Re: Yasmin and acne?

Hey.. Im taking yasamin I just finished the 2nd week and My skin is still bad. I didnt expect it would make it better right away anyway. before Yasamin I was taking Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo and it made me way worse (I think) all I know is I never had it as bad or in the places Im getting cysts now before I started Ortho Lo. Anyway I have sinse found out from others that Ortho Lo has not been good for many girls on it for there acne too. I had to stay on a BC cause Im staring Accutane here in the next 2 weeks so I had my gyno switch me to a BC that is better known to help acne.
I would love to hear any feedback from anyone on Yasamin as well. Do you have a bad initial break out on it? I read somewhere that it might be rough the 1st month or so.. I dunno

Thanks

Re: Yasmin and acne?

Stick with Yasmin for at least 4 months. It took around 4 months for my skin to start clearing. I have problems with my back breaking out too. I've been on Yasmin for over a year and it's still working for my back acne pretty well. Not as well as it used to but better than nothing.

Re: Yasmin and acne?

hey there

i am a week into my 4th month with yasmin.
up intil the last week of my third month i saw no change in my acne (face) and it just never let up, for about 3 months (i was pretty discouraged too). But on my last week of my 3rd month i finally saw the acne let up a little.. now it seems like its just getting better and better...i still have a few tiny spots but if i dont mess with them they go away and arent very bad.
im ultimately shotting for month 6 to see if things get even better because ive heard girls say "give it 4-6 months". Im only in the begining of month 4 and things are deffinately better than the begining months. i deffinately agree with those who say give it time.

Re: Yasmin and acne?

I switched to Yasmin 2 months ago (I just started my third month pack) from using OrthoCyclin. My skin changed immediately. I still get cystic breakouts, but only at about 20% of what it used to be.

Re: Yasmin and acne?

Spironolactone didn't change my sex drive at all, but the pill always kills it. So if Yasmin doesn't work its worth at try.

Re: Yasmin and acne?

Yasmin contains spironolactone. You should look it up on the internet for more info. It's a small amount, though, so maybe it won't affect your sex drive all that much.

I had to get off of the Yasmin because it made me breakout very badly with cysts around my chin and jawline. I was on it for over a year. Once I switched back to Zovia, my skin cleared up in 6 months.

Yasmin does work well for some people, though. If you notice alot more jawline acne, though, I would get off of it. Lots of people at this board have reported an increase in jawline acne on Yasmin.

Re: Yasmin and acne?

The severe jawline acne I had before taking Yasmin has completely dissappeared now that I am on it. I guess it is different for everyone!

Re: Yasmin and acne?

It certainly is, which is why it makes it so frustrating for people looking for help! What works for one, just won't for another.
Grrr!!

Re: Yasmin and acne?

hi, I just went to doctor yesterday and asked him to prescibe me Yasmin.
I will start taking it this Sunday. I didn't know if I should start, since I just read ppl said it will give more breakouts and the side effects. I have not take any birth control pills before. So now I hesitate...I really want to have good skins. I have acne skin for 4 yrs...really upset me a lot...my skin is very strange...sometimes good, sometimes bad...sometimes is clear..and all of a sudden like recently sooo many big ones growing and they hurt a lot. Please help, should I give Yasmin a try? or is there other BC pills are better that you guys have tried. Please reply me. Thanks! I really hope all of us will have very clear skin very very soon..I always just wish I have no pimples on my face....in all these 4 yrs...

Re: Yasmin and acne?

Well... you CAN stop after a month but i doubt it will start working after only a month. It took over 4 months for me to see a difference in my skin.

Re: Yasmin and acne?

Does anyone know if Yasmin has the same blood clot risk as Diane-35? I've been taking Diane for about 2 years now and haven't experienced any side effects except for some weight gain, but it's completely cleared up my skin. But because of the weight gain, I was thinking of giving Yasmin a try.

Re: Yasmin and acne?

Yamin killed my sex drive and my skin. A real lovely combination. I almost strangled my derm for putting me on it. The only BCP that worked for me was Desogen. But I hear good things about Diane-35.
