Both Yaz and Yasmin are birth control medications that were approved by the FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) in both 2006 and 2001, respectively. Manufactured by Bayer HealthCare, they were also prescribed to treat PMDD and mild to moderate acne. Unfortunately, Yaz and Yasmin have been linked to causing dangerous side effects to their users, such as blood clots, strokes, heart attacks and even death.
If you or a loved one has been injured by the use of Yaz or Yasmin (generic Ocella), please reach out to a dedicated Springfield product liability attorney as soon as possible. There are statutes of limitations to consider, so do not wait. Otherwise you could be barred from making a claim.
