Stopped taking Yaz - what were your symptoms?
I stopped taking Yaz last month and it's been a little confusing. So far my symptoms have been pretty heroic mood swings, acne, my hair is nappy (which usually happens to me around period time), bad bad indigestion, heart burn, odd dreams, breast sensitivity. Basically, I feel like I've been on my period for several weeks. I know what you're thinking and I've already gone through three home pregnancy tests, all negative. So I guess my question is, can coming off the pill produce symptoms similar to pregnancy? Did other people have any of these symptoms? How long can I expect them to stick around?

Thanks much.

Of course these symptoms will mimic pregnancy symptoms...thats the reason why so many think they are pregnant because the symptoms are so close to PMS. I was on Yasmin..(not the same, but its a birth control) for 2 years. I stopped taking in Aug 2009 and had symptoms of horrible breast sensitivity two weeks before my period and sometimes cramping. But symptoms vary, and also when I started the pill I didn't suffer any problems. So it might just be the way your body reacts to medications. Normally, they say give the pill 3 months to get into your system and it's about the same thing for getting it out of your system. Can I ask the reason you stopped your bc? You were on Yaz...any chance you suffered from PMDD? That would explain why your moods are really bad. Yaz is meant for those who suffer from PMDD. Just wondering.
