I have taken Othro Tricylcen Lo, and Ortho Tri Cyclen…and I”m about to take Yaz.

With Lo- I felt nauseous, and had headaches often. With Orthro Tricyclen I was fine. I never ever had a pimple in my life and now that I am off it— I have them.

Anyway- I am starting Yaz soon because I do have PMDD symptoms.

Do your research. Start out with the lowest dose of hormones possible, if you don’t feel well- Go up.

Start with OTC Lo, and go to OTC regular if you don’t feel well.

Try Yaz if you already HAVE moodswings. If you don’t…and you start taking it, I think (based on what others have said) you’ll experience them.

Anyway there it is. Also, if you have a Planned Parenthood in your area, and don’t have health insurance, they can assist you. They have programs in place for low income men and women (testing, pills, exams). http://www.ppa.org Easy peasy

Be safe and be healthy!

Best of Luck to you all ; )
