So last year I was on yaz and after about 3 months, I started having cramps and gas and always felt like my stomach wasnt settled. My mom thought I was lactose intolerant but when I stopped my pills over summer, my stomach was back to normal. Now I am on yaz again and after 2 months the same thing is happening with my stomach. Has anyone else experienced this with yaz? Should I be worried. I think I am going to ask my doctor to switch.

Hello, Marz! How are you? Has there been any change?

Those can be side effects of oral contraceptives, according to the NIH. You may also experience headache, PMS-like symptoms, and spotting.

Speaking to your doctor about switching to a different one is most likely a good idea. With many medications, it is a matter of trial and error to find one that works for you, without causing miserable side effects.

I've just started taking Yaz last Wednesday (6 days ago). I was never on birth control prior to this. I want to skip my next period which is due on the 29th of November. If I keep taking the pills will I avoid my period or would I need to be on the pill longer for it to work properly?

I took tomorrow's Yaz pill instead of today’s pill, but they were both pink. Do all the pink pills have the same hormones in them? I noticed some pills have “DS” engraved on them and others don’t.

I've just started Yaz (I'm on day 8 of my first pack) and I've started to get really bad cramps, similar to period cramps and I've had light spotting in the past day. However, my period ended 4 days ago...

Has anyone else had similar experiences when starting Yaz?
