Forgive my frankness: Constipation doesn't cause acne. Whoever told you this is wrong and did you a deep disservice, as did whoever prevented you from getting proper treatment for you acne when you were a teenaged girl. "pop" treatments won't touch the kind of acne that you have. Pick up the phone and call a competent physician; use topical benzoyl peroxide until you can get seen. Get a thyroid check while you're there. ...Read more

I've been on Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) for 3 months for acne but now am suffering from constipation. Does it get better over time? Is it safe to use laxatives every 2 days

I've been on Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol)  for 3 months for acne but now am suffering from constipation. Does it get better over time? Is it safe to use laxatives every 2 days

Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) is not Problem: Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) is not the problem. The cause of constipation is usually the Standard American Diet (SAD)--which is notoriously devoid of fiber. We need adequate fiber and adequate fluids (i.e., water). Try 1-2 tablespoons of psyllium husks every day--with 2 glasses of water per tablespoon. If that doesn't get you going, add 500-1500 mg of magnesium. You can't OD on magnesium, it will give you diarrhea. ...Read more
