    I switched from Yasminell to Yasmin because I had big mood swings at the Yasminelle. Now I have started the first pack and have all the side effects as often described, diarrhea), migraine and even larger mood fluctuations. I also have problems in the left arm and the hand numbness.

    Side effects: Diarrhea; Migraine; Mood swings

    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.

    Yasmin for Depression

    Just terrible! Take the Yasmin now over 1 year, after taking the first pack, I had terrible mood swings. I was unbearable. Have increasingly worse headaches, breast tenderness and listlessness, sudden cramps without a reason, before, during and after the period. 4 months ago then hair loss and it is getting worse. Will the Yasmin now sell, because it is now not only for my environment unbearable. I myself can not handle myself anymore. I definitely do not recommend YasminHowever, I did not gain weight and did not notice any change in my skin (neither positive nor negative)

    Hello After I discontinued the pill Famina ratiopharm 20, because it was too low doses I was prescribed the Yasmin. It was said to make beautiful hair and skin, eases the menstrual cramps and you would not get overweight. After a few weeks I suffered from circulatory problems. My legs and arms continued to fall asleep without me lying on it or otherwise restricting my blood flow. I was not overweight and my menstrual cramps were gone, but the skin did not improve. In the third month, I once had symptoms of pregnancy. I felt as if I had my days, I was sick all day, I had stomach ache, dizziness, abdominal pain, fatigue, headache, joint pain, genital pain, and so on. Mood swings. In these 3 months I had 3 times a bladder infection. I was at the doctor who realized that I was NOT pregnant. I stopped the pill and the symptoms were ALL gone. Stay away from this pill … !!

    In the beginning there were no problems. Before that, I took the Belara but discontinued it because of the frequent migraine attacks and tried the Yasmin. The headaches are gone, but there are other side effects, such as Circulatory problems or mood swings. Can not really recommend it.

    Initially very good compatibility. Meanwhile, I have to fight with migraine, mood swings and Libido loss. Also bad – appearance of large-area pigmentation marks on the face (very sunny after sun exposure – Sunblocker does not help)!

    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) !!!

    My life with Yasmine. Like many others, I too have taken the Yasmine for four years and can only advise against any woman / girl. How it all began .. I wanted a pill that not only protects against unwanted pregnancy, but also removes my blemishes. It was really great for 2 years – my skin was finally beautiful, I had not gained a single kilogram and it seemed like I would really tolerate this pill. What Yasmine actually did with my body .. After 2 years of Yasmine I got very strong mood swings and even became depressed. On some days it was so bad that I could not stop crying, I took everything to heart – everyone in my opinion was suddenly against me and criticized me. But I could not imagine that personality change came from the pill, even though it was already a serious change from a fun-loving person to a more and more miserable pile of misery. What was more was the lack of desire for sex and the pain – I had to force myself to it and there was simply no explanation for the pain. Since my skin had deteriorated again, I decided after 3 years to go to the gynecologist and discuss with her the eventual discontinuation of the pill – which proved to be a gross error. When I told her about my intention, she wanted to stop me by arguing that if I put the pill off, it would look as dry as a postmenopausal woman because I’m going to miss estrogen. She even managed that and I naive being swallowed the Yasmin for another year before dropping it off without consultation. How I am doing now without Yasmin … I have dropped the Yasmin now for a 3/4 year and I’m really good. I have my skin through a diet change quite under control, have no menstrual pain and the desire is there again. But the most important thing for me is that I am finally balanced and not lying in my bed for days crying – I enjoy the world to the fullest and have social contacts again. Conclusion Yasmin is very expensive and has unbelievable side effects, and gynecologists often act as sellers to the pharmaceutical industry and back it up with incredible arguments. Dare and put the Yasmin down – you may be spared some of that! 🙂

