FDA approves yet another new birth control pill; are they paying attention?

The FDA has approved a new birth control pill from Bayer Healthcare Phamaceuticals, Inc. The new pill, which will be marketed as Beyaz, was approved amid growing concerns about the increased risk of blood clots and other injuries from side effects of similar birth control pills Yaz and Yasmin which contain the same “fourth” generation progestin that will be used in Beyaz and the birth control patch Ortho Evra, about which I blogged recently (here).
