Discussions that mention estradiol

I agree with Sable....you are going to have an initial breakout with any pill, so you might want to stick with the Yasmin for right now. Some people have great results with it.

Zovia is just another pill, the generic for Demulen. The difference is that Yasmin combines drospirenone, a progestogen derived from spirolactone with ethinyl estradiol, which serves as the estrogenic component. Zovia does not contain drospirenone, which I believe I had a bad reaction to.
