Experience

I recently come off the pill in preparation or starting a family. I was on Yasmin for 15 years and 2 months after stopping it seems as though my periods are back to being regular already. I have never experienced any issues.

Experience after taking

I was slightly more emotional when I first stopped taking Yasmin, but returned to normal after a couple of weeks. My period pains are about the same as when I was on the pull.

Had a similar experience?
