           Yaz Causes Blood Clots, Pulmonary embolism, deep vein thrombosis, stokes and heart attacks. Yaz has destroyed the future of many young women and some have died. Fosamax was tauted as the cure all to poor bone density and osteoporosis. Doctors. lured by pharmaceutical company representatives. Imagine a drug for Osteoporosis causing femur fractures. It is almost an oxymorone. As we move along we have Yaz and Yasmine birth control pills. These were taken by young women to offer more freedom. Bayer had special parties where young wome were convinced the these drugs would help their social life. Many social service organizations were offering these to prevent unwanted pregnancy and college campuses were offering a new found sexual freedom. In the age of liberation this was the wonder drug until the complications set in and college girls  were ending up in emergency rooms. Mothers were losing daughters and young women were having their lives dramatically altered by pre-mature strokes and heart attacks. it appeared the chemical base of Yaz and Yasmin increased the potassium in the blood. Postassium effects the rhythm of the heart and heart attacks were occuring. Yaz and Yasmin also caused blood clots, deep vein thrombosis and pulmnary embolisms in young women. Many just girls barely starting a college life

       History moves along and even the DePuy Hip Replacement, a metal on metal hip replacement recalled for its's vast need for revision surgery effects women more then men. Apparently ithe smaller frame of a women makes the device more prone to problems in the female statute.

      And here come the biggest disaster for women, the various vaginal mesh devices for urinary incontinence and uterine, bladder and bowel prolapse. This mesh device is made of a Prolene plastic synthetic fiber and apparently is not holding up. Wome across the country are screaming the horrors of the vaginal mesh. They are in severe pain. Some describe it as razor blades. The mesh is eroding thru the vaginal wall and at times itnot the bladder and bowel. having it removed appears to have its issues as well. Women can no longer have sexual intercourse and marriages are breaking up. Women cannot work and are losing their jobs and health insurance.  Even if there was a Doctor to help they have not money to pay for it. Last but not least we have the Mirena IUD. Apparently the Mirena Slicone IUD. Sound familiar?

The Mirena silicone IUD is showing side effects very reminiscent of the old Dow Silicone breast implants. We also have women prone to breast cancer who should not be implanted with it and the estrogen component is showing evidence of Breast cancer in some women. And last but not least it is gravitating out of position and effecting other near by organs by cutting or severing .

All in all we have many medical devices and drugs effecting women. When a women trusts a doctor it is devastating to find out they were harmed. Women are becoming depressed with sever emotional ramifications from devastating illness and complications. Many feel their loves have been ruined. Chat room are full of "MY experience " with—-. These stories are not pretty and many are stories of loss and a life ruined.

And one must continue to watch in awe as our T.V screens are filled with lawyers seeking to vindicate these women. Many are quite sensitive to the issues. We see one after the other. So many of these are the drugs and devices that harm women. can a dollar settlement help a ruined life?

Teen Blood clots From yaz are Destroying Lives, Parents are Out raged, yaz lawyers Filing lawsuits

Teen says blood clot after taking Yaz destroyed her life

Lynsey Lee, 19, was diagnosed two years ago with a blood clot in her left lung, months after she began taking the birth control pill Yaz.

 

 

Lynsey Lee hoped Yaz would relieve her severe menstrual cramping and pelvic pain, so she began taking the birth control pills when she was only 16. But, instead of getting better, she started experiencing extreme mood swings, nausea and even more pain.

“I got really, really sick,” says Lee, now 19, of White Bluff, Tenn. “I was just constantly throwing up, and it was getting hard to breathe sometimes.”

Then, she started having unbearable chest pains that sent her to the hospital what seemed like every few days. Doctors initially couldn’t figure out what was wrong. “They kept telling me that it was just my body getting used to the medicine,” she says. “Finally, [when I was 17] I just stopped taking it.”

Later that year, after numerous medical exams, doctors diagnosed a blood clot lodged in her left lung. During one emergency room visit, doctors asked Lee what would become a life-changing question for thousands of young women like her: “Have you ever taken Yaz?”

Now, she is among the more than 10,000 American women who have filed class action lawsuits or claims against the German pharmaceutical giant Bayer, which makes Yaz, a popular birth control pill. Thousands more claims are expected. In documents released Tuesday, the Food and Drug Administration raised questions and other similar pills, including life-threatening blood clots, and said warning information should appear on labels for doctors and patients.

Thursday, the FDA's panel of experts agree  that current labeling on the medications isn't enough and should be updated with more information on the risks. But that news comes too late for Lee.

Actress Dies From yaz, Yaz Wrongful Death Lawsuit

Yaz Birth Control Pills Helpling, Yaz Lawsuit Breaking News. Yaz has warnings for Blood clots, Pulmonary embolism, heart attacks and Blood clots. Women are dying from Yaz complications like the actress we see here. a pulmonary embolism is a blood clot in the lungs.

Posted by Amber Scott May 10, 2012 3:51 PM
Plus-size model and actress Mia Amber Davis died of a  Pulmonary embolism last May at age 36. Now, husband and comedian Mike Yard is suing the doctor who prescribed her birth control pills and the doctor who cleared her for knee surgery.
According to the National Blood Clot Alliance, birth control pills triple or quadruple a woman’s risk of developing a blood clot. Currently, Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals is settling    Yaz and Yasmin lawsuits, because the pills are known to cause deep vein thrombosis, heart attack, stroke, and pulmonary embolism.
Though the National Blood Clot Alliance’s website says only one in 3,000 women will develop a blood clot, Davis’ weight increased her odds. Thus, Yard says Davis’ gynecologist should have suggested she use condoms or another form of birth control rather than prescribe Balziva and Zenchent. Yard’s lawsuit states that both contraceptives are “known to greatly increase pulmonary embolisms especially combined with Mia’s health risk factors.”
Leg surgeries also increase one’s odds of developing a pulmonary embolism, or a blood clot that travels to a person’s lungs from another part of his body and blocks the pulmonary artery. Blood clots often begin in the legs – a condition called deep vein thrombosis. So knowing that Davis was obese, that she had high cholesterol – which increases one’s risk of having a heart attack or stroke – and that she was taking Zenchent, Yard feels her family practitioner should not have cleared her for knee surgery. But he did, and she died a day after surgery.
Yard is suing for the loss of love, companionship, and moral support he lost when his wife died.
