I was on this pill for just over 5 years and LOVED it! I had no issues with it from the start - regular five day cramp free periods during my pill free week and clearer skin after about three months. It did make me slightly more anxious and aggressive but the positive side effects outweighed these issues. I only came off it because I had a migraine with aura.

I was on yasmin for six months after which I decided to stop taking it. Within one month I had to change all my wardrobe due to bloating, it affected my mental health deeply, the only positive outcome was that while I was on the pill my skin cleared up entirely. I had no pimples, no blackheads, oil was under control, bare in mind I have severe acne.

My doctor suggested that I star using Yasmin because of hormonal imbalances and having the markers of POS. In the begging it felt amazing! I had no more black thick hair in unwanted places (nipples, chin, back) and I lost weight. For the first few months it felt like my hormonal system could finally “take a breath”. Three years later, my libido was nonexistent, I had almost no vaginal discharge (even after an orgasm), and had so severe UTIs that that had to see a specialist, do a biopsy and go through multiple rounds of treatment.
