  • I have taken the generic version and have been recently diagnosed with depressive anxiety. However, it does not seem to be related.

  • I'm bipolar and on Yasmin. It's the ONLY birth control that doesn't make my depression worse (from the 10 or so that I've tried), but it's different for everyone.I still have a lot of depressed times, but not as bad as while I'm on a progestin only kind. Definitely talk to your doctor about it and consider alternatives.

    As far as anxiety, I'm not sure if mine is a side effect or if it's just because my life is so crazy right now.

  • Nope, but I normally get emotional a week before my period.
