Yasmin and Yaz Lawsuit Consolidation Hearing Set for Next Month

A panel of federal judges will hear arguments later next month to determine whether all federal lawsuits against Bayer Pharmaceuticals Corporation over serious and potentially life threatening side effects of Yaz and Yasmin birth control should be centralized and consolidated in one district for coordinated handling as part of an MDL, or Multidistrict Litigation.

According to a notice issued on Friday by the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation, a hearing will be held on September 24 to consider whether the cases filed in various federal districts throughout the United States involve sufficiently common questions of fact and whether consolidation is appropriate.

The hearing was scheduled in response to a motion filed last month by a group of plaintiffs asking that the Yasmin and Yaz litigation be centralized and consolidated in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio.

There are at least 32 federal Yaz lawsuits or Yasmin lawsuits currently pending against Bayer, which all involve claims that the medications caused women to suffer injuries like heart attacks, strokes, deep vein thrombosis (DVT), pulmonary embolism (PE), gallbladder disease or sudden death. In addition, it is expected that the number of claims will increase substantially in the coming months, as Yaz / Yasmin lawyers are currently investigating hundreds of other cases for women throughout the United States.

Yaz and Yasmin are different from other available birth control pills, as they contain drospirenone, which is a new type of progestin. Drospirenone is used in combination with ethinyl estradiol in the pills to prevent unwanted pregnancy, but it can also increase potassium levels and lead to hyperkalemia, which could increase the risk of various heart and other health problems.

The Yasmin and Yaz lawsuit complaints all contain similar allegations that Bayer failed to adequately research their products, fraudulently concealed the risk of injury, negligently failed to warn about the degree of risk women faced and misrepresented the safety of Yasmine and Yaz in comparison to other available birth control pills.

If the MDL Panel decides to consolidate the Yaz / Yasmin litigation, all of the cases filed in different federal districts throughout the country will be transferred to one court for pretrial litigation. Plaintiffs argue that this will help eliminate inconsistent rulings, avoid repeat discovery on issues common to all cases and serve the convenience of the parties, the witnesses and the courts.

Bayer also faces a number of similar lawsuits over Yas and Yasmin in state courts, which would not be included in any federal MDL that is formed. Plaintiffs in four lawsuits recently filed in Philadelphia are seeking to have Pennsylvania state court cases also consolidated before one judge for similar mass tort treatment.

    I took both Yaz and Yasmin for approximately 7 years and ended up in the emergency room in severe pain. I had to have emergency surgery to have my gall bladder removed and they discovered this also triggered pancreatititis.

Bayer you should be ashamed of yourself and settle all these legal cases. You neglected to warn women of these problems because of simple greed.

I was at my dads and I was having horrible chest pains on my left side along with pains in my left shoulder/ neck area which was a pain associated with the PE. I couldnt breathe, sleep, stand up straight, lie down, or do anything without it hurting. I felt like I was dying and the pain was the worst anyone could ever feel. I had only gotten on the medicine because I am to small to have periods so it was to regulate me. On my way back to my moms I had to have my little brother drive me to the hospital because the pain was horrific. I put up with the pain through 2 days because I thought I was over reacting. When I got to the hospital they couldn't believe what I had and they said if I had waited another hour I would have died. I don't want anyone to take this medicine and it should be taken off the market immediately so no one else has to go through this horrible pain.

Today is exactly a year after stopping of taking that yasmine and i still have the blind spots in my eyes. They bother me, they affect my life and as i found out they will never go away. Who do i contact about that?

I had a temperature for days and I ended up with a number of random viral infections. I went home with cumadin and I had to self inject lovanox in my stomach for months. I was in and out of the hospital for months on end and I was even told I couldn't work for 4 months. I gradually started feeling normal but later to find out that I had a fibroid tumor the size of a baseball growing in me a year later, after I was taken off of Yaz. Due to the extense of my problems I can't take any kind of hormone and I am nearly 30 and I can't get pregnant. I am still young and want a family and thanks to Yaz that more than likely is a dream I have to give up!! LADIES PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM YAZ!!! AND INFORM ALL THE WOMEN IN YOUR LIFE!!

