And the best options for treatment based on more specific description of your exact situation. ...Read more

Can "high estradiol" be a side effect of spironolacton? I took 50 mg for 2 years. How long does it take to come back to normal after stop takeing it?

Very complicated: Spironolactone is a blood pressure medicine, but it also blocks a certain testosterone receptor in the skin. So gyns often use it to help with acne or excessive hair growth. It is possible your "high estrogen could be due to the underlying hormonal problem that led to the need to take spironolactone, but not to the spironolactone itself. You should discuss with with your gyn. ...Read more

2hrs before/after: If you need to take something on an empty stomach, recommendation is 2hrs before or 2hrs after meal is considered empty. So estimate that it'll take 2hrs to empty whatever is in your stomach. In other words, if you vomit 4hrs later, your pills should have been long gone & absorbed. ...Read more

How long does it take for Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) to become effect (without condoms&prevent preg)? If I take the pill (for the first time) on the first day of the period

Some thoughts...: If the Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) is not fully effective that first pack of pills (or maybe the first 2 packs), then a woman might ovulate. If she ovulates, then she is fertile around ovulation, which is about days 11-16 for a very regular 28-day cycle. But, she is not fertile (due to her period, not due to starting yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol)) when she is having her regular period of 5 days or so, when she first starts her first pack of yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol). ...Read more

How long does it take Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) (birth control pill) to help clear acne?

Give it time: I usually advise patients to give "the pill" at least 3 cycles to determine if they will experience clearing of acne. Continue to use topical acne solutions AND take some before and after pictures of your skin to convince yourself that things are better or worse. If you do not experience at least some resolution of acne symptoms discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

I've been taking 1mg estradiol + 100mg progesterone for almost 2 months. My estrogen levels are still very low, how long will it take to see increase?

Unclear plan: I would clarify with the doctor what you are taking and why you are taking it. The answer depends on the underlying problem being treated.

Was diagnosed with having thin vaginal tissue (not related to menopause, long story) how long will tissue take to repair itself without estrace (estradiol)?

If you have eliminated the cause of your thinned vaginal skin and you are producing normal amounts of natural hormones, then you should notice improvement within 2 weeks.
