Heavy periods on yaz

Common Questions and Answers about Heavy periods on yaz


Avatar n tn That's what I did, and I'm having a super-heavy-long period right now, too. I was on Yaz for a while, then off it for a few months, and I just went back on. I remember the long period happening last time, too. It'll even out after a while.
Avatar m tn I have been on YAZ birth control for about 2 years now and have always had my periods right on time for maybe 4-5 days and it is always very light. BUT...This month i am right in the middle of my pack so i shouldn't start my period for another week and a half but i started it about 6 days ago and it has been HORRIBLY HEAVY! I couldnt get an appointment with my doctor until the 8th of next month and i just want some advise on what to do....
Avatar f tn Since then, my periods haven't been 100% regular and it also differs a lot with how heavy it is. So based on this, I'm either 4 days late (heavy periods) or 1 day late (very light, almost no bleeding). I've been taking my pill religiously since I started back in 99. Should I be worried that I just have extreme cramps and no bleeding?
Avatar m tn There are women who have been affected by being on Yaz that are launching law suits. Yaz can cause blood clots . My advice is to quickly find another family doctor who can help you get off the Yaz safely, so make that appointment immediately. If your period has been going on for a month and 9 days, you need to find a new family doctor. Maybe you could even go to an after hours clinic as a temporary measure while you find a new family doctor.
Avatar f tn Extensive, long as 3 weeks periods for the first few months '(to limit this I made sure I took it bet 8 and 9 am every morning 2: Heavy heavy bleeding with clots. Apparently the blood flow is not even supposed to clot since your body wants the memses to get out, but if the bleeding is too heavy your body reponds by clotting the blood in the uterus, so it comes out as GLOBS! I have never in my life had this kind of heavy flow before.
Avatar f tn I ended up getting horrible acne a few months after going off, and I eventually had to go back on birth control pills when I was 17-18 to help my acne since nothing else worked. The pill that I was on then was Yaz, and I figured out that it made my cheeks flush, so I went off of it when I was 19-20. My skin is now breaking out again and I have my period every two weeks. I don't really have any cramps and my period lasts 4-7 days. It isn't really heavy.
Avatar n tn I am on my second week of Yaz-put on it for really bad PMS and extremely heavy periods. (When my period came back after having my daughter and nursing her for a year, my PMS symptoms got progressively worse each month.) Now, on YAZ, I am having mood swings from extreme calm to extreme anxiety (close to full blown panic attack) and back again. I am easily irritated and have had heart palpatations since the second day on this medicine.
Avatar f tn October 15 - Started YAZ, also my first day of period (4 days light period only) November 10 - Period came November 11 - Last day of YAZ (first pack) November 12 - First pill of second pack of YAZ very heavy bleeding November 13 VERY HEAVY BLEEDING November 14, 15, 16, 17, 18 Regular bleeding Nov19- 27 light bleeding Nov 28 bleeding gone I went to my OB November 24 and advised me to take my remaining YAZ 3x a day.
Avatar n tn I had the same thing with the Yaz. I was on Yasmin and switched to Yaz and promptly gained about 5 or more pounds. No problems at all with Yasmin, and I was on it for 5 or more years. I still work out like I did on Yasmin, and I've never eaten a lot, although, the Yaz does make me hungry all the time, and I can't seem to get rid of this bloating. I spot constantly and cramp. I have another friend that is the same way.
Avatar f tn With the 2nd I hemorrhaged twice. Got back on the pill (Yaz) and hemorrhaged again at my 1st period. The doc had me take my pills 3 for 3 days, 2 for 3 days and then resume normal package. I spotted the whole month, felt like I had PMS and had acne. So I got my period again, this time very heavy, clotty, and it seems like I have gushes that immediately fill a tampon and then I won't bleed and then another gush. Very strange for me.
Avatar f tn Hi, I'm 21 years old and I have tried a few different types of birth control to help ONE problem (yaz, ortho novum, nuva ring.) In the past 18 months I have seen 4 different GYNO's, had blood drawn and ultrasounds done. I had a period, while on ACTIVE birth control pills, lasting 3 months last year, after that, I have my first period of the month and it last 10-14 days, then 3-7 days later I start yet another menstrual cycle normally lasting 5-8 days.
Avatar f tn EVERYTHING i found was about other forums where 9 out of 10 women were actually having more complications that before getting on yaz! i thought about getting on this, and after reading all of those posts/replies on the other forums, HE** NO!!!!!! i found 1 woman whose been on it since 2006, and has had absolute horrible periods, migraines twice a month, diareah(sp?
Avatar f tn I was using it to regulate my somtimes wacky cycles (I used to have 20 day cycles when I was a teen), and to cure the VERY severe pain during periods. During my last few years on the pill, my periods were shortened to two to three days and were very light. However I started getting migranes and decided to stop taking it. I'm on my period now only 23 days after my last one, and it's pretty darn heavy. During the day I replaced super tampons on an hourly basis.
Avatar n tn but after it just got heavier..not so heavy like heavy heavy periods but i would say is medium heavy and bright red..not dark..with some little clots not as much as my regular periods..so i dont know anymore im really confused..its my first time having sex without protection..i am 18 years old..i just need some help..i wanna know if i could be implantation bleeding or just my darn period..i just dont get why on the day of my period i spotted once in a wipe..and then 10 days after im bleeding...
