Not bad but increased anxiety being on the pill, acne was better and cramps and more regular periods you’d know when they are coming which was good but being on it for awhile increased my anxiety.

This has been my favorite pill of all I’ve been on in my 20+ years of using birth control. I have clearer skin, controlled weight, minimal period cramps, 4-5 day flow (less than my prior flow time), better moods, positive sex drive, less anxiety than when on other forms of birth control, and overall a positive experience.

I’ve had virtually no side effects since starting this birth control. I would highly recommend it to others!

Yaz birth control pill reviews

Five stars because it saved my life. I have zest for life and do not intend to kill myself, but my PMDD turned me into a threat to my own safety for two out of every 3.5 weeks. I was so miserable that I wanted to be euthanized. Yaz makes me feel normal again, treat people normally again. The downside is some bloating, breast tenderness, and what little libido I had is gone. Additionally, since starting the pill I am prone to uncontrollable and unprofessional bouts of weeping when I do not feel like I need to cry. This is highly frustrating but better than living with PMDD. Generic version does not control my PMDD symptoms, brand name for me only.

Yaz hit me like a freight train. Only lasted a month. Anxiety, panic, isomnia, dizzy spells and nausea and loss of appetite, and oh my god I peed like every 30 minutes, and felt my bladder was filling back up as it was emptying. A lot of pelvic pressure. I was tested for UTIs and got to a point where I made ultrasound and urologist appointments for my bladder, I had no idea what was going on. I did end up finding out I have a small bladder, so the diuretic effect of Yaz just hit me very hard. Do not recommend. The anxiety and insomnia hit hard and two weeks after stopping everything is normal, but those anxious thoughts at night needed ongoing cognitive behavioural therapy to get through.

I think Yaz has gotten a bad rap in the past, but for me it was totally fine. It was a great choice for me at the time and I experienced no major side effects. I would recommend this to others.

Ive been using birth control for so long that im not sure whats what. I am now worried about longer term effects of the pill and the fact that my natural cycle has been disrupted. Knowing what i know now i think i would have stopped taking hormonal birthcontrol a long time ago.
