated with the use of Yaz, she would not have used Yaz and would not have suffered these injuries.
A CBS Business Net article published in June of 2009 reports on an early suit filed against Bayer over a death allegedly caused by Yaz. The 2009 suit states, “Defendants have been warned at least three times by the FDA; in 2003, 2008 and 2009, for misleading the public through the use of ads which overstate the efficacy of YAZ and/or its predecessor Yasmin, and minimize serious risks associated with the drug.”
Another CBS article in July of 2009 reports on the number of deaths through 2008. A lawsuit filed during that time states, “In fact, in less than a five-year period, from the first quarter of 2004 through the third quarter of 2008, over 50 reports of death among users of Yasmin and Yaz have been filed with the FDA,” the article quoted.
A more recent article published in the Elon University Pedulum in November 2010 reports on the case of Michelle Pfleger, a freshman at Elon, who died on September 24, 2010 while taking Yaz. Pfleger’s mother, Joan Cummins, has filed suit against Bayer. She claims that Yaz caused the clots that led to her daughter’s death. Pfleger was prescribed Yaz for acne, although one of the listed “common side effects” of Yaz is an increase in acne.
The Pendulum reports, “The day before she died, Pfleger had been treated with an analgesic by a physician due to a knee injury. Cummins said it was a normal injury, which raised questions about where the clots came from.” Cummins and her lawyers agree that the clots most likely came from Yaz. Now it is up to the courts to decide. Yaz has very serious side effects.
