hi, thanks for posting,
yasmin is a hormonal contraceptive, which is also given in pcos
since it consists of hormones ,they are metabolised by liver. itchy skin may indicate underlying liver problem so it is advisable to contact your doctor and inform about it.
get liver function test done, if normal then itching may be due to other dermatological cause that may be diagnosed and treated accordingly.

hope this helps you