    After 2 years of using Yasmin and reading dozens of testimonials, I finally know where my bad mental states are coming from, for which I’ve been getting ready for months, since I do not know myself that way and at the end I was just more desperate about it goes without knowing why and without understanding it. The following symptoms have been getting worse over the past two years: depression, aggression, irritability, contentiousness, extreme moodiness, fluctuation in frustration, listlessness, hopelessness, trepidation, nervous breakdowns, hysteria, constipation, rashes on the inside of the forearm and on the thighs. Speech disorders (sometimes I confuse words, my dishwashers and say fridge – sounds funny, but it is not in the long run). Disorientation and balance problems, dizziness, circulatory collapse, nausea, Bach’s pain, disorders of taste and smell (things taste and smell different, not as usual). No sense of body, the feeling that I’m a stranger to myself and stand next to me, have no sense of and no control over my body, no control over my mental state. Vaginal dryness, pain in the GV, sexual listlessness. Negative thoughts that I can barely detect, permanent tiredness, slackness, lack of stamina. Perplexity and bewilderment about the condition, because I did not know what was wrong with me and everything was just put on stress. Although I am a little quick-tempered, but by my nature a cheerful, positive and life-affirming person who goes through life with much joy. I lost everything since Yasmin, dropped her off yesterday and hope I’ll be okay soon.

    Yasmin for Contraception

    Strong loss of libido. I would never have daruaf that could come from the pill until I read the side effects. I was now with my gynecologist and asked you to tell me something else, because I also have strong mood swings and during the intake of constantly irritable and aggressive. She recommended the NuvaRing to me now. Unfortunately I read in the leaflet that it can cause the same side effects. Does anyone have any experience with this ring? I would like to return to lust and have fun with sex with my darling and if the ring prevents this, I will not even test it first!

    Have been prescribed by my gynecologist the pill Yasmin. Had the first month throughout headache and a pulling and tightening in the chest but what happened after about a month. Was pretty quarrelsome and moody. At the beginning of the third pack, I got breathing problems (and very heavy breathing pains). As the pain became stronger and became unbearable I went to the hospital where thrombosis in the left leg and a bilateral pulmonary embolism were detected. Now I take Marcoumar for about 6 months and must wear a support stocking.

    In the first years of use except breast tenderness and some water retention no serious side effects. For about 1.5 years – Regular migraine-like headache with blurred vision, – often circulatory problems, – strong breast tenderness v.a. in 3 and 4 intake week, although I am actually a very balanced, calm and patient person: extreme irritability / strong, to depressive mood swings / tearfulness – & gt; always on time from the 3rd week of intake, at least until the onset of the menstrual period. -Water retention in the legs -Very bloated belly I expressed at my gynecologist the suspicion that I may no longer tolerate the pill. He put my symptoms into perspective and only recommended that I take the Yasmin through several months … which struggles me again. After reading these many accounts of similar side effects, and you can obviously see a connection to taking Yasmin, I will now change my FA and definitely switch to another pill.

    After not so long search, I now hope to have come to the bottom of all evil! I read some of your testimonials here and it fell like dandruff from the eyes – the Yasmin is poison and should be taken off the market! I’ve finished my current streak and am now taking a pill break and hope to get rid of all the side effects. In the first few weeks I found the Yasmin quite good, the skin improved and I did not gain weight, but again and again I got bleeding. After about 5 months it stopped, but after a short time it started again. After 6 months, my stomach slowly blew up, I look like the 5th month pregnant, although I am very slim. Also stomach problems, nausea and diarrhea torture me for weeks again and again for no apparent reason. The Migraeneattacken and permanent headache in the last about 3 weeks before Abruch made me crazy. Also, I could note significant mood swings and tearfulness, my friend recently said to me that he no longer dares to say anything, because otherwise I would get a totally overblown emotional outburst. I have been very healthy before taking Yasmin and are constantly bothering with colds, allergic skin reactions, stomach problems, bladder infections and pain (wherever). Maedels, keep your hands off this devil as soon as you realize something is wrong. The Yasmin I definitely do not recommend.

