Birth Control

I began taking Yasmin about three months ago. My skin has been fairly clear up until that point. It seems as though my skin has broke out with acne and has not cleared up this entire time. Is that normal while taking the pill, especially when it claims to clear up skin? What should I do? I do not know if I should continue taking it to see if it goes away or change to a different pill. Any suggestions?

Re: Birth Control

I'm on Yasmin as well.

I've been on it for over a year, and right now I'm going through what you're going through. Yasmin works wonders for me most of the time, but it can't fight stress I suppose - which I've had a lot of lately.

I wouldn't change. I switched to OTC because I was in the same situation as you and the results were not good (sick during period, heavy flow, breakouts like crazy).

Give it time. If it's worked for you thus far, stay with it. But if your skin doesn't clear up eventually...I would see your doc (always a popular answer).

Re: Birth Control

i just started yasmin about a week and a half ago and im wondering how was the start for you guys? did you see results right away or is there always an initial breakout period? right now i havent had any really baad breakouts but my skin seams calmer, its probably too soon to tell i also got really dry all of a sudden i dont know if its because the pill or weather or what but did it happen to anyone else?

Birth Control


All I noticed was my skin has been really bad. In addition, I still get sick with it (stomach ache). Other than that, it's been okay. I have not taken any other pills to compare it to, though.
