... effective in preventing pregnancy. Ive been on it for a year now, and have had no problems yet. And yes my acne has greatly improved. I use to be on ortho lo and then solia but then the main reason i switched to yasmin was to lose some weight...or well to not gain anymore. ... (7 replies)

NuvoRing???
Sep 24, 2006
... I really hated Alesse too. I was on it a few years ago and it made me so depressed and anxious. Also, I had trouble sleeping, and I just cried at EVERYTHING! I don't know if this is the type of trouble that you have been experiencing, but if so, I sympathize. The NuvaRing is a lower dose of hormones - specifically of estrogen. It is also a very different progestin, and... (4 replies)

... Did you think about trying the microgestin instead of junel? It is a different generic so it probably has the same lower copay. If it works it will save you some cash, if it doesnt, then i guess you will have to pay more for the loestrin. Different pharmacies stock different generic companies, so you might be able to find it at a different pharmacy. (3 replies)
... t only started with the Junel. I had PMS all month long. Bloated all month long. I started getting oily skin and huge zits all over my chin. I have never had acne problems my entire life, but all of a sudden I was covered with them. Most days I just felt like I wanted to crawl out of my skin. ... (3 replies)
... And I am not all that optimistic that it'll help with acne or mood swings.... Ugh! ... (45 replies)
... Hi everyone! I guess I should start with a little bit of background info, regarding my experiences with birth control. I am 26 years old and suffer from PMDD, to the extent that I am on Lexapro for the emotional symptoms. My cramps are horrible, my flow is heavy for at least seven days per cycle (which is typically around 21 days, but still varies). I've had all kinds of... (45 replies)
... really really really cleared up my acne and I only have a 2 day period. So it's absolutely wonderful but that's up to you. ... (14 replies)
The Pill...?
Jan 17, 2006
... Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo was probably the worst pill I have ever taken. i think i lasted two months on it - it made me constantly nauseous (to the point where i couldnt even get out of bed sometimes) and it was probably the moodiest I have ever been. My skin broke out too which really sucked because its always advertised for its anti-acne effects too. im on yasmin now and its... (6 replies)
... I understand how you feel. I get ALOT of side effects too. It is so fustratrating. Some people get less cramps and lighter periods, better acne. BC is also supposed to help prevent endo. With me my cramps get worse, I get depressed, EXTREMELY moody, decreased sex drive, nausea, and acheyness in my legs. With me the possitves are hardley no headaches, lighter periods and... (8 replies)
... ve tried the patch and seasonel but I can't take hormonal birth control because I have ADD and Anxiety and the BC makes it worse. The best thing I tried was the nuvaring with a steady stream of hormonal release and it worked great but it also gave me bad hormonal headaches every once in a while, acne and wt gain. ...

... I did, to the point I had to stop using NuvaRing. I also had the acne issue, my skin has always been bad but was coming under control a bit, but intensified with Nuva Ring. ... (6 replies)
... You need to give birth control time. Almost every health care provider will tell you that you need to allow at least 3 months of use for any birth control for the side effects to go away. Two days certainly isn't enough time for your body to adjust to the hormones. No birth control is going to be without some initial problem. (1 replies)
... I am having so many problems with birth control. I can't believe I ever got back on it. I put in the Nuvaring 2 days ago and my face, back, chest has totally broken out. I mean who wants to have sex when their body has acne on it, not sexy. ... (1 replies)
... I've been using the NuvaRing for over 2 months and I LOVE it!! My second period was more like breakthrough bleeding than an actual period, it was so light. ... (9 replies)
Will it go away?
May 8, 2005
... The breaking out should go away, too. Ortho TriCyclen is approved for the treatment of acne, and the Lo brand should be no different. (1 replies)
... I havent read anything about the Nuvaring and acne, but I've read about Ortho-Evra helping with acne. It's probably a good idea to ask your doctor when you go to get a prescription. They'll be able to look at the form of progestin in each method and decide which one will be better to reduce your acne. (8 replies)
Birth Control?
Dec 21, 2004
... There are other benefits besides the fact that it can help prevent pregnancy. It can reduce PMS symptoms, reduce acne and breakouts, make your periods lighter and shorter and more regular, and it's been reported that it may even reduce your risk of ovarian cancer. ... (2 replies)
