Yasmin Birth Control Worsening My Skin?

3 posts in this topic

Hi,

I really need som advice. I have been using yasmin bcp for 3 months and 5days today. Before that I have used another bcp pill called Jeanine (ethinyl estradiol/dienogest) which really helped my acne. After about year and a half of using it I started to retain water and I couldnt loose weight so my gyno put me on yasmin (called yadine here). The first two months of using it everything was fine, I didnt get hardly any acne but from the second half of the third month is everything worse and worse. I am getting a lot of clogged pores and under the skin bumps and my hair is suddenly very oily.

Do you think that my body is still adjusting to yasmin and thats why I am getting breakouts?

Or do you think yasmin is just not good for me?

Do any of you have similar experience?

Is there such a think like initial breakout with yasmim?

Please help I am really desperate...

Hey, exact same happened to me I switched onto Yasmin and my skin was really good for about 3-4 months and eventually my skin started getting terrible I stuck with it for at least almost half a year but it did nothing but get worse. eventually decided to come off be altogether, I have been off bc for over half a year and I now have virtually clear skin

I have read somewhere that the anti androgenic effects of the hormones in Yasmin slowly wear off and are not permanent and know many people that have has the same problem

Oh thank you for your reply. That are bad news though. I think I will try to stay on it for another two moths and if nothing changes I have to switch it.