    I was prescribed the pill Yasmin about 2 years ago in England because it does not give the Novial pill there. At first I was very satisfied and had no problems, no bleeding, clear skin, no weight gain, no chest problems. But since last year, I notice more changes just before my period notice: mood swings and depressive behavior. I am crying a lot and my mood changes from -10 to +500 which I am very irritated. My husband confirms that, too. I had bile removed at the age of only 30, and recently cysts have been detected. I never had any problems with Novial and I’m sure I took them 6/7 years.

    I had very very strong mood swings after the 3rd intake. I cried for hours – for no good reason. For this my eye has been drawn for hours! For days! In the first week, tachycardia came along. No desire for sexual intercourse! I had to force myself that at least that’s still going well in the relationship. I was like a substitute – a stranger. I was always looking for a fight with extreme jealousy. When I mentioned my FA on it, he said that this is over and that the heart racing can not get away. Strangely, it was perfect for me before that. Shortly before the period, I got anxiety and panic attacks. Very depressive mood. The still holding and I got professional help because of that. My period, which was usually 3-4 days, also became longer, stronger and more painful. For 7 days and 5 days, I took painkillers one after the other. After the first cycle, I discontinued the pill as it became more unbearable day by day because I became more unbearable! After weaning: tachycardia for 2 weeks, even while asleep. Very real nightmares

    Side effects occurred only after about 3 years of use: diarrhea, headache, strong mood swings just before, during and after the period, depression, wobbly teeth, hair loss getting worse, flatter and dulling hair despite professional hair products (had thick curls before the pill) ), constantly changing light weight gain and loss, always within weeks. Now I realized that I also developed a lactose intolerance. I will drop you off after completing this pack and talk to my gynecologist about alternatives.

    It started very slowly. I was given this pill Yasmin after three pregnancies for contraception. At first everything was fine. Simple, practical and effective. Overall, I took this pill 8 years. It started about 4 years ago. These constantly changing moods. Heavenly from exulting to distressed. Constantly, I got a cryptic attack. After the onset of total muscle tension which caused the following problems. Tachycardia, total insomnia, chest pain, anxiety and panic attacks … etc, a doctors odyssey began. Orthopedics, Physio, Mammography, Gynecology, CT, MRI, family doctor ..etc. It was hell. After a family doctor change and a total collapse, I thought my problems would now resolve. This meant I had a mental problem. From then on psychology with antidepressants, sleeping pills and psychotherapy. I found it helpful, but somehow I secretly did not seem to have the solution. Also, the side effects of the drugs were fierce. In addition, I got problems in the genital area. Vaginal dryness, open spots that did not heal, itching … etc. And all without sex, because I had not wanted for years. So back to gynecology. For the first time I asked if my problems could not be related to the pill. I was advised to keep these on, otherwise the depression would probably get worse. I had to go to biopsy, suspecting LS. After much back and forth, I changed the gynecologist. I told this about my odyssey. He encouraged me to put the pill immediately. Then probably a lot of my problems would be done by itself. I’ve thought about it for a long time, but I was advised against it. I was somehow no longer normal or myself. Constantly howling, depressed, fear of death, so no desire for sex at all, always irritated and annoyed ….. etc. In addition, the optical changes: obesity, water retention, especially in the arms and legs, varicose veins … etc. The new gynecologist should be right. Now after 8 weeks without Yasmin, I’m not feeling well anymore. I can sleep, I’m fit and have not cried since, no more anxiety disorders. I feel my body again. The orange skin is almost gone, the muscle tension is gone, and I even feel like sex again. If I review, I am horrified how much valuable life was taken from me by taking such a drug. In addition, with the exception of a single doctor, no one has come up with the idea that all these problems could come from this hormone preparation. I have been better informed, and will not eat any more hormones in my life. I hope I could help one or the other woman with my personal experience.
