Women who became pregnant while taking Pfizer’s contraceptives are now suing. Pfizer issued a recall notice because some of the drugs were improperly packaged. However, this has left many with pregnancies and a life-changing experience even though they were responsible. Pfizer recalled one million packages of birth control pills, Lo/Ovral, and Norgestrel and Ethinyl Estradiol tablets.
The defective table packages included pills that were out of sequences or the wrong number of inert pills was included. This left women unprotected for several days each month. Consequently, women became pregnant. The women who are suing are suing for the compensation necessary to deal with the consequences. This could include doctor bills, loss of pay, baby expenses and more.
