Porblems using Yasmin

I have been to see a gynae for heavy and painful periods. The heavy bleeding causes my pressure to drop. I was using Ovral for heavy and painful periods and the gynae changed it to Yasmin since he said that using ovral has very high estrogen and should not be used for long. However ever since i started using Yasmin my periods have not stopped. Should i go back to using Ovral? I have had this problem before where using other pills don't stop my period and ovral was the only one that controls it.

It is correct that you should not use Ovral for long periods of time. If the lower dose pills don't work, you may have to consider something like the Mirena.
