So I have been on Yaz for about 18 months now. I only get my period for one day but during that one day I retain water so severe I cannot wear pants comfortably. I am talking a good two inches my stomach swells while on my period for this one day.
It's quite painful, as in my stomach hurts to lay on due to being so swollen. This isn't normal. How can I help this painful side effect??
I know I should avoid salty foods, but I need more than that. How can I help the swelling go down??
