I had been on Yasmin for 4 years and have made the decision to stop taking it in order to try to get pregnant. I wanted to write about the experiences I am having as I know that women are often worried about the side effects they'll get when coming off the pill. Well, so far I've only been off it for a week and I have had some side effects:
Greasier skin - my skin has become more oily and I have had a few more spots, but these have been small and superficial. Started using BP again and that has really sorted them out. I couldn't use BP while on Yasmin as it made my skin dry.
Greasier hair - my hair gets oily more quickly, but nothing major.
Losing weight - the weight seems to be coming off and I am less hungry
Eyebrows thinner - really strange, I know.
Libido has improved dramatically.
Anyway, I'll try to keep people updated on how this progresses. xxx
