Hi, I am considering changing from cerazette to yasmin. No bad effects on cerazette other than weight gain (tested it by stopping for a few months and?

Unsure what ur? Is: I agree with unchanging from a progestin only pill like cerazette to a combine oral contraceptive pill because they are more effective and forgiving. If I miss a dose and may provide other benefits like improving acne. However, I would recommend a different formulation than Yasmin, like Loestrin or Sprjntec which have lower risk of blood clots. ...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

Hi I have spotting that is barely there due to missing a pill if I double up will the spotting be gone by tomorrow night? I'm on Yasmin

Spotting is common: Spotting is common after missing a birth control pill. It is usually recommended to take the missed pill once you realize that you missed it. Due to the fluctuation in hormone levels from missing that pill, you may have intermittent light spotting for the next week, but it will most likely resolve after a day or so. You also must use backup contraception for the rest of the pill pack. ...Read more

Breakthrough bleed: Breakthrough bleeding (bleeding at the wrong time) is very common on birth control. It happens in about 1/3 of users. Its no big deal and usually self corrects over time. If you are not satisfied or it continues to happen then consider using a different birth control method. It is a common side effect and does not mean something is wrong or that the pill is not working. ...Read more

Diagnosis: In cases of irregular or heavy period then an evaluation is warranted to determine the cause. Hormonal imbalances such as PCOS, polyps, fibroids and infections are just a few of the causes. Once a cause is found then treatment can be offered. Birth control pills are often used. There are many other options. ...Read more

I am taking depakine chrono 500 mg as well as a contraceptive pill (yasmin). Does the fact that im taking depakine make the CP less effective?

I am taking depakine chrono 500 mg as well as a contraceptive pill (yasmin). Does the fact that im taking depakine make the CP less effective?

No evidence but: Depakote does not appear on lists of medications that can decrease the effectiveness of oral contraceptives. Both Depakote and yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) have a higher risk of liver inflammation. I would suggest talking with your doctor about using a different form of contraceptive, or use an alternative to depakote. ...Read more
