ABC 13 News in Las Vegas, Nevada reported on a 25-year-old mother of five named Kathy Perea who spent nights in the bathroom vomiting and struggling with chest pains. Both of these effects started to occur after she was prescribed the Yasmin birth control pill.
“I was throwing up so much that the vessels in my eyes were busting because I was straining myself so bad,” she said to ABC 13 News.
Mrs. Perea went off the pill, but the pain continued. It turns out her gallbladder suffered irreparable damage and was forced to have it surgically removed. Was it due to her taking Yasmin? Looks likely.
Unfortunately, Mrs. Perea’s story is common. Thousands of personal injury lawsuits have been filed against Bayer, the manufacturer of Yasmin and Yaz, due to injuring women who’ve taken these dangerous prescription birth control pills
In addition to gallbladder damage, some common Yasmin side effects listed in these suits include:
- Blood clots
- Blurry vision
- Breast lumps
- Yeast infections
- Chest pains/shortness of breathing
If you or a loved one has taken Yaz, Yasmin, or the generic Ocella and suffered adverse side effects, please consult with an attorney immediately. Bayer was slapped with the multi-million dollar fine for downplaying the terrible side effects of Yaz and Yasmin so they could try to generate more profit. This is just plain wrong. Don’t let them get away with it.
