In Nasville, TN a twenty-year old college student who had been on Yaz for about six months developed blood clot in her lung and died. She was in her junior year at Tennessee Tech and was just one of many women who have suffered the side-effects of Yaz.
The official cause of death was a pulmonary embolism, or blood clot in the lung. Increased risk of blood-clots is one of the side-effects of Yaz.
The woman’s family has since filed suit against Bayer, makers of Yaz. Attorneys can’t bring their daughter back, but they are seeking justice, and hope to warn others about the dangers associated with Yaz.
Unfortunately, this family isn’t the only one to suffer this loss. Lawsuits against the makers of Yaz continue to grow and death rates climb.
