Broward County residents who have suffered serious side effects from certain oral contraceptives may be entitled to a qualified individual settlement.
Yaz, Ocella, and Yasmin, are each birth control pills that have been found to cause harmful side effects, including death. While attractive to women seeking multiple benefits beyond contraception, including clear skin, weight loss, and mood stability, these pills are proving to create a problem for ill informed consumers.
While most birth control pills contain estrogen, the effective ingredient in Yasmin, Yaz, and Ocella is a synthetic hormone called drospirenone. Drospirenone is a uniquely more dangerous ingredient than anything found in other oral contraceptives. Women who consume this ingredient are twice as likely to develop serious side effects listed below, than those who take birth control pills without drospirenone.

- Pulmonary Embolism: PM
- Gallbladder Disease

While the FDA released Yaz and Ocella for the use of oral contraception and treating PMDD (Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder), these drug manufacturers continue to advertise their pills for the use of preventing acne. The FDA has reprimanded them repeatedly for doing so because the ads are misleading and the serious side effects are concerning. Florida women who suffer from side effects associated with harmful birth control pills such as Yaz or Ocella should contact a skilled Wrongful Death Attorney in Broward County.
