I have been on the pill "yaz" for about a year

Patient : I have been on the pill "yaz" for about a year and have been unhappy the entire time due to the way it changed my body and so have recently stopped taking it about 2 weeks ago. It has always given me a very big swollen lower abdomen, that doesn't ever get smaller, only bigger. It's also caused horrible bloating, with my stomach bloated after eating a small meal first thing in the morning, and getting larger and larger every day. Would you know what the swollen lower stomach is? Is there anything to reduce it as I assume that is causing the extreme bloating
