It's my first kind to take and I dont know if I should trust it because alot of people are saying not to. Help ?
Stop listening to "alot of people". All birthcontrol pills have side effects, and they all have about a 99 % efficacy rate, if you take it according to directions. Read the paper you got with it from the pharmacy. Be sure you know what you're doing before you start it, if you have questions, after you read all of the paper, come back here and we'll answer them. There should also be a paper in with the pack itself with directions. Be sure you read them too.
Let me guess, you saw commercials on TV talking about how BAD Yaz and Yasmin is?! ALL birth control pills carry that risk! These risks are not unique to Yaz/Yasmin! TV lawyers never miss a trick! They are ambulance chasers. All birth control pills carry the same risks and the risks are increased in women who smoke. No drug should be taken lightly. there are risks to every single one out there. Luckily the majority of people never have problems but for an unlucky few, drugs can have devastating effects and in many cases, there is no way to tell until someone tries a medication. the best thing to do is to educate yourself, understand what symptoms to look for and when to call the Dr for certain side effects. Chances are that you will have no troubles. Your Dr wont intentionally give you something he thinks is unsafe. Believe me, he doesnt want to hurt you and he doesnt want to open himself/herself up for a lawsuit! He/She has examined you and has weighed the risks and feels that this medication will work for you. You can either chance it or not! Like I said, there is NO medication out there that is without some risk!
