birth control injury

Denver Birth Control Injury Attorneys

If you were injured after taking birth control pills like Yaz, Yasmin, Ocella, Beyaz, or the birth control patch Ortho Evra, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. The Sawaya Law Firm can help you determine whether you have a case.

Were You Injured After Taking Yaz, Yasmin, Ocella, Or Beyaz?

Yaz has been marketed as more than just a birth control pill; it’s also billed as an effective treatment for acne and premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD). PMDD is a condition with severe symptoms like nervousness, irritability, headaches and abdominal pain.

What was not clearly explained, however, was that Yaz carries a high risk of hyperkalemia. Drospirenone, one of the primary ingredients in Yaz, can cause an increase in potassium in the blood which leads to hyperkalemia. This condition causes heart rhythm disturbances, which cause blood clots leading to pulmonary embolism, cardiac death, or strokes.

Problems with the gallbladder may also be a side effect from Yaz, which could result in the removal of the gallbladder. If you took Yaz and as a result had a heart attack, DVT, gallbladder removal, pulmonary embolism, or stroke, call our Colorado personal injury attorneys at The Sawaya Law Firm.

Ortho Evra Birth Control Injury Attorneys

The Ortho Evra birth control patch may be dangerous to your health, causing adverse side effects that include:

  • Blood Clots
  • Pulmonary embolism
  • Heart attack
  • Stroke

The FDA approved updated labeling for the Ortho Evra contraceptive patch to warn the public that the product exposes women to higher levels of estrogen than most birth control pills. Higher levels of estrogen may put some women at increased risk for getting blood clots and other heart-related complications.

If you have suffered cardio-related complications from using the Ortho Evra birth control patch, the Colorado personal injury lawyers at The Sawaya Law Firm may be able to help you. Contact The Sawaya Law Firm immediately if you have experienced any health-related issues following use of the Ortho Evra patch.
