San Diego, CA (PRWEB) October 04, 2012
The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than Evelyn Heidi Cottle and Tara Goggin. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.
According to court documents, on July 11th, 2012, two Colorado women, Evelyn Heidi Cottle and Tara Goggin, filed a lawsuit in Illinois Southern District Court (case no. 3:2012cv11107) claiming severe injuries, including deep vein thrombosis (DVT), from taking Yasmin and Yaz. Yasmin, which was approved by the FDA in 2001, and its sister drug Yaz, which was approved in 2006, are oral contraceptives that combine estrogen and a fourth generation progestin, drospirenone, to prevent pregnancy. Yaz and Yasmin are manufactured by Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals.
In the lawsuit Cottle claims she started using Yaz in 2010 and stopped a few months later. As a result of Yaz, she alleges been diagnosed with DVT. Goggin claims she started using Yasmin in 2011, and stopped a few months later. She allegedly suffered DVT and a pulmonary embolism in December 2011. The case joins the Yasmin/Yaz Multidistrict Litigation (MDL 2100).
