Are Yasmin pills available here?

Postby mediashark » Fri, 08 Sep 2006 10:58 pm

Hi, question in the title...

I'm currently on Yasmin birth control pills, and they seem to be the only ones that worked for me. They were prescribed by my doc. Which pharmacies carry them? Would like to know if I need to stock up.

Here's the manufactuer's site: http://www.yasmin.com/html/index.html

I dont know but I think they are only available thru gynae's.My proffesor gynae ,did recommend that to me but she also said that lots of her patients did lose weight while using Yasmin.But I have never tried it before.

Any one of u put on any weight while using Yasmin pills? I did put on weight while i was on other type of birth control pills. i put on 4 to 6kg within 15days. now i hav some phobia on birth control pills.

others said they lose some weight while using Yasmin. isst true? i would like to try, but need some advice 1st.

thanks.

in this case, r u tryin to say tat yasmin pills is different from other birth control pills? i read the yasmin website, it says tat the pill itself has some drugs to control the weight. is it true? if it is, i would love to giv a try. i really wan to shed off the excess fat / weight tat i put on recently (due to the birth control pills i took) haiz... :cry:

Honestly speaking I wouldnt know if the pill is totally for weight loss.But when I went for family planning with my gynae,I did ask her that usually people say we put on weight, but she told me Yasmin is good cos lots of her patients came back to her looking better.

But if you are looking for total weight loss like myself..i am taking herbalife shake, total control and B7H capsules, and super aboba.

well, i heard of a few cases tat patients has had either weight loss or no weight has actually gone up. none of the cases r negative (as in weight-gain).

currently i m on a Malay herb for weight loss. seems like the result is not bad. i din gain any weight yet i did shed off a little bit. this late september i will be attending Kick-Boxing class which is held in Sports Center. Heard that it is actually good for slimming as well. No choice. I hav to shed off all the fats.

back to the Yasmin pills, i think tonite im gonna visit a doctor for it. gonna giv it a try.

You can get from a pharmacy call "PharmaCare" in JB. About S$20 (they increased price). I always buy about 1/2-1 dozen back.

Diane35 is cheaper, S$15. But i put on weight when i was on Diane35, so i changed to Yasmin.

So far did not put on weight while on Yasmin. It's great! But honestly for complexion-wise, Diane35 better.

Hmmm... what should I do next? Cheekbone reduction maybe?

Yes, it's reliable and exactly as what you get in Singapore. Used to charge around $18, don't know why recently increased price. Still, it's quite a saving if you are looking at buying 1 dozen.

There's a Pharmacare quite near to the custom... erm.... well, i really don't know how to describe to you. it's near to the indian temple, a pink ulu ulu shopping centre. Maybe you can do a search on pharmacare and see if you can get the addresses of the different locations.

Thanks for the info. They always seem even more expensive lately the last time I saw them (outside singapore). Anyway I have not experienced any changes in weight whatsoever with them. But then everyone is different.
