I stated taking Yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) at a high dosage and my breasts have grown significantly and I have gained about 20 lbs. what is happening and what should I do?
Can you recommend bcp to replace my yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) for endometriosis because I am having rashes and feelingitchy all over my body. Should i buy lower dosage?
Low Dose: I like the lower dose birth control pills, the 20mcg of estrogen pills. There are many pills, both generic and brand name at this dose. It should still help with your endometriosis. Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) is the lower dose of yasmin, you might try that? I personally like Mircette or kariva. Sometimes it takes awhile to find the one that fits with your body. ...Read more
I have read that taking a certain dosage of normal contraceptive pill eg yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) cud be the equivalent of the emergency pill. Is this true?
Yes, but........: The emergency contraceptive is nothing more than high-dose pills to alter the lining of the uterus to interfere with implantation. Please contact your physician regarding how to use. But remember, emergency contraception is only 85% effective when taken within the therapeutic window. So, time is ticking..... ...Read more

I took yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) 21 days pack. it has been 5 days since the dose got over but i dint get my periods yet. i never missed any pill. is this normal?
Period delays: Yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) is a low dose oral contraceptive. Taking the oral contraceptive at the same time (within an hour of the previous day) makes the pill more safe to rely on. Five days may not be enough time to see bleeding from pill withdrawal. Obtain a serum (not urine) pregnancy test if no bleeding before the seventh day, and if negative, start the next package of pills. You may want to change the type. ...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
I've been on my pill (yasmin) for about six years. I love its benefits and i don't want to change, but i spot all the time. Its embarassing. Thoughts?

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