I was always a very healthy girl and never had ANY medical problems, until after I was on YAZ. I have had kidney infections, severe chest pains that wake me up out of a dead sleep in the middle of the night and awful pains in my side, that I thought was just gas. After numerous DR visits, they told me nothing was wrong, it was just gas, take gasX. So I did, the minute the gasX hit my stomach it came back up. So, back to the DR it was, and after hearing that it was just gas...AGAIN, I finally asked if it could be my gallbladder? They sent me for a hida (spelling) scan and sure enough, my gallbladder was working at less than 10%. I had it removed a week later, and besides the pain of the ugly incisions and the pain from the surgery in general, I felt immediate relief. Only now I am living in hell because I cannot eat anything without going straight to the bathroom, most times before I am even done eating. I feel like I cannot go anywhere or do anything in fear of having to GO. One night I was watching TV and saw the ad for a law firm regarding YAZ causing gallbladder disease, and I knew right away it had to be from that. I am still taking YAZ, because I have not been to the DR to get it changed and I am still experiencing sharp chest pains often. I go to the DR to get off this crap this week and I hope that lawyers can help compensate me for the medicine that has RUINED my life. PLEASE tell everyone women you know to STAY AWAY!!!!

My husband took me to the hospital, but they only came up with a really bad bladder infection. Since I've been off the Yaz and Birth Control Pills all together, I have had nothing but constant heavy bleeding and periods between periods. I went to another doctor and have tried everything to put me into a normal cycle, and nothing has worked. Has anyone else had these long term effects?

Also after i started taking yaz, my moods where so up and down that I had to see my doctor for anti-anxiety pills. Could I have side effects from taking this pill for 4+ years?

While waiting to been seen in the emergency room, I was still in excruciating pain and still had no idea what was going on. When I was finally seen about 2 hours later and after all their testing, it was concluded that my gall bladder was infected and needed to be removed or it was going to burst. I missed 3 full days of work and had to sleep sitting up for the next few days because there was alot of pain when I would lay flat. I started to take yaz after that, but I would feel very sick after I would take them and decided I wouldnt finish the pack I had and just use another method for birth control. I found out later that my mother had the same thing happen to her after taking the same pills and had to have her gall bladder removed as well... I couldnt believe that it was just a coincidence and to see all these people writing the same thing makes me very suspicious.

However, I often complained of exteme cramping and dizziness, so I was put on another pill in February 2009. However, in December 2008, after months of stomach problem, I had to have emergency surgery for my appendix. This seemed to fix the problem, or so I thought. I started having problems again in early spring of 2009. I had thought it was from the stress of finding a new job and planning a wedding. It turns out that my gull bladder was functioning at 13%. That had to be removed in November 2009. I hope this is the end of the side effects.

    My 18 yr. old daughter has been on Yaz for over a year, then switched to Ocella due to cost. She had to have her gall bladder removed on New Year's Eve because of 'sludge' in her gall bladder. I am have been told that it is highly unusual for a girl this young to have gall bladder problems - coincidence? What steps should I take? I can't afford an attorney.

    I was placed on Yaz back in 2007, after a hysterectomy. Less than 6 months after having starting Yaz, I started having problems with my gallbladder, had all kinds of test performed but it never showed any gallstones, however, the problem was that my gallbladder had stopped functioning, it was only at 8%, I was in surgery within days of that finding. All of this happened after starting Yaz.

I am still sick even after this surgery and I am afraid of what else the doctors are missing. I have nuasea almost all the time and have no energy to do anything.

In 2007 I carried and delivered twins to full term and decided that I would stay off of contraceptionshortly after my divorce. When I expressed a concern to my OB/GYN to start oral contraception due to excessive mesntrual flow, he wrote for Yaz and not knowing any better, I took it but only for 3 months. Once my insurance would't cover it, I switched over to another form of BC and shortly thereafter can the terrifying near-death experience. It has been 7 months of Coumadin (oral blood-thinner) and Lovenox (SC abdominal injections twice a day) and they have yet to get my blood on a therapeutic level. The standing recommendation is that I get off the meds at the end of the year but I am truly terrified that this can happen to me again. I hope that this gets looked into thoroughly as I wouldn't want anyone to ever go through this horriying experience as I am now faced w a potentially life-long condition and added side effects for the drugs that would help keep me alive.

So you may not be able to be put on a different method once this has happened to you.
