I have been on Yaz for 2 years. I have had severe headaches since taking the medicine. I recently went to an urgent care clinic because my headache was so bad. My blood pressure was 167/120 and has stayed high despite being put on a diuretic this past week. I am only 24! I am normal weight, 63" 115lbs, and eat very healthy. Has anyone else experienced high blood pressure on Yaz?
You need to make an appointment with the prescriber of the Yaz. BCP can cause strokes in some people. You may have better luck on another kind of pill or you may be one who cannot take the pill. Dont wait, make an appt and let the prescriber know you are having elevated B/P since starting Yaz. Be sure you let them know about the headaches too.
