Experience

Hands down, this is one of the worst contraceptive pills I’ve been on. I’ve struggled with hormonal acne in my 20s and having tried all the lotions and potions, eventually gave up and thought I would try the pill, even though I have been on combined pills before and found they haven’t suited me, the nurse told me Yasmin was generally really good for skin, so I thought I’d give it a go. 3 weeks in, no changes to my skin, but very severe and intense anxiety to the point where I constantly felt on the verge of a panic attack, also felt dizzy, very nauseous, and my vision was going blurry. It may suit others but I had to stop taking it because of the dark thoughts it was making me have.
