I am interested in going on yaz to treat hair loss and acne. Although it has anti androgen qualities I like, I am kinda scared about the blood clotting stories I have read in my research. Does anyone have any advice? Anyone out there who would recommend this BC?
I am currently on Yaz, and I had the same worries as you. But after much research (of actual medical journals), I discovered that Yaz does not have a statistically significant higher incident of blood clots than any other birth control. My doctor also agreed with my research. I am 27, and I have suffered from hormonal acne around my chin/mouth area for the last 10 years. It was a constant 1-2 zits at all times. I have tried every topical prescription, every over the counter product, and many brands of birth control. Absolutely nothing worked until Yaz. I went on Yaz about 9 months ago and the breakouts slowly started happening less often. For the last 3 months I have not had one single bump! So it took about 6 months to completely work, but that is expected since it is changing your natural hormonal rythmn. Yaz is the only pill that has 0 androgen, which is the testosterone hormone that causes hormonal acne. I absolutely highly recommend that you give it a try.
