... Thanks Coloradogirl. :) I wish you the best of luck...and let me know how you do if you try the Zovia. My gynocologist was kind of a pain when I told her I wanted to get off Yasmin and go back to Zovia. She told me it wouldn't make any difference...boy, was she wrong! Just goes to show, doctors don't always make the best choices for you so you have to stand up for yourself. (6 replies)
... Latayy, Yasmin scares me because i have heard of so many people that have had horrible initial breakouts that left them with scarring or never even went away. There's also a hairloss board on the internet where I have read horror stories about hair loss, mood swings and horrible acne. I would really like to try Spiro though because I don't hear as many horror stories about... (6 replies)

... Oops I forgot to mention I had really clear skin with zovia not so much on aviane but I use proactive so notive very little change. ... (2 replies)
... Also - OhMyFace - There are two forms of Demulen/Zovia - one has 35 (mg?) of estrogen and the other has 50. Which one do you use? (6 replies)
... I switched from Yasmin back to Zovia recently, because I was getting massive cysts on Yasmin and my face is 95% clear right now. I think that I had a bad reaction to the Spironolactone in Yasmin. Anyway, most pills, no matter which you choose will come with an initial breakout, so your best bet is to stick with the Zovia right now and then talk with your doctor about switching... (6 replies)

... Yasmin worked for a while, but then the cystic stuff got worse and I went back to Zovia. Now, I use the Zovia and wash my face with glycolic cleanser and moisturize with Kinerase. Those three products alone have saved my face. ... (73 replies)
... Yes, you will have to find the one that is right for you, because everyone is different, but I will say that in my experience, Yasmin made my skin much worse and Zovia cleared it up completely in 4 months. I get no cramps, but I do get a PMS attitude for a day or 2 ans a headache the first day of my period. ... (5 replies)
... n. The difference is that Yasmin combines drospirenone, a progestogen derived from spirolactone with ethinyl estradiol, which serves as the estrogenic component. Zovia does not contain drospirenone, which I believe I had a bad reaction to. ... (10 replies)
... You have to be patient! Don't stop it now! It could make the situation worse! My cousin that after 4 months, she hasn't had one pimple! But at first she got a couple! Just don't give up! (10 replies)
... yclen, that did very little. I'm hating this yasmin. Although my derm says it's one of the best out there, I have to diagree. I would like to learn more about Zovia if you have additional info. Thanks. ... (10 replies)

... So by women's clinic do you mean like a public health kind of place or Planned Parenthood? I looked up women's clinics on google and got a whole list of spots in this area. Did they actually know about spiro or did you have to enlighten them. (63 replies)
... I'm starting Spiro today. I saw a nurse practioner at a women's clinic yesterday and asked about hirsutism. She prescribed 200mg of spiro plus a birth control pill called Zovia. Not the Yasmin or the Diane others have mentioned, but I guess those contain some Spiro and it wouldn't be necessary for me to take both. I'm 40 and have had acne, grotesquely oily skin and...
