Well I'll tell you about all the Birth control pills I have taken because that isn't the only two. haha.
Ortho Tri Cyclen- gave me terrible headaches and made me dizzy all the time, didn't help my skin it made me break out
Alesse- It was great for 2-3 yrs. and then I gained about 25lbs. on it (I was working out and eating right too) The weight was like cement so I got off of it for 3 months and lost all my weight and then some! Other than the weight gain I did notice major food cravings.
Ortho Tri Cyclen lo- made me feel tired and moody all the time, made my skin break out all over the place (I never had acne before in my whole life and I am 21) I cried alot too. Didn't notice any weight gain though.
Yasmin- my gyno. recommended this to help my skin clear up from the previous pill and it has a mild diuretic to keep the water weight off. I haven't had any side effects on this pill it is wonderful. I do have to pee alot because of the diuretic but it's worth it to not look like a blimp! It is also clearing my skin up really well! It just takes some experimenting before you find the right pill but when you do it's worth it.
