@[Mod] Uniquey just a suggestion, but maybe speak to a naturopath as they are brilliant at treating hormonal imbalances

I went on Yaz a few months ago for a case of adult acne. I had the same concerns about the risks but decided on real terms I was prepared to take them. It made me utterly mental. I was falling asleep at 4 every day, I was crabby, tired, forgetful, moody..... it was awful. Even my DH commented and he's usually one for keeping his mouth shut. I stopped it after a month and was back to normal within a week. I did also get a period while on it that lasted for 15 days. Awesome.
Not for me.
I was on Levlen for over 10 years before I had kids with zero problems.
Incidentally, my skin cleared up of its own accord.

I started taking yaz a few months back, it did amazing things for my awful skin. I think it must have balanced out my hormones a bit too as I no longer hit a depressive state at 'that time of the month'. The massive problem I had is AF was non stop for over a month, stopped for a few days, then back to bleeding every day. I completely gave up on it in the end, the downsides completely outweighed all the upsides.

Thanks for your input everyone, it seems it's a hit for some and a miss for others, it's the heightened risk of clots/thrombosis and then migraines that still has me concerned.

I was on Yasmin for seven years and never had any issues. I'd love to go back on it as my skin was so good on it (it was the reason I started taking it, plus my skin has been horrible since I stopped) but we are ttc so obviously I can't! If I were to go back on oral contraceptives I wouldn't have any issue going back on Yasmin.

My specialist said that all contraceptive pills have risks especially if you are: over 35, overweight or smoke. I was 2 out of 3 of those (overweight and smoking at the time) and not far off the other one. He said with those risk factors I really shouldn't be taking any contraceptive pill and especially not this one.
So... if you are overweight or smoke, or any of those and over 35, seek some specialist advice about this pill. Scary stuff.

When I had a TIA due to a blood clotting disorder and being pregnant my BMI was below 20 at the time and I was fit and healthy and 31 years old. A rise in oestrogen even when within a healthy weight range can cause problems.
