headaches on pill
i was using depo provera injection as birth control for 8 years, now decided to go onto yaz tablets (drospirenone 3mg and ethinylestradiol 0.02mg). i am on it for 2 days, but have a prolonged, severe headache and hot flushes for 2 days... i think it could be the pill that causes it. must i stop the pill, or will the headaches go away??

Most of these side effects disappear within a few weeks.
