I was on Yaz for years and switched to Yasmine about a year ago.  I haven’t had big problems with mood swings or depression on either of them, and I’ve been on various pills for so long I have no idea if it’s zapped my sex drive (isn’t that sad?).  I liked Yaz, but after a couple of years I had a lot of break through bleeding, and when I mentioned that to my doc, she suggested I step up the dose.

When I go back, I think I’m going to switch again–my PMS has been way worse on Yasmine.  I would have gone back to switch earlier, but my doc was on maternity leave for so long that I couldn’t see her until right before our wedding, and decided to wait for my annual check up.

My doc put me on it the minute she found out about it. I trusted her. What I noticed was the weight gain and irritability. I went off it 4 mo. later. I now see all those  commercials when they spend more time giving disclaimers SCARY.
