Post Denver gal - hows the yasmin?

Just wondering how its going. For me not so well. Called the dermy today and he suggested the tazorac to use 2 - 4 minutes before washing face at night ......then the jojoba oil, and then I may try the cp serum. Although I'm not sure about the last one because I hate starting too much at one time. I am pretty depressed. The cheeks that I thought were clearing still have a few under the skin and nothing has worked to bring them out. Not even the jojoba oil. I can't believe it's been almost 10 weeks on the pill and I"m still breaking out. I go for about 1 week and think things are clearing and then I start breaking out again.

Hope you are having better success.

I so sorry to hear that things are not going well for you. I actually am pretty happy with the Yasmin. My face is much better. It seems like I only break out the week I am on those fake pills, and even that has just been one or two things. Right now I am doing the jojoba oil/CP serum thing and I am pretty happy with it. My face has not been this soft in years. I also do Q H Mint Julep mask a couple times a week. And that is about it. All things considered, I am really happy with Yasmin. I just hope it continues and doesn't quit working like other things do (fingers crossed). I hope you find something that works for you.

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.
