I used Yasmin for 8 months, lost 8kg and my appetite. Until getting off the pill I didn’t realise that I had felt nauseous other than vomiting every week or two. I had a little brain fog but other than those I didn’t find any other side effects and I really liked it.

I was so scared to start birth control because I was scared of gaining weight but this is honestly perfect. Only side effect is occasional irregular periods but like that’s about it. 10/10 recommend!!

First one I have used and still on it. I like it. Got it prescribed to reduce hormonal acne. Went on it at the same time as a quite heavy antibiotic cure, which made me quite nauseous, but other than that it has been pretty good. Struggled a bit with anxiety, which I haven’t prior to starting the pill, but that got better after a few months.
