Yaz/Yasmin

So there have been a slew of commercials on lately about serious, adverse side effects with the BCP's Yaz and I believe it mentioned Yasmin on a side note? I know that a lot of commercials are BS, but what about this?

I've been on Yasmin for nearly four years (ovarian cysts) and have had zero problems with it. From what I understand, Yaz is one of those super pills for PMDD. Am I wrong that the commercials make a link between this and Yasmin? I tried googling, but I just really don't understand the issues- it seems like the side effects mentioned go along with every BCP?

I just am paranoid about the pill hurting me in the long run, I suppose.
Thanks!

These "ads" are just them trying to get together a class action suit to get money from the company.

I was on Yasmin for a very long time and had a whole slew of really bad problems. I know my experience is around the site somewhere so I won't go over it again. A few of the side effects were lots of hair loss, pretty severe depression/mood issues, "leg zaps" as I called them, etc.

After all of that I'm now back on it's little sister, Yaz. I might be crazy, but I flat out can't deal with my skin anymore and Yasmin was the ONLY thing that cleared it up. I wouldn't be on anything at all if I could avoid it because in my opinion NONE of them are good for you. Hormonese are just not something to mess with.

I think everyone is going to have different experiences with different BCPs. I wouldn't view the commercials as anything but fearmongering by the law firms that want money.

I think there are serious side effects with every pill, for a small percentage of the population, and a previous ad failed to mention that so they had to run a "correction" ad. I think usually they mean blood clots, which are rare, but do happen (I know two people who had them, but both had them with the first pill they took within the first few months).

The only actual health difference between yaz/yasmin and other bcps is that it can raise your potassium levels because of its formulation. All hormonal bc can cause increased risk for stroke and blood clots.

All those commercials I see are referring to the risk of blood clots, which everyone should know if they take bcps. I don't think there is any extra risk of that with yaz/yasmin.

Yay this is what I was hoping it was and I figured as much but I hate those commercials! But I figured if there were serious risks on it, my doctor would've taken me off by now. I've never tried any other BCP and don't want to. This one has worked perfectly for me so far so why mess with what works, if I can help it..

Thanks guys

agree with everyone, and these two posts in particular. there is no predicting how each individual will react to any drugs, and even more so with hormones.

Yeah I really don't need your advice for BC. Especially considering my BC costs over half your monthly allowance.

Hey really good question-

My doctor switched me from Seasonale to Yaz a couple months ago, because Yaz is supposed to be the drug of choice for PMDD. When I saw the commercials I wondered the same thing!

LOL- at the end of the day I figured I was better off taking it and risking my own life- because the alternative would be PMDD so bad other peoples live were in danger!!! The way I see it is that Yaz has saved my husbands & father-in-laws life numerous times; and saved me from having to find out if PMDD can be used as an insanity defense!

Thanks for the info- good to know no has to die.....

Uhm if you are into killing people, I'm not so sure that's just PMS.

Oh yeah I know, meant to say that but mistyped. But still, it's not like a "OMG I'm going to go kill everyone now" type thing, is it?

It *can* be...not everyone will have the same symptoms, obviously. And, maybe not everyone. I'm sure it's probably worse with those you spend the most time with.

My mother is a physician and she told me to never go on Yaz/Yazmin. Even though everyone's body reacts differently, she told me that she had a lot of her patients come in with serious problems from this pill.

Just giving my 2 cents

^ I tried Yasmin and it caused me to put on weight and more worryingly, gave me the worst migraines and nausea on the first day of my pill break and then on day two of the new pack. I moved to a triphasic pill, which seems to mimic a natural cycle and lost the extra weight, my skin improved and i don't get migraines or nausea at all now.
