Experience

Have been happy with this pill, initially went on it to improve my skin which it did well. Take 3 packets back to back then a break, no spotting experienced, periods like clockwork and lighter and shorter than before being on Yasmin. It has dampened sex drive somewhat and dulled my emotions. I get headaches at the end of my pill free week and for this reason GP has now decided I should change to progesterone only pill.
