I took Yaz for 4 months and I HATED it. Its effective in preventing pregnancy but when I was taking it I would have my period one month for like 2-3 weeks and then the next month not have one at all. It went back and forth like that the whole time. I wouldnt reccommend it to anyone unless you dont mind having your period for 2-3 weeks. But i dont think anyone likes their period.

Comment:
This is supposed to treat symptoms of PMDD, but I experienced SEVERE mood swings for the first time while on this drug. I cried everyday for several hours a day and seriously considered seeking therapy and anti depressants to control my moods. I also had terrible acne breakouts, worse than when I was a teenager. As soon as I went of Yaz, my mood stabilized, my acne cleared up, and I am back to ... Show Full Comment
