In Topic: Should I Switch From Yaz Or Stay On It?

05 April 2014 - 04:59 PM

I just think that yaz sucks and I'm going to switch :/ I wonder why yaz is even helpful for skin when it has more progestin? I don't think that's agreeing with me. I hate that I stay on a pill for so long to see if it'll magically clear up one day but it doesn't. I should probably be able to tell in the beginning if it works or not.

Yeah but do your spots actually go away? Mine just stay or they pop up and heal but leave a red mark. I have quite mild acne so I think it's crazy to have to go on something else with the birth control. The antibiotics for that short time probably ruined my gut health...I have some erythromycin with benzoyl peroxide topical, but don't use it much. It makes my skin dry and that makes it more noticeable around the problem areas. Topicals don't seem to do much for me. Usually the less stuff I put on my skin, the better. I just want clear skin and be able to go to the gym everyday. I know it would help my skin to go to the gym and I loveee working out, but I just can't do it the way it is :( And I don't want to wear cover up there in case it makes it worse..


In Topic: How Long Did It Take Acne To Go Away When Taking Birth Control?

I just want to know if it can really take 6 months. It's hard to wait sad.png

 

It does take 4-6 months to see results from a "good" birth control for acne.

 

However Aviane uses levonorgestrel, which is one of the worst progestins for acne. It may end up making your acne worse than before you started.

 

Please check out the link in my signature "good/bad birth control for acne" and get your derm to switch you to low androgenic pill.

 

Well I took Aviane previously with no problems. But that was also when I had perfect skin before I even started the pill. I was on for like 3 years. I went off birth control for a year and wish I never did cause 6 months after I developed acne that I never ever had a problem with before. Maybe when I got on the pill the first time it just kept my skin clear. Like I never got a spot! So I thought it would be best to go back on the same formula in case changing could cause nausea or other bad side affects. They did give me a generic of Aviane this time so I don't know if it does actually work the same. They tell me it does.

 

I've considered switching pills, but what if it makes the acne worse? My doctor says I should wait 6 months. He says all birth control does help with acne. I should add it's not severe at all. It's just a few spots around my mouth and chin. But it's a big deal to me. I don't want to have to use any cover up.

 

Ok so I may have gotten my doctor to switch me. He's thinking Yaz. But I'm really worried about all the lawsuits and commercials I've seen about it. I'd rather not die. What would be the next best thing? Also that doesn't cause unwanted hair growth like arms, in between breasts.
