Any birth control: Pill taken correctly should be effective.Get a more detailed answer ›
No: Solodyn (minocycline http://www.drugs.com/solodyn.html) will not decrease effectiveness of any hormonal birth control (although you still need to take every 24hrs as directed). With that said, it's still a good idea to make him wrap it up each & every time.

Switched from desogen (ethinyl estradiol and desogestrel) to generic apri. Are there any differences?

Emergency contraceptives use levongestrel as the progesterone, so why do yaz, (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) yasmin, beyaz contain drospirenone instead?

Experienced hairloss/thinning & cystic acne. Taking ocella (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) & spironolactone 25mg. Acne under control not thinning. Can i switch vitex for ocella (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol)?
NO: Ocella (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) is a birth control pill which helps acne.

The usual dose of spironolactone for acne is 50- 100 mg, sometimes 200mg. You will see improvement after 3 menst periods. Hair loss might improve with larger dose of spironolactone. See a dermatologist for help w. ...Read more
