I am 39 and we are pretty certain I am in (peri)menopause already, which totally shocked me.

In Jan./Feb. my skin GLOWED. I mean, I had that peaches and cream porcelain "English" skin. My husband and I were stunned. I've never had bad skin, but not great either.

Then, in March, I crashed. I look like I have small pox for God's sake, and my skin is so painful and horrific looking I am embarassed to leave the house. I have recently learned that this can be one of the many signs of menopause (I have many more as well).

So, my OB/gyn gave me these Yaz sample packs. He said it would "even out my hormones" and relieve symptoms.

I am a little nervous now that I am reading they are so "new". I was thrilled however, to hear they clear up acne, because I have never experienced anything like this before and I just can't handle it anymore. I swore I would NEVER take any kinds of hormones for this, but I have a 3 & 6 year old and can't take care of them while going through these kinds of mood swings and depression! I have NEVER been a "depressed" person, and this is knocking me out. I always thought menopause would be great because you could have "free" sex, but no one ever told me that one of the symptoms is that you completely lose ALL interest and ALL sex drive!! What kind of sick joke is this?

I would love to hear of other people's experiences with this.

Anyone else prescribed for Menopause??

I started Yaz about a week and a half ago, and its my first time on any birth control. I haven't experienced any spotting, nausea, or mood changes...but I have begun to break out pretty bad on my face (chin area mostly). I have always had clear skin, never more than 3 blimishes at a time at least, and usually would only break out around my period. But this break out I'm going through right now is absolutly awful, I'm embaressed! i was wondering if anyone else has experienced this, or if anyone could tell me why! Hopefully someone can tell me it will clear up soon!! Thanks!
