I am nineteen and I am taking YAZ; however, I am seeing my doctor to stop taking this pill because I have recently become aware that it is associated with a greater risk of fatal blood clots, strokes and heart attacks - even in girls as young as sixteen. I know everybody reacts differently to the pill but, in my opinion the number of global deaths in women who have taken this pill is just too great to justify.
I have been taking YAZ for just over a year and I went on it to help with my skin. My skin wasn't terrible, it was very mild pimples but because they were so persistent, I saw my doctor and she suggested the pill YAZ. I wish I had known it's risks sooner. As a result of taking this pill, I have been feeling symptoms associated with potential blood clots such as cramping in my legs, weak legs, tender calf muscles, painfully restless legs and a subtle sharp throb in my chest. I never paid much attention to them as they were occasional and always subsided after an hour or two. But after experiencing more often as of late I researched what their cause may be and in no time at all I found that they are very likely to be occurring as a result of taking the pill YAZ and that I must seek medical advice as soon as possible as a result. As I've said, I am seeking my new doctor this week to stop this pill because I am afraid of taking it. I value my health and I do not want to be taking something that has been associated with so much negativity and whose risks outweigh its benefits. I believe every woman should know about the greater risks of YAZ because the company have been very secretive in terms of supplying clear labels indicating its association with such risks. I feel sorry for all the women who have died without knowing it's risks and their family.
