Yaz reviews birth control

Common Questions and Answers about Yaz reviews birth control


1965859 tn?1325562037 I'm 16 and supposed to be on birth control to regulate my hormones. They are crazy out of control due to the fact that I have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). I am on Metformin and also an antidepressant as well. I was originally taking the generic form of Yaz and was generally happy with it, but I have trouble keeping up with all these medications. I am scheduling an appointment with my gyno and looking into the Ortho Evra patch.
Avatar m tn I think I'm some where between 8-10 weeks(find out for sure tomorrow). I was taking the lo lestrogen pill for birth control, had a feeling something wasn't right....intense cramping, weird spotting, sore breasts,an obvious change in the way I was dreaming, etc. A friend suggested I take a pregnancy test and much to my surprise, it came out positive! To get to the real question, which birth control should I switch to after my baby is born? Obviously the pill isn't for me.
Avatar m tn I have come across this site in hopes to find someone who could possibly be in my situation with birth control. After 4 months of being on yaz I have decided to stop because of the terrible side effects that I was experiencing. My goal is to get my body working naturally again on its own and find hormonal balance naturally rather than with drugs and synthetic hormones that are just simply not good for us.
681588 tn?1275086789 We'll see how I make out. Regarding Yaz, so far it's awesome! Of course - as is common with birth control pills - I'm experiencing pregnancy-like symptoms but they're not nearly as bad as the reviews I've read online prior to taking my first pill. My skin has never been so smooth and I may have even gone up half a cup size! That's exciting for a woman! LOL.
Avatar f tn I lost 20 lbs on birth control pills and was nervous and sick on a daily basis. I went off birth control 5 years ago and have been fine since then. Good riddens to birth control pills.....I now have an IUD and have gained my weight back. I had no clue what was wrong with me at the time, but looking back I had a HUGE problem. Good luck to all of you. My advice is get out while you still can. I caused alot of bodily harm while on birth control.
Avatar n tn Am I supposed to stick it out and keep feeling yucky or should switch back to my birth control that I had basically no problems with except minor breakthrough bleeding? I start my first real job next week and I had to buy all new work clothes b/c I didn't fit into ones I had already! Any opinions??
Avatar n tn I was told that Yaz is a new birth control pill. I am used to 7 days of placebo pills rather than only 4. Is Yaz's concentration any different from the common birth control pills? Is it like saying just taking longer birth control pills? What are the side effects? What are the benefits? Has FDA approved? Where i can search more about Yaz? Will it affect my future plan of having a healthy pregnancy?
Avatar n tn I was on Yasmin for 4 years. Just went off to try to have another baby. Sex drive has "sky rocketed"! Decrease in sex drive is a side-effect of many birth control pills. I think that is why they work so well. Hard to get pregnant when you dont fell like having sex;) Good luck to you!
Avatar m tn If you are looking for help with your endometriosis symptoms, I am not aware of an alternative. For birth control, you might want to consider a diaphragm and/or regular use of condoms.
Avatar n tn Hello, I have been trying a few birth control pills over the past year, and I have found certain difficulties with each one. I am trying my best to find my "dream pill" for me, one with either none of my most hated side effects, or very moderate side effects. Here is a little history of each one I've tried already: First, Ortho-Novum 7/7/7-- Started about half a year ago. Started taking it, had bad vomiting and nausea, but nonetheless was my first time with birth controll pills.
142384 tn?1275504937 At 16 she decided I was old enough to use tampons, and that helped with the rash, but I was still having awful cramps and heavy periods. At 17 the doctor put me on birth control. Just regular old Ortho Tri-Cyclin, and the heavy bleeding went away, but the cramps were still there. I got pregnant at 21 and went back on birth control after my son was born, got pregnant again at 25 and ended up getting an IUD after my daughter was born.
Avatar n tn I started feeling this way after discovering I have PCOS, getting on Metformin, getting off Metformin, getting on birth control (Yaz), not seeing a difference and having increased pains, until eventually having to get on Zoloft. I first tried herbal remedies. I went to Whole Foods (Natural food store) and bought a bottle of Serenity. It seems to help some with sleeping and anxiety. You can find it online or read about it at: www.gaiaherbs.

I got pregnant at 21 and went back on birth control after my son was born, got pregnant again at 25 and ended up getting an IUD after my daughter was born. With the IUD, I was right back to heavy periods and cramps worse than before, but I did not want any more children, and due to family beliefs, (please don't ask.

