Hi, I really need help!! I am taking yasmin and on placebo week I ALWAYS break out. So I began to take only active pills. Is this ok? I plan to continue doing this (never take sugar pills and go straight to active pills) until I want to have children. PLEASE HELP!!

I hope you talked to your OB about that. I mean I'm sure it wouldnt hurt but you just always want to be on the safe side of things. Also, Yasmin makes you clear as long as your on it. Not trying to scare you, but those breakouts you get in the "inactive week" of pills might happen ten times worse after you stop the pill completely. I was on Yasmin 10 years. Got off and was pregnant a month later. My skin went to hell with things I had never seen before after that. Just something to think about. Id also say get off the pill 6 months to a year before trying to conceive. Let your skin do its thing (if it even does react) naturally so you don't get invaded during pregnancy. Best of luck to you hun!
