Experience

After being on microgynon since my teens, I was basically turning into the Hulk every month!! After having my children and a contraception review they put me on Yasmin, in the last 5 years I’ve had no problems (apart from being a bit dry sometimes) in fact I noticed my moods were much better and that my periods are now very light.
