Birth Control Message Board

Birth Control Board Index

So I have been on birth control for almost 3 months. The first 2 months I was on Yasmin. Yasmin was okay but I was getting pretty bad headaches and mood swings like the night before I was to get my period, so my doc decided that I should switch pills and try Yaz. I am at the end of my first month of Yaz (this is my last full week of active pills) and I feel worse than I did when I was on Yasmin. I feel like everything makes me want to try. Definitely overly emotional. I tend to be a fairly emotional person, but things this month have made me want to cry that never would have before.

I have an appointment with my doc on Tuesday to talk about switching pills. He knows that I would like to switch to Low Ogestrel 28/Lo Ovral 28. I was on this pill back about 3 years ago for about 6 months and remember having no problem at all. No mood swings, no bloating, no breakthrough bleeding, etc. I'm hoping that it will be the same this time around, presuming my doc is okay with the switch.

Has anyone else been on Low Ogestrel 28/Lo Ovral 28? If so, what has been your experience with it? I know that it has been out for a while, which I think can definitely be a good thing sometimes.

Thanks for your help,
You're welcome, Liz, and glad to hear that you're supplementing with these things, it's so important, especially when you're on the pill. Every woman is different in her reaction to a given pill, though. Usually, but not always, the B complex will help with the mood stuff. I've just read so much bad things on this board about Yaz and Yasmin, it's ridiculous. I would never even consider those two if I went back on the pill. Regarding the Lo Ovral, I was on it a long time ago when I was in my teens (I'm 37 now). Unfortunately, I don't remember if I liked it or not, though, since it was so long ago, sorry. I was on it for a while, though, so maybe I liked it? Maybe someone else will come along to tell you about a more recent experience they had with it. Anyway, I do agree that the fact that it's been out for a while is a comfort. I just don't think that they do enough clinical studies with these new pills nowadays, and that they're too quick to throw them out on the market to make money. Good luck to you. :)
