As of August 11th, 2014, nearly 5,000 lawsuits involving the use of Yaz and Yasmin have yet to be settled. Bayer Pharmaceutical has doled out more than $1.8 billion in settlements with more suits to come. The basis of these suits stem from the plaintiff assertions of improper notification of side effects, which include deep vein thrombosis, blood clots, heart attack, and stroke.
