  1. OK I have raved about Yasmin on this website, it was the only thing that cleared me of my horrible cystic adult acne. I have been reading about how the BC pill causes breast cancer and I hate being a slave to this pill, so I have just stopped it! Expecting my acne to return as it's clearly hormonal and always does with a vengance, I just had my first visit with a biodentical hormone doctor who has prescribed me Spiro, as he said that is in the Yasmin and that I am producing too much testosterone

  3. I am on Yasmin for 3 years now through my gyncologist. Cleared up very bad cystic acne completely. OrthoTriCyclene does nothing for acne.
  4. Tazorac is just a topical. They hardly do anything so don't hope for any miracles.
  5. I went on Yasmine and it totally cleared up my HORMONAL acne. Accutane does nothing to your hormoes.
  6. I believe that is just water coming out. Happened to me all the time. Sucks.
  7. I am 37 and had cysts starting in my 30's. If you are on accuatane, I assume you have to be on Birth Control pills right? I was going to go on accutane but first had to go back on birth control and Yasmin cleared my cystic acne in 2 weeks. My face is flawless except for one scar that a HUGE cyst left after having numerous cortisone injections. So I never went the accutane route, I think cysts at our age are hormonal. If you have not tried Yasmin I would! [ quote name=birdybird41' date='Oct
  8. You could also try Yasmin Birth Control if you can't get hte Spiro stuff. You have to use birth control before you can be put on Accutane anyways so you might as well use a BC that helps acne. Worked a miracle for me. THe doc kept talking about accutane and I told him let me get on Yasmin first and didn't need the tane becuase Yasmin cleared my huge cysts in 2 weeks. Never got a cyst again. It's a shame, because now I can't ever go off, or it's cyst city.
  9. Yasmin takes about 3 weeks for me to start clearing my skin, I would say by 4 weeks, my skin was crystal clear after starting it. How long did it take before you got the skin you always wanted. Actually, dd is in her 4th month and doing much much better but still has bumps. She is also taking spiro. She could be clear within 6 months I suppose.
  10. Yasmine worked for my huge cysts. Been on it for over 3 years now. I have hormonal acne.
  11. I have been on Yasmin for like 3 years, it's a Godsend for my acne. I have the most beautiful skin now, and cannot go off of it, cystic acne is the most depressing thing I have ever gone through.
  12. I have been on Yasmin, it works because our acne is hormonal. Coming off is hell. Two months and bam. I still think the BC is way less harmful than accutane so I have no choice but to stay on it, crystal freakin clear skin! Just expect if you go off Diane or Yasmin, the acne will come back like insane. I figure I'll go off if I ever have a kid and my hormones would change if I get pregnant anyways, hopefully for hte better. We have too much testosterone and no other way to help that that I
  13. Yasmin saved me. No more acne. It's just that now I can never go off. I went off for two months thinking I was cured and all hell broke lose. 5 cysts at once. went right back on to clear it up. Thank God for Yasmin.
  14. I went on Yasmin after having CYSTIC ACNE< it was horrible. THE ONLY THING THAT WORKED FOR ME. THe derms were like lets try this antibiotic, lets try Prednisone? Whatever they tried, nothing worked. Yasmin cleared everything up in 2 weeks. IT was a miracle for ME.
  15. I would get a cortisone shot from a dermatologist. I had quite a few big ones, they took like a month to go away and can leave a bad scar cause they got too large. They suck!
