PMS (Premenstrual Syndrome) Join this Group

Yaz, Yasmin, Birth Control, PMS & PMDD

I am curious how many women here are aware of the problems related to birth control formulas containing drospirenone (Yaz, Yasmin, Ocella, Beyaz, etc.)
I put up this blog post a few weeks ago
and apparently the manufacturer is facing a lot of lawsuits for alleged damages.
Of course, plenty of women probably get relief from Yaz, but I wonder if your doctor told you about the possible side effects, or if you stopped it for some other reason, or if you're still taking it. I'd like to know others' experience with this.
