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

Doctors, what are the side effects of yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol)?

Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol): The FDA makes most contraceptive makers list a huge number of side effects. There are too many to list them in this answer. Google Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) side effects and you will find links that list them by system effected. Some common ones are: nausea, headaches, and amenorrhea (no period).

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

What are the side effects of a merina iud dose it make you put on weight and could it cause low libido as the yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) pill did for me?

What are the side effects of a merina iud dose it make you put on weight and could it cause low libido as the yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) pill did for me?

Weight gain - yes: Change in libido- maybe. The Merina IUD contains progestin only, whereas Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) has a combination of estrogen and progestin, so effect may be slightly different. Overall reports suggest that the libido is affected less by Merina compared to combination BCP, but side effects are reported to improve after 6 months. Advantages of IUD: excellent contraceptive effect and no need to take daily med. ...Read more

While on levlen ED I had no side effects as soon as I switched over to Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) I had fatigue moody angry and emotional but Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) is lower dose than levlen?

Different progestero: There are two different hormones in bcp. Though Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) has less estrogen than levlen, Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) has a different progesterone. When women have mood swings on bcp it is usually from the type of progesterone. Sounds like you feel better on the hormones in levlen, and it is a good bcp. Go back to it, or speak with your doc about a pill with the same Progesterone as levlen. ...Read more

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.

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. But even low dose estrogen birth control pills increases the risk of deep venous clots (DVT) and can risk the emboli to the lungs. A family history of clots is a contraindication. Hydration decreases risks of forming clots. ...Read more

I want to start oral contraceptives. I am 21. Which is the safest oral contraceptive, i.E. Causes least side effects and is very effective?

See a Provider: We are lucky that there are so many oral contraceptives to choose from. There are ones that give light flows, and reduced frequency of flows. Since you have so many options, you should spend some time exploring them with your provider. Low dose pills are popular and can protect you against cysts, cancer and of course, unwanted pregnancy and painful periods. ...Read more

Are the long term side effects know after 10 years using levetiracetam? Can levetiracetam cause health problems while taking oral contraceptive pill?

See below: Fortunately, Levetiracetam is not metabolized through the liver, and is unlikely to interact with your ocp's. So far, there is very little to suggest long-term chronic issues on your med, and so I find no reason to have concerns regarding your future. ...Read more

If I am having mid cycle acne on yaz, only on right side of chin does that mean I'm ovulating and is there a chance the yaz can't stop all eruptions?

If I am having mid cycle acne on yaz, only on right side of chin does that mean I'm ovulating and is there a chance the yaz can't stop all eruptions?

Not ovulating: If you are on Yaz birth control and taking it correctly then you are not ovulating. Yaz can offer some improvement in acne but it should not be considered a primary treatment for acne. If you main concern is acne improvement then consider seeing a dermatologist for acne medication. There are many effective options that can work with birth control pills to improve your complexion ...Read more

I've been bleeding for 3 weeks and 1 day with microgynon 30 my doctor changed me to yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) 5 days ago and the bleeding still isn't stopping?

I've been bleeding for 3 weeks and 1 day with microgynon 30 my doctor changed me to yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) 5 days ago and the bleeding still isn't stopping?

It's OK: Well, first of all bleeding all the time isn't just inconvenient, it's downright annoying! Changing birth control may work but you will need to give it 3 months or so to kick in. I strongly advise you keep taking the pill as directed. You may bleed irregularly over the next month while your body adjusts to the new hormones. If your bleeding hasn't improved by the third pack, see your gyno. ...Read more