Avatar f tn I expected to bleed some after I stopped, but I am not sure that is should be this heavy. I started bleeding two days after I stopped the pill. That was three days ago. I am on my third day of bleeding and it doesn't seem to be sloowing down at all. I can't remember what happened last time I stopped taking BC. Is it normal to have heavy bleeding? If so, how long should it last and when should I be concerned? I just feel like I am bleeding a really large amount.
Avatar n tn Based on what I learned in pharmacology class, I wouldn't try anything younger than 10 years on the market either. My experiences have been fine and I have been on the pill since 2009 for my heavy cycles and the debilitating symptoms my periods gave me. I could not function the first three or so days so I asked for it. I've also experienced no blood clots. I'm on Microgestin.
286776 tn?1268877932 Oh god yea when i was on ortho i felt fine but my periods lasted 2 wks straight-and were heavy. And a week before my period i usually feel sick so basically i had one wk a month i could relax..it was ridiculous...And i know i havent been on birth control and my period is a day late already and im paranoid..i think its stress tho..i cant imagine having any more kids for a while.
Avatar n tn So where do I go from here. My normal period is very heavy and last a week thats the point of me going back on Depo. I'm thinking of getting off of it. I tried Yaz but that didnt work out very well it caused other people to know when I am on my period.
Avatar m tn I was previously on Yaz and started having some issues so my doctor switched me to Nuvaring. She told me to use it continuously but to give myself a 1 week break every now and then. So I did on Dec. 6 of last year. A week later I put a ring back in and my bleeding never stopped. It was still pretty heavy and continued. I saw a different OBGYN in Jan, and he started me on levonorgestrel-ethinyl estradiol which I've been taking since Jan 10. I took the pill on time every day.
Avatar m tn So I have been on the birth control pill YAZ for about 2 years now and I've got a few questions and concerns. I originally started the pill because I suffered from very intense, painful periods. It has worked for me and I don't mind taking it. Then I start to hear about all this recent controversy where women have had problems and sued over the pill. I will admit I am a smoker and I know it says you shouldn't smoke but I have not suffered from any major problems.
Avatar n tn Hey everyone, I'm on Yaz and have ibs D and have been experiencing tons of pain lately, along w/bloating, and even w/taking fiber its not helping. Ever since I stopped taking the birth control I feel a lot better, what other birth control methods can we try that won't make us sick? Besides the injection or nuvaband? Also does anyone in here experience pain during insertion of the penis?
Avatar n tn Before I went on the pill I had week and a half long heavy periods and harsh cramping. Yaz made all of those symptoms decrease substantially. Out of all of them Yaz was and is the best for me, it is a little stronger than others because they use Drospirenone which acts more like your bodies natural hormones than synthetic hormones do. So I highly recommend it.
Avatar f tn Sept 6,2011 Well I found out the other week that I am UNDETECTABLE after week 4. This was great news. My HGB is 11.2 and my WBC and RBC are in the edge of being critical too. My chest is heavy and I am SOB. Most likely from being O2 hungry. I have been so sleepy and just napping when I can. There are days that I have forced myself to get up and work my 12 hour shift at the hospital, with a "happy face" on.
681562 tn?1226597451 Are there any other people who have had mood swings, depression, spotting or anything else since starting to take Yasmin Birth Control Pill (YAZ) ? I have heard of some pretty bad stuff. Feel free to leave comments or share your story in the forum. I'll try to find some more information to put here soon. Here is the site address: http://yasmin-side-effects.ning.
Avatar n tn you can get pregnant on the pill if your on a low dose, i.e. your only on it for irregular periods.
Avatar f tn The pimples seem to be the cystic kind - hard, painful, coming from somewhere deep below the skin layers, fairly big, and at their full development they are full of white fluid. They don't heal or disappear on their own, and if they burst, a new one forms right on the same spot eventually, or within centimeters of it. They almost always leave a scar. Exercising less seems to make these pimples less severe, but I cannot fall back into sedentariness.
Avatar n tn 5 years old due to irregular and heavy periods. I came off 3 times to fall pregnant, which I did the month straight after eg off pill period then fell. Each time the mini pill wasn't strong enough to control the bleeding. A year a ago I was on a pill and I thought that my anxiety and weight was an issue so I changed to the Yaz combined pill. My anxiety and weight haven't changed.
Avatar n tn I started Yaz at the beginning of May - on May 4th. During the first four days, I was taking antibiotics. Usually my bf and I are really careful, but on the 10th day of taking the pill(May 14th), we had unprotected sex for about 10 seconds and then stopped because we got scared that I could get pregnant. I took a pregnancy test on May 30, and it came out negative.
963403 tn?1247180473 I've been on Yaz for almost three months everything was ok until friday i started spotting brownish and got worrien because i still needed 3 active pills for my placebo pills. and now its been almost 7 days and am still bleeding very light is this normal?? am worried.??
Avatar n tn Hey! I have been on YAZ birth control for quite some time and a month ago I was on antibiotics. I have never, NEVER had irregular periods....I did have a regular period following the antibiotics, however, I have now started bleeding (not heavy) again....two weeks before my regular period...I had a home pregnancy test here and took it midday yesterday and it was negative...I would not even be concerned if it weren't for those antibiotics!!!!
