Unhappy YAZ Birthcontrol

so, i've been taking YAZ for about 2 weeks now. I started to notice the acne that finally went away after my pubescent years is starting to show again. I understand it has to get worse before it gets better, but i'm talking WAY worse. Also, my sex drive is off the walls and my fatigue is increasing as well. It's like I have no energy right when I wake up. I feel like i'm loosing weight, and then other days it's like I'm going to pop. I am nowhere near my period right now, so it has nothing to do with PMS symptoms. Please, help me. Oh, and if you have negative comments then dont bothering me you're making yourself look stupid and pointless. Thank you.

Re: YAZ Birthcontrol

I started Yaz a couple weeks ago, and I've had the same issues. I'm going to keep at it for a couple of months, and if the symptoms subside, I'll stay on it. Otherwise, I'll have to look into another kind of BC.

Re: YAZ Birthcontrol

this is my first time on yaz also. i haven't really noticed any extreme side effects... however i'm wondering when I'm going to start my period; today's my first day on the placebo pill and nothing yet.. oh also, i've noticed that i am breaking out more but I also heard it takes bout 3 months for the acne to start clearing up, we shall see how it am all works out but for now i am quite content with yaz...

Re: YAZ Birthcontrol

I have been taking Yaz for 4 months.

The first 2 months my breasts were extremely painful. They were huge and I felt bloated. Also, I have had acne for years, mostly on the neck/jawline. The first 2 months on Yaz I broke out in new and different spots, i.e. on my cheeks like I never had before.

Sometime during the 3rd pack/month, my breasts suddenly stopped hurting and my skin became amazing. I always heard the give-it-3-months rule, and for me, that was very true!

If you're truly miserable, speak to your doctor about switching now. But in my experience, I definitely think you should stick it out for 3 months before making any decisions.

Also, I don't start my period until the 2nd or 3rd day on the white/inactive pills. And my period usually continues 1-2 days into the pink/active pills of the new pack. This is normal.

Good luck!
