Experience

I do not recommend this pill to anyone, particularly those who suffer with migraines. A course of dizzy spells led up to me passing out, of which an MRI and blood tests demonstrated Yasmin was the cause of this.

Experience after taking

It took a few months for the dizziness to go away and for periods to regulate as normal. However, the process of coming off this pill made me feel drained as what I can only imagine withdrawal symptoms to feel like.

Had a similar experience?
