    Yasmin for Contraception; Pain (menstruation); Acne

    I have been taking the Yasmin for a little over a year, starting with the weaker form (Yasminelle). When I only took the Yasmin, the effect was better. The skin was soon super (had to fight with acne before). Also, at first I did not increase. Unfortunately, the yasmin and the lamotrigine are in unfavorable interaction. The progestin effect of the pill is diminished by the lamotrigine and the effect of the lamotrigine by the pill, but I managed to come to terms with it (especially by taking both medications at a certain interval so that the hormones could already be ingested before the next lamotrigine In the end, lamotrigine is the only antiepileptic medication that I can take with the pill, unfortunately I have gained a few pounds since then Unfortunately, I can not say which of the medications I have taken, which is quite positive noticed is that the estrogens have a completely different effect on me, namely, that since then my mood is more stable in the long term, than under the pure lamotrigine ingestion (the first days I was a little bent, since permanently stable) The pain that I had before and during menstruation has almost completely disappeared, and the bleeding itself has been shortened by several days and much weaker. Great!!

    Yasmin for Acne

    Yasmin was recommended to me by my FA because I suffered a lot from acne. The skin problems have improved, but unfortunately I had to detect ettliche side effects. I always get a headache during the regular breaks. Besides, I do not feel like having sex anymore. Sometimes it even bothers me when he only touches me !!! In addition, I suffer from hypertension. I really can only advise against this pill. I’ll finish this pill and drop it off immediately! I have also gained weight since taking the pill.

    Far too expensive, makes impure skin, I had to sleep at least 15 hours per day on the weekend, increased 8 kg (steady kilo increase), but the hunger feeling was still there, no matter how much I ate. Tachycardia or too slow a heartbeat made me almost unable to breathe and my breathing was hard (and my heart ached). In addition, I was extremely emotional, aggressive and depressed. Let’s get your hands off it …! I can only advise against it. This is really a horror pill.

    I would not recommend Yasmin. Since I started, there have been a gradual and ever-increasing number of side effects: weight gain, more frequent migraine attacks, severe depression and mood swings, severe abdominal pain, respiratory distress, heart rhythm disturbances .. I suspect these are due to this pill, since I never used it before had suffered (except with migraine). That’s why I dropped Yasmin.

    Hello I can not recommend the Yasmin. Did she take about 3 years, and in the first half year 10 kg (!) Increased. Then after about 1 year I got severe menstrual pain (I had NEVER before) – so bad that I stayed in bed more often even at home. After some time, severe chest pain also became a part of it – so much so that my then boyfriend could not even hug me anymore, because I cried out in pain. My desire for sex was also getting lower (my girlfriend had the geiche problem) … At some point I was fed up with the pain and talked with my FA. She said I should take the pill, so do not take a break. Result: I didn’t have my days any more and thus kenie Regelschmeren, but my breasts felt like just before bursting. So I dropped Yasmin and used the Nuva ring as a replacement. Although I do not get along with him – but I have no more pain and also lost 5kg. The desire came again xD Will now take Cerazette and then turn to the 3-month injection. But my report should not put you off – with every woman the side effects are different … My best friend was hammering headache – with me abdominal and chest pain. Greetings Nene

    I’m really glad that this site exists! I have been taking the pill Yasmin continuously for about 6 years .. To be honest I did not have any side effects at the beginning .. For that now all the more. Everything started a few months ago .. more and more regular pain. Now it is really a hellish pain that forces me to my knees and can not get up. It only takes a few minutes but several times a day before and during menstruation .. And in the meantime, too! Although not so strong, but it hurts .. and more often, such a pull down. Feels very strange … I never had to fight blemishes to be honest .. which has changed in the last few months too. Now every month I get some pimples punctually (still the smallest evil). Chest pains and such a draw is meanwhile in the meantime. In the last 2 months I have also gained a good 5kg. Is now not too tragic .. Only my eating habits did not change at all .. I continue to do my sport. Have my weight can always keep constant .. What disturbs me but by far the most is my loss of libido. I can cry so .. Especially since it is no longer funny for my friend. That’s so bad .. I almost have to force myself to have sex. Thought if we maybe more foreplay and do that then more happens .. but nothing, zero, nada! It just does not work. I feel absolutely no desire, no matter what I try. That puts a strain on me (and, frankly, my relationship too). And it’s kind of uncomfortable for me to talk about it. It seems so abnormal to me .. It just can understand no one. My friend could not imagine at the beginning, that it is due to the pill (because just every second woman takes the pill and I myself have taken her for years without problems). Have him now a few reviews of this site shown and slowly he can do something with it. Habs then finally managed to go to my FA and tell him about my problems. He did not want to hear that anyway .. I asked him his opinion about Gynefix .. of course absolute nonsense in his eyes! He said the only problem is that I still have my days. So he prescribed me the pill Yaz. But do not understand the meaning behind why I should suppress my menstrual period. It does not bother me at all in the sense .. Why should I take 7 days placebos? Absolutely senseless in my eyes. In the meantime, I believe that my dear Mr. FA, like most others, simply has a contract with Bayer Schering. That’s why he only prescribes these products .. I have now decided to sell the pill. Although I probably have to live with pimples and even more weight gain … all this is still better than these hormone bombs daily. If I have enough money aside, then I’ll try it with the Gynefix .. I would advice every woman from the pill! Never again hormones! lg

