Yasmin / Yaz????

Dokter
Ek wil graag sekerheid kry oor die verskil tussen Yasmin en Yaz. Ek is al n geruime tyd op Yasmin - was tevrede. Dokter het my nou op Yaz gesit want sy se Yasmin gaan een van die dae van die mark af gaan en Yaz is Yasmin se verbetering. As ek egter deur die boekie blaai is dit asof Yaz meer newe effekte het. Is dit raadsaam om te verander? Is die 2 pille maar dieselfde? Ons vrouens se grootste probleem is altyd ons bekommernis om ekstra gewig op te tel. Sal dit gebeur met die oorname? Ek is reeds insulien weerstandig en sukkel klaar. Wil nie nog ekstra spanning oor dit ook he nie. Sal bly wees as ek berusting kan kry. Groete

The primary difference between Yaz and Yasmin is that Yaz contains 24 active pills and 4 inactive pills, which have no active ingredients. Most birth control pills (including Yasmin) have 21 active pills and 7 inactive pills. Having fewer inactive pills seems to decrease some of the bothersome symptoms that occur just before and during your period.
