Yasmin and weight loss

I'm switching from Alesse to Yasmin birth control. Is anyone on Yasmin? Did you gain weight? I've been on Ortho-Tri and Alesse and on both I gained weight! I know Yasmin has a diuretic in it...so I just wanted to get other opinions before I start Yasmin. I don't want to gain any more weight!

As I've said before, ALL forms of birth control can cause weight gain. You won't know how it will affect you until you try it.

Re: Yasmin and weight loss

Yeah I gained on yasmin as well. I took it for only 6 months and switched due to insurance converage 2 years ago. I know they have issues with Yasmin and your potassium levels. I would speak to your Dr. about that to be sure.

Re: Yasmin and weight loss

I was on yasmin for a month and noticed my clothes getting tighter and the scale showed I gained a few pounds. I am not taking the second pack due to this.

Roxygirl, I'm curious have you made the switch to yasmin? I just switched this week and was wondering what your experience was.
