The courts in Canada have certified a class-action suit against Bayer, maker of Yaz and Yasmin with 13 more pending. Class action lawsuits aggregate a number of individual cases into one representative lawsuit. Health Canada records indicate 23 deaths and 600 adverse reactions among women taking Yaz or Yasmin BCPs (birth control pills) between 2007 and Feb. 28, 2013.

Both Health Canada and Society of OB/GYN note that medical proof has not yet been established. Yaz and Yasmin have not been proven to have caused the adverse events and at this time the Society of OB/GYN’s CEO states, “…that the pills are safe and effective.”
