The St. Louis, Missouri personal injury law firm renews its defense of injured victims as sale of Yaz and Yasmin birth control pills continue to be marketed without proper warnings to consumers.
St. Louis, MO -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/04/2013 -- The development of the birth control pill was a medical innovation with profound social implications. By giving women the power to take responsibility for contraception for the first time, it ushered in waves of social change too complex and manifold to even begin listing. Since the pill was first invented, there has been numerous developments in oral contraception. While most have been regarded as safe, a few have become controversial due to their potential side effects. Two such birth control pills are Yasmin and Yaz.
Yasmin, introduced by Bayer in 2001, and Yaz, introduced by the same company in 2006, were marketed as the ultimate birth control pills. Not only were they said to prevent pregnancy, but were said to reduce the presence of testosterone and other androgenic hormones in the female body, thereby freeing women of acne and PMS. However, the pills were found to have side effects whose dangers far outweighed their benefits, including the life-threatening condition hyperkalemia.
The St. Louis, Missouri personal injury law firm Page Bradleyis currently reviewing cases related to both these drugs.
A spokesman for Page Bradley said: “The makers of Yasmin and Yaz have been warned by the FDA many times for making potentially dangerous claims in their marketing material, as well as understating the risks inherent in the chemistry of their drugs. However, the drugs continued to be sold and marketed without due warning, leading to further FDA censures. There have been a vast number of women affected by complications related to the use of these birth control pills, including very serious, potentially life-threatening issues and medical problems that required surgical intervention. This has caused a lot of pain, suffering, and medical expenses.”
