Anytime: You can switch right away, just start with the third pill of yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol). but why are you on third day of your period? Normally you start the pill the sunday after first day of period. Check with your doctor first

Yes but...: Add a back birth control method up such as abstinence or condoms for the whole first pack just in case you happen to ovulate during this exchange.

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.

What is Ortho tri cyclin called in Europe? Is it the best pill for acne I heard Diane 35 yasmin yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) are not SAFE

What is Ortho tri cyclin called in Europe? Is it the best pill for acne I heard Diane 35 yasmin yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) are not SAFE

Why do you ask?: I would urge you not to believe everything you hear or read online. Your situation is already serious -- you are a woman already on isotretinoin for severe acne which may end up mutilating you if it is not managed. Have a frank talk with a physician you trust and then make a joint decision about possible use of a hormonal preparation.

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

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.

Hi I just changed from Yaz to Yazmin and I took the 4 active pills on yaz and one on Yazmin and my period still hasn't come. What should I do?

Hi I just changed from Yaz to Yazmin and I took the 4 active pills on yaz and one on Yazmin and my period still hasn't come. What should I do?

Don't worry: Continue Yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) active pills daily and anticipate bleeding during the fourth placebo week. Whenever you change pills you risk irregular bleeding. I recommend you use condoms as back up contraception.

I took Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) on the 8th day after I finished my yasmin's last tablet, am I still in safe zone?

Taking a Chance: There is a chance that you could still ovulate because of taking the pill starting late. You better use a back-up for this pill pack.

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.

I am on Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) for 6 months before was on yasmin for 5 yrs. I have not have period after starting yaz, (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) is this normal? Anything to worry about?

OCP and no period: Birth control pills can the lining thin and so it may take a while until your body adjust to it. It may make your cycles irregular or you may not have any bleeding. If you are comfortable using Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) as a birth control method, I would not stop taking it but I would monitor the bleeding.

Switch to Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) from yasmin jan13 and since then no period. Is it healthy not to have period for long time and will it affect me having babies in 2 yrs?

Switch to Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) from yasmin jan13 and since then no period. Is it healthy not to have period for long time and will it affect me having babies in 2 yrs?

Is ok: A certain number of women don't have periods while taking bcp. This is normal for some. This is a situation when missing periods is not causing harm. This should not impact trying to conceive later.

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

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

Side-effects: There are many different types of progesterone. The positive and negative effects of a birth-control pill are determined by the type of progesterone in the pill. Drospirenone is good for preventing water retention and excessive hair growth but it increases the risk of blood clot formation in legs and lungs. Its not effective for emergency contraception. Levonorgestrel works best for this.
