'Ello you beauties! I have made quite the life changing decision to come off my birth control pill and I thought I'd share my progress on my blog as a bit of an online diary.
When I made the decision to come off the pill we're going back to late 2013 so I haven't rushed into the decision by any means. I had a chat with my doctor about it in January and decided then that after my six month prescription runs out I'd make the leap to be pill-less.
I've really done my homework on this subject but one thing I really found disconcerting was the lack of was consistent information online; I was on Yasmin and seriously if you google Yasmin in relation to coming off it... OMG the horror stories left me in cold sweats! Seriously horrific things are documented about it, I even watched a YouTube vid entitled 'the pill kills'. Grim much?!
Sooo I have decided to document my journey in coming off the pill with y'all so a) it gives me a bit of focus and acts as a diary and b) on the off chance you stumble across this because you want to know what it is like month by month in coming off the pill.
I'm already into 6 weeks minus the pill (I wanted to get ahead so I can merge a month into a post at a time) and so far I don't have major horror stories to report! Also as acne is a common side effect in stopping Yasmin I thought I'd include pics of my face on a monthly basis too. Just so I can see any differences... (sozzles I'm in my jim jams and am sans makeup but we gotta be realz...)
