Canadian woman files lawsuit against Bayer

An Okanagan woman plans to file a lawsuit against the maker of the birth control pill Yasmin after she was diagnosed with a pulmonary embolism.
Sarah Somerville experienced an adverse reaction after only a month of taking the birth control pill Yasmin that caused her to exhibit heart attack symptoms. When she sought medical attention at Kelowna General Hospital, a doctor told her that she had suffered a pulmonary embolism. Discharge papers from the hospital did note that obesity, sedentary lifestyle, and birth control pills were the three main reasons why Somerville had the pulmonary embolism.
Somerville now plans to join the class action suit against the drug giant Bayer and seeks to have Yasmin removed from the market.
Unfortunately, in the U.S. alone there are many women who have been negatively impacted by the birth control pill Yasmin.
