I was going to start Novyette which i heard is better than Nordette but i informed my doctor i needed something else and he said Yaz had the lowest levels.

gonna give it a few months and see what happens.
I hope it works for you!
I've been able to sign up for pharmacy discounts offered to those whose prescriptions are underinsured- it helps with the price.

i pay TT$85 for a box. Nordette use to be TT$17 when i first started. Now its TT$32 or more. coverted Yaz us problarly much cheaper than in the US. rate is 6:1 i think i will find out if the family planning clinic has Yaz but i doubt it.

i read all the warnings. read review. i've never had problems with meds so i'm banking on that. really don't need to go up another cup size though LOL

I tried using the birth control pill Junel 1/20 and was on it for 3 months, but then had to stop because it caused too many problems. I was really hoping this would be my answer for my horrible cramps, but it made my lymphatic malformation swell and caused pain. I also got new growth. It's a bit disappointing..

oh no I am sorry to hear that. I've started my second pack of Yaz with zero problems. So far great. I don't think i even felt cramps this time. But every month can be alittle different.

Glad yours is going well. I noticed problems after 2 months, which is a pretty short period of time. :/ I wish I could use the pill, would make my life so much easier, but oh well. High dose pain medication for me! lol.
