A New York City stage performer’s legal complaint against the drug giant Bayer alleges that she suffered a stroke at age 27 after regular use of the Yasmin birth control pill.
The New York Post explains:
Brenda Hamilton, who is an understudy in the Broadway show “Wicked,” said she had been taking Yasmin for a little more than two years when she suffered the terrifying stroke in May 2007. She has since recovered, but says in a civil suit filed in The Bronx that Bayer knew Yasmin posed a greater risk than did other birth-control pills for blood clots and strokes, but withheld that information from patients and doctors.
Bayer is defending itself in about 1,100 lawsuits in connection with alleged personal injuries from side effects of its Yaz and Yasmin oral birth control pills.
If you or a loved one has been harmed by any of the side effects of these oral birth control products, you may be entitled to seek money damages in a Yaz or Yasmin lawsuit against the manufacturer.
