WHAT IS BETTER..YASMIN OR LINESSA (CYCLESSA)..I AM GETTING DRY SKIN FROM USING YASMIN?
I have been on yasmin for 7 months now..my side effects are mild nausea in the early morning (which is not too bad, i can live with it). BUT i am getting dry skin while on it as well. before going on it my skin was normal but more oily on the forehead, i had clear skin on my cheeks but some acne on my forehead.... Asked by Tyree Bradfield 1 month ago.

I have been on yasmin for 7 months now..my side effects are mild nausea in the early morning (which is not too bad, i can live with it). BUT i am getting dry skin while on it as well. before going on it my skin was normal but more oily on the forehead, i had clear skin on my cheeks but some acne on my forehead. After taking it for a couple months my forehead cleared pretty well but my cheeks and lips are now drier. my doctor told me it is because yasmin allows for the least amount of oil production than any other birth control pill. So, she prescribed me Linessa (Cycless in US i think). She said it will allow for a bit more oil production so hopefully my lips stop chapping! I am on my period week now and my cheeks and lips feel sooooo smooth and not dry. While on yasmin pills i do as much as i can to not dry my skin, i even use cream face washes instead of foam. ALSO my skin is very sensitive so any moisturizers usually do SOMETHING bad to me. even when i use moisturizers my cheeks are still dry =(..SO should i switch from yasmin to cyclessa? does anyone have this problem of dry skin on yasmin or cyclessa (linessa)??? I am going to mexico in 4 weeks and i want my skin to be moist so it doesnt dry even more from the harsh sun!!!!! i dont want to peel but i dont want to start a new pill just yet in case i get other bad side effects and it ruins my trip =(..HELP!!! Answered by Diedre Lickley 1 month ago.

All I can tell you is my experience on Cyclessa (actually the generic called Velivet) for 5 months. I don't know if this is helpful at all to you, as everyone experiences different effects. GOOD: I've had no nausea, no cramps during the active pills, and very mildly sore breasts the week before my period. It keeps my skin pretty clear during most of the month, but when I get to the placebos I break out. My periods are slowly getting lighter with less severe cramps. Before I went on this pill I had to use ultra size tampons, and now I only need super. The hair on my legs, which used to grow so fast I needed to shave every day, no longer grows as much. I have noticed my nether regions smell better. I've had no problems at all with dry skin (except the first month I was on it I itched like crazy, but that problem hasn't come back at all). BAD: I gained 10 pounds when I went on it. During most of the month I feel pretty bloated. For at least one week during the month I feel depressed and cry a lot (this never happened to me before going on the pill). The only time I feel normal is on my period. I had some spotting the first month. Answered by Gaynelle Heinle 1 month ago.

extremely of your common face air purifier, i might use a face cleansing scrub. Neutrogena zits rigidity administration Scrub works super and leaves my skin extremely soft. while my face is dry i take advantage of sparkling and sparkling twin action Moisturizer in particular on my cheeks on condition that's what gets dry the main. i admire that moisturizer because of the fact it works ok and has a small volume of salicyclic acid in it so it prevents zits. desire this enables!

Answered by Joya Saracino 1 month ago.

As with all oral contraceptives..u have 2 options on when to start....1) First Day Start (which is the first day of your menstrual cycle or 2) Sunday Start (the Sunday after your menstrual cycle starts. I go to planned parenthood as well, and they advised me to do the Sunday start because it's easier to remember. I lucked out though, and actually had my cycle start on a Sunday! So for me, it wasn't hard to decide! Here's the link to Cyclessa's website though, where you can get further info if needed! Good luck! Answered by Lynne Flint 1 month ago.

Go with what your Doc says it is different for everyone. It is not going to hurt you to start it after your period is done...but your Doc should have said that for best results wait at least a full cycle before you stop using a condom your body has to get used to the drug (using a condom with BC is more effective if you don't want to get pregnant) Answered by Oralia Willims 1 month ago.

Cyclessa question?

I am on the bc pill, Cyclessa. I've been on it since about November of last year. The first couple of months I had all sorts of side effects including increased outbreaks, dizziness, a little nausea, and sore joints. They said that would be normal until my body got used to it. On month three all my side effects were gone except the dizziness on week three. I still get dizzy on week three. Not like feels like I'm drunk dizzy but rather distracting dizzy. Is this normal? Should I consider switching bc pills? Answered by Eugena Manfredini 1 month ago.

Definitely consider changing brands. There are literally dozens of different formulations out there. If it is a tri-cyclic drug (3 different colors of pills + placebo) try going on a mono-phasic drug (one pill for the entire 3 weeks). It could have something to do with the change in chemicals every week. Talk to your doc - bottom line is that if you're experiencing any discomfort for SEVEN months, it's time for a change. Don't take "NO" for an answer either! Be tough - it's YOUR body. Answered by Kathi Lesch 1 month ago.

