Yasmin For acne?
Sep 1, 2006
Please Post experiences you have had with Using Yasmin? Did you notice a difference in your skin?? Did it help clear your skin or atleast make your breakouts less severe? Was there an initial breakout? How long did it take to notice a difference..... etc.... Post experiences please :)
I'm on my third month of Yasmin. Before I started Yasmin my derm put me on Augmentin ( antiobiotics ) and that had cleared me up pretty good until I started with yasmin. I have had horrible breakouts all along my jawline and down my neck. Now, I had the same type of persistent breakout with OTC so I think I'm just not doing well with BC. I prefer not to be on any BC but because I have started Accutane I need to be.
During the past 2 months I've also been very tired. But I don't know if that's been because of the Augmentin or Yasmin. I stopped taking Augmentin a week ago and I'm wondering if my energy is not slowly coming back....I'm not sure yet.
Anyway, I've heard a lot of people have had success with yasmin so it's worth a try.
Good luck!
Thanks for the replies... I just got off augmentin in the beg of august I was on it for like 3 months and it help but very very minimally soo my derm switched me to doxy and I am starting my 2nd month of doxy and before Yasmin I was on desogen and it is making me break out b/c this past week I was on my sugar pills and my face is clearing up sooo much but during the 3 weeks I was taking the hormones my face was a MESS!! So my derm suggested Yasmin he said its the best for acne so I started taking it tonight...soo I guess I will have to wait and see how it goes But I dunno if I should have high hopes since I just figured out it was the BC adding to all my acne so I have a feeling any BC pill will just do the same thing as the desogen did and Mircette....Right now all I keep telling myself is less then a month until I will be on accutane and if it was up to me I would stop BC too but now I can't do that since my derm has chosen for me to go on accutane... so I am trying to wait out this last month and praying I might see a slight improvement??? instead of a huge mess of breakouts that I have been seeing.... so I can have some relief before the accutane plunge...


**Anyone Else Feel free to post experiences the more the better**
Thanks:)

I'm on my second pack of Yasmin. My experiece has been good over all. As far as acne though, I haven't noticed much of a difference personally. I usually tend to have a small break-out during pms. Yasmin hasn't seemed to effect it for better, or for worse. We'll see if anything changes in the next month or so!
I just finished my second pack of yasmin today and as far as acne, it might be a little better, but it is nowhere near what I had wanted. I still get some cysts along my jawline and random pimples elsewhere. I guess I don't have as many, but right now for example, I have 2 small cysts on the right side of my jawline and 1 small pimple on the left side. Like I said, it's not horrible, but not great. I still have red marks from old breakouts also. Is there anyone who had to take yasmin for longer than 2 months before seeing great results or is this as good as it's gonna get for me? Also, I have heard of over the counter peels for red marks from old breakouts, what is the best kind and what kind of results should I expect? My face also gets really dry in the winter and I stopped using a moisterizer which seems to have helped the oil not be as bad. It always seems to be the worst (oil and breakouts) when I first start the new pack and then slowly gets better throughout the month. Usually my clearest time is during the sugar pills. Any advice on anything relating to this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
