HOW SAFE IS YOUR BIRTH CONTROL? The Law Firm of D’Arcy Johnson Day is currently investigating birth control side effect claims. Nearly a third of women wanting to prevent pregnancy use birth control pills and in 2008, Americans spent approximately $3.5 billion on those pills. Oral contraceptives and vaginal ring contraceptives pose the threat of serious adverse health effects . Some of the risks of taking NuvaRing, Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella include deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, stroke, and other blood-clot related events. The FDA said it has more than 1,700 reported cases of blood clots connected to Yaz and Yasmin. Similar reports of blood clots have been associated with the use of NuvaRing.
As of July 19, 2012, the number of lawsuits pending in the United States and served upon Bayer (Yasmin, Yaz, Ocella) was about 12,325 involving about 13,530 claimants. Scores of wrongful death and personal injury claims have been filed against NuvaRing’s manufacturer, Organon. A number of women have died after developing what has been alleged as NuvaRing-related health problems and hundreds more have alleged illness or injury. Attorney Andrew D’Arcy was appointed by the Court to serve on the Plaintiff’s National Steering Committee for NuvaRing’s multi-district litigation.
