Will 65 mg Solodyn make my Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) birth control less effective?

No: Solodyn (minocycline http://www.drugs.com/solodyn.html) will not decrease effectiveness of any hormonal birth control (although you still need to take every 24hrs as directed).

Is a low dose oral contraceptive effective treatment for adenomyosis? Does the estrogen in a pill such as Alesse contribute to the adenomyosis spread?

Adenomyosis: Adenomyosis is the development of glandular material from the endometrium interdigitating into the smooth muscle of the uterus causing it to enlarge and often produce copious bleeding.

Finished Accutane tx and still have acne. Do a second round? I'm worried about the risks of that treatment. What about oral contraceptive instead?

It depends: Dermatologists can suggest a variety of medications that can be used after Accutane treatment, and oral contraceptives are sometimes recommended. Topical medications can also be used. If acne is still severe, another round of Accutane is sometimes the best choice of treatment, but the dermatologist is the best person to ask about what is the best plan for each patient. ...Read more

Ihave pcos 44"l m getting treatment of metformin ,oral contraceptive pill from 8 month how much time it will take to cure. m 26. Iwant pregnency sugge?

A "cure" like bacon: PCOS is never cured, rather it is managed like bacon is "cured" by preserving the ovaries "freshness" and function for long term use. As to how long that takes, that depends on when you want to get pregnant and use the ovaries for ovulation. They still may need to be "jump started" with an ovulation induction drug when you are ready for conception. ...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

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

Was told if I stop Yasmin, bleeding will get worse. How do I make it stop? Plz help! Dysfunctional spotting is happening for 14days. I want to stop it

Diagnosis: In cases of irregular or heavy period then an evaluation is warranted to determine the cause. Hormonal imbalances such as PCOS, polyps, fibroids and infections are just a few of the causes. Once a cause is found then treatment can be offered. Birth control pills are often used. There are many other options. ...Read more

Hi, i am considering changing from cerazette to yasmin. no bad effects on cerazette other than weight gain (tested it by stopping for a few months and?

Unsure what ur ? Is: I agree with unchanging from a progestin only pill like cerazette to a combine oral contraceptive pill because they are more effective and forgiving. If I miss a dose and may provide other benefits like improving acne. However, I would recommend a different formulation than Yasmin, like Loestrin or Sprjntec which have lower risk of blood clots. ...Read more

I am taking depakine chrono 500 mg as well as a contraceptive pill (yasmin). Does the fact that im taking depakine make the CP less effective?

No evidence but: Depakote does not appear on lists of medications that can decrease the effectiveness of oral contraceptives. Both Depakote and yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) have a higher risk of liver inflammation. I would suggest talking with your doctor about using a different form of contraceptive, or use an alternative to depakote. ...Read more
