Has anyone tried Yaz?

Hi, I am thinking about trying the new birth control pill Yaz and wondered if anyone else has tried it. What was it like did you have any side effects? I tried Mirena and gained a lot of weight and have had the paraguard before with a lot of bleeding and cramping. Any feedback would be very helpful. thanks

I as well am using Mirena and it has caused quite a bit of weight gain- but not any side affects other than that. And its better for risks of breast cancer because of its progesterone base. Yaz is estrogen based which increases your risks against breast cancer but of my friends that use it they all RAVE about it.

i took yaz and it actually helped me alot. although i didnt take it for prevention of pregnancy, i was having very painful menstral cycles and yaz straightened me out. after taking it, i didnt have any problems. and no pregnancies either lol. I see in prev. posts others didnt handle yaz so well. Things affect people dif so my suggestion would be to alk to your doctor and ind out which pill would be best for you.
