Question Yasmin??

Ok, I'm 18 years old and really want to be on BC. I'm in college so getting pregnant would not be a good thing right now. I've tried BC in the past but it always made me terribly sick (nausea, headaches) and also constipated :S. Also I'm thin and I don't want to deal with the weight gain associated with taking the pill. Does Yasmin make you gain weight?? Also what about the side affects?? I also have mild acne and I heard that yasmin will help clear up acne is that true?? Please any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!!

I am not on yasmin. but I have heard that it has a special dirtectic in it to help with water weight gain. It aso has a special kind of progesterin in it to help acne as well. You should do a search on the web, you will find the yasmin web site, I cannot give you the address here. Good Luck!

First, you should really do a search on this board itself. There have been TONS of posts about Yasmin!

My experience:
~ I did gain weight - about 8 lbs in 6 months
~ It did clear my acne in 4 months, but I had an initial breakout in the first month.
~ My periods were much shorter and lighter

But of course, every woman's experience is different, just depending on your body's reactions to the hormones. You never really know until you go on the acutal pill yourself.
