I started taking this pill after switching off from Ortho try cyclen lo, on which I was bleeding constantly. At firs I was happy, then I started missing my periods.

I am on the last week of my third pack of these pills. I switched from Ortho TriCylen Lo because I started having a lot of breakthrough bleeding on it so my doctor prescribed me to this monophasic pill. The first two months of this pill were good.

I put somewhat effiective on this because I jsut started the pills so Im not 100% how effective they really are. Im into my second week of my pills and I all of a sudden started bleeding out of nowhere. I was on Yaz for a good 3-4 years and never had this issue. Ive broken out on my face this last week and I am extremely moody. Moody to the point where it worries me and who I am around. I want to ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
The medication was very effective in preventing pregnancy. The side effects were awful for me though. I gained eleven pounds, was constatly bloated, and had frequent mood swings. I would go to the gym for hours and watch my diet but that had no effect on the weight gain. Of course I almost instantly lost it all once I stopped taking this pill. If it wasn't for the weight gain I would still be ... Show Full Comment
