YASMIN and YAZ
- At this time, it is Health Canada's view that the benefits of these contraceptive pills (birth control pills) continue to outweigh the risks when used according to the approved labelling instructions. The risk of blood clots with these products is well known and is included in the drug label. Health Canada is taking steps to communicate with both health care providers and patients about these risks. Health Canada is continuing to monitor the safety of all drugs on the market, including birth control pills. If you have questions, please talk to your health care provider or contact the Sexual Health clinic.
