Experience

I was on Yasmin for 8 years before making the decision to have an implant (due to my bad pill admin). During the 10 months i had this, i had irregular and heavy bleeding that would last up to 15 days only to sometimes repeat again after a week off. The bleeding was so heavy at time that i was have to wake up at night to change. I also spent days in the office with a sanitary pad as well as a tampon as the bleeding would soak up a super heavy tampon in less than 2 hrs. Moodwise i was another person. And during the bad moods, i’d be paranoid and in tears.
