Hi. Thanks for asking in Healthcare Magic. Yasmin is a combined OCP with a newer progesterone drospirenone whereas Femodene contains gestodene. Both are equally effective. Drospirenone is a newer progesterone and is said to be devoid of the androgenic effects of other progesterones. However the acceptability of a OCP varies among different individuals. Since you had been on hormonal oral contraceptives for a long time (5 years), you can opt for IUD copper T which is non hormonal. The other option is sub dermal implants that contain progesterone. You should consult your gynecologist regarding this as he/she can decide the most suitable option for you. I hope this is useful to you.
