    Question Ortho Tri Cyclen vs. Yasmin

    Has anyone taken Ortho Tri Cyclen and then switched to Yasmin? If so did you notice many changes in your skin? Both are supposed to be good for acne. I have been on OTC for years and am now thinking about switching to Yasmin. Any comments?

    I have. OTC didn't seem to help my skin at all. When I was on Yasmin my skin cleared in 4 months. But I gained weight on both of them, so now I have changed to OTC-LO. It has about half the hormones of the regular original OTC. I've only been on it for a week, but I love it so far because my face is still completely clear and I am still losing the weight that Yasmin had put on.

    But please remember that everyone's body reacts differently to different BCPs!

    hello bellydancer,
    my 16 yr. old daughter was on otc for about 3 months and it didn't seem to help her complexion much. She didn't break out bad but it didn't seem to help heal her face either. We switch to yasmim 3 months ago and her face is almost flawless. She did not have an initial break out and her weight is still the same. Everyone reacts differently but this has been a positive switch for us.
