Reviews for Beyaz

Pia · Taken for 6 months to 1 year April 7, 2021

For Birth Control: “This was the worst medication I've ever taken. It gave me terrible nausea, cramps, and stomach pain. I was somehow allergic to the placebo reminder pills - it gave me hives and trouble breathing. It also caused bladder spasms. You couldn't pay me to take this again.”

For Birth Control: “I started taking Beyaz in 2016 and was on it for four years. I never had any serious side effects, just headache, some slight stomach pain and mood swings. I am now back on it after being off for a year and I’ve had much worse mood swings. I’m hoping they will subside in the coming weeks and am willing to stick to it because I have PCOS and my periods suck. It does wonders for my acne and I have very regular easy periods on it. It’s nice knowing when I’m going to start and I only bleed for about 3-4 days. I do notice I have a much lower sex drive when I’m on it though. All in all this birth control is good and the good out ways the bad.”

For Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder: “I take the brand name using my insurance and the coupon from the website and pay $0 each month. I use it for PMDD, PCOS, endometriosis, and adenomyosis. I was previously on Xulane, which made me have irregular cycles non-stop and I was tired of having my period all the time. With Beyaz, I go for much longer in between cycles. I haven't taken it for 6 months yet, so my body is still getting used to it but I think it is much better. Between the Beyaz and Zoloft, my PMDD is much more controlled. I also love the extra folate.”

For Birth Control: “I am 27 years old, and started taking Beyaz a few months ago. I was extremely hesitant about taking this because I was so, -SO- afraid of gaining weight. I have taken other pills in the past that have caused weight gain, nausea, bloating, etc, but this pill has proven me wrong, I have had no side effects, it's actually a bit shocking. So glad my doctor recommended this to me.”

For Birth Control: “I have been on Beyaz for 4 months now after being diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome. I have lost 50 lbs in the last 4 months, my mood is better, my face has cleared up dramatically, I would recommend this to ANYONE!”

For Birth Control: “I'm only on my second month but Beyaz is already an answered prayer! I've suffered from polycystic ovarian syndrome for years and birth control pills have always aggravated some symptoms. Since starting this one I've seen much less facial hair, my skin is clearing up, I'm losing weight, and I've had my first cycle with no migraines which is a huge deal for me. I also have fibromyalgia and this medicine seems to be helping with that as well, perhaps its the vitamin aspect or my hormones finally balancing some. I was very hesitant at first and I'm so glad I gave it a shot! Thank you Bayer!”

For Birth Control: “I love Beyaz. The only side effects I have experienced is increase in breast size, increased sex drive and clearer skin. I would strongly recommend trying it. And definitely ask your doctor for the Bayer savings card that makes your first prescription $5 and only $25 for the rest of your prescriptions. I have no prescription insurance coverage so it is fantastic for me because I will never have to pay over $25. Hopefully it is as great for you as it is to me!”

For Birth Control: “I was taking Yaz, but then for whatever reason the company added something to change it to Beyaz. Yaz was seriously a saint for me. Amazing periods, not hormonal at all, great skin, the works! I've been on Beyaz for over a month now, and I have not cried this much since I broke up with the love of my life over a year ago, and I have zero control of my emotions and how I feel. ”

Nurse Mela · Taken for 2 to 5 years July 10, 2014

For Acne: “I love Beyaz. I was on Beyaz for 4 years and decided to try a new pill (Dumb). I switched to another birth control for a year and broke out terribly, battled depression and had inexplicable mood swings. I switched back to Beyaz two months ago and my acne has cleared COMPLETELY after a month and a half, my breasts grew a cup size, and I am not gaining weight. I am also a runner and was worried about the 'blood clot' scandals with this medicine, however, I have never had a problem. It is an incredible birth control pill for me and I absolutely LOVE it. I am also a nurse- from my understanding, I want to note that many of the issues with blood clots are in HIGH RISK patients- those who smoke, who are over 40 etc. Take care of your body!”

For Birth Control: “Previously I was on Yaz for about 5 years and my insurance didn't cover it so I switched to BeYaz. I was on it for a good two years because it's the same thing as Yaz. Personally, I love this birth control. This is the only birth control for me. I suffer from PMDD and this helps me tremendously. And I also suffer from acne, my skin cleared right up in a week. Periods are better and shorter. No weight gain or other side effects. Perfect pill. I highly recommend this birth control.”

