    I have been taking yasmin for two months. I just realized it was more than likely the reason for my severe mood swings, breast tenderness, anxiety and heart palpatations. It did clear up my skin and I did not get pregnant, but I cannot handle the side effects.

    I have been taking Yasmin for 5 years. I started taking for heavy periods. I am not taking it anymore. Bad headaches, anxiety, mood swings contact lenses bother me and just feeling awful. I don't know what will happen, as far as the heavy bleeding, if it will return.

    My PCP switched me to this after sudden on-set of sever PMS with Zovia (extreme erratic rages and depression). Never experienced PMS before, but as I am approaching 40 and had a baby 3 yrs ago everything is changing!!! This BCP made the mood swings worse, instead of 3-4 days on the previous pill now it is a couple weeks(3rd and 4th weeks of the pills). Yesterday it was like someone flipped an emo ...

    I was only on Yasmin for one month, 1 week and at the end of my first pack I got heart palpatations and night sweats while on the reminder pills. I blew it off but stopped the medication after the 5th day of the second pack because I again had the heart palpatations, sweats and extreme indigestion and I finally 'blacked out' in a crowded room and thus I no longer take Yasmin. Doctor put me ... Show Full Comment

    I switched to Yasmin after taking Mircette because Mircette was not covered by my health insurance. I immediately began to experience a very heavy vaginal discharge for which my doctor could not find an explanation. I requested another pill after approx. 6 months, and that did the trick. My doctor did not suggest it - that was me grasping at straws to end a side effect that I wish my doctor had ... Show Full Comment
