If you experience severe PMS symptoms, such as mood swings, irritability, anxiety, fatigue, breast tenderness and increased appetite, there is a new birth control pill promises to provide significant relief. The pill is called YAZ that contains drospirenone (a new form of progestin) in addition to estrogen, and uses a dosing cycle of 24 days on, 4 days off.
A recent study published in Obstetrics & Gynecology showed that the drug reduced symptoms or premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) just as well as antidepressants.
If you suffer from PMS or PMDD and also need contraception, ask your doctor for more information about YAZ.
