Q: Hi im a 22 yr old single soilder in us army. i've recently decided to try the pill because im deploying and i would like to breath easy not worrying to much about cramps and heavy bleeding. i spoke to a gyn and i told her whatever she recommened should be fine as long as it was low estrogen, and helped with cramps. i was curious about yaz because it helps with acne. she prescribed this to me but right after i was reluctant and wanted to go ask her to change it. after reading im really nervous to start using it. i know females who use it in the military im jus worried i may break out worse and cramps will become worse as well. i realize by the time i get a response i may have taken it but i would appreciate it a lot. would you recommened this birth control to me,or should i take it back?
