I just had my Paragard IUD removed two months ago in favor or something that doesn't make me randomly spot or have cramps/backache. On this pill my periods went from a week to about five days and it's incredibly light! I'm not used to that, so it's nice. Overall, I'd recommend this BCP.

I'VE BEEN USING THIS BIRTH CONTROL FOR ABOUT 6 MONTHS AND I HAVE HAD LOTS OF MOOD SWINGS. I'VE BEEN VERY IRRITABLE. I HAVE CRAMPS AND LOSS OF SEXUAL APPETITE. I ALSO SPOT A WEEK BEFORE MY PERIOD IS SCHEDULED TO COME.

Comment:
I was on Yaz for three years and switched because of the negative press and my friend taking it had her Gallbladder removed. All my friends switching off Yaz all tried something different.
