Ok, i have been on Yasmin now for 4 months..its ok, i don't get any bloatedness (or atleast not too much). But i still get the one huge cyst right before i get my period...which leaves a bid red scar forever. I never used to get any cysts using Ortho tricyclen..should I change to the Ortho Tricylcen-Lo? Anyone have any experience with it?
I was on Yasmin. While it cleared my face beautifully by Month 4, I also gained 8 lbs by Month 6.
So I switched to OTC-Lo. Thankfully, all my "Yasmin weight" is dropping off, and I don't have any major negative side effects. I am also still clear.
I don't know if OTC-Lo is better than Yasmin when it comes to clearing acne. If Yasmin is working for you, I'd say that you should probably stick with it. OTC-Lo could make you break out more, you never know! One cyst a month isn't so bad!
Last year, i was on Orthrotricyclen (not the LO version) I NEVER got a cyst..even when i stopeed using it. I did get more pimples, but never cysts. So i started using Yasmin, and then i found myself with a never-ending supply of cysts, which really leave red scars for so long...so i am now thinking i should go back to a triphaisc rgime, i think my skin lieks it better.
I really hate playing with my body's chemistry like this...
