I have been using birth control pills regularly. But since Yasmin, I had been getting horrible pre-menstrual symptoms. I get sudden painful cramps and occasional bloating too. Esides, the drug has caused rapid mood swings in me. I became a totally different person since the intake of this ridiculous pill. I strongly feel that may be the drug is responsible for my current malady of Erythema Nodosum. I also get excessive joint pains for two months on end with big red rashes on it.
