I am on my fourth month on Yaz and i LOVE it! I have had no negative side effects other than for the first week i was very tired and had very light spotting for the first month. My acne has cleared up, i barley have any blackheads, zero weight gain, my boobs filled out, my period is lighter with no moodiness, and best of all No Lowered Sex Drive!! I would highly recommend trying it out.
