A friend recommended to me that I give Yasmin a shot after suffering from very deep (cystic??), painful acne, especially around my chin/jaw area. I also had very oily skin. I'm telling you that within a week! of starting Yasmin, the oil was GONE!! My acne was gone in two weeks. Obviously this is not an ideal solution for everyone, but it helped me a lot (when retin-a and other meds, including antibiotics, did nothing). Yasmin has not been advertised as an acne helper (like ortho-tricycline has been.....which also did not work for me), but it worked wonders for me!

Just thought I'd share

Glad it worked for you. It worked for me too.

But I hope that others keep in mind that BCPs can work totally different from person to person. What is "great for acne" for one person will not necessarily be great for another.

hi, lrl! :-) It's me Julie B (from sunless)

anywho... YES, I must agree with you- Yasmin did wonders for my skin when I was on it- I had the most beautiful skin as a matter of fact--- beautiful, clear, normal (not oily) skin.

BUT, unfortunately I had to get off of the pill because it killed my libido, and I had other problems--- now I'm starting to break out again (not too bad, but still). I wish I could stay on the Yasmin, and have beautiful skin and still have a sex drive--- but that would be asking too much... LOL

It killed my sex drive as well, and made me gain 8 lbs. That's why I'm not on it anymore (i"m now on OTC-Lo and happy!)
