Experience

I loved being on the Yasmin combined pill as it cleared my skin up entirely after years of acne. I also had no other side effects. But after a few years I started to get migraines with aura and had to come off it. As soon as I did my bad skin came back and I’m now on long term antibiotics to keep painful Rosacea away.

Experience after taking

Periods returned to heavier ones and my mood was much more up and down than it had been. I’d forgotten how sad as often felt the week before my period