Yes, those side effects lasting for that long are not normal! Look at the patch people are suing over it now due to side effects! Talk to your doc immediately Answered by Frankie Kinsinger 1 month ago.

maybe you are pregnant, i would check, i just went on the pill and they told me that you can still get pregnant on them, if that comes out negative then ya i would definitly go back to the doctor and ask them to put you on something that wont do that to you.

Protected by Cyclessa ?
So if i can start at anytime. Is the whole protected after 7 days valid? If I waited until the 14th (That's like 8 or 9 days after i started the pills) would i be protected even though i didnt start when i was on my period? Asked by Brook Kinter 1 month ago.

I started taking the birth control pill Cyclessa. The doctor said that If I started that night I'd be protected after one week. I took it last night and again tonight within 10 minutes of each other (12:06 last night at 11:58 tonight) But then I read somewhere that you are suppose to start it on a sunday before your period. My period isn't suppose to be here for another couple weeks or so.... So... my question is if its still going to work in a week. The doctor said it would but i just want to make sure since i read otherwise that i shoudl start when i have my period. Another question I ended up having an upset stomach and dirrera will it still work or do i need to start over the 7 days. --Thanks. Answered by Marissa Fane 1 month ago.

You should read the pamphlet that comes with your birth control. My pamphlet says that I should use a backup method of birth control if I've had diarrhea or if I've been vomiting. My birth control pill also says to start the Sunday AFTER my period starts, so I can't really relate to your pill exactly. Hope this helps. Answered by Freda Horney 1 month ago.

You can start birth control pills at any time during the month. Sunday is the preferred day only because the pill packets are set up so that it is easiest to remember in a week by week format. Keep taking those pills, pick a time that works best for you and take the pill as close to that time every day. What helps me remember is setting a daily phone alarm until you get used to the routine. With any birth control pills you can have upset stomach and diarrhea because your body is adjusting to the new hormones. You can have side effects for up to three months following the start of new pills, but if you continue to have problems you should talk to your doctor about trying a different pill or method of birth control. And yes, 7 days does the trick. If you are still worried or nervous, use a backup method such as condoms. Answered by Eve Mccurry 1 month ago.

Most birth controls say that, but I would go by my doctors advice. You can start your birth control at any time. If you are having upset stomach and diarrehia I would quit taking it and see your doctor, it could be an allergic reaction to the pill. Answered by Trinh Mershon 1 month ago.

I would talk to your doctor about switching brands if you keep having a problem until you find one you like. People have different reactions to different brands. I know the directions say that if you have diarrhea, then it can make it less effective, but it doesn't mean that it is. Also birth control isn't effective until a month after you are taking it. So if you continue to have that problem after the first month, I would talk to your doctor and use a backup method just to be safe. Answered by Barabara Ribron 1 month ago.


Cyclessa birth control questionnn?
okay so im on cyclessa and when i got it i started the next day which is a friday and now i here that u shud start it the day u start your period ? so im confused now...will they still work? shud i wait and start a new pack the next time i start my period? Asked by Aretha Areola 1 month ago.

the normal start is the 1st sunday after your period starts. if your period starts on a sunday, you start that day. oral contraceptives work regardless of when you start. the manufacturer says you're protected after you've taken 7 consecutive tablets but i tell everyone to use a back up method for the first month. your body should adjust but it may take 2 or 3 cycles. oral contraceptives are 99.9% effective in preventing ovulation if you don't skip any doses.

Unprotected Sex and Cyclessa?
I know unprotected sex while on the pill doesn't decrease your chances against STDS but how many days after taking Cyclessa will my chances of becoming pregnant drop? The doctor said 3 days but I haven't had my period yet and I have four more days until I haven't had it in a month. I always know when... Asked by Carey Sakurai 1 month ago.

I know unprotected sex while on the pill doesn't decrease your chances against STDS but how many days after taking Cyclessa will my chances of becoming pregnant drop? The doctor said 3 days but I haven't had my period yet and I have four more days until I haven't had it in a month. I always know when I'm gonna be start my period because I tend to eat a lot and then get emotional a few days leading up to it. I've been emotional throughout the whole time on the pill, I thought it was a side effect. Now that I'm on the 'sugar pill' stage, I haven't been feeling sick to my stomach and I can actually eat. I'm not sure if this whole time my body was rejecting the pill, causing me to vomit a few times...People who got pregnant on the pill-did this happen to you too? Answered by Louetta Whipps 1 month ago.

3 Days and than the protection really drops down. Answered by Brian Billeaudeau 1 month ago.
