Hi, I have suffered with severe diarrhea everyday for years and only very recently linked it to Yasmin. I had years of eliminating food groups and trying so many things and nothing helped. I tried so many things as a last resort I tried my medications and yasmin was the first one I stopped. Within a week of not taking yasmin the daily attacks of diarrhea began to get better. I do still have a few light problems but on the whole things have been 100% better since stopping yasmin. I certainly do know that the daily dairrhea was definitely caused by the pill Yasmin. I have since been back through my diaries and the problems began about a year after starting yasmin but because it got gradually worse I didn't link the 2 things. I lost most of my 20's because I had never heard that it could cause diarrhea - actually even the doctors and specialists had never heard of this before either. So not a good experience at all and I won't take another contraceptive pill again as long as I live.
I have suffered with diarrhea for over a decade now. I'm constantly trying to find the reason why I suddenly got this and how to get rid of it. I hope that I might be able to help someone else suffering with this, by sharing what I have learnt along the way.
