    I have been on Yasmine for 2 years. I did not take any weight with this pill and my periods are finally regulated! Also helped my skin! I suffer from migrains since I was 6 years old and this pill did not increase them. I was also on anxiety medication when I started this contraceptive and I did not get depressive one bit, even when I stopped my anxiety meds. I love yasmine!

    I would advise any young woman NOT to take this pill. I almost died taking it with the uncommon side effects.

    Im 32 and feel that after using this pill for over 18months I feel compelled to warn others away from using it. on the plus side i didnt get pregnant. I took the pill for about 8 months and the changes to mood were so subtle I barely noticed them happening. As time wore on I became lethargic, depressed, tired, moody and suffered the most hurrendous IBS with cramping so bad I would break into a ... Show Full Comment

    I love Yasmin 28 it worked wonders for me, it regulated my periods, I didn't gain weight, no moodiness, no side effects what so ever, and it did wonders on my skin gave me a much more youthful complexion. I did try YAZ and it was completely different for me I did have side effects and went back to Yasmin 28.

    I was on this birth control and started feeling very depressed, to the point of getting angry at myself. I was absolutely overwhelmed with life, cried for no reason. My doctor put me on a different pill and all my sysmptoms cleared until I started developing cysts. He switched me back to this one again, because we both could not remember why I went off of it. After just one month of taking this I ... Show Full Comment
