Is it true that certain birth control pills (ocella/yaz/yasmin) may be leading to gallbladder issues?

Is it true that certain birth control pills (ocella/yaz/yasmin) may be leading to gallbladder issues?

Controversial: Women have twice the risk for gallstones compared to men. Both estrogen and Progesterone increase the risk of gallstones. Several studies have reached conflicting conclusions, one canadian study that suggested a 20% increased risk in contrast to an english study where the risk was 10% lower compared to women not taking bcp. This suggests that if there is a risk, it is not clinically significant. ...Read more

Have a frank talk with a physician you trust and then make a joint decision about possible use of a hormonal preparation. ...Read more

Is gynera ok to take back to back without stop for endometriosis? I was taking yasmin/yaz but had allergies. Thanks.

Yes: Any formulation of contraceptive pills is fine to use 'continuously' for endometriosis treatment. The progestin hormone acts ago help 'shrink' endometriosis lesions, and helps to control the symptoms of endo. The differences in how an individual reacts to (or feels on) any given pill formulation usually reflects effects of the dift progestin components and estrogen content. ...Read more

What are the possible side effects of switching from yaz to yasmin? Being it's. 02 to. 03 mg of estrogen? Will my cycles and acne be better or worse?

What are the possible side effects of switching from yaz to yasmin? Being it's. 02 to. 03 mg of estrogen? Will my cycles and acne be better or worse?

0.02 t0 0.03 mg Est: If anything is noticed, is should be that the higher estrogen level will allow for less facial acne. It may only improve the acne and not "cure it". Make certain to take the Yasmin the same time (within the hour of the day before) so that the level of estrogen in your system is constant. Taking the bcp at odd hours in low dose types like Yas or Yasmin is, can cause variations which cause acne. ...Read more

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