Questions about Yaz?

We have answers.

What is Yaz?

Yaz is a form of birth control known as a combined oral contraceptive (COC). Like other COCs it combines the hormones, estrogen and progestin.

In the case of Yaz the two specific hormones it contains are drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol, but other COCs will use different combinations.

What does Yaz do?

Yaz increases your body’s levels of drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol, the two hormones it contains. By increasing these hormones, Yaz can stop ovulation, the process of eggs being released from your ovaries. 

Yaz also changes the lining of your uterus and the mucus surrounding your cervix, to make it more difficult for sperm to enter into your uterus and cause pregnancy.


What is the generic version of Yaz?

Yaz is a brand name drug, but a non-branded equivalent is Mya.

How do you take Yaz?

Yaz comes in a pack of 28 tablets. There are 24 active tablets in each pack, along with four inactive tablets that do not contain any hormones.

You may start the pill on any day of your cycle, but you should use backup birth control (like condoms) for two weeks until the pill becomes effective. If you miss a pill, please refer to this website from the Society of Obstetricians and Gynecologists of Canada about what to do next: https://www.sexandu.ca/sos/.

What are the side effects of Yaz?

With Yaz, there is the rare but serious side effect of blood clots.

Shortness of breath, chest pain (particularly with deep breathing), coughing up blood, persistent leg pain, or redness, swelling, or warmth in your lower legs (usually one-sided) can all be indications of a blood clot in the legs or lungs, and should never be ignored.

Please seek medical attention promptly if this occurs, in the emergency department.

Can I take Yaz for acne?

Yaz also works as an acne treatment thanks to its ability to suppress your body’s production of androgen hormones.

Acne develops because of fluctuations in your levels of androgen hormones. When your body produces too much testosterone (a powerful androgen that’s present in men and women), the amount of natural oils called sebum secreted by your pores can increase and cause acne.

You can read more about birth control for acne here.

Who should not take Yaz?

You should not take Yaz if you’re pregnant or if you smoke and you’re over 35. You should also not take Yaz if you have a history of uncontrolled high blood pressure, liver disease, breast disease, unexplained vaginal bleeding, migraines with aura, or a history of blood clotting disorder or clots in your legs or lungs.

If you have any questions about whether Yaz is suitable, you can ask your doctor during your online visit with Felix.

What are the alternatives to Yaz?

The Society of Obstetricians and Gynecologists of Canada provides this website to read about different forms of birth control: http://www.sexualityandu.ca. It can also help you choose different forms of birth control if you are interested in switching.

Painless process. (No pun intended). Impossible to get doctors appointment during pandemic. If it is a simple renewal/prescription, use online practitioners and leave the actual visits for the ailing and infirm.

Felix gets you into contact with doctors discreetly online to address personal matters that you'd rather not go to a doctor in person to see, you get the prescription best suited to your needs, and they'll deliver it to your local pharmacy or even your house! The only downside is the cost, which is high because unfortunately "lifestyle meds" aren't even partially covered in Canada.
