I went on the birth control Yaz for acne as well as pmdd symptoms. I was on it for about a year with no problems or negative side effects at all. I came off the pill for about three months and want to start birth control again. However, my mother brought home Ocella - a generic brand. I am a little hesitant to start an unfamiliar pill and want to know if anyone has had this experience.
I would strongly reccomend you do not take Yaz, Yasmin or Ocella. They have caused horrible side effects such as blod clots, liver disease, kidney failure, galbladder disease, and stroke. I would talk to your doctor about trying a different brand of birth conrtol for your healths sake. I am not a doctor and i am not guaranteeing you will experience or not experience these side effects but just to be on the safe side i would think long and hard about trying a new brand of birth control pills. I hope I helped!
