I was on it for about 6 months last year.  I had a really bad time on it unfortunately.  I was CRAZY, I’m shocked Fiance put up with it.  I would cry at the drop of a hat, (I’m not an emotional person by any means) and I would get super pissed off for the dumbest things.  The mood swings didn’t last too long but they were bad when they happened.  I switched to Ortho-Tri-Cyclen Lo after that, because the doc said there was too much estrogen in the Yaz.  I just started Lo Estrin 24fe, because I still had pretty bad cramps on the OTC-Lo.  I hope my sex drive doesn’t go away!

I am, and I have been for years (well, it used to be Yasmin…) and I haven’t had any nasty side effects. I hope all goes well for you!

I was, for about a year, and I went off of it.  I had ZERO sex drive on it, and it made me kinda blah.  Not crazy, but seriously, I had no personality lol,  I hated it.  Im off BC altogether now

I’ve been on Yaz for over a year now–no problems really. Before I was on ortho-tricyclen lo and still had pretty bad periods, but with Yaz sometimes they only last a day or two and are so light!  My skin has also benefited from Yaz.  Everyone’s body is different, but you can always start and if you don’t like it, switch to something else. Good luck!

I was on Yaz for about seven months. Things were swell until I started to bleed…and didn’t stop! I had a period for about a month before I was switched to another pill.

I was on it for more than a year before the breakthrough bleeding starting happening allll the time.  So my doc switched me to ortho ti cyclen.  She told me she was "so over Yaz" too.  I really liked it before that.  Very short periods and no cramps.  Good luck at the doctors!

I’ve been on it since the end of ’07 and have no complaints with it.  It is the first one that  didn’t cause me problems; I was on one that I loved but the headaches were terrible so I had to get off of it.

I am on Yasmin and I quite like it.  I rarely have problems with monophasic pills (but I HATE triphasics), none have made me moody or totally disinterested in sex or whatever.  The thing I like most about Yasmin, and why I chose it, is the drospirenone.  It’s a diuretic and it really helps combat bloating and water retention, which was a problem for me even though I have very little processed food (salt) in my diet.

@monalisa, I know, I was an Alesse fan as well!!!

If the only prob with the LoEstrin24 is the low sex drive, I would stick with it till after the wedding/honeymoon…you already have enough on your mind right now that you dont need to worry about possible worse side effects than low sex drive. After all, I’m sure your sex drive will be just fine your wedding night (as you will feel beautiful!!) and your honey moon…just a thought…Once all the wedding hooplah is done, then switch to try it out. If you switch now, you are already under some stress I’m sure that it could make the side effects (if any) worse!

I had to switch to Yaz, because on Orthocyclen, I was a raging b**** for months.

My sex drive still hasn’t come back after about 6 months on this, but it may just be my stress levels. I actually got on Yaz to combat moodiness, depression, and anxiety, and it has been a miracle pill. I feel much more like myself now. I also love the shorter period, and the cramps are nowhere near as bad as they were.

But I still have hormone-related migraines every month…but I had those before, so I wouldn’t blame it on Yaz.

Everyone’s body is different, though, so I definately would stick with your current pill until after the wedding.
