Birth control side effects lawsuits are on the rise all over the U.S.
Bringing a child into the world is a life-changing event that requires careful planning. An unplanned pregnancy can dramatically alter the life of a woman who may not be prepared for a child. Therefore, birth control is of significant importance to women who do not wish to have children in their present lives. Unfortunately, over the last two decades, stories of the health dangers and hazards of birth control have been rapidly rising. In fact, numerous lawsuits have already been filed against the manufacturer of the popular birth control pill Yaz and Yasmin (and its generic form Ocella). The FDA has reported at least 50 cases of wrongful death as a direct result of these dangerous birth control pills. Furthermore, hundreds of women have already suffered from its detrimental side effects, including blood clots, strokes, heart attacks, gall bladder problems, and kidney failure.
