    Unlike many of the other commenters, I am not a new mom. I began having peri-menopausal symptoms and was prescribed Yaz. My blood pressure got too high to continue and I switched to Jolivette. Since starting it more than a year ago, I have fewer mood swings and more regular periods. They are not regular--just more regular than they were due to perimenopause!

    I had my daughter 7 months ago and thus far the pill has been doing its job. Besides the headache and periodic backache I've adjusted well. I've also been getting my periiod every month since I started the pill. I like this pill since there are much less serious side effects.
