Any similar experiences whilst taking YAZ?

I gave birth to my gorgeous daughter in May, and at my 6 week check up with my gyno I asked to be prescribed the contraceptive pill and she gave me Yaz. Since then I have been suffering terrible mood swings, irritability, complete loss of libido and depression. I feel horrible all day long and seem to mope all the time. My husband and I are arguing all the time (we used to be really close, we've never had trouble before). As you know I have a 4 month old daughter, so its not good for her with all the tension between us. I never want to do anything other than eat, so as you can imagine I have stacked on a lot of weight, so that contributes to my ill-feelings towards myself. It only dawned on me yesterday when I was watching a medical show on TV that was talking about contraceptive methods and they mentioned that some pills can cause mood swings. It was like a lightbulb moment. So did anyone else suffer the same side-effects whilst taking Yaz? If you did, did you switch, what to, and was it effective?
