Going off Yaz - symptoms?

A couple of weeks ago I decided to go off the pill (Yaz) because I was wondering if it was making me feel sick (I've been taking the pill for over a year now). I was just wondering a) if anybody else has felt sick on Yaz; b) if going off it helped; and c) how long it took for the pill to get out of your system? Thanks for any help. (I'm 18).

Some women can experience a lot of side effects from contraceptive including Yaz. They include, but not limited to, Nausea, vomiting, cramping, bloating, weight and appetite changes, headaches, skin changes and depression. Each woman is different, but if yaz was the cause of your symptoms, you may start to feel relief within the first few weeks of discontinuing it. It can take a few months for it to filter out of your system; each woman varies on this. You'll know soon if going off it helps your symptoms. You should also talk to your doctor about your concerns.
