Finally a pill that didn't cause weight gain and made my skin blemish free. I did have a problem with pms mood swings before taking yaz and now that went away too. I am happy with this pill as well as its off-label uses. I am planning on staying on it for as long as my doctor will let me.

I've been taking Yaz (and before that, Yasmin) for years and I've never had a problem. Previously, I tried the generic for Yasmin and it gave me horrible headaches. With Yaz I have clear skin, light periods, no decrease in sex drive. I would definitely recommend it, except for the higher blood clot risk, which kind of scares me.
