My mom think that my mood swings are from taking Yasin. Which i dont agree with. So she brought home Trivora for me to start taking in the middle of the week.

When you want to switch pills, it's really important to talk about it with your gynecologist or sexual healthcare provider and get their recommendations. Your mom should not force you to switch pills.
Usually when someone changes pills, they would do so at the end of a cycle or pack. Changing in the middle of a pack increases the risk of breakthrough bleeding (bleeding between your withdrawal bleeds) and means that you can't rely on it as a method of birth control for at least one month.
It's a good idea for you to continue taking Yasmin (unless your side effects are very severe) until you can go and discuss changing pills with your gynecologist.
