I went on Yasmin about 6 months ago to help my IBS-C during my period. It has been great to be able avoid 'that time of the month' but have not liked the side effects of Yasmin. I have become very cranky, emotional over the smallest things, I have put on weight (even though I am exercising) and have very tender breasts. Wondering if anyone can suggest an alternative pill. I know that the pill is different for certain people but wondering if anyone has had to try different pills and if satisfaction is ever achievable.