Avatar f tn Of course, the company's website warns that mood swings are a possible side effect (I think that is a side effect for any form of hormonal birth control). What I would like to know is whether the nuva ring is more likely to cause negative emotional side effects than the pill is. I have heard mixed reviews, some people emotionally crash on it and others notice nothing; is this just something I am going to have to buckle down and test for a month?
Avatar n tn I am 31 was on some for of the birth control pill (BCP) from age 17 to 29. At 29 I went on YAZ for about a year. Had leg cramping and diziness so doctor took me off BCP entirely. Of course, my periods got heavier and heavier while I was off the bill. Started Trinessa (generic for Ortho) in February. In May, I started to notice chills coupled with feverishness and hypersensitivity of the skin (even my clothes hurt when they brushed my skin a certain way) the day my period stated.
Avatar n tn As long as I pass out clots as soon as I get them, I don't have to change my pad for atleast 6-7 hours. I went to the doctor a couple of months ago and he gave me birth control pills (yaz) to thin the uterus lining. But the pills caused weight gain. So, I stopped them last month and I'm back to passing heavy clots. It is a very difficult as I can't go anywhere out and have to be near a bathroom all the time. Is there any way to reduce the clots without taking birth control pills?
Avatar n tn Yes I am lubricated when ever I have sex. I am not on the pill or any type of birth control.
363243 tn?1331037450 I'm scheduling an appointment with mine to see if there are any available creams to lighten the dark spots and also to get another prescription of Vaniqua. Birth control pills with spironolactone can decrease hair growth, but I don't do well with synthetic hormones, so that option is out. My endocronologist told me that nothing he can give me will completely take the hair away. He talked about several options. Birth control and spironolactone, metformin, vaniqua and exercise.
298579 tn?1192250448 com/health/ovarian-cysts/DS00129/DSECTION=symptoms There are others posts on reputable sites which indicate that some forms of birth control might cause pain, some bacterial infections may also cause pain. But, at least I am now armed with information to take to my gynie and demand he either look to see if either of these are the cause, or I'll find one who will. Good luck to all and here's to pain free sex again.
Avatar n tn her first pg wasnt too bad with pain. after the birth of her dd she again had horrible pain. she became pg with ds and it was very painful due to the scar tissue. after she had her son (now 11 months) she is on the pill. she skips her sugar pills and goes right into the next pac to prevent her period. she has had nothing more than some mild discomfort and is not having to take pain meds anymore.
Avatar n tn How about finally having it and it being painful ? That wasnt good for me. Would you go on a birth control if you KNEW they were known side effects ?? I think not. BTW-I had no problem with irregular menstral bleeding, that I was expecting. I had some but it wasn't terrible. Its everything else that was the issue. As for "Far more women are harmed, or even die, as a result of pregnancy ..... " Not in this day and age.
Avatar n tn You're period would usually start within a few days. So until we can get to the Doc we have been using back up methods of birth control. I have had three months of normal periods, and yesterday I had brown spotting for a few hours. My first thought was that it was old blood, yuck. Well when I did the math, I think it may be implantation bleeding. I had that last pregnancy. Has anyone else had an experience similar to this?
Avatar m tn Ever since then its been an ongoing struggle. I feel as if i have no control of my life, and im constantly thinking of my breathing. I feel hopeless and feel as if no one understands what im going through or that i have this disease that doctors cant detect. My doctor has put me on xanax for anxiety and it seemed to cut the edge off a lil but its still there. Its not as bad as when i first got it but it still disrupts my life.
Avatar n tn --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Metformin will not help to regulate your periods it is for a totally different cause,most people with PCOS also are pre-diabetic which is the cause of the PCOS in the first place. Birth control is usually what you are put on too, to try and get your periods going right.
Avatar n tn I do feel in control of my depression but I seem to have no control over my weight. I am hopeful that after I am off the drug 100% that my body will return to some kind of normal - fingers crossed! Please everyone keep posting - I want to know how things are going for you too. Thanks.
Avatar n tn Hi, I'm a 22-year-old female so this may help women...2 months ago I started using Nuvaring (and IUD for of birth control), during that time I've had two UTIs and pain on my right side (under my ribs and lower back) and just recently found out that it's most likely due to my birth control. I go to my family doctor tomorrow (I'm overly paranoid when I don't feel well) but I took the ring out 2 days ago, and already feel somewhat better.
280700 tn?1210287416 ok question. my husband and i have been off all forms of birth control for 2 years now and I have PCOS so i have never had a regular period. if i am lucky i have it without medication once a year. we are about to start our first round of clomid with metformin and i was wondering if there was anyone out there in a similar position or has been before? i am just wondering what my chances look like. i have never been pregnant before, this is will be our first time.
