Bayer Healthcares’ contraceptive Yaz continues to cause gall bladder disease. Marketed under the names Yaz, Yasmin and Ocella, Yaz is a widely used hormone based contraceptive. Bayer claims that Yaz helps to control premenstrual dysphoric disorder symptoms, commonly referred to as PMDD, such as anxiety, irritability, moodiness, bloating, headaches, and muscle pain. Bayer also claims that Yaz suppresses acne.
Yaz hit the market with a host of known side effects including heart attack, stroke, blood clots, headaches, mood swings, and acne. Yaz apparently causes some of the same problems that Bayer claims that Yaz cures. Yaz is also known to cause gall bladder disease, a complication that is noticeably absent from any of Bayers’ disclosures. Yaz causes an increase in the production of gallstones which can become lodged and require the laproscopic removal of the gallbladder. Yaz victims must then deal with the complications of gall bladder removal.
