By and large, birth control pills and devices are a huge convenience for millions of women who rely on them for protection against unwanted pregnancies. However, many of these prescription drugs and medical devices can result in serious and sometimes even life-threatening injuries.
Yaz and other birth control pills containing DRSP (drospirenone) have been shown to cause blood clots and other serious cardiovascular side effects. These complications, including pulmonary embolism and deep vein thrombosis, were common and severe enough for the FDA to add a black box warning to Yaz.
Birth control pills are not the only forms of contraception that have received attention for serious side effects. Intrauterine devices such as Mirena have also been linked to severe adverse events. Because the IUD is a medical device that is inserted and remains in the uterine cavity, women have reported incidents of device migration, organ perforation, and serious infections.
Thousands of women who have been seriously injured by these drugs and devices have filed lawsuits against the manufacturers.
