Day 8

Little Sarah


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 :wacko:

Eyebrows thinner - really strange, I know.

Libido has improved dramatically.

Anyway, I'll try to keep people updated on how this progresses. xxx
