Day 1


I started taking Yaz on this day (today is the 23rd, already wrote for today). I have cried for little/no reason about 5 times this week. I have been having suicide ideation, I feel sad, angry, irritable. I have no motivation. I have been binge eating like mad. I haven't been jogging much at all. I started taking Yaz because nothing seems to help my skin be clear. Proactive doesn't work, other cleaners and moisturisers haven't worked. Drinking more water hasn't worked. I want clear skin, it would help my confidence so much. But I really don't enjoy feeling this way. I feel sick to my stomach with self-loathing. I am having constant negative thoughts and anxiety. I don't even have the motivation to hang my washing out. I am going to try and stick it out. I just have to remember not to try to hang myself, because it's the pill that's making me feel this way! Honestly, I was considering killing myself until I realised it might be the pill. I have always struggled with mental health, and thoughts like "it will never get better, might as well die now" crept in. I'll try another week of it.

    Big hugs to you. It's true that a pill can trigger such thoughts. Just today I read that a mother threw herself and her 3 yo. on the rails and both died...she was on some kind of medication too. :(

    Tea tree oil might be more helpful and it shouldn't put your life in danger unless you ingest it.

    Have you tried other brands of Pill? Coz I changed from the Implanon to the Evra patch over a year ago and (mental-health wise) it changed my life...Also, evening primrose oil can help balance your moods.
