  • I haven't heard of it being recalled. I heard a lawyer on TV saying to call him if you had certain side effects of the patch and Yaz even though people took the BC knowing that those were side effects. But, people are still using the patch and Yaz....

  • Nope. I have been on Yaz for about 3 years and have no problems. The reason there is a lawsuit with Yaz and Yasmin is because stupid people don't read the inserts to know what the risks of taking ANY birth control are and when they had issues they sued. ALL birth control has the same side effects, as does any medication that is taken.

  • I took Yaz for 2 years and the only side effect I got was pregnant... lol All birth control has side effects & a "less than" 100% success rate. Don't whine if you don't read the label.
