What are the side effects of a merina iud dose it make you put on weight and could it cause low libido as the yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) pill did for me?

What are the side effects of a merina iud dose it make you put on weight and could it cause low libido  as the yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) pill did for me?

Weight gain - yes: Change in libido- maybe. The Merina IUD contains progestin only, whereas Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) has a combination of estrogen and progestin, so effect may be slightly different. Overall reports suggest that the libido is affected less by Merina compared to combination BCP, but side effects are reported to improve after 6 months. Advantages of IUD: excellent contraceptive effect and no need to take daily med. ...Read more

What are the side effects of Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) birth control pill in treating pcos and acne? In dilemma as to whether I should start or not.

Clotting and emboli: Acne develops after one has periods because of hormonally induced changes to the skin with more oils. Taking birth control pills helps to regulate this and can decrease acne. But even low dose estrogen birth control pills increases the risk of deep venous clots (DVT) and can risk the emboli to the lungs. A family history of clots is a contraindication. Hydration decreases risks of forming clots. ...Read more

What are the side effects of coming off Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) and how long do they last?

What are the side effects of coming off Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) and how long do they last?

Not much: There shouldn't be much in the way of side effects at all coming off yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol). The only thing that would be common may be some irregular cycles for 1-2 months. But keep in mind that most women have lighter, shorter and less painful periods while on pills. So those symptoms may increase gradually after being off for a few months. Also bcps suppress acne. That may come back too if the pills were helping. ...Read more