For Birth Control: “I'm 16 and I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome about 2 weeks ago. I was basically not getting my period. My pediatrician recommended Beyaz to control my Hormone level and some other things. I was skeptical about taking Birth control because of side effects such as depression and weight gain. I tend to be a very happy and energetic person and honestly I was scared to lose that, I was VERY SURPRISED THOUGH, Beyaz hasn't changed my mood at all, I haven't gained weight and overall I feel fine! Except for its made me TIRED. I work around that though and its no big deal. As for acne, Beyaz controls it amazingly. So far THANK YOU BEYAZ! You're really helping my future.”

For Birth Control: “I have a history of depression/anxiety which I'm currently treating w medication. I also have had symptoms of PMDD in the past. Beyaz is the ONLY birth control I have tried that completely takes away the PMDD, clears my face, hasn't made me gain weight, etc. I love it. When a generic for Beyaz came out (Rajani), I tried it for 3 months and each month two days before starting my period I had terrible PMDD episodes with extreme depression/ anxiety/ cramping/ migraines. I'm going back to Beyaz.”

Nic July 18, 2019

For Birth Control: “This is my first time on BC & after researching many different brands I’m glad I was put on this one. Reading the reviews I was a little hesitant but decided to give it a try & find out how my own experience would go. The first month was rough. Actually the first week I noticed an extreme difference in my irritability/ anxiety. I would get frustrated & annoyed at the drop of a dime. I would cry for absolutely no reason at all. I also experienced nausea & headaches on a daily basis but they eventually went away on their own, my body took some time to adjust but I can say that this form of birth control works well for me. I take it at the same time every day & have had lighter shorter periods with almost no cramping. Prior to BC I had heavier periods & days where I couldn’t even get out of bed due to horrible cramps. My advice, don’t focus too much on the reviews. 9/10 times people will write a NEGATIVE experience as opposed to a positive one.”

For Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder: “I have been taking Beyaz for about 6 months now. I had PMDD extremely bad for 2- 3 weeks out of the month. A month after starting Beyaz I had no symptoms at all. I had irregular periods and now they are on time every month. I am very happy with the results and I would recommend Beyaz to anyone. Especially if they experience PMDD.”

For Birth Control: “The birth control pills I tried before Beyaz made me so emotionally crazy. My academics and social life crumbled to pieces. After stopping those pills my Gyno suggested Beyaz since I have a history of anxiety and depression, and I am SO glad he did. Because of my history and how hormones mess with those conditions, if Beyaz had the same mentally severe side effects I would be forced to forgo birth control altogether. But now my life is back on track and I deal with no emotional or hormonal effects from this pill, no nausea, no weight gain, and only headaches that went away after 2 - 3 months. Thank you BEYAZ.”

For Birth Control: “I went on Beyaz 3 months ago and just finished the third pack. I was noticing that I was always tired, nauseous, bloated, stomach pains, and eating all the time. I too thought I was in the early stages of pregnancy because of these symptoms. I started taking the pill because of horrible period cramps that would make me so sick and incapable of doing anything, it helped. Then I started getting really depressed out of nowhere, feeling sad for no reason, trapped in my own body and then that led to anxiety attacks and anxiety about when is the next time I will have this terrible feeling again. Because of that and not being able to sleep I am done with this pill! Thanks to everyone for sharing, I feel comforted to know I wasn't going crazy.”

For Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder: “I have been on Beyaz for 2 months now, I have had problems with other birth controls in the past such as large amounts of weight gain, moodiness, etc. I haven't had any of these problems with Beyaz, in fact, I haven't gained ANY weight on it! It has helped my PMDD greatly, I went from having cramps that would knock out an elephant to having almost no cramping at all, and I don't get moody or bloated like I have on other birth controls.”

For Acne: “I'm 18 years old and I started taking birth control (Lo Loestrin Fe) about a year ago for my moderate acne. I had it mainly on my forehead and some on my cheeks (nothing too bad, easy cover with makeup). I didn't experience any bad side effects with it, in fact, it stopped my period completely and I wasn't experiencing any cramps or mood swings. After a few months of taking it, I realized my acne hadn't gotten any better, and had gotten slightly worse. I decided to stick to it to see if it would clear with time. It never cleared up and I decided to go on Beyaz. It has been a week so far and it has cleared my skin drastically! I will come back and update everyone on how I'm doing!”

For Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder: “I have had horrible periods since my very first one and they got worse as I aged. My cramps got so bad that muscle relaxants and pain killers didn't even take the edge off of the pain. My hormones were worse. Had maybe 3 days out of the month that I was fine. Not to mention the amount I would bleed was horrible. I started with Yaz and was switched to Beyaz after my periods stopped coming. My periods didn't come back because the pill caused my body to stop producing a lining of my uterus, so now I take them continuously. I love this pill. For two years I was great and had no PMDD symptoms whatsoever. I will never use any other pill.”

For Birth Control: “I was on Beyaz for one month and had to switch. It made me tired and nauseous. It gave me the WORST headaches. They would last all day and Advil did not take the pain away. Maybe if I waited the whole 3 months, it would've straightened out but I just couldn't deal with the awful headaches. But like everyone says, everyone's body is different. Only pro: my mild acne seemed to clear up.”

For Birth Control: “I’ve been off and on Beyaz for about a year. I was excited to have a regular period and also the birth control factor. I stopped taking it the first time around (after 7 months) because I felt like I was going crazy. I was emotional all the time, and it affected my relationships and my eating habits. I restarted it a couple months ago, and I have to stop taking it again. I get really bad headaches, I have brain fog, and I feel like I’m pregnant because I crave different foods all the time. I don’t want to work out, I don’t have any energy, and my emotions are all over the place - terrible anxiety. I’m not going to say “don’t take this” because every woman is different, and some won’t experience any of these symptoms. But if you are experiencing these symptoms, I suggest talking to your doctor or simply acknowledging how you feel on it. I’m stopping today, and I’ll never go back.”

For Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder: “I switched from Yaz to Beyaz because Yaz got too expensive. I decided to try it because I could no longer afford Yaz and the results were much better than expected. No cramps, nice skin, and my period is always right on time like Yaz but with a few added benefits. When I was on Yaz, the week before my period I would always get bloated in the stomach area and would be self conscious about it. Also about 4 days before my period my appetite increased so much that I couldn't stop eating. On Beyaz there is no bloating and it curbs my appetite so much that I've lost some weight on it. I also used to get extremely fatigued around my period on Yaz to the point where it was hard to wake up but on Beyaz I feel more energetic than ever before.”

For Birth Control: “I was prescribed Beyaz after being diagnosed (finally) with Polycystic ovarian syndrome. After three months I've lost roughly fifteen pounds, I actually get my period (which for me is a good thing) and I see no other side effects past that that weren't bringing the changes from being put on progestin back to normal. If you have PCOS or similar symptoms, I'd recommend researching it further.”

For Acne: “I'm 24 years old I have battled with sudden breakouts for the past 6 years. I did not have active acne, but I had zero control on random breakouts in my cheeks. I have used literally every product on the market and altered my diet to see if I would benefit from it, absolutely nothing has worked. My last resource was stimulating my hormones to see if this might be the problem, also one of my girlfriends who's skin is flawless has been on birth control since she was 16 and recommended it to me. Let me tell you I've been on Beyaz for exactly one month today and my skin has never been so flawless, its unreal. I've had zero side effects other than the best quality silky skin I've always dreamed of. Thank you Beyaz. ”

For Birth Control: “I have been on BeYaz for 5 months now. I was switched from a normal hormone birth control because it caused terrible breakouts (which I had never had in my life) as well as severe mood swings. At first, I really liked BeYaz. It cleared my skin back up to normal and I didn't notice any changes. Now I am starting to get extremely agitated at the smallest things, crying for no reason, extreme headaches, and am getting cramps like I used to without birth control. I am considering getting off birth control altogether.”

For Birth Control: “I started taking Beyaz about a month ago. I was originally taking Microgestin for birth control for a little over a year and I started to experience extreme cramps that kept me from classes on some days. I never had problems with acne or mood swings ever, especially while on Microgestin. Now that I'm taking Beyaz I have very bad acne and feel very depressed and lack luster. I normally have a very high sex drive as well and lately it has decreased immensely. Needless to say I will be switching.”

For Acne: “I was on Beyaz for about 3 years and decided to switch to lo loestrogen fe because it has the lowest hormone dosage out of all birth controls. Biggest mistake of my life! My skin was clear before LLF but 3 months into taking it, I broke out along my jawline, neck and back! To make things worse, I had the worst mood swings and felt like a crazy person 24/7. I thought these were just the side effects from switching pills and it would get better past the 3 month mark but it didn’t. I’m back on beyaz and although it’s only been 2 weeks my skin is getting better and I am back to my normal self - no more crazies! My gyno told me that beyaz is already an extremely low hormone dose BC so it really didn’t make a difference switching to something lower. Ladies- do not switch to anything else, beyaz is the best!”
