Only negative for me is it does make me very emotional and I’m not usually an emotional person!

At first Yasmin was great and really cleared up my skin which I loved. However after 2 and a half years my mood had declined and I struggle with anxiety a lot more. Around the time of my pill break I get terrible headaches and nausea. When I start a new pack my anxiety increases massively and makes it hard to function. The worst side effect is I have no libido at all and I feel very flat.

I have been on this pill for many years, the main reason was problems with my skin. I was first on Dianette then changed to Yasmin. Since being on this pill I suffer with extreme headaches during my period. I did stop taking this pill last year for a procedure then started back on it after Christmas 2022, I have since gained lots of weight and my sex drive is nonexistent (poor husband) overall I do not recommend this pill.
