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.

There are 1000's of different kinds of birth control pills out there. You may need a higher or lower estrogen pill. I had good luck with seasonale, but only for a year. I'd call your doctor and see if you can switch to a different one for a while. I changed so many times that I don't think I paid for the pills for 2 or 3 years - my doctor would give me 3 months of sample packs and then I'd have to try a different one. Mindy
