Coming off the Pill-Yasmin
When I came off it my periods were extra heavy and painful too for about 2 or 3 months (though culd this be a side effect of the pill in general?) Just to be warned.
It's funny to see all the threads about periods, pills etc. I have a colleague (male) who is constantly amazed by how us women can get so much "conversational mileage" out of periods. We have them for 25% of the time for roughly 40 years - every second person in the world has them, and yet we still find new things to talk about and share lol.
hi i went back on yasmin 4 months ago after a six month break. i am like a demon, have gained weight and mood swings are so bad. also getting loads of spots and irrregular bleeding, glad im not the only one. im defo coming off it!
I was the same Ash - I turned into a monster on it!
I actually lost weight when I came off yasmin, I also got acne on my back but that has disappeared now. I would recommend coming off it I feel a lot better, I used to be very crabbie while on it. Good Luck
I have been on the pill for 10 years (Yasmin/Dianette/Microlite) as I want to give my body a break. Any idea what side effects I can expect? Have been doing some research and have seen that many people experience weight gain! Anyone have any experience of this?
