Severe Risks Of Yaz/Yasmin

Yaz and Yasmin are popular oral contraceptives marketed by Bayer. They are FDA-approved to prevent pregnancy, treat premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) and treat moderate acne in women. Yaz and Yasmin have been linked to many serious health risks, including:

  • Blood clots
  • Heart attack
  • Stroke
  • High blood pressure
  • Hyperthyroidism (also known as Graves’ disease)
  • Hyperkalemia
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Liver tumors
  • Breast and cervical cancer
  • Organ failure
  • Pancreatitis

Yaz was introduced in 2006 and, by 2008, had garnered 18 percent of the market share for oral contraceptives. Its popularity, mostly due to aggressive ad campaigns, was affected as adverse health risks related to Yaz began to emerge. By 2009, over 1,100 lawsuits had been filed against Bayer for injuries caused by Yaz and/or Yasmin.
