I've been on Yazmin for a year and a half and then I moved to the US and the doctor prescribed to me this birth control because the Yazmin had a side effect of causing cysts. I got the BCP for my acne and the one I used prior is fantastic cleared up the trouble spots of my face, as well as my back and shoulders. I'm just wondering how other people thought the pill affected acne (if at all). Also, I've been trying to drop 20-25 lbs for a few months now and I'm worried this is going to make me gain and completely revert my process. Did any of you experience weight gain or was it smooth sailing?
Everyone reacts differently on the different Birth control I know of several people taking this just for the acne control. And it does not appear that they are gaining any weight But everyone is different the best you can do is try it for a few months and see how it works for you If there are any problems let the doctor know and try another is the best you can do. Best of luck hope it works out for you.
