    I originally took Yaz for acne when I was 12...I have been on it for 8 years and for the past year my sex drive has tanked. It worked great for acne and I didn't gain any weight. I had regular periods. I switched to Junel FE in hopes to get my sex drive back on track..to go from extremely active to not wanting anything at all is extemely unsettling, especially since I am only 20.

    I have been on Yaz or a generic for over 10 years now. I have had no side effects, and have not gotten pregnant. I have no period and no breakthrough bleeding. I have no mood swings or acne.

    Terrible reaction after only 3 days. Arm and hand numb with tingling. Shortness of breath, fast heartbeat. So sorry I took this pill in the first place. I stopped taking it after 3 days
