This occurs when the pill is suddenly stopped, which trigger the uterus to bleed, even though you only used 4 days worth. Also,uterine fibroids can cause irregular bleeding (can be seen on ultrasound), and well as hormonal irregularities. ...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
