Hi, I'm 19, new to oral contraceptives, but after a few "accidents" (condom breaking, thus ECP), my doctor suggested that I go on the pill. I thought it would be a good idea, because the ECPs put my period on whack and the condom breaking was getting annoying.
But, I didn't do my research very well on the Internet, I only went to a contraceptives info class at my college and then went to my doctor, who prescribed Yasmin for me, saying that this was (in her opinion) the one with the least side effects.
After I started googling Yasmin, this was when I started to get really scared - not just mood swings as I thought but MAJOR depression and anxiety problems, fatigue, a lot of libido decrease and lack of wetness, as well as those people who had blood clots are starting to really scare me. I'm not a smoker, but my boyfriend is, so I'm scared if that'll affect me as well. (He tries not to smoke in front of me when possible, b/c I hate it)
I'm supposed to start this Sunday, but now I'm getting some second thoughts about this...can anyone reassure me?
I don't want to go on the pill if I become an emotional-psychopath or I lose my sex drive a lot...(my bf says my drive is pretty big though
I did talk to my doctor about some of the concerns I had about side effects and she told me to try it out and we would have an appointment in 3 months to see how it goes..
