Yaz and getting pregnant

Common Questions and Answers about Yaz and getting pregnant


Avatar n tn im currently taking yaz birth control. lately iv been getting real sick and hungry like crazy could it be my pill or something else. im trying to get pregnant but trying to regulate my periods too.
Avatar f tn i'm on Yaz and i went to Hawaii june 2nd through june 10th and i was supposed to be on my period during that week but i double up on my birth control so i wouldnt have a period during vacation but before that i was sexually active with out protection and i had not taken my birth control at the same time those days. but i guess i was just wondering could you get pregnant during that time? are you fertile if you do that?
Avatar f tn Could I be pregnant, even though my husband and I tired for years to no avail and decided we were just getting too old to have children. Help! Thank you!
Avatar f tn I started taking Yaz after finishing my other contraceptive POP (Progestin only pill). The day I started Yaz was on December 25 and two weeks later on January 4 I had my period and lasted 7 days.
2059540 tn?1331066896 hey there i was on Yaz almsot 2 years ago and was only one for 3 months my period was the full 2 months and did not stop and horrible cramps. and now i am engaged and ttc and have been trying for over a year with no such luck could yaz have anything to do with this? or what else may be thee problem?
Avatar f tn Some of these pills work for some and some don't work for others. I have used Yaz and like it the best and my friend used it and it made her sick. It's too bad they didn't have a way to plug in your information and out pops an answer of what pill you should use.
Avatar n tn Then just a few days ago i get my period, which typically is very heavy, painfull and lasts 7 days, however by mid-day of the 1st day it slowed, 2nd day was light to none, and some spotting on the 3rd. I am wondering if i still could be pregnant? Has anyone experienced this or have any advice?
Avatar f tn Hi cassiee014, First and foremost got off Yaz. The birth control Yaz is dangerous. There are actually some women who have lawsuits against the manufacturers of Yaz. Getting off Yaz may solve your depression. Actually I just read you have a mild history of depression. You also said you haven't taken any medication for your depression. Okay. I would make an appointment with your family doctor . Is your doctor aware of your mild history of depression?
Avatar n tn Sorry but you're all crackin me up! I think I am suffering from ALL of the same symptoms......weight gain (10 lbs so far....husband says I'm getting fat! Almost made me cry), boobs jumping 2 CUP SIZES (husband doesn't mind but damn they HURT, not to mention I have to buy new bras!), irritability, very sluggish, tired, then can't sleep when I need/want to, hungry, angry.....yeah, I know it's the YAZ. The doc says, "It's the perfect pill...
Avatar f tn Interestingly enough, my best friend started getting the same symptoms as me after taking Yaz and she hadn't even been on birth control before, so I had the feeling we probably weren't alone. I don't know why I switched, but I am definitely going back to Yasmin because Yaz is just evil!! [/quote] I was in Yasmin for 2 years. I still had modd issues, so thought I would quit..bad idea. After 6 months, I was begging for Yasmin. SO they gave me Ocella, the generic of Yasmine....
1519601 tn?1298479550 c and in and out of the hospital alot back in '07...i stopped taken it in 2008 when i turned up pregnant by my ex then had a misscarriage... but i was also on zoloft and some other med for my stomach issues along with yasminand i gained ALOOTT of weight... not sure which pill to blame... Well i have been off B.C since 2008 and i lost all my weight since i stopped taken all perscribed pills and had the miscarriage. I am scared to go BACK on B.C cause im affraid i will gain all my weight back.
Avatar f tn if she's on birth control and taking it correctly, then chances of getting pregnant are slimmer anyway, so there really shouldn't be much of a need to take the morning after pill. But for peace of mind, you can still take it but it's pretty bad for her body - will mess up her cycles etc.
Avatar n tn I have been pregnant before and I really feel like I am pregnant. It may be too early to tell if I am pregnant, but I am so concerned with the lawsuit against YAZ. Can anybody help me?
Avatar f tn Ive gotten some brown stringy discharge and clotting, but no bright red blood and its definately not a period. Does it sound like I could possibly be pregnant, or is it my body getting used to being off the shot and now on another method of contraception? Please help!
