Has anyone got any experience on yasmin pill?

I had a baby nearly 18 months ago and used to take Mycrogynon 30. when I stopped bfeeding a few months ago I had a Mirena coil inserted. I hated it and had about three people ask me if I was pregnant due to the bloating i experienced. I had that taken out and went on the Mycrogynon 30 again. However, i find that every month before my period I get swollen gums or mouth ulcers and a painful jaw. I've been to the dentist and have no problems. I went to the doctors last week and she recommended switching pill to the Yasmin.
However, I've read some things about it and wondered if anyone who uses it has experienced problems, ie nausea, depression etc. I'd be v grateful, thanks

I loved Yasmin! Obviously only personal experience but i lost weight, had better skin and (interestingly) was less paranoid than when i was on Mycrogynon.I think Yasmin is quite a bit more expensive too.

Thank you for the reassurance. I guess if you read all the side effects on all of them, they are almost the same. My sister in law also had a good experience from it.

I'm on Yasminelle (sp?) which is the sister of Yasmin, but is supposed to cause you less bloating etc than Yasmin. Have been on it for years, as has my friend with NO side effects at all.
