The Yaz lawsuit settlement
announcement came as the FDA ordered revised labels for Yaz, Yasmin and drospirenone-containing birth control pills to advise of a potentially higher risk of blood clots. The new Yaz label states that woman taking oral contraceptives containing the hormone drospirenone may have a higher risk for blood clots and that some studies have reported that the blood clot risk is higher for these women compared to those taking birth controls which do not contain drospirenone. In November 2011, it was reported that a study of 330,000 Israeli woman revealed that women taking Yaz and other drospirenone-containing pills were more likely than other oral contraceptive users to develop blood clots known as venous thromboembolisms.
Yaz and Yasmin users who have suffered a venous thromboembolism, pulmonary embolism (PE) or deep vein thrombosis (DVT) may be able to file a Yaz lawsuit
seeking compensation for medical bills and other losses.
