I just switched birth control pills from triphasil to yaz, (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) will I notice any difference?

No: The only event that can occur when women switch birth control pills is a low risk of "break-through bleeding, " or spotting for a few days in the first month or two of the new pill pack. This has no effect on pregnancy protection, but is just a minor inconvenience.