Avatar f tn I stopped taking Yaz last month and it's been a little confusing. So far my symptoms have been pretty heroic mood swings, acne, my hair is nappy (which usually happens to me around period time), bad bad indigestion, heart burn, odd dreams, breast sensitivity. Basically, I feel like I've been on my period for several weeks. I know what you're thinking and I've already gone through three home pregnancy tests, all negative.
Avatar n tn it has been almost three months since my shot and i can feel lil twiching in my tummy and getting itchy stretch marks and sore breast what is goin on with me can i be pregnant and have a neg result mor then once if so wats gonna happen to my baby due to the shot my doctor said i didnt need the blood test when i first told him how can i know whats really goin on.
Avatar n tn I know before I was trying to get pregnant, I was on the pill and my period wouldn't start until day 3 of the placebo pills and I would still have my period for two days after starting the next month's pack. It's normal and I wouldn't worry about it.
Avatar m tn Also my boyfriend and I recently had sex without a condom and I was wondering if I would be at risk of getting pregnant because I swapped pills a week ago? Or would have it just kept protecting me instead of yaz?
Avatar n tn My sister and I both were told that we had a tilted uterus and both of us had normal periods and pregnancys. Im not sure if this helps you or not. Its a good ideal to get it checked out. Good Luck.
Avatar f tn I have been taking Yaz since August and have had the same symptoms...I even thought for 2 or 3 months that I might have been pregnant and took tests!! I continued to stay on the medication but I am still suffering from the same symptoms. Tired all of the time, weight gain, headaches, breast tenderness..etc. My last pill for this month is tomorrow and I think I am stopping it for good. I am getting remarried in May and was planning to stop 2 months before the wedding anyway.
Avatar f tn I used to take YAZ a long time ago. Got pregnant and had a miscarriage. If I were you I would stop taking YAZ. It's been all over TV on how bad it is for you. Look it up. YAZ is the worst birth control out there and has done a lot of damage. I switched to the NUVA RIng. No weight gain, no chemicals, stays in for one month. I take mine out during intercourse, but it's still affective for three hours.
Avatar f tn Which is FRUSTRATING for trying to figure ovulation. Prior to getting pregnant I was always normal...and I liked YAZ because it helped with mood swings, acne, and felt almost not myself when I missed a month of pills or started a new pack few weeks later. I have noticed weight gain..and I am sooo glad to see this effects of coming off the pill aren't just happening to me. I am going to try again this month...estimating at a 28-40 day cycle.
Avatar n tn Her next period was 2 or 3 days late now she is 3 days late again with no pms symptoms and she thinks she is pregnant . Is it possible this could just be caused by the birth control ? This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/323984'>period every two weeks after stopping yaz</a>.
Avatar n tn I spot for a day the week before I am due to get mine and then it comes for a day and then goes away and comes back.... and I am on the pill too. I hate that. Good luck and take a test and let us know. luv ya girl!! How's the kids BTW?
Avatar n tn I've been on the Pill for well over a year now, and have recently switched from Yaz to Seasonique. This past weekend, my boyfriend and I had unprotected sex, and I'm worried that I've become pregnant. I missed one pill in the new pack back in early September, and took it immediately when I remembered. I decided to go ahead and take the placebo pills at the end of my pack to cause my period to come on. Is it still possible that I may become pregnant?
Avatar m tn Recently,a week back I have started using homeopathic treament because of acne problem on my face due to metformin tablets,so I stopped using metformin and continued yaz for this month cycle as adviced by my phisician and started taking homeopathic medicine along with yaz.. ,yesterday on 21st pill,I had sexual Intercource with my parter for the first time. As I have studied that yaz is a birth control pill,does the usage of homeopathic medicine reduces the effectiveness of the pill?
Avatar n tn I have been taking Yaz for the past 6 months and at first I was getting normal periods but all of the sudden my period has dissapeared. I thought I might have possibly been pregnant but the test came out negative. I read that irregular menstral cycles is part of the many side effects involved with this medication. Am I the only one this is happening to or is this part of what Yaz does to a persons body?
Avatar f tn Has any one had any issues getting pregnant after being on Yaz.
Avatar f tn I also have had a past of severe migrains and some have been highly affected by yaz and nuva rings.. so i was thinking a copper IUD would be the answer. I dont agree with not having my period, I want to keep things as regular as possible. I do plan to have kids later in life.. and im not worried about the heavy periods or cramps. does anyone have and advice.. recommendations or concerns that I should know about before I go for it?
