I have been on Yasmin since 2016, throughout this time I have suffered with regular migraines, I had tried to changed pills during this time but they affected me awfully, so I went back on to Yasmin. I back-to-back my pills in an attempt to have no periods (for medical reasons, GP recommended this), however Yasmin has always given me breakthrough bleeding, at this point I have to break as its the only way to stop the breakthrough bleeding, but I only allow a 3 day break which is just enough. Yasmin has cleared up my skin beautifully, as someone who’s always suffered with acne, this is why I keep going back to it (and face monthly migraines). I have gained some weight during this time, however I have also gotten married and comfortable! I am at the end of my tether with migraines now, and will be looking to change pills soon!
