Oasis11- I use Yasmin and I love it too. It really cleared up my skin. I just want to add that IUD’s are also a form of low dose birth control.
For example Mirena, is a popular IUD that also provides very low levels of progesterone into the system.
A small plastic figure in the shape of the letter "T" is inserted in the uterus to prevent ovulation.
This form of birth control is effective for a period of five years. The disadvantage is that it can be costly as most insurance providers do not cover the costs of an IUD.
Rates for the insertion may vary, but most gynecologists charge $800 to $1,000 for the procedure.
But the good thing is that it lasts for five years and you don’t have to worry about taking a pill. So if you break down the costs for a period of five years, it results in $13 to $16 per month.
