drospirenone-containing birth control pills, including Yasmin, may be associated with a higher risk for blood clots than other progestin-containing pills.
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) April 11, 2012
The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than women who suffer from Yasmin Side Effect. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.
On April 10th, 2012 the US FDA ordered revised labels on certain birth-control pills, including Yasmin, to advise of a possibly higher risk of blood clots. Yasmin, a popular birth control pill, is designed to prevent ovulation combining estrogen and drospirenone. It was approved by the FDA in 2001 and it is manufactured by Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals. According to the regulators, drospirenone-containing birth control pills, including Yasmin, may be associated with a higher risk for blood clots than other progestin-containing pills.
According to court documents, on February 15th, 2012, North Dakota resident Donna L. Praus filed a lawsuit (case no. 3:2012cv20009) in the Illinois Southern District Court against Bayer Pharmaceuticals claiming that she suffered an alleged deep vein thrombosis from taking Yasmin and its sister drug Yaz. Deep vein thrombosis is a condition in which a blood clot forms in a vein deep in the body and possibly lodging in an artery in the lungs and blocking blood flow.
As of February 1st, 2012, there were about 11,300 lawsuits pending in the United States served upon Bayer on behalf of persons alleged to have suffered personal injuries, some of them fatal, from the use of Yasmin and Yaz.

The 2011 FDA report based on data from more than 835,000 women who took pills containing drospirenone, including Bayer’s Yasmin line of birth-control pills, reveals that these women were 74 percent more likely to suffer blood clots than women on low-estrogen contraceptives.
