    This is my first month on Yazmin, and it is my LAST! It works fine, I don't have any physical problems, but it makes me SO moody!! I have gotten into countless big fights with my boyfriend over little things in just the past couple of weeks that I've been on Yazmin. I'm also constantly feeling depressed. It's not worth it for me! I used to be on Beyaz which was great, but it is no ... Show Full Comment

    I have been on Yasmin for almost four years and I love it. I asked my doctor to switch me to something that cost a little less so she put me on Sprintec and then Loestrin. It was horrible.

    I was at my lowest weight. 3-4 days light period. Excessive sex drive to the point my husband was upset. I had severe anxiety. Panic attacks. Gallbladder pain. Dry contacts. My doctor denied my anxiety was from the bcp. Tried several anti-anxiety, anti-depressants before realizing it was Yasmin and stopped them all. The unwarrented rage was awful. I have been off of Yasmin and on the Paraguard (no ... Show Full Comment

But so far I am losing the weight I gained from Tri-S. and my face is clearing up slowly but surely. The only side effect that has been bothering me is fatigue, for the past two weeks I have been extremely tired but I'm slowly starting to regain my energy. I hope I stay positive about this birt ...
