Someone who LOVES Yasmin!
I've read a lot of negative posts on here about Yasmin and was incredibly afraid to try it. I switched from Apri (generic Mircette) in March and had plenty of doubts about it's success in the first few weeks.
However, I'm just about to have my third period on it and I have to say....I LOVE IT!!! I have had no break-through bleeding, no depression (though I'm a teacher and these last few days of school are bliss!), and my skin is seriously the best it has ever been in my LIFE. I had a few pimples on my chin the other day and decided to try some over-the-counter pads (Stridex) since I don't have a dermatologist around this area yet, and it cleared things up right away. I talked to my sister yesterday and she is equally pleased with the results it is bringing her.
Keep in mind I never have menstruated regularly and have been on PLENTY of BC pills, so perhaps that has helped my condition a bit. I don't think the side effects have been any worse then the others. I have irritable bowel syndrome and noticed my stomach was a bit queasy the first few weeks, but my fiber supplement seems to have taken care of that just fine.
Anyway, I'm sure it's not right for everyone and perhaps, over time, I will be less pleased. However, I wanted to share a positive experience for those in a similar situation to me that may be very happy with Yasmin!
