Yaz may cause side effects such as heart attack, stroke, pulmonary embolism, and gall bladder diseaseABC News has reported that Bayer AG reported a profit of nearly $400 million from July to September 2010 (up 12 % over last year) despite ongoing health safety concerns over side effects from its popular Yaz and Yasmin birth control pills that can result in heart attack, stroke and gallbladder disease.

According to ABC, Bayer is continuing to heavily market these birth control pills despite the serious health risks and has set aside 50 million Euro for "anticipated defense costs" related to these drugs. One Wall Street analyst called the litigation set-aside "a negative disappointment, but a one-time issue."

Eyewitness News 5 in Oklahoma City recently featured a segment on Yaz side effects and serious health risks.

Yaz, Yasmin and Ocella combine estrogen with the synthetic progestin Drospirenone. No other oral contraceptive (or birth control pill) contains Drospirenone. The combination of chemicals in Yaz, Yasmin and Ocella have been linked to potentially deadly side effects.
