    symptoms after taking yasmin birth control pill
    stingers05 posted:
    I have been on yasmin for over 3 1/2 years and recently got off it (beginning of july). I had my period about 5 weeks after I stopping taking the pill. Ever since then, I haven't have my period! The only symptoms I have since stopping is a little nausea but I haven't had any weight gain. What do you think this could be?
    tlkittycat1968 responded:
    Some women take longer for their period to return to normal after going off birth control. It usually takes a few months but can take up to a year is some cases.

    If you're worried, you can visit your doctor who might give you somethng to jump-start your period.
