OK, I gather Yaz is an oral contraceptive, which can have a whole range of side-effects which your gynae and pharmacist should have told you about. And these can include mood disorders and general moodiness. And apparently iritability.
I understand that one doesn't want avoidable medical consultations, but just as someone should see at least a GP and preferably a psychiatrist for a proper assessment before starting on an antidepressant, so I believe one should have a imilar consultation and asessment before coming off them.
