Today was my 4th day on Yasmin and my appetite is raging! It is unbeliavable! I have been on a diet for two days because I cannot afford to gain any weight since I am recovering from an eating disorder and have to maintain my weight. If this goes on like this, I don't think I can continue dieting and trying to control hunger. I never had this problem with any other BCPs. I am considering switching to Ortho Tri. which I had no problems with. It even controlled my break-outs. I will try to give Yasmin more time but I don't think I can deal with constantly starving all the time.
My skin is much better though. It can't be Yasmin though, so it is the combination of Tazorac (1 minute) and maybe the jojoba oil.
I think that as long as you are on a low-dose BCP, you will have skin benefits. Most of the anti-androgenic claims of Yasmin is theoretical, there are no shown differences in terms of clearing acne between Yasmin and other low dose pills. So don't think it is your only option. I've taken several BCPs, if you need advise on which on to pick, let me know.
