Customer reply replied 2 years ago
My periods have been regular. Last normal period was last month. Feb 10th I started taking yaz for my vacation that started Feb 21st and my period came normally on the 23rd but is heavier and longer than normal. Usually it would be finished by today. The reason why I took it in the first place was to stop it from ruining my vacation.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I read on an earlier thread that you posted that if I triple up my Yaz it could help? Or can it make it worse?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
It is urgent and I had to re ask the question to another doctor. Thank you for your time.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
