    orthotricyclen vs. yasmin

    hey everyone,
    i was put on ortho lo back in june and stayed on it for 3 months, but it made my acne worse. so my dr. prescribed regular orthotricyclen b/c this one is FDA approved for acne, well i've been on it for 4 months now, and its not doing anything. its not as bad as the ortho lo, but not what i expected either. i'm wondering if my body doesn't react well with the triphasic(different hormones every week) pills. i know yasmin has the same level of hormones throughout the pack and i'm thinking of trying it. what is everyone's experience who have taken both these pills? which do you prefer for acne treatment? thanks a lot!

    i have been on both ortho tricyclen and yasmin. ortho didn't do anything for me other than make me moody. i love yasmin. no side effects at all. makes me feel less bloated. also kept my face clear. some doctors will prescribe yasmin with spironolactone. everyone reacts differently to different bc. some people hate yasmin.
