I've been taking Yasmin for about 5 years. Mostly, I love it because my periods before it were AWFUL. I was at least always regular, but very heavy & crampy! I do get headaches (not migraines) fairly often, but not sure that can be attributed to the Yasmin.
I've been reading HORROR stories on the net about people w/awful symptoms when taking Yasmin, and some about what people are going through since STOPPING the Yasmin. I'm just starting day 3 without it, and haven't noticed anything yet personally. Just wondering if any of you have taken Yasmin, and what your experience was like. Thanks in advance! I think I just need to quit reading so much!
I honestly can't say much good about it. The only nice thing was that the hormones in it were so high that my AF was light and only lasted about 3 days. The problem is that I had NO sex drive and when I quit using it, it took us a year TTC to get Ben. I know fertility wasn't the issue because I have 7 losses.
well, i'm the total opposite! i've been on yasmin since i was about 14 due to irregularity and horrible cramps. it did wonders for me and i was always wanting to have sex, once i started having sex which was right before i turned 21. my periods were normal. i got off in september of last year and i was fine off of them and got pregnant in no time. yasmin was the only pill that would help me and not put me into depression.
I've been on 3 types of BCP and Yasmin was definitely my favorite! I was first on Ortho, which caused a LOT of weight gain and I switched to ortho-lo and it helped some, but I was still getting migranes (from the amount of hormones) Then I switched the Yasmin and wasn't on it very long, but didn't see any of the problems I had with ortho. With all of them I had very little sex drive, migraines, but a very light period, completely regular cycles and right when I got off Yasmin to being TTC, my cycles were exactly as regular as they were on the pill. We got pregnant 3rd cycle no problems!
