taking BC versus not

I wrote an earlier post about initial symptoms of Yaz.

I am wondering whether its normal to feel so anxious about birth control. I thought if i let my body adjust I'd be fine, but I am sooo tired and down I wonder whether its easier just to put up with irregular periods.

I get a bit of PMS bad prior to my period but otherwise I seem fine, just very irregular periods and not many over the yr (average of 7).

I'm scared of putting my body all out of wack, and feeling this miserable for a couple months while my body gets used to the pill. We are going to try for kids in 12 months so I was just going to take it until then, Is it worth it or should I stop? We arent worried about contraception as can use condoms anyway... I'm confused and anxious over it all!
