The Yaz birth control pill has been linked to serious side effects such as strokes, blood clots, gall bladder problems and heart attacks. Deceptive Yaz commercials prompted the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) to issue Bayer a warning letter for false advertising. Unfortunately, the correction came too late for many women who had believed Bayer's false Yaz promises.

Bayer's Yaz campaign not only made false claims about the benefits of the drug, it also downplayed the very serious side effects including blood clots, strokes, gall bladder problems and heart attacks known to be associated with Yaz. Millions of women took Yaz without being fully aware of the drug's significant side effects and health risks. The side effects of Yaz include:

  • blood clots in the legs (DVT)
  • blood clots in the lungs (Pulmonary embolism)
  • stroke
  • heart attack
  • gall bladder disease
  • pancreatitis
