The lawyer on the class action suit explains:
Merchant said the number of deaths potentially associated with Yasmin or Yaz may be largely underreported because doctors may not realize there is a link between the cause of death and the risks of the pills.
Doctors prescribe the Pill at the drop of the hat. So yes, I’ll agree that they don’t realize the link. A good book to read is Barbara Seaman’s The Greatest Experiment Ever Performed on Women if you are interested in understanding why the Pill is not terribly good for women’s health.by
