Yasmin and weight loss

Common Questions and Answers about Yasmin and weight loss


Avatar f tn I have had a weight problem all my life, and had gastric bypass in 2005 and lost over 130 pounds, so have not noticed weight as an issue for me, because I ahve other issues weight-wise and it would be hard to know if Yasmin was affecting my weight. I know when I have a period I can gain up to 10 pounds of water weight when that happens. My doc says there is no discernible reason for me to stop taking them way up until and into menopause.
Avatar f tn ( Ive had rapid weight loss, almost complete loss of appetite, extreme hot flashes and chills, severe fatigue, and above all.... TERRIBLE MOOD SWINGS :( My poor husband :( Ive been such a ***** to him... Anybody know of anything I could try or seek out to help me with this apparently lengthy transition???
Avatar f tn I didn't experience any hair loss, and I didn't notice weight gain, but I've now been off of it for almost a month, and I have noticed some weight loss, even though I have been eating normally, so maybe I did gain some weight??? Another thing about Yasmin, and birth control in general,for anyone who reads this, DO NOT smoke! I'm only 20 years old, and as a result of smoking on the pill(only about 5-7 cigs a day) I recently found out I have a blood clot in my lungs (pulmonary embolism.
Avatar n tn Hun, Get a different doc, you know, they are just ppl, and, as ppl, some are *sses, and some are not, Please have them do thyroid check!! Thyroid problems will cause depression, weight gain (or loss) as well as HAIR LOSS, i had a circular patch oh top of my head, and doc decided to check my thyroid, now i on synthroid, and hair grew back, emotions under control..
Avatar n tn - anxiety, panic attacks, heart palpitations and fluttering - depression - excessive weight gain - hair loss *I already have a prob. with depression, anxiety and panic attacks, so I am currently on medication. (Will be weaned off if not good during the pregnancy - just wanted you to know I am thinking it all through:) *It is one thing to gain maybe 5 lbs. or to gain weight when pregnant. I have been pregnant before and understand weight gain comes with this.
Avatar f tn ( . And if someone lost weight, what did they do exactly? some kind of hormone balance pill?
Avatar f tn The only thing I can link the burning throat, scalp and hair loss and Menstrual Migraines to is that in March 2007, my PCP changed my Oral Contraceptive from Yasmin (been on for years with no problem) to Yaz. I don't know why, but she insisted. A few weeks later my hair began to fall out, I began to cry uncontrollably and have temper outbursts. I had horrible cramps and a very heavy period, both of which I have never had. I called PCP and have her change me back to Yasmin.
Avatar n tn I started to notice weight gain in my waistline so i joined weight watchers.I was a member of weight watchers before and was able to loose weight in the first weeks I would loose up to 10 pounds.This time I lost about 3 then the next week i would gain 5.I got frustrated and quit. Now I have gained 11 lbs. and i don't even have the energy to walk on my treadmill for 10 minutes and have no desire to do anything .Why is there no special diet to follow or help for women going through this?
Avatar f tn After leaving that job and moving my health has improved.Including being able to loose weight ( however I regained most of it due to steroid treatments, which did not help) However I continue to have debilitating migraines- both cluster and a crippling blinding pain that can cause me to black out type.
Avatar n tn My BF didn't know it was the Depo making me fat, so while I was on depo provera I starved myself on strict diets, exercised like crazy,Went to a hollywood weight loss doc, took HCG weight loss shots and prescription weight loss pills, even cut out fats, lowered my calories to 500 a day, and GAINED WEIGHT! My GYN told me the Depo was making me fat. Told me to to stop it ASAP and stop eating any white foods(no sugar,potatoes,bread, and esp.
Avatar n tn I am also having some extreme fatigue issues, what appeared as a case of gout on my big toe, hair loss, digestive discomfort, and headaches. I am quite tall and slender, and have healthful eating habits, but find that I am ravenous within an hour of a hearty meal. I far out-eat my companions with no apparent weight gain. I am a good student at a prestigious university, but am having some trouble with focus and clear thinking.
Avatar n tn It's not funny but I'm so tired and just can't get pregnant due to work rules (military deployment) so I need some relief and some weight loss!!!!
1344197 tn?1392822771 Compounded Bioidentical Hormones have received a great deal of coverage in news, on talk shows, and in magazines over the past several years. Claims of weight loss, increasing energy, improve mood, are safer, and many others have been made. Hopefully this article can help you answer questions and dismiss many of the myths surrounding this highly published, highly marketed topic.
Avatar f tn During this time I was on and off it as it gave me alot of symptoms which included being very emotional, weight gain, low libido and more. These symptoms didn't exist when I started Yasmin, not until probably 6 months in, is when I started noticing that my body wasn't liking it. So I stopped it completely last year around August.
Avatar f tn If you are not already using an anti-androgen pill switch to Diane35 or Yasmin which provide birth control and clear acne. Avoid progestogen only mini-pills and the Depo shot as these can make acne worse.
990091 tn?1249200314 07, with symptoms of severe muscle pain/cramps, fatigue, memory loss, black outs, severe swelling and weight gain (40 lbs.), and excessive body hair growth, all within the span of a month and a half.
Avatar n tn I'm finally realizing that in addition to the weight gain, the hair thinning and acne has become unbearable for me. Although mentally, Effexor has helped me tremendously, I have slowly fallen apart physically over the years (approx 9!!!) I would LOVE to hear if the people who have stopped using Effexor have regained their hair thickness.... Has the acne cleared up? Have you re-lost the weight? Also, what medication (if any) did you switch to, and are you happy with it?
Avatar f tn I gain weight very easily usually and struggle to maintain it off, but Yasmin never caused any problems in this respect, I'd say on the contrary. Spironolactone which is used to treat hirsutism or hair loss is a diuretic, and therefore it will actually help you not to retain water (I have this problem). These are the most common approaches and none of these will lead to weight gain.
363243 tn?1331037450 I have also reduced my caloric intake to nearly half what it used to be and with no weight loss at all. IT *****. I was also diagnosed Vitamin D deficient which I know is linked to insuline resistance and PCOS. I am getting ready to go to another blood test to confirm the Hashimotos. After which they are going to scan my thyroid for a node.
Avatar n tn I had the same symptoms as you. Hashi's with hypo and all those wonderful confusing hyper-type symptoms. Are you on any other meds? I was taking Yasmin and it was actually causing the "hyper" symptoms. You might also be on too high a dose of levothyroxine. Definitely get re-tested.
Avatar n tn If you have pcos, and now seem to be having the symptoms related to it I suggest you speak with your doctor and have him maybe put you on Metformin and birth control. The metformin will help with weight loss, reduce the symptoms of pcos and in time help improve your cycles. It will also ease the pain. The birth control will help you have a normal 28 day cycle each month. In time it will stop abnormal bleeding and lessen the cramps you have during that time of the month.
704655 tn?1228689306 I have also joined a weight loss program in California that incorporates chromium picolinate and vitamin b12 to aid in the weight loss process, along with a lean protein, minimal carb and minimal fruit diet. I lost 9 1/2 pounds my first 2 weeks. I would suggest Yasmin and Vaniqa(prescription cream to slow the hair growth). Much success to you, young lady. I am so glad that you were diagnosed so early on. God Bless!

