Any of you ladies have experience with it? My OB prescibed it to me yesterday and he said that you will only have a period for 3 days, I like that idea. It's pretty pricy though, $45 a month. We pay full for our meds and then we get reimbursed with my hubbies company, so hopefully the reimburse for birth control!!!

Most types of bc pills will shorten and lighten your period, and they can usually take away some of the uncomfortable side effects of having a period, like cramps and bloating. I don't have any experience with yaz but i was on a generic pill for 7 years and it woked great and my periods were no longer than 5 days at the most. If your company doesn't cover the cost of this pill or only covers some of it talk to your doctor and see if there is a similar generic pill that offers the same thing.

Oh I guess I didn't even know they make generic pills, thanks for the heads up Krissy!!!

I'm on Seasonique which is the one where you go 3 months in between periods. My insurance covers most of it, but I have a $45 copay every 3 months. Insurance should cover yours, although I think the copay for a generic one is cheaper, at least with mine. Anyhow, I started Seasonique 2.5 months ago, had my period for ONE month, now get it sporatically. Doctor said "Oh yeah that happens a lot in the first 3 months"... great. haha. No side effects, although once I started taking it, I COMPLETELY lost my s_x drive. Doesn't seem to be too common though, I have seen info saying for some, it increases it. Anyway, this could be completely different since it's a different bc pill so I'll shutup now. :)

I'm about to start Yaz myself, this Sunday. I'll let you know how it goes! I'm worried it's going to make me nauseous as other bc pills did. I have no time to be nauseous!! lol

Krnj- The pharmacist told me to take it with food, if that helps at all. I am afraid of gaining weight, just when I am trying to lose the baby weight.
