  • I was on Yaz for nearly a year and has no issues with it.

    Talk to your doctor and see what other brand may be better for you. Yaz has actually come out with new commercials that clear up some things. It's for pregnancy prevention and the treatment of PMDD which is different from PMS. So if you don't really have PMDD and it's giving you problems, I would just switch. It's also made with a hormone that's different from other BC pills so maybe that's the problem.

    I didn't suffer from PMDD but I did notice it helped my (mild) acne and I was a little less bitchy.

  • My only complaint, was that when i first started i bled for 12 days, but ive never broken out or been bloated, it actually took my bloat away
