Yaz & Yasmin Face Lawsuits for Alleged Side Effects; Answers Remain Elusive

Yaz, the top-selling oral contraceptive in America, was introduced to the market in 2006 because it, along with its earlier 2001 counterpart Yasmin, was thought to cause fewer side effects than other birth control pills (such as anxiety, depression and headaches). The main difference between the two pills is that Yaz contains 24 active pills, while Yasmin contains 21. Replacing more of the inactive pills with active ones is thought to decrease some of the annoying symptoms women experience before and during their period.

Despite the pills' popularity, the Los Angeles Times reports that approximately 1,100 lawsuits had been filed against the pills' maker, Bayer Healthcare, by mid-February 2010. The lawsuits present the results of two studies on the synthetic hormone drospirenone, found in both Yaz and Yasmin, which allege that the hormone causes health problems including blood clots, strokes, heart attacks and gallbladder disease.

Bayer Healthcare, meanwhile, upholds the safety of the pill. Two Bayer-sponsored studies found drospirenone to be just as safe as other comparable synthetic hormones.

While the debate has yet to be resolved, the whole situation makes those five pounds you gained when you went on the pill seem not quite so significant.

After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there.