    I used the Yasmin for about 6 years for contraception, I did not become pregnant with it. Apart from about 3kg of weight gain and a little bad skin as well as strong bitchiness shortly before the day I also tolerated it well. But a month ago, non-smoker, normal weight, athletic, I had a deep vein thrombosis in my right arm. Since I have no risk factors other than the pill, it took quite a long time to diagnose them. During the time I was walking around with a thrombosis, it could easily lead to a fatal pulmonary embolism. I can strongly advise against the Yasmin and other preparations with the drug drospirenone (Valette, Yasminelle) !!!

    Yasmin for Pain (menstruation)

    YASMIN … The pill that changed my life … Sounds dramatic, but true !! For a long time I did not notice anything and most of all I did not think that severe depression could be due to the pill … If only I would have come up with it rather than listening to the funny doctors (yes, the Yasmin is expensive * wink) thanks Pharma *), so I would have spared me a lot! Only after about three years it started with the depression, first tired, impotent, sad … then so badly depressed that I have thought of suicide several times, complete withdrawal from the social environment, no head for job, husband, the like !! Migraine attacks (which I never had before), where I sometimes thought of ordering myself an ambulance, the pain was so bad !! But that was not the end of the flagpole: high blood pressure, weight gain, perfect Libido loss, pain in the long run Sex, changing my personality to an absolutely withdrawn mourning dumpling! When I finally, after 5 years of taking, despite the reluctance of my oh so expert doctors, dared to omit the monster pill … yes, I had within 3 months my old personality again! I can laugh again, no trace of Depri, do not let me hang anymore, no more migraines, all my (by the retreat) abandoned in the lurch friends again, ironed out my mistakes and paralysis in the job and ready for new acts! 🙂 May probably everyone else react on it, as I said that went well for three years … As a conclusion from the Odysee I can only advise every girl out there: listen to your body, watching small signals and changes to you before It forces you to kneel like me! I’d rather settle down and wait, see what happens to you … then you can start again, if you want! At least I’ll NEVER AGAIN take this nasty thing AGAIN !!! And above all: the doctors are not always right, there are always alternativesHope I gave you a little food for thought … Best wishes for your health 😉

    After I took the pill Yasmin 10 kg increased. Despite regular sports and the same amount of food I have always gained weight. My legs were swollen every day and the whole body felt like a balloon. There were also headaches and listlessness. Even I had at times depression, that I did not even want to go outside. Now I have the pill discontinued and hope that my old weight comes back again. In itself, Yasmin is not recommended. Better to grab another pill.

    I took the Yasmin for a total of about 2 years. At first, migraine occurred in one pill during the pill break. The migraine attacks increased with the duration of use-I had up to five days of migraine during the pill break. I consulted my gynecologist who advised me to take 3 packs in a row. Said and done. The side effects would be unbearable at this time: migraine, weight gain, total loss of libido, depression, dizziness, fatigue, listlessness. I dropped the pill on the advice of a new gynecologist before the end of the third pack.

    For the first time I did not notice any side effects, gradually depression, aggression, mood swings, hopelessness started. Over time, bladder weakness and constipation were added. I gained about 10kg during this time, because I felt an extreme desire for sweets. Conclusion: I did not know for a long time where my mental problems came from, so these side effects have had a bad effect on my social environment. I’ll think twice about using a homoneal contraceptive again.
