Stopping Yasmin Pill Today!


Hello!
I am new to the forum! Im sorry I expect you hear this alot! But I took my last pill of the pack today and could really do with talking to people in the same situation just for help and support really! Its just I dont wanna tell friends or family yet so I could really do with people to talk to! Im just feeling a bit all over the place because I have been on the pill for a while now and I am not sure how my body will adapt to coming off the pill and how long it will take and im just worrying incase there are any problems that prevent us etc?! So it would be great to talk to people who understand and are going through the same thing or have done in the past?!
Thank you!

i was worried about coming off as i used to often take mine back-to-back and skip periods for convenience! but all that seems to have happened is they are every 40ish days rather than 28-30 days. i switched between 3 different types too - cilest, dianette and microgynon - all combined pills i think. I just checked on google think Yasmin is a combined pill too? Hopefully things will work out well you can only wait and see, and waiting is something im getting used to (or not!!!) xxxxxx

I switched between Dianette and Yasmin. I know I guess waiting is something I will get used to. Ive told myself no pressure though but I can see me getting all worried now lol. Its just a waiting game I guess and the unknown. I hope things work out well for you too. I know everyones different and bodies work different but at the same time its nice to know you are not the only one and its nice to talk to people that understand what you are going through. Thank you! xxxxx

I quit Yasmin in June and have had one natural period since. It came on day 26 and overall was pretty okay. Now I'm waiting for the big O this month.

I've experienced some weird mood swings since, one day of spotting a few days ago, hot flashes here and there and several other symptoms that were easy to attribute to (nonexistent) pregnancy.

Hi there, I had been on the pill for 14 years, and whilst not on Yasmin the entire time, it is the last pill I was on.

I stopped Yasmin on 14 June and had withdrawal bleed on 18 June. My doctor had told me that it could take up to 6 months for my period to return, so I was ready for the wait. However, on 18 July, I had AF. I was overjoyed to see it, but then realised that I had forgotton just how sore it was lol.

Anyway, AF lasted 5 days, and after that, I was ready to go. So, this month is my first month TTC, right now I am in my fertile time (I think) but as it is hard to know how long my cycles are on average, as I have only had one, I have BD every two days and more recently, every day. Not sure and not overly optimistic that it will all work out first month of trying, but I might as well give it a shot.

Hi I stopped yasmin after being on it for years last August/September just in time for us getting married and ttc a honeymoon baby, I had a withdrawel bleed then I have had 4 natural periods since then and just had one induced by taking tablets. I hope you don't have this bother, I wouldn't wish this on anyone! Needless to say If I ever do get my "honeymoon" baby I will never be going back on the pill again. Good luck to you xx
