ConsCAN HAVE SOME SLIGHT SIDE AFFECTS

I had never heard of Yasmin until I dropped by my doctors to tell him I needed a new pill yet again!

Yasmin is a combined oral contraceptive. It contains drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol. Drosperinone is a fairly new progestogen, and is the closest to the natural female progesterone hormone. It also functions as an anti-androgen and when combined with ethinyl estradiol (the "oestrogen"...

“Not for eczema sufferers”

published 28/07/2008

ProNo mood swings!

ConsEczema, migraine, weight gain

I switched to Yasmin from the mini-pill Cerazette because I couldn't cope with the bleeds every 14 days and terrible mood swings. I had initially been given Cerazette because I have a migraine history and the progesterone only mini-pills don't aggravate the problem, however due to the reasons...

I have tried lots of pills in the past and Yasmin is by the far the best that I have used. Microgynon was horrendous - on it for about a year - mood swings got worse and worse - by the end I was crying all the time for no reason, easily stressed out, worried, anxious, panicky and angry. Dianette...

I'm 17 years old and I've currently been on Yasmin for just over a month. This is the first pill that I've taken, so although the initial worry, I'm slowly getting more comfortable with it. Yasmin is at least 99% effective, which of course shows that if you take the tablets correctly, you are...

ConsPsychotic mood swings, increased appetite

I was only on this pill for 1 month after changing from Microgynon (see other review, made me moody). I changed onto Yasmin about 2 months ago following recommendations from a couple of friends. Yasmin was no better though and I was only on it for a month as, whether down to the moodiness caused...

ConsMood swings, headaches and thats just for starters

I was prescribed Yasmin due to its low strength and the fact that the levogestronel that is used in lots of other pills was making me feel nauseous and at times I was sick. However I swear Yasmin is sending me crackers. I'm normally an extremely rational person but after taking this pill for just...
