I am 22 years old and I've been using Yasmin for about 3 years now. (to help with acne and severe period pain). I spoke to my new doctor and he suggested that I change to Qlaira for better contraception (seeing that I am getting married in September) and to help me re-balace my weight. I gained 10kg over last 2 years but I am not sure if Yasmin is to blame. After reading a few discussions about Qlaira online; it seems to be a very bad idea to change! More than half of the women gained weight, had irregular cycles and spotting. I have NO of the above symptoms with Yasmin. I am so confused. What should I do?
