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

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

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
