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.

Not more than a girl. Let's start by saying any medication has the potential to affect a developing fetus.

Do not take. There is no reason to be taking a birth control pill while you are pregnant. I assume you are referring to an accidental exposure early in pregnancy before you knew you were pregnant. The overwhelming majority of these cases turn out just fine with no long term problems. There are case reports of some complications, but they are rare. Stop your pill please. Read more...
