  • Depression is a common side effect with ANY hormonal birthcontrol. I do not take hormones, so I have no first hand experience, but it's something which can come with just about any of them.

  • I never experience that with yasmin. I did have constant bleeding for 3 months and had to be taken off of it. I have the Mirena IUD now and love it.
