Experience

I was switched from dianete to Yasmin as I had been on dianete for 2 years. I noticed almost immediately my sex drive was basically non existent. I know this can happen and can take a few months for it to level out. I tried it for 6 months and it hasn’t come back. I also felt that my periods have been a lot heavier and painful and I have increased bloating in general. I have now stopped Yasmin and I am about to try a different combined pill.
