Dear Tellie 1980
If cost is an issue, then any combination pill will do.It sounds like you may have polcystic ovarian disease in view of the irregular periods, and although some gynecologists may prefer Yaz in that it tends to have a slightly better effect on lowering testosterone, in the big scheme it won’t have a significant effect, and in terms of regulating your periods, as mentioned any pill will do .
