Experience

Originally took Yas at 16 years old to treat acne – wish I was never put on it as an acne treatment as there are so many other alternatives. It did it’s job but I was scared to come off it for years as I didn’t know whether my skin would be unbearably bad. Now with a super low sex drive, vaginal dryness and a sort of emotional numbness (may or may not be related), I’ve decided to come off it as it’s impacting my relationship. Yas was adequate but didn’t add or detract much value to my quality of life. I’m excited to see what life looks like post-pill.
