YAZ birth control pills have become the main player in a class action law suit against the company that produces it. Yaz, Yazmin, and the Nueva ring are all part of this law suit. Many women have died and have gotten liver problems as a result of this drug. Yaz causes blood clots in the lungs and heart failure is the result. You can contact this lawyer reference for information:
3 of the law firms that are working on the class action suite are:
Robinson, Calcagnie & Robinson Law Firm
South Florida Trial Lawyers
The Law Firm of Johnson, Leiter & Belsky
You really need to look for another form of birth control. Also, realize that all birth control pills cause a woman to become vitamin B-6 deficient. If you do not eat meat, you will be vitamin B-12 deficient and if you have taken any antibiotics, you will be folic acid deficient. All three of these items, when deficient, cause homocystein proteins to increase in the blood and this causes "sticky blood" and "sticky arterial walls" that cause plaque build up and heart disease.
Drug companies do NOT care about your health or well being, only PROFITS. If you don't believe this, just see what the Bayer pharmaceutical company did when they knew the AIDS virus was in their injection medication for hemophiliacs:
Merck pharmaceutical company hid all kinds of data from the FDA when they submitted the VIOXX drug for approvals. They knew thousands of people would die from that drug, but hid the information and 160,000 people died before the FDA removed it from the market. Merck was fined and that was the end of it. The FDA is not our friend.
Birth control pills have not been tested for the long term and you simply cannot trust drug companies to look out for your health. One day in the future when you wake up to find you have a serious medical problem and never relate it to that birth control pill, you may then look back and ask yourself, "Was it worth it?"
The next thing is to realize that drugs are not tested for interactions with other multiple drugs or herbs. Unfortunately, you are on your own in regard to St.John's Wort herb because I know of NO long term study in that regard. I've heard there are some short term interactions, but who really knows.
Also be aware:
In July 2004, Gary Null Ph.D, Carolyn Dean M.D., N.D, Martin Feldman M.D., Debora Rasio M.D., Dorothy Smith Ph.D. wrote a paper that revealed very disturbing facts regarding an annual iatrogenic (induced inadvertently by a physician or surgeon or by medical treatment or diagnostic procedures) death rate of 783,936 in one year. It is further disturbing to realize that as few as 5 percent and only up to 20 percent of iatrogenic acts are ever reported. This means that that iatrogenic death rate of 783,936 is most likely much higher.
As we look at the causes of death from degenerative diseases and other causes in America in 2004, it is obvious we are not good at solving this problem on any level.
When comparing the iatrogenic acts of modern medicine in America with the statistical numbers of people dying of any particular disease, it is evident that the American medical system is the leading cause of death and injury in the United States. And when we look at the cost of these iatrogenic deaths, the cost is in the billions.
good luck to you
It depends on the nature of your legal issue. Also their services are available only to people who are indigent or below a certain income threshold. Legal aid lawyers who deal with criminal cases are more frequently referred to as public defenders. Most legal aid lawyers do not do divorce and custody cases. There may be law school clinics that could help if they are not too far away.
