I know that different things work for different people..but which one of these pills has worked better for ya'll? Or is there another kind of bc pill that people are using?.. any help would be great cus im supposed to start on one next month im thinkin about accutane but i really wanna keep my options open for bc pills first
i woulod say try Diane 35. Im using it right now. It does cause ur acne to get worse in the beginning but then after 3 months its supposed to get better. ive been on it for 2 now. its helped a lot of ppl. ortho i heard takes longer...
Both Diane-35 and Yasmin have cleared me up. I'm on Yasmin right now, and getting great results from it. None of them gave me intial break-outs. OTC gave me one, but that was probably because it was the first pill I was ever on. After 3 months, OTC also cleared me up. I switched to Diane after OTC because it was giving me horrible mood swings.
Delphi is that really true?
Because just recently I went to my doctor to see if I could swap from Diane 35 to Yasmin. Although Diane 35 works pretty well overall for me, I still have some clogged pores in my T zone and some occasional cysts. But my doctor wouldn't prescribe me Yasmin immediately, she said that because of the higher risk of blood clotting from Yasmin, she wanted me to try Retin A first to see if that worked instead so I wouldn't have to go through any unnecessary risk. Therefore I thought Yasmin would have the higher blood clotting risk..
yeah, unfortunately it is. Just do a seach on google for Diane 35+blood clots, and you'll see. I haven't heard anything about the Yasmin, but I understand they are similar, so they both may have that side-effect...but personally I haven't heard anything about the Yasmin.
Diane 35 is not available in the US. I was on it when I lived in canada, and really liked it. My US doctor looked at the articles regarding blood clot and Diane 35 and she said it seemed inconclusive to her cause all forms of BC carry that risk...who knows. Anyways, she recommended Yasmin 28 and that's what I'm starting on now....
These recent reports about Diane35 are inconclusive and not entirely scientific. Many women have stopped taking this pill after hearing these stories. I don't agree with this, as stopping/switching pills is also not good for your body unless you are having definite problems. All 3rd generation birth control pills carry a higher risk of blood-clots (Yasmin, Diane35 , etc.) but there are many other factors to take into consideration as well (family history, weight, smoking, etc.) and many of these were not looked at fully in the recent reports.
