I had my yearly last month. The Gyno wanted me to have an ultrasound. It was vaginal and abdominal. I found out that I have ovarian cysts. My cycles have been bad. Too long and heavy. She says these are signs of this. So her solution was to put me back on the pill to help with these cysts and my cycles. I am usually IBS-D. I am scared. Has anyone had any real bad IBS problems and what side effects can I expect other than nausea for a while. What about weight gain? Moods?

Well, I have only been on Yasmin for a month so far, but the side effects were pretty much what you mentioned beforehand...I was nauseous for a week straight, but that is about it. The Yasmin has a diuretic (sp?) which will make you have to pee a lot, so you will actually see some weight loss!I have had no IBS-D attacks with this pill so far. I was on Ortho Tri Cyclen for 6 years before switching over to Yasmin. THAT ONE seemed to have caused problems...weight gain, sever D attacks, painful periods....
...so far Yasmin is not doing any of that to me, so I think you should be ok
