FDA OKs Bayer contraceptive for heavy bleeding

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved the use of German corporation Bayer’s birth control pill Natazia for the treatment of heavy menstrual bleeding, according to RTTNews.

The report quotes Bayer’s Dr. Flemming Ornskov as saying: “As the first combined oral contraceptive treatment for heavy menstrual bleeding, Natazia represents a non-invasive treatment approach for this medical condition in addition to our intrauterine system Mirena. Both products underline Bayer’s ongoing commitment to advancing women’s health by providing them with multiple treatment options.”

Other birth control pills from Bayer have recently served as the basis of lawsuits from more than 10,000 patients who claim the pharmaceutical giant failed to adequately warn them that its contraceptives bring an increased risk of potentially fatal blood clots, strokes and pulmonary embolisms. Of concern are birth control pills containing the synthetic hormone drospirenone, including Yaz, Yasmin, Beyaz and Ocella.

If you or someone you love developed a blood clot, stroke, or pulmonary embolism while taking Yaz, Yasmin, Beyaz, or Ocella, you may be eligible to recover damages.
