Unexpected Side Effects for Women on Birth Control

For years millions of women have been convinced by various ads to switch to Yaz birth control pills. Unfortunately, many of these women have suffered from mild side effects like nausea and cramping while countless others have been dealing with more severe side effects:

  • Migraines;
  • Vaginal yeast infections;
  • unusual vaginal discharge;
  • Irregular non-menstrual bleeding;
  • Hair loss;
  • Less sexual desire;

Although the makers of Yaz have spent millions on new ads correcting old promises, the FDA continues to warn that women taking Yaz are at increased risk of blood clots. You can view a short video of an ABC Nightline Investigation on the birth control pill, and its effects, here.

Thousands of women are suing the drug manufacturers either independently or jointly through MDL No. 2100, In re Yasmin And Yaz (Drospireone) Marketing, Sales Practices, and Relevant Products Liability Litigation.

Client Reviews
Carolyn Frank and her firm represented me on a workers compensation injury case, under the defense base act. She did a excellent job from the moment I contacted her until 3 years later the case was settled. Every benefit I was entitled too, Carolyn fought hard to secure. E-mails and phone calls were always returned promptly. Definitely 5 star rating. Daniel
Highly recommending Carolyn Frank would be an understatement. Being careful as to whom I would give my case to as I had dedicated most of my adult life to one company. I needed someone who would work for me, value my case and my needs. Carolyn Frank and her valued staff met all of the above. From the first meeting I knew I was in the right office. Her knowledge, professionalism and what I would soon find to be outstanding dedication to my case from her and her staff were second to none. Marcos G.
Mr. Friedman was my choice after a dog bite attack. Him and his firm took on my case in a very professional matter without lacking empathy. I felt like he and his team personally cared for me and they kept me up to date on every step of the process. The outcome was great and I am very happy that I have chosen them. I already have recommended them to my friends and family and if you are looking for legal support I highly recommend a meeting with the firm. Any first time consultation is free, ( to my knowledge). So what do you have to lose. Give them a call! You'll be in great hands. Nora N.
Caroyln's expertise and compassion got me through a very trying period of my life. She is an excellent lawyer and human being. 5 Star all the way! Lois H.
I met Carolyn Frank about three years ago. Once I met her I knew she was the attorney I needed to handle my case.When we met with her the first time we were there for at least two hours. When I left her office I knew she was the right person to handle my case.At that time my case was 22 years old and I needed someone who knew what they were doing. This was a complex case and it fell under the Long shore Act..There are not many attorneys that handle this type of case in Florida. Mike P.
