Yasmin was an effective birth control pill with me. I had been using it for almost two years. It did reduce the water retention in my body. And it could also clear all the acne I had. However all this was at a cost. I have completely lost out on my sex drive. I began to experience the worst of pre menstrual syndrome symptoms. I become extremely fatigued. And I also got depression. I therefore decided to stop Yasmin and is switching to another birth control pill from this week.
