Yaz MDL (Multidistrict Litigation) cases regarding the development of DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis) are still pending around the country.
However, Bayer – the manufacturer of Yaz, Yasmin and Ocella, announced settlements of 5,700 claims in Yaz birth control lawsuits totaling $1.18 Billion U.S. dollars.
The lawsuits allege that Bayer failed to give sufficient warning to patients and physicians about the increased risk of adverse effects, including some that could potentially lead to death.
Yaz, Yasmin and Ocella side effects include, but are not limited to:
- DVT, Blood Clots
- Gallbladder Disease
- Heart Attack

Bayer, the manufacturer of Yaz may be stepping up efforts to resolve claims against Yaz and Yasmin birth control. The most recent Bayer shareholder report indicates that Bayer has resolved close to 3,500 Yaz lawsuits so far, totaling almost $750 million, making the average total per case nearly $214,000 which is higher than the original $212,000 per case.
At this point, Bayer is only settling claims involving blood clot injuries, such as DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis) and Pulmonary Embolism.
Yaz and Yasmin contain a synthetic hormone known as “Drospirenone”. Drospirenone has been linked to DVT and Pulmonary Embolism, causing the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists to add a new warning to said birth control pills - stating that women taking these birth control pills “may have a higher risk of blood clots.”
Anyone who suffered a blood clot, DVT, stroke or Pulmonary Embolism after taking Yaz or Yasmin is strongly urged to contact a court appointed MDL attorney.

What Is Yaz :
Yaz is known as an “oral contraceptive” or “birth control”. Yaz has been labeled as a dangerous drug because it contains a synthetic female hormone known as “drospirenone”. Drospirenone has been linked to several adverse effects including Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT), blood clots, heart attacks, stroke, pulmonary embolism and even death.
According to the US Drug Watchdog :
“The US Drug Watchdog Initiates A National Investigation of The birth control pill called Yaz”
“According to the US Drug Watchdog the birth control pill known as Yaz could be putting millions of young women at risk of serious side effects including stroke, heart attack and even death. The group is saying, “Bayer USA, the maker of Yaz, has already come under criticism from the US Food & Drug Administration for running TV commercials that minimize the potential health consequences of Yaz.” The US Drug Watchdog has seen these commercials and completely agrees with the FDA.”
“The US Drug Watchdog is saying, “all young women taking Yaz should be aware of the complaints and reported side affects associated with this birth control pill.”
