Would birth control pills like Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) treat oligomenorrhea even after you stop taking them? And for how long do you take them as a treatment pls?

Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol): I suggest you see an OB if you want to treat oligomenorrhea, but hormones and naturopathic remedies can help as well. The BCP effects are not there unless they are taken regularly, and are the current main treatment to keep periods regular. If you have PCOS you need to see a Gyne-Endo to treat your problem effectively ...Read more

Birth Control Pills (Definition)

Also known as oral contraceptives, birth control pills are highly effective oral medications that use hormones to prevent pregnancy. There are two main types of birth control pills: one with estrogen and progestin (also known as the combination pill) and one with just progestin. The two main ways they prevent pregnancy are: 1) The hormones thicken the cervical mucous, which keeps sperm from entering the uterus on their way to the egg; and 2) By maintaining a level of hormone in the blood stream that prevents the ...Read more

Not likely: This sounds as if you're uncomfortable, and you should discuss this with your primary doctor, but not likely due to yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol). Nausea may be present in first 1-3 months of yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol). Try taking in the evening, but if it is occurring the first few months, it's likely to get better. Discuss benefits/risks of Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) with your doctor. ...Read more

I have varicose venis on my leg. Can I take birth control pills "yaz"?

Birth control & vein: There are many risk factors for developing blood clots & the more risk factors that you have the higher the chance that you could develop a blood clot. Both hormonal birth control & varicose veins increase your risk for blood clots, so adding the 2 risks is worse than 1 risk alone. Best option is treating the varicose veins so that this risk no longer exists, making birth control less of an issue ...Read more

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. ...Read more

I got my last period on 3/22, started taking birth control pills (yaz) on 3/23, today 4/6 I experienced pinkish mucus & a little burn sensation, why?

Pill side effects: In the first 1-3 months after starting birth control pills, irregular bleeding (termed "breakthrough bleeding" is common. For almost everyone, periods become very regular and predictable after that time. Write down the dates of bleeding, keep taking the pill at the same time daily (missed pills can cause irregular bleeding), and see your doctor if it persists beyond 3 months. ...Read more

I have been taking birth control pills for 2 weeks (sprintec 1st week, Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) 2nd week) and have had continuous bleeding since yesterday. Is that normal?

I have been taking birth control pills for 2 weeks (sprintec 1st week, Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) 2nd week) and have had continuous bleeding since yesterday. Is that normal?

Yes: Having irregular bleeding in the first 1-2 cycles of birth control pills is common. That's because the hormones in the pill are coming into balance with the women's hormones. If a woman has this breakthrough bleeding after the 3rd cycle she may need a different pill. Since you changed pills between the first 2 weeks there's more chance of bleeding. Take pill same time each day helps prevent this. ...Read more
