Conditions Treated by Yaz®
Yaz® is mainly used as a birth control medication. However it is also used to treat acne in teenagers. So Yaz® has 2 main functions, to avoid pregnancy and to maintain healthy skin. There other uses for it too. For example, doctors can also prescribe Yaz® to pre-teens who have started early menstruation cycles. In some cases Yaz® can also be prescribed to treat PMDD (premenstrual dysphoric disorder) which includes symptoms like anxiety, stomach pain, depression, mood swings, fatigue and weight gain. In some cases, Yaz® is used for other illnesses that have not been mentioned here, for example it can be used as a Folate supplement in rare cases.
How Yaz® works
Yaz® is 99% effective against pregnancy when used correctly. The hormones used in Yaz® birth control work by preventing ovulation as well as preventing the sperm from fertilizing the egg. This means that the egg will not fertilize and attach itself to the uterus where it then develops into a fetus.
Yaz® Dosage Information
  • Typical dosage recommendations
    Yaz® birth control medication should be taken once a day, every day. When starting to take Yaz®, you should take the first on the first day of your menstrual cycle. That means the day when your period begins. I some cases your doctor might recommend that you start taking Yaz® on the first Sunday after the menstrual cycle begins. The most important thing is to make sure that you take the pill once a day, at the same time every day. Taking Yaz® at the same time every day ensures that the added hormone levels in the blood stay steady throughout the month. It also means there’s less chance of you forgetting to take it!

    Work your way round the strip of tablets so you can track your compliance easily. If you do skip a dose then consult with your doctor or the Yaz® instructions found in the packet. Being late for a dose or forgetting it altogether can result in pregnancy.

    Always keep a ready stock of Yaz® in your medicine cabinet in case of missed doses or emergency.
  • Missing a dose
    Yaz® is only 99% effective in preventing pregnancy if taken every day as prescribed. When you miss a pill, it may increase your chances of pregnancy. If you miss a dose by mistake you should take 2 pills on the same day. Take the missed dose immediately and the next dose as planned. Then continue the daily dosage schedule as planned. The same process can be followed if you miss two pills on two separate days. Take the missing two pills immediately and the third pill as planned. If you miss 3 doses of Yaz® in a row then it’s better to throw away the pack and start again using a new pack. Always use a supplementary birth control method like condoms, spermicides etc when you miss a dose to avoid becoming pregnant.
  • Overdosing
    Always consult with your doctor if you miss a dose of Yaz®, especially if it happens more than once in the same month. Taking multiple doses at the same time (making up for missed doses) can result on overdosing unknowingly. If you feel that you may have overdosed on Yaz®, contact your doctor immediately. Yaz overdose symptoms include nausea, vomiting, extreme stomach pain and vaginal bleeding.
