    Question Ortho tri Cyclen vs. Yasmin

    So I've been on ortho tri cyclen for over 3 years and my PMS has gotten increasingly worse over time. After looking back over my experience with it I realize that during that time I was very depressed and went on anti-depressants for about a year, have gained 15 pounds and have awful breast tenderness and cry at the drop of a pin for about a week and a half every month.

    My doctor has switched me to Yasmin which I will start this week. I'm looking to see if there is anyone out there who may have gone from ortho to yasmin who might have any insight for me. I've heard bad and good about both and I know most people get motivated to speak up when they've had a negative experience but does anyone have anything good to say about Yasmin?
    thanks!

    Yasmin is the most prescribed birth control pill, so it obviously is successful for many women. Yasmin and OTC differ hormones, so it's likely that you'll have a good experience on Yasmin, since you didn't do well with OTC.
