I am not sure if I am posting this in the correct forum but I need a general answer. I just started taking Ortho Low (week 2 started yesterday) and I feel completely disgusting! I was on the Patch for 3 years prior and never experienced such terrible nausea. But I wouldn't go back to the Patch after all the controversy around it.
I was thinking about switching to Yasmin.
I was curious if anyone is on either one of these birth control pills and what their experiences have been with them.
Also when do you find it is the best time of day to take the Pill. I am taking it at 9pm (in hopes to sleep through any of the side effects) but last night I couldn't even relax because of the nausea.
Any thoughts on Yasmin / Ortho Low will be helpful.

Asking medical advice is not allowed on allnurses.com, however, I see no real problem asking others' experiences regarding using a medication. It's a rather gray area, so I did not close the thread.
I will, however, on behalf of allnurses.com, strongly caution the OP she should visit her personal health care provider for *BEST* advice regarding oral contraceptive use and other medical advice. Your personal physician/NP is privvy to apropos medical history and conditions that affect the choices best made in your situation.
I will also ask those answering just relay your personal experiences with the medications, no more. Thanks for understanding.
To the Original Poster: Good luck finding what works best for you.
