Dear Gynae doc,

Could you please explain to me what the difference between Yasmin and Melodene is as a pill.. I have been on Melodene for about 2years and now have been changed to Yasmin but am not too sure of the differences and if I should expect any changes in my body or mood with this change..

Thank you,

Melodene messed up my hormones! I am VERY emotional and this almost lead to a divorce. I have all the side effects, moodiness, depression, wanting to throw up. All my friends suggests Yasmin (one is a nurse) so I will start on it at the start of my new cycle!

Hi I was also on Melodene and my gynae changed to me Yasmin. He said that I would find that I would lose weight on Yasmin. I have only been on it for 1 week so I have not really noticed anything yet.

Would like to see the answers you get.
