How does the dosing of mirena IUD compare with beyaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol and levomefolate)? I'm on beyaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol and levomefolate) for acne help and i'm wondering how mirena will compare.

How does the dosing of mirena IUD compare with beyaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol and levomefolate)? I'm on beyaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol and levomefolate) for acne help and i'm wondering how mirena will compare.

Will not help acne: The Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD releases a very low level of hormone (a progesterone) inside the uterus.

The birth control pills that help acne are "combination" pills, with both estrogen and progesterone. ...Read more

For what reason does my stomach feel full and uncomfortable after taking a Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) birth control pill?

For what reason does my stomach feel full and uncomfortable after taking a Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) birth control pill?

The estrogen: For some women, the estrogen hormone that is in the birth control pill can cause nausea or stomach upset. I suspect that may be why your stomach feels full and uncomfortable after taking the pill. I recommend my patients who get nausea try taking the pill with a meal or at bedtime and see if that helps. Sometimes getting a pill with less estrogen or trying nuva ring works better. ...Read more
