    I've had much better luck with Yasmin than with OTC. Remember, though, it REALLY varies from person to person! There is really no one best birth control pill!

    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.

    One thing too I heard about Diane 35 is that it is 4X more likely to cause blood clots than any other birth control pill...a couple girls died from it recently...so that is something to note.

    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.
    HTH!

    I'm confused, I thought Yasmin was the American name for Diane-35...thought they were the same thing?? Is this not true?

    They are different. Dianette is another name for Diane-35.

    They're not exactly the same thing. They have *some* things in common, but are different in many other aspects.

    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....
