What is Yacella?

Yacella is a combined contraceptive pill. It contains two active ingredients called ethinyl estradiol and drospirenone, which are synthetic versions of estrogen and progesterone, respectively. Essentially, these additional hormones work by preventing ovulation from occurring (this means that no egg is released from the uterus for fertilization). A Yacella course is taken for 21 days.

How does it work?

The Yacella contraceptive pill works by stopping sperm from reaching the egg (a process known as fertilization).

The hormones in the pill do not allow ovulation to occur. If there is no ovulation, there will be no egg that the sperm can fertilize and so pregnancy does not occur. Also, the hormones in the birth control pill make the mucus from your cervix (the lower part of your uterus) thicken and block the sperm from reaching the egg, like a security guard who doesn't let anything pass.

What are the benefits of taking it?

Yacella is a contraceptive and is used to prevent pregnancy. Each tablet contains a small amount of two different female hormones, called drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol. Contraceptives that contain two hormones are called combined contraceptives.

How do I use it and its dosage?

No form of contraception has a 100% guaranteed success rate. However, if you take Yacella exactly as prescribed, it will be 99% effective.

In terms of contraception, 99% effectiveness means that of every 100 women who take a contraceptive method for a year, only one will become pregnant.

  • Take one Yacella pill once a day for 21 consecutive days.
  • You must take the pill at the same time every day.
  • Each pill is specifically marked with the corresponding day of the week it is to be taken.
  • You can take the pill with or without food.
  • Once you have taken Yacella for 21 consecutive days, stop taking it for the next 7 days.
  • After this 7-day abstention time, start the course again the next day.
  • If you forget to take a pill, take the missed one as soon as you remember.

If you are more than 12 hours late taking a forgotten pill, you should use additional protection, such as a condom, for the next 7 days.
