I switched from implant to Yasmin, but experienced no change in all the horrible side effects I had from the implant: my body didnt respond to anything sexual even if I was turned on mentally, i gained 15 kilos of weight within only a few weeks without any change to my exercise or eating habits, horrible anger and mood swings, suddenly i had regular anxiety attacks and terrible acne that made me not want to go outside without a thick layer of makeup. Ive cried in the mirror countless times ever since, and the acne didnt go away until I got accutane prescribed.

I feel a lot more emotional when on the pill, I lost my period when I went off the pill for a year, I have been on the pill for a long time twice in my life, and I’ve always noticed a change in my emotions when I’m on it, I feel like I cry more easily over small things and I feel like meh a lot of times without reason. I feel nauseous a good bit of time, I really don’t think it’s great for women’s health... will be going off it soon and hope to find something more suitable for me!

I have liked nearly everything about this pill! My skin has been lovely, and very light periods with little to no pain. Overall my moods have been slightly lower, however I am not sure if this is necessarily linked to the pill. Only recently have I been experiencing breakthrough bleeding and I will be very upset having to change and start a new form of contraception!
