For those who take Yaz... Any side effects?

I'm halfway through my second month of taking Yaz. I've noticed that the last week or so I've had pretty constant headaches and some nausea. I looked up the side effects online, but of course any minor physical aliment is a possible side effect. Has anyone else had this with Yaz? Does it go away or should I talk to my Dr. about switching?

  • If it's cuasing headaches I"d switch. I was on a pill that did that and was much happier after the switch. I was on Yaz and Yasmin for a while but had issues with spotting for weeks at a time. I'm not a new pill now and only spot 3 days just before I start. Much better, but still annoying.

  • Yaz made me sick, and no joke, hairy. About 2 months after I stopped taking it the extra hairiness went away, lol.