5121963 tn?1363908857 Hello! I had endometriosis, cysts, tumor and blood thickening on my right ovary and and it was removed during laparoscopy 8 years ago. I had smaller problems with my left ovary, so after the lap and in the next 5 years I was on YASMIN pills for stopping the endo from growing. After these 5 years I had a punctuation done, because one of the cysts became bigger and after that I was on ZOLADEX shots for six months (in a condition of menopause - awful side effects!!!).
503727 tn?1210442710 As soon as I get into a place I get so dizzy and my vision is all messed up. I get so hot and sweaty and my heart races. I want my life back. I still dont believe that its just anxiety causing all of this. I feel like I have something else wrong that the doctors cant find even though i have had bloodwork, mri, ekg, and they were all normal. I started taking .25mg of xanax once a day. still dont feel any better yet. So if anybody has any help please give it to me.
Avatar n tn Just making me extremely exhausted. I am on YASMIN birth control and have been since i was 13 (for my periods and skin) This is making me extremely stressed and depressed, i don't want to do anything, its taking over my life i am even unable to work. I JUST WANT TO BE FIXED!! My mum thinks it could have something to do with stress as i have just got out of the 4 year relationship (very messy ending).
Avatar n tn And my doctor is at a loss and dosent know what to do. I can tell you this I dont have cats and live a crazy life so I dont think its any of that. So cat lovers your safe. Keep the litter box clean and hug your kittys.
Avatar f tn I am just so confused as to not having enough answers and solutions to this problem and feel helpless and a loss of hope. Honestly, is the pill the only solution or treatment lets say, to treat pcos? and if so is it really safe? isnt there any other way to treat it and lessen the symptoms without it? Are all women with pcos on the pill and are they considering to stay on it for as long as they need to? I would appreciate some answers and experiences.. thanks.
Avatar f tn Therefore there is a lot you can you with diet, exercise, weight loss to improve your condition. If you are not obese and do not have any of the glucose intolerance issues then it is more difficult because weight loss will obviously not help.
