I know what your doctor said to stick it out until next month.... but really if you feel that sick....stop taking the medicine now, and demand a different brand. We all know that bc is suppose to help with painful periods and pms but if you feel worse while taking it, it means your body is not agreeing with the medicine. I take Yasmin, and I never had any problems with it. But my doctor told me if I felt worse, or periods were still heavy to let him know because he would have to give me a different brand. Yasmin is great, it also prevents me from getting pimples too. My periods are actually alot lighter (been on Yasmin for a year) and I dont have bad PMS anymore.
I am on Yaz, and have been for 4 months. I think it is the best birth control ever! My periods are 1 day a month. You know your own body, but personally i would wait a little longer...My PMS has decreased, lighter periods. The only down fall is that it has made me break out with acne, even though it is said that Yaz clears the skin. Its kind of a positive and negitive.
Watch out for Yaz. I'm 42 but a fitness nut, a non-smoker who's thin and active with no family history of any kind of clotting problems. I was on Yaz for six months before developing bilateral pulmonary emboli. I was in ICU for 3 days, the hospital for 2 more and am on blood thinners until October. My hematologist hasn't found a thing that predisposes me to clotting. Look around the internet. It seems like there is an unusually high number of life-threatening Yaz problems. You might want to think twice about this drug. I wish I had.
how long were you on Yaz before that happened?
i was wondering what dosage you were on?
