Yaz or Yasmine.
i took yaz, and had odd random bleeding, then took the yasmine which did not cause that, whatever the difference may have been. (?)
however, at this point in my life, i really regret ever having taken hormonal bc. i feel as though the fibroids i have are the result of years of hormonal birth control. not a good thing.
SO you had issues with deperession while being on other BC before?
The doctor was insistent that I should be fine on it, I had asked for other birth control suggestions (I'm currently using the FAM method) because of the hormones. She insisted that Yaz was low hormone and I would be fine.. It was less than a month later and I was turning into a mess again, rather than "wait" it out I went right off of it.
I LOVE IT. I have not gained any weight, no depression or mood swings (That werent already there, ) and my skin looks BEAUTIFUL! The periods so far are very light and short, and did I mention my skin is beautiful? I know thats an awful reason to be happy, but if you know me, you know I was having some pretty awful skin issues a while back. Now I brealy have to wear makeup, except for the giant (hereditary) circles under my eyes.
ETA, they have a coupon deal online that makes the monthly cost only 20, as opposed to 70!!!!
The first 2 years that I took it, I had no problems at all. I switched from a pill that elevated the hormones gradually throughout the pack (which I hated). It was better for me because the release was steady. It is just now, in this past year (the 3rd year of taking it) giving me tough mood swings and making me feel unhappy. I am going to switch because of that. The blood clot thing is also not the best haha, you should talk to your doctor about that though!
