Yaz Birth Control Concerns Continue

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.

Death Being Investigated of Woman who Took Yaz Birth Control

The Bayer AG company in Germany is having its Yaz Pill investigated by the Swiss Health regulator has part of the reason a woman may have died. The woman was said to die from the effects of a pulmonary embolism and had been taking the pill for ten months. These types of problems are the rare but serious side effects of taking hormone-based contraceptives such as Yaz. It is true that just because this one woman may have died due in part as a result of Yaz, that not all woman are at risk by taking Yaz. This story though among others makes people start to wonder why the Bayer Company tried to cover up the serious side effects of this pill. Is it because money truly talks and Yaz is a huge money maker for Bayer? Or is it because all birth control pills have their risks so they did not see the need to mention them? Or finally is it because they really did not think the risks of this Yaz Birth Control pill were that serious? Whatever the case, people should know all the risks of any medicine they take, big or small, no matter how good the medicine may be or how much money the company may make. Consumers have the right to know what they are consuming.
