Experience

When I first started this contraceptive it worked great after having negative side effects from the Mirena coil, Yasmin reversed all of these and made my periods lighter, cleared up my skin and made me feel better in general. Over the past year however my periods are becoming very heavy again, so I’m concerned that my body is too used to the hormone now and things might revert back, if that’s even possible. I would definitely recommend for anyone suffering with acne.
