Headaches with Yasmin?
Hi, everyone. I accidentally threw away the paper inserts that came with my script--is 'headaches' a side effect of yasmin? Almost everyday since I started them I'll get a mild headache that comes and goes all day. Is this something one gets past at some point or is it a side effect I'll need to learn to live with?
Sandi :confused:

I've just come off Levlen and onto Yasmin, and I have been getting headaches a lot...You should probably talk about it next time you see your doctor...

You should give Yasmin atleast 3 months because your body has to get regulated with the new hormones. In the first 3 months your body will probably do all sorts of things while it's trying to adjust. Usually the side effects start to diminish after 3 months.

I had headaches everyday with Yasmin for the first two weeks, then it started getting better. I am now on the last week of my second month,and the biggest side effect I have is really sore breasts. They feel kind of hard too. I am hoping this will get better. I'm going to stay on Yasmin for another couple of months and see what happens. Good luck. :)
