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

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 blood pressure was abnormally high when it's usually pretty low, (got it checked twice), ... Show Full Comment

I have been on SEVERAL different types of birth control over the past 15 years, and Yaz has been the VERY BEST ONE of Any of it!!!!! Cleared up my skin, no mood changes, no lowered sex drive, light periods, etc. the ONLY downside was spotting between periods. But I can handle that!! I LOVE this pill! Been on it 5 years!

Comment:
I had extreme weight gain when taking Yaz (I've also tried Ortho Tri-Cyclen, which I hated but at least that one didn't make me gain weight). I think overall I gained close to 15lbs on it (without changing my diet at all). Otherwise, Yaz did not affect my mood whatsoever.

Comment:
I just stopped taking Yaz. It made me have menopausal symptoms and I thought I was going insane! (I'm in my late 20's) I experienced night sweats, hot and cold flashes during the day, it made my period nearly inexistent, severe mood swings and irritability, loss of libido (except during the second week), fatigue, severe insomnia, dizziness, memory lapses, irregular heartbeat, breast ...
