    Starting taking Yaz because my last birth control started to break my face out. After three months my skin was clear. I'm not moody. I have super light periods for about 3 days and I haven't gained any weight.

    I took this pill for a total of 2 years. It was effective in preventing pregnancy but I suffered from severe mood swings and random burts of anger that were uncalled for. I won't be taking this pill again.

    I have used Yaz for 3 years and I'm loving it. My skin is flawless, my periods are lite, I have a high sex drive. Previous pills I was on I battled with low sex drive, I was always Dry when when having sex and I suffered from nausea every day. I don't see see myself changing from this pill.

    Cleared my face up, but caused vaginal dryness which made sex a nightmare. My vagina just couldn't produce enough lubrication, and no matter how much lube we used, I'd still swell for days afterwards. Back to condoms for now as I find it's just not worth it.

    I do not understand why so many women love this stuff. After three months of taking this pill I started getting UTIs. Prior to taking this I took Ortho Tri-Cyclen for many years. I never had a UTI in my life. Every other month I would get them. I finally stopped taking the Yaz, (for insurance reasons (at the time there was no generic)).
