Experience

I used Yasmin during my teen years as i had very heavy/ painful periods. By the time I was in my twenties i was pretty sure i was just a angry person. I was quick to anger, grumpy, easily frustrated etc. I went of the pill in my twenties for 2 years and was a much happier person. Didnt work out that it was the pill that made me angry till i got into a serious relationship, went back on the pill and within 3 weeks i was back to a horribly angry person.
