I know Yaz has received a lot of negative hype over the last few years, but I have been taking Yaz on and off for the last 5 years, and I have to say, Yaz is amazing! I never had any health problems from it, no side effects,I never ever had one pimple on my face. I absolutely love Yaz and recommend it! Don't let those commercials scare you!

I started taking Yaz when I was about 21 and loved it. It helped lighten my periods and controlled my acne. I had no qualms about it.

Comment:
Yaz was the first birth control I had ever been on so obviously I was nervous. My doc recommended it to me to prevent pregnancy and to help clear up some mild acne. Upon taking the pill, my acne DID get a lot worse and didn't clear up till about my 5th month taking Yaz. I was extremely discouraged due to how bad my acne had gotten (instead of better) but I gave it a couple more months and it d ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Pros: it prevented pregnancy and was easy to take. Cons: Took it for 2 months and I already had mild acne that I was trying to clear up. My acne got worse and I started getting huge painful continuous cysts underneath my skin (I had never gotten cysts before). It took 2 to 3 weeks for each one to heal. My blood pressure was abnormally high when it's usually pretty low, (got it checked twice), ... Show Full Comment
