I am about to go on Yasmine. Did you gain weight from Yasmine and do you where contacts? One of the side effects that I am worried about is the pill may cause contact wearers problems and blood clotting behind the eyes. I am a nervous wreck to take it this Sunday .

Your concerns about blood clotting and problems with contacts are the same for all birth control options, not just Yasmin--just wanted to clarify that. These side effects are rare, but the healthier you are, the less of a risk there is. That's why women who the the pill should not smoke. As for contacts, you can always try different brands. That's what I did when I went on Accutane--I got a different type with a lower water content so my eyes didn't have to work as hard to keep them wet. And on Sunday, don't expect a marked difference... the side effects you're worried about would develop over time.
