I have been taking Yasmin for at least 6 months now. I hate it now. I have the absolute worst cramps ever. I cramp so bad I think I'm in labor or something. The pain shoots down my right thigh too. I am 27 years old and I havent had cramps like these since I was 13. My flow is very brown and like a gooey clunky consistency. It's gross. I'm also noticing my breasts are swollen, I've gained at least 10 lbs., I go through intense hunger spells, I'm tired - don't want to get out of bed in the morning, and now I've even got acne again. I also experienced a weird eye thing a few months ago. I went to the eye doctor he said I had floaters -- this didn't look like floaters to me -- they looked like someone took a pencil and dotted a whole bunch of little dots on a piece of paper -- that is what I was looking through for about 3 weeks. Drove me crazy. I was taking Ortho Novum 777 (tri-phasil) for 2 years before I switched to Yasmin (mono-phasil). With 777 I had really bad migraine headaches. With Yasmin -- pretty much no headaches. But the cramps -- the cramps give me a headache from the pain now. I'm calling my doctor to make an appointment to talk about putting me on a new pill. I'm going to ask about the new Ortho TriCyclen-Lo. I'm also calling Berlex Labs at 1-888-237-5394 to tell them about my horrible side effects.
