Experience

I’d been on Yasmin for nearly three years and it seemed to be working well. Very little side effects – or so I thought; at least the typical ones. I’ve been suffering from IBS for a long time and it had got worse in the last couple of years. Awful cramps, sudden need to use the toilet urgently, frequently up several times in the night with cramping. Did some research and one of Yasmin’s active ingredients is linked to IBS symptoms. Stopped taking it, and almost immediately my IBS improved. I would not recommend to anyone who suffers from IBS or similar conditions.
