According to a study released by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on October 27, 2011, birth control pills that contain drospirenone increase the risk of blood clots by almost 74%, compared to other oral contraceptives that are made with an older form of progestin.
In December 2011, during a joint meeting of the FDA’s Reproductive Health Drugs Advisory Committee and its Drug Safety and Risk Management Advisory Committee, a majority of outside medical experts recommended that labels for Yaz, Yasmin and similar pills be updated with stronger warnings about their possible potential to cause serious, life threatening blood clots. According to The New York Times, the committee voted 15-11 that Yaz and Yasmin be allowed to remain on the market, despite the concerns over blood clots.
Gilman Law LLP is offering free, no obligation lawsuit consultations to victims of blood clots and other serious injuries that may be associated with the use of Yaz and Yasmin.
