Frequently Asked Questions
What is Yaz and how does it work?
Yaz is a combination birth control pill that is primarily used to prevent pregnancy. It does so by preventing the sperm from reaching the egg and preventing fertilized eggs from attaching to the uterus.
This medication is also used to regulate periods, treat acne, and prevent ovarian cysts. Yaz will not prevent STIs/STDs from transmitting.
How do you use Yaz?
Yaz should be taken by mouth once daily with or without food as directed by a doctor. The 28-day pack comes with 24 active medicated pills and 4 reminder pills (without medication). Take the active pills first, for 24 days in a row at the same time everyday. After taking the last active pill, take a reminder pill once daily for 4 days in a row. After taking the last inactive tablet in the pack, start a new pack the next day whether or not you have your period. If you did not get your period, consult a doctor. If this is the first time using this medication, use an additional form of non-hormonal birth control for the first 7 days to prevent pregnancy.
What are the side effects and risks of Yaz?
Some common side effects when using Yaz include:
- Nausea, vomiting
- Breast tenderness, weight gain
- Headache, mood changes, feeling tired or irritable
- Changes in menstrual periods
- Decreased sex drive
- Increased risk of blood clots
- Increased risk of some hormone dependent tumours
Some users may also experience signs of a stroke (sudden numbness or weakness, slurred speech, vision problems), blood clots, heart attack symptoms (chest pain or pressure), liver problems (dark urine, jaundice), increased blood pressure, swelling in the extremities, and symptoms of depression (sleep problems, weakness, tired feeling, mood changes). If any of these severe symptoms occur, consult a doctor immediately.
Stopping Yaz birth control?
You can stop taking Yaz at any time but consult a doctor beforehand. When stopping this medication, you will not be protected from pregnancy; spotting or irregular periods may occur.
Who should not take Yaz?
Yaz should not be taken when pregnant or if the individual smokes and is over 35. Yaz should also not be taken if there is a history of an adrenal gland disorder, kidney disease, uncontrolled high blood pressure, heart disease, circulation problems (especially with diabetes), unexplained vaginal bleeding, or liver disease.
