This pill isn’t the one for me unfortunately. I started using Yasmin after my gynaecologist recommended it to me after they found a cyst on my right ovary. I wasn’t on any birth control after a bad experience with the Ballerine IUD but I did want to start with birth control again.
Positive: the Yasmin did help and the cyst is gone.
Negative: a lot of spotting, starting in week 2, continuing into a period and then again spotting. I’m very moody anxious and upset all the time. Which is very unlike me :( breast are very sore and enlarged. My libido is gone, it does not exist anymore. I also became very very bloated around my stomach area and got a puffy face and swollen ankles.
Two days ago I’ve stopped using it and I can’t wait to get back to feeling like myself again.
