I've been happy with the birth control pill (BCP) that I'm currently on (have been taking for 15+ years), and recently saw an advertisement for Yaz. Is anyone taking Yaz, and/or do know more information about it? (I've looked at the Yaz website, and they claim that this pill helps with premenstrual symptoms and other emotional stuff that would help me!).
I remember one of my respected doctors from years ago saying that a BCP being advertised as "the only" pill that helps with acne (Loestrin, I think?) and she said that was just advertising; most combination pills (at that time) had the same two hormones, so they all help with acne in similar ways (she acknowledged that although BCP had similar hormones, different women reacted differently to the various types of BCP...). So, I'm wondering if Yaz is just being advertised as being "the only" pill helping with premenstrual emotional problems, when most combo pills do the same thing?
Anyways...just wondering about your experience with Yaz. I love my current BCP because I don't have cramps or any physical side effects....just the negative emotional effects that would be nice to have diminished.
