Hey all!!! I stopped taking Yasmin about 3 weeks ago, I have been taking it for four years, and others since I was 18 (I am 38 now). The side effects I have experienced are weight gain (8 lbs that WILL NOT go away...........will it when things regulate????), spotting, and a crazy sex drive that I have never had before. I am most concerned with the weight gain, as I have been trying to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight for 2 years. Thanks all!!!
