Experience

My doctor suggested that I star using Yasmin because of hormonal imbalances and having the markers of POS. In the begging it felt amazing! I had no more black thick hair in unwanted places (nipples, chin, back) and I lost weight. For the first few months it felt like my hormonal system could finally “take a breath”. Three years later, my libido was nonexistent, I had almost no vaginal discharge (even after an orgasm), and had so severe UTIs that that had to see a specialist, do a biopsy and go through multiple rounds of treatment.
