NO SEX DRIVE!
That is my number one complaint about this drug! I am 24 years old, I've been on maybe 2-3 different birth control pills since I was 17years old. I am not new to this and have always had a HIGH sex drive with a very active sex life and enjoyed every minute of sex..... I was on Yaz for a year and a half and after almost a year I started having pain after sex and even sometimes towards the end. I was starting to hate having sex because of that pain later.
Now after reading all the other side effects women have been having I realize that some of my health problems recently, like pain and swelling and tingling in my legs and the crazy moods and the joint pain, etc could have been because of this. I have had trouble focusing and memory problems and such high irritability. I tried speaking ot my DR and got no real response... then looked for another doctor and again got a response that it was just birth control... even after trying to explain that Ive been on BC for such a long time and NEVER had any issues before Yaz, he told me that it could be that now its proteins binding and less testosterone in my system causing the lack of sex drive!
LADIES... I would advise seriously and continuously speaking to your Dr's about it and taking action and switching yourselves off. My first dr said I had low estrogen and switched my pill and I still got no response. I switched in Dec 2009 to Necon and now 6 months later, still no sex drive, still issues.... I am stopping my BC completely for the first time since I was 17 yrs old. I hope that I can get my body in check again and then restart my old birth control, ortho tri cyclen, which is what I started on when I first started BC at 17!
