Experience

Yasmin is honestly the best contraception for myself, I used to get terrible mood swings on a previous combined pill and also really bad migraines too. Once I changed to Yasmin, I didnt change back. The down side to this is that you cannot get this pill free on the NHS anymore, but I often buy 6 months worth from Lloyd’s Pharmacy for £40 – I will happily continue to pay for this contraception as I have not experienced any negative side effects.
