I'm sure you all can relate to the annoying and uncomfortable symptoms of PMS - it's just part of being a woman. For most women, PMS is manageable, but if you're having symptoms that are so severe that they affect your daily activities, your work, or your relationships, then your PMS may actually be PMDD (premenstrual dysphoric disorder).
Symptoms of PMDD include sadness and crying, feeling nervous or anxious, strong cravings for certain foods, breast tenderness, headaches, joint or muscle pain, bloating, and trouble sleeping. That's where YAZ comes in. It's the only birth control proven to treat these emotional and physical premenstrual symptoms.
