  • I did gain a little bit of weight on Yaz...maybe like 5 or 10lbs. That was the least of my worries with that pill though. I had a headache, stomachache, or both for a year and half straight.

  • Not at all!!!!!!!! It is a MYTH that birth control pills cause weight gain. I do retain water about a week before my period but I have always done that, being on BC pills or not. I have not gained weight on any birth control pill. I LOVE Yaz.
