26 Apr 2012 Despite initial concerns about the safety of using yasmin, I took the drug for three months and was pleased with the positive effects that yasmin had on my skin, hair and body generally. I was therefore keen to continue being prescribed the drug. However during the first two months of taking yasmin I experienced intermittent leg cramps, which I assumed was attributable to physical activity. By the third month I experienced severe cramping and pain in my left leg and was diagnosed with a DVT in my left thigh. I have since discontinued yasmin. According to the drug leaflet produced by Bayer Schering Pharma, "of 100,000 women taking a Pill like yasmin, 30-40 may have a blood clot in a year, the exact number is unknown". Following my diagnosis of DVT and based on the opinions of medical professionals, I feel that this figure is probably greatly underestimated.
