Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella are birth control pills that are used to prevent pregnancy and improve menstrual cycles. Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella can also be used to treat premenstrual dysphoric disorder or PMDD. This is a condition that is similar to the PMS but with much more severe symptoms that can sometimes begin to interfere with the daily lives of women suffering from the condition. The symptoms of PMDD can include anxiety, depression, irritability, trouble concentrating, and joint and muscle pain.

Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella became immensely popular when they were first introduced in 2006.  Yaz and Yasmin are manufactured by Bayer while Ocella is a generic version of the drug. They all skyrocketed in sales and were the number one birth control products on the market. However, as their popularity increased, it became evident that many unknown side effects were associated with these drugs.

Birth control pills have existed for a long time and Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella present a number of differences from the traditional birth control pill. These drugs contain synthetic ingredients that work in a different way than previous birth control pills did. They block testosterone and also increase the amount of testosterone that is blocked from being produced.


Yaz, Yasmin and Ocella present a number of side effects that had never before been seen from birth control pills. The adverse reactions range from mild to severe and many doctors and consumers of the drug have taken notice.

One of the most dangerous side effects associated with these drugs is the increased risk of developing blood clots. It is estimated that by taking Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella, a woman increases her risk of blood clots by seven times the amount of someone taking another type of contraceptive.

Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella have been known to cause a condition known as deep vein thrombosis as well. This condition occurs when a blood clot forms within a vein deep inside the body, oftentimes in the leg. When this occurs, the blood clot can detach from where it originally formed and travel to other parts of the body. This can become harmful if the clot travels to the lungs or brain. When this occurs, stroke or a condition known as a pulmonary embolism can develop. A pulmonary embolism is when a blood clot gets lodged within a vein the lung. This condition can lead to serious complications including fainting and sometimes death.

Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella have been linked to an increased risk of heart attack and irregular heart beat. These are serious conditions that can sometimes lead to death. Along with these heart related issues, these drugs have been linked to serious kidney damage and even kidney failure. They also have some more minor side effects including upper respiratory infections, less sexual desire, high blood sugar and high blood pressure, difficulty breathing, and swelling of the face.


With so many significant side effects coming from Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella, it is no surprise that a number of lawsuits have been filed against the companies that make these drugs. Currently, over 10,000 women have filed lawsuits against Bayer for the failure to warn them about the life-threatening side effects that come with taking the drug.

The FDA has been investigating Bayer for a number of years regarding Yaz. Bayer received a warning in 2009 when the FDA discovered that it was using poor ingredients in its factory in Germany to produce Yaz. The German company sent multiple bad batches of Yaz to the United States. The FDA also discovered that many of the machines that Bayer was using to manufacture Yaz were dirty and did not meet the sanitation standards that were required to produce the drug.

The FDA also took note of the significant risk of blood clots that Yaz introduces to women taking the drug. While the risks are significant, they have not prevented the FDA from removing Yaz from the market. It was discovered that multiple members on the FDA panel that approved the use of Yaz had ties to Bayer. These ties have raised questions about the FDA’s actions regarding the drug and whether or not Bayer was aware that Yaz posed significant health risks to the women taking it.

Bayer is set to undergo trial following the growing number of lawsuits related to Yaz. More than 12,000 lawsuits have been filed against Bayer. The company has settled many of these lawsuits and has paid out more than 1 billion dollars to do so. These lawsuits will continue to grow and it is expected Bayer will be forced to pay much more to undo the enormous amounts of damage caused by Yaz.
