  • Side effect of Yasmine?

    Ladies, I need your help.
    I have been on Yasmine pills for 2 years and everything was fine until few days ago when I started to feel weak, but I was too stressed at work so I thought I am just too exhausted. Then he said that my skin has become more yellowish last few days, and then I notices that my eye pupils are also yellow. I went to doctor and she diagnosed me with something called "scleral icterus" and asked me am I on pills and how much I have left. Since I have 8 pills left, she told me to finish this blister since I had sex and then stop taking them, because my liver could be shutting down, and this is just a side effect. Did anyone experience the same, with Yasmine, or any other birth control?
    Thanks!

  • Yikes Stephanie, that is so scary. I'm sorry you're going through that. I took Yasmin for a couple years but it's been many years ago. I also took many other bc pills before I determined that they were just not right for me. There are always those very rare side effects and what you're experiencing could be one of them. I hope going off the pill fixes your issue.
