GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT YAZ
Yaz belongs to class of combination oral hormonal contraceptives (commonly known as "The Pill"), and proves to be a very effective, convenient, and easy to use method of birth control. Because of its specific pharmacology, Yaz may be useful not only in the field of contraception, but also in treating acne, and assisting in relieving the symptoms of premenstrual dysphoric disorder, or PMDD (not to be confused with PMS - Premenstrual Syndrome, a condition not treatable with Yaz). Naturally, these effects are an additional advantage to using Yaz as a birth control drug - whatever else it is used for, this medication will still prevent you from becoming pregnant. Yaz should only be used by women over 14 years of age, who have already had their first period. Remember that just as any other medication, Yaz may not be suited for everyone, and you may need to contact your medical healthcare provider to learn more about this medication as well as get information on what you should and should not do while taking this drug. Smoking is one of the several serious prohibitions while taking Yaz, as it may greatly increase the risk of serious side effects, such as heart attack or blood clot.
