Yaz and breakouts
Aug 9, 2008
I have been experiencing VERY bad breakouts that start in the first week of my pack every month. I had moderate acne before, hoping that Yaz would help clear my skin, but it has gotten MUCH worse. My skin stops breaking out after the first week, and is totally clear by the time I get my period, just in time for the breakouts to come back again. I just finished my first pack, I am considering switching however I do like all the other benefits. Has anyone experienced this? and does it ever stop? Should I give Yaz another month?

Reid,

I just went through what's going on with your skin. I'm now on my fifth moth of Yaz and it's been the turnaround point for me. My skin got SO BAD the first three months. I used to cry all the time-- I was getting cystic acne in places I hadn't had for months. (I'm 24, by the way.) But honestly you should just stick with it. the pain is worth it in the end: my skin is now 100% clear. I wake up every morning with no pain or irritation from oncoming pimples. I like to look in the mirror now, it's funny because I always run to the bathroom in the morning to see what has "developed" overnight... and now when I go theres NOTHING. It still surprises me every morning. Hope this helps
Hello girls,
I too experienced very bad acne breakouts while on Yaz. Omg, it was soo bad that I went into a depression for about 3months and tried to hide in my room for as long as possible. It sucked terribly and I had bad scars because of it as well. I'm going to be starting month 6 of YAZ and my skin still isn't fully clear. It's way better than it was in the beginning I must say, but not it's not where I'd want it to be. My scars have minimized though but I still break out with little pimples along my jawline and mouth area. I'm still really self-concious and hate looking at my self in the mirror. BUT, I heard that Spiro is good to treat acne so I'm going to start it next week along with YAZ so I'll let you guys know how that goes. I'm just praying that I dont go through another initial breakout again because I dont think my self-esteem could take it.. I also don't want to scare away my new hot boyfriend!!!!!
Hi. I would stick with Yaz. It has the same Spiro content as Yasmin and a lot of people hate Yasmin and do well with the Yaz. Yaz is considered a mini pill and the Yasmin really makes a lot of people feel crazy. The dosage of Spiro in a pill form is what clears cystic acne. Usually anything under 100mgs of Spiro doesn't help most people. I take 150 and Yaz, sometimes 200mgs.. It is amazing.I am on ths combo 9 months and crystal clear skin now. Under 100 wouldn't work for me. By the 5th month, you are completely clear

I recently switched over from YAZ to Yasmin and just by doing that my face seems a little better. BUT, yasmin makes me feel bloated and my appetite has seemingly to increase. What's the dosage of SPIRO in Yaz and Yasmin? I don't have cystic acne, I have little red and white bumps all along my jawline and the sides of my mouth. So would that mean that a lower dose would help? I'm still thinking of taking 100mgs just to be safe.
