Grinding teeth with Yasmin
Suggestion 1: Take a new pill for at least 3 months before making a recommendation. Many symptoms you have at the beginning may fade. They are frequently brought on by switching the pill, not the new pill itself. Suggestion 2: Was there anything else going on that may have influenced grinding your teeth and vivid dreams? New foods? Weather patterns? Stress? Did you change your routing before going to bed?
