What are the side effects of Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) birth control pill in treating pcos and acne? In dilemma as to whether I should start or not.

Clotting and emboli: Acne develops after one has periods because of hormonally induced changes to the skin with more oils. Taking birth control pills helps to regulate this and can decrease acne.

What are the side effects of coming off Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) and how long do they last?

What are the side effects of coming off Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) and how long do they last?

Not much: There shouldn't be much in the way of side effects at all coming off yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol). The only thing that would be common may be some irregular cycles for 1-2 months. But keep in mind that most women have lighter, shorter and less painful periods while on pills. So those symptoms may increase gradually after being off for a few months. Also bcps suppress acne. That may come back too if the pills were helping. ...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

Not much: These two birth control pills both have estrogen and progesterone. They have slightly different types of Progesterone at slightly different doses.
