Drinking water dose help, it can also help with excess water gain on the pill. I know it sounds strange drink water to get rid of it, but it works. I am on ortho tri cyc lo

Definitely try drinking more water. Remember that Yasmin has a unique progesterone hormone that is a mild diuretic - this is why it doesn't cause water retention like most other BCP. It can also lead to mild dehydration which can cause headaches, so up your water intake and watch out for things that can also dehydrate you like soda and coffee.

If that doesn't do the trick you should probably talk to your doctor.
