Call (306) 653-7756

 

Our law firm has received hundreds of complaints from women who have used Yaz or Yasmin. 

Each of these women have suffered from dangerous blood clots, pulmonary embolisms, or gallbladder disease. 

It is alleged that the “fourth generation” progestins in the drug, one whose use is unprecedented in birth control pills sold in Canada, interact with the ethinyl estradiol component of the pill in a way that makes it impossible for the pill to sufficiently counterbalance the clotting effects of estrogens. In addition, this progesterone, drospirenone, causes an increase of potassium levels can lead to a condition known as hyperkalemia.

Bayer Canada did not offer any warnings on the alleged increased risks of using their product. 

Bayer has settled more than 18,000 individual lawsuits on this matter. In the U.S., Bayer signed off on a $2 billion settlement. Now it’s time for Canadian women to get justice too.
