Hi,

I am currently on Yasmin and so far there haven' t been any serious side effects and I' ve been on it for more than 1 year.
I haven' t gained any weight or anything.
What I have noticed though is a change in mood but nothing major and also a serious lack in libido which isn' t ideal if you' re in a relationship.
You must remember that everyone' s different and this pill might affect you differently to how it affects me or anyone else.
In the box that the pill comes in there is a little booklet that explains everything and all the possible side-effects and how common they are etc.

Good luck!
