When first taking this drug, I was a bit nervous after having read so many negative reviews. Needless to say, this birth control has actually worked wonderfully for me thus far and I am going on my third month of use.

I've only been using this particular pill for a few months. I have terrible acne, feel depressed, my mood is just generally bad, I find myself being easily irritated, I have leg cramps, back pain and extended periods with spotting in between. Needless to say, I won't be on this very much longer.

I am getting off this drug ASAP. It's absolutely horrible. I cry at the drop of a hat, I have stomach aches, headaches, moodiness, anxiety...I've been taking it for six months and I thought I was just stressed out because of school but then I realized that it was the pills because I had never been that way before.

I have been on this BC for a little over a month now. I have a problem with headches already and a couple of weeks after taking this BC, my headaches have started intensifying and are not going away. For me, this bc has def contributed to worsening my headaches to almost a non bearable point. I am stopping this BC all together.. I never had these issues when I use to be on YAZ.
