Possibly: With pcos, the most important things that you can do on your own to maximize your chance of pregnancy include managing your weight and eating healthy. Beyond that, get some help with medication such as Clomid (clomiphene) or others when you are ready to try and get pregnant. And good luck. ...Read more

Long time: Women without risk factors like chronic hypertension, diabetes with damage to their blood vessels, history of blood clot, smoking, can take birth control well into their 40's. As you know all birth control pills can thicken your blood, and put you at increased risk for blood clot. Yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) a little more so (3-4 in 10, 000 women versus 1 in 10, 000 with regular birth control). Exercise and be health. ...Read more

Melasma?: If the darkened facial skin occurred after starting yasmin, (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) you may have developed melasma, a skin discoloration that may resemble a face mask. Oral contraceptive pills may make some people more susceptible this when combined with sun exposure. You should discuss this with your doctor and ask whether you should continue the birth control pill. ...Read more

Tough: Yazmin is there to balance your hormone level as in PC OS you tend to have higher testosterone levels. Yazmin provides estrogen and Progesterone for you, but of course in the true sense it is a birth control pill. My suggestion would be to see a fertility specialist and internal medicine physician or endocrinologist. ...Read more

Birth control pill: Yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) is a birth control pill. The nature of birth control pills is that they administer defined amounts of hormones to the body. The hormones suppress the production of ovarian hormones and stop ovulation. The regular administration of defined amounts of hormones also regulates a woman's cycle. On the downside, a woman taking birthcontrol pills cannot get pregnant. ...Read more

My pcp prescribed yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) for my pcos. Is it safe to take yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol)? I've heard so many horror stories surrounding this ocp. Should i take any precautions

In my opinion if: U have pcos that should be managed by an obgyn , not a pcp, I am sure your pcp is very good , but an obgyn knows more about that, i personally never prescribe that pill anymore , #1 it has 30 mcg estrogen, # 2 it is a 21/7 pill and for my pts who have pcos they should be on a 24/4 or a 24/2/2 or take the pill continuously and yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) has drospirinone u have to watch your k+ and no anti-inflammatories. ...Read more

Complicted.: blood clots can be a problem with your condition. Do you have plans for pregancy? Being pregnant can be risky as well and you might have to take blood thinner shots during pregnancy. Problems are rare, but I have seen them. Fertility pills and monthly provera (medroxyprogesterone) are alternatives. It is a delicate balance and it will be your decision as to what to do. But hey life is good, enjoy. ...Read more
