Special Segment: Birth Control Concerns

Patient Evangeline Semark Lemoine is coping with frustration. She says until about a year ago, she was a healthy person. But now, even simple activities with her family can be challenging.

“I don’t have the carefree lifestyle that I had,” she said.

The 32-year-old mom says she’s now on a powerful blood thinner after developing a dangerous blood clot called a deep vein thrombosis in her leg.

Evangeline says it left her unable to walk, and after a phone call, resulted in her doctor advising her to get to an emergency room.

“The first thing out of her mouth was, ‘Are you on a birth control pill?” and I said, ‘Yes,’ and she said, ‘You need to get to the ER right now.'”

Lemoine, now a plaintiff, and her attorney say dangerous clots were also found in her lungs. They’re suing Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals and Teva Pharmaceutical Industries, blaming her health problems on the birth control pill Ocella, which is the generic form of Yasmin.
