Yaz Birth Control Complaints
Since the birth control hit the U.S. market, there have been many Yaz complaints filed in both state and federal courts. While the basis of these complaints may not all be exactly the same, they all claim serious injuries and deaths.
Complaints About Yaz
As with any birth control method, there are a series of general complaints about Yaz Birth Control. For instance:
- Bloating, stomach cramps
- Weight gain
- Hair loss
- Lower back pain
- Breast tenderness
Reported Side Effects
The general complaints about Yaz are not what has gotten Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals into trouble, however. The birth control pill has been linked to a series of sever side effects including blood clots, heart attack, stroke, gallbladder damage, pulmonary embolism and more. These conditions, which have the potential to be fatal, have caused hundreds of women (and families of women who have died after using Yaz) to file lawsuits seeking compensation for their wrongful injuries and deaths.
Current Yaz Complaints
Yaz birth control attorneys across the nation are investigating hundreds of complaints about Yaz. Millions of women are using (or have used) Yaz as their form of birth control. Plaintiffs are arguing that their decision to switch to Yaz was based on an attractive marketing campaign that hit television in 2006.
The campaign faced heavy scrutiny from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), however, who required Bayer to change its marketing because the commercials were misleading. The commercials, according to the FDA, made false claims as to what Yaz can and cannot do and downplayed the serious health risks associated with the birth control pill.
Although Bayer agreed to shell tons of money and correct these ads, many women have complained that they feel dooped by Bayer and may not have begun to use the birth control pill had they been given the truth. These Yaz complaints are among the many made by injured plaintiffs throughout the U.S.
