YAZ: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Birth Control “I switched to yaz after trying traditional pills that caused me to break out in acne because of the increase in male androgen hormones. Yaz helped my skin but gave me terrible migraines so I had to stop it.”

For Birth Control “I’ve been taking yaz for a few months now and each month my anxiety, depression and dependence on my bf has gotten worst. I thought I was just being a psycho until I read these reviews. Like I’d get so jealous and tell him off and I couldn’t figure out why because I’m usually not this person. I’m very easygoing and he’s trustworthy. Don’t do it. Find another birth control. I’m done taking this as of today.”

For Birth Control “I’ve been on Yaz for 6 years now and I cannot relate to most of the posts on here. I’ve had a great experience with it. My skin is clear, my hair growth reduced and I have not gotten pregnant – yay! Moodiness is here and there but I had that before the pill, we’re hormonal after all! Great birth control overall, I would recommend.”

For Acne “I have taken Yaz for almost a year now. I don’t know what’s a normal response to birth control pills as it was my first kind. I took it to clear up my acne and lessen my cramps. During my first 2-3 months, I did experience extreme jealousy and potentially mild depression from it. My acne was the same as before, about 2-3 pimples at a time. I had no weight gain from taking Yaz at all and did not become nauseous. I had a nurse friend tell me it takes time for the body to adjust to the pill so I kept with it until it was time to see the doctor again. By the 4th month, I had clear skin and cramps were indeed lessened. I don’t feel anymore depression and major jealousy (just the normal amount of jealousy). Still no weight gain either. I think I’ve only had one pimple since then. Yaz isn’t for everyone and it could take a few months for the results to show. But be sure to do your research and tell your doctor if things don’t seem normal.”

For Acne “I’m 19 and never suffered from bad acne even in my early teenage years. When I became sexually active I went on Levlen and that was fine for about 3 years then I started to get some of the worst cystic acne on my chin (hormonal) so I knew it was Levlen. I went to my doctor and got Yaz, I was terrified of some of the side effects people we’re talking about but I was pleasantly surprised, I’ve been on it 2 weeks and so far it’s cleared my skin COMPLETELY already (left with scars and redness, a few little pimples but no cystic huge ones) my mood has never been this stable and I’ve never been this happy, my skin feels softer too. All medications have side effects, this one is worth the risk for the benefits I feel like a new woman. It’s not covered by the PBS (medicare) in Australia so its $70 for 3 months supply but thats a small price to pay for my self confidence back. A miracle drug.”

For Birth Control “PLEASE DO NOT TAKE YAZ! After 4/5 days I had a huge emotional break down. I hadn’t cried that hard in months. It was not something to get so worked up about. 2 days later I had one of the worse panic attacks I’ve ever experienced. It was absolutely terrorizing. Why the hell is this drug even available? Those are the just the extreme side effects. Please don’t risk your life! I’m also worried I could have a blood clot due to medicine.”
