Bayer has set aside over $610 million in a settlement fund for claimed filed by women that had a Yaz blood clot. Cases are being settled now so time is running out to be included in the Yaz blood clot settlements.

Women that take Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella have an increased risk of Yaz blood clot injuries.

In April 2012, the US Food and Drug Administration, FDA, issued a Drug Safety Advisory warning about taking birth control pills containing the synthetic hormone, drospirenone. Drospirenone is the active hormone used in Yaz, Yasmine, and Ocella.

The blood clot injuries warned about in the FDA advisory include deep vein thrombosis (DVT), pulmonary embolism (PE), stoke, heart attack, and death.If you are using Yaz, it is important that you are aware of your risk of serious side effects.

Be sure to contact your medical professional if you do develop any signs of blood clots, stroke, or heart injury.Yaz blood clots can be difficult to recognize. A few signs of a possible Yaz blood clot include a darkened patch of skin usually on the individual’s legs and a knot which is tender to the touch. There may also be a difference in temperature at the site.

Women that are taking Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella and notice these signs are urged to contact their medical professional immediately for advice.

DVT and PE can be very serious and treatment is required as soon as possible.

There is a risk that the Yaz blood clot will move causing a pulmonary embolism or stroke.Thousands of women have been diagnosed with Yaz blood clots. According to scientific research, roughly as many as 1 in 1000 Yaz users have developed Yaz blood clots.
