The birth control pill Yaz that once was all over commercials and online has being not only an effective form of birth control but also claimed to help with the symptoms of Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder or PMDD has now made the news because of serious side effects and possible false claims. Yaz contains drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol. These levels of hormones have been known to cause some serious side effects that the Yaz commercials did not really seem to tell consumers enough about. Bayer’s company intentions were good and the marketing was great, but has it really been worth all the concern and controversy over the Yaz birth control pill now? Some consumers on Yaz are now scared or afraid to take it based on reports they have read or seen. Some people that are taking it now even say that it did not help them with their PDD symptoms as much as the ads and commercials claimed it would. Marketing is important and money is important, but consumer’s right to accurate information and proper warnings should always come first. Without a consumer’s trust, there is no product to sell. I believe Bayer has to regain their trust in many consumers that trusted the Yaz ads and commercials. They have a long way to go before they do.
