Studies done by the British Medical Journal have found that contain drospirenone and desogestrel, which are hormones, have twice the risk of potentially fatal injuries. These hormones are found in the birth control Yaz, Yasmin and Ocella. Studies show that these products, manufactured by Bayer, caused a six-fold increase of blood clots.
In 2008 alone Yaz and Yasmin had sales of $1 Billion. Bayer is the most popular in hormonal contraceptives. Even though this is true Yaz is quite dangerous and has the potential for more side effects than older contraceptives. The problem with this is that Bayer concealed the side effects of Yaz and over-emphasized its benefits. Consumers were experiencing side effects that they did know was a potential side effect.
