Yasmin. contraceptive Pill that stops you putting on weight

MixBotMixBot Posts: 8,656 Automated Account
Has anyone here had it? Im thinking of asking my dr for it.
I came off the pill about 10 months ago and quickly lost about a stone, so now for the first time in years im at a weight im happy with, without even trying. Having suffered with eating disorders in the past, this is really important to me (sorry if it sounds shallow) I have heard of a pill called Yasmin which is supposed to be better for not making you gain weight, and was wondering if anyone here had any experience of it.
.
Beep boop. I'm a bot.

    ive been on it and it was no different to any other pill ive been on (which is alot of them) i still gained weight but pills dont cause me to gain that much weight anyway it depends on the person
    i spose the only way to find out is to try it really?

    what do you think of it in comparison to other brands of pill?
    I came off the pill in the first place because I felt it flattened my mood ( I was on microgynon) Ive felt a lot better in general since I came off it, as well as losing weight.
    How do you Yasmin users feel it compares - side effects etc?

    It sounds like you are much happier not being on the pill. Maybe you should have a good read up on other types of contraception and talk to your GP about something else?
    Take a look at the following links for more info:
    TheSite's contraception factsheets
    fpa's guide to contraception
