Hello. I am 17 years old and I am taking the birth control called Yaz. For the past 6 months or so I have been experiencing yeast infection-like symptoms, such as: pain during urination, pain during intercourse, etc. Also, when I wake up in the morning I queef (vaginally fart) really loud, and it is uncontrolable. I went to the gyno. and they did a cultural and said that there was an intermediate amount of bacteria in my vagina. I also took a urine sample, and that came back negative for a uti. I was given several methods of medication, because the symptoms will not go away. Could my birth control pills be causing this? I am sexually active, and I use a regular condom. I have not done anything differently than before I started taking birth control. Is it safe to stop taking birth control?
