    Dear Friends,

    I'm posting this thread to check how safe it is to use contraceptive pills. Here in Dubai, I have heard of only 2 pills; yasmin & diane. Friends, I bought Yasmin and saw a big note along with medicine and I felt really scared looking at the symptoms...Any one has used the medicine...any reviews..Any side effects..any weight gain issues...the pharmacist told me ...there may be slight chance of headache & nausea...So friends can some one please guide me before I go further

    I am using Yasmin, I personally didnt experince any side effcts. But for those who did i have heard it passes in a week or 2. No everyone feels the side effects. with birth control pills, its a trial and error process to find one that suits you. If you have really bad side effects your doctor will change you to a differnt pill. Yasmin is common and pretty harmless for young females. so dont worry too much.

    Did you see a medical professional before starting it?
    If you had started without any prior medical advice, it is advisable to see a doctor and discuss these issues.

    Hi,

    OCPs are medications which has to be prescribed by doctors only here.
    They are to used under the guidance of doctors.
    They have lots of side effects which can only be discussed by them.
    So I would suggest you to see them.

    Take care,
    Vaidehi

    I have personal experience of using both Yasmin and Diane long ago..I do not want to scare you but I did face unpleasant side effects..Yasmin made me extremely nauseous and weak and i noticed some weight gain after stopping it..i used Diane for many months and it caused extreme breast tenderness and water retention and weight gain..for some reason I noticed that the weight that I gained after using these pills did not come off that easily even after stopping the pills..I used to get headaches quite often but not sure if it was due to Diane or some other reason.
    I faced a really difficult time with ocps and everyone's body is different..someone else may not have faced these issues with the pill and many say that it helps them with PMS and menstrual bleeding...
    Better to take these pills under medical supervision and discuss all your concerns regarding side effects with a good gynaecologist. If one pill doesn't suit you she may recommend one with a different composition.
