I've taken yasmin a number of times years ago for birth control and also to control my period. I now have a healthy 2and a half year old son,he's perfectly healthy,i have been on many bc over the years due to bad periods but also because i wasnt ready for a baby,but when i did get pregnant,the previous bc i took had no after effect on me or the baby.Thats "me"personally.
Is there a reason why you ask??
If you were to continue taking Yasmin while pregnant then there might be a problem. Yasmin is in pregnancy category X which carries the following warning:
Studies in animals or humans have demonstrated fetal abnormalities and/or there is positive evidence of human fetal risk based on adverse reaction data from investigational or marketing experience, and the risks involved in use of the drug in pregnant women clearly outweigh potential benefits.
So it is recommended that you stop taking the Yasmin before becoming pregnant. If you would happen to become pregnant while still taking the Yasmin, which is not very likely, you would need to discontinue promptly to avoid any potential problem.
