According to a new study, the amount of evidence related to the dangerous side effects of the Yaz birth control pill has increased. This pill was very popular at first but with the rise of information about the dangerous side effects, the sales have decreased. However, the Bayer Company who produced the medication has not recalled the product as of now. Information from a new study published on June 14, 2012 in The New England Journal of Medicine, has revealed that the overall risk of stroke relating to the drug is low, however, it revealed that women taking the Yaz pill containing drospirenone show an elevated risk of stroke than those people not taking hormonal contraceptive pills.

Several women that have developed dangerous side effects after using the Yaz pill have filed lawsuits against the Bayer Company. Studies just like this one as well as studies conducted by the Food and Drug Administration in October of 2011 are being used as evidence for women that hope to receive compensation for their suffering.
