What is Yasmin?

Yasmin is a sub-50 category contraceptive pill. This combination pill contains two types of hormones: ethinyl estradiol (estrogen) and drospirenone (progestin). Yasmin prevents ovulation, prevents the egg from being released, and modifies the structure of the lining of the cervix, making pregnancy practically impossible. Yasmin is only sold by prescription. Yasmin is a reliable method of contraception if used well. It is also prescribed against menstrual complaints, such as abdominal pain and excessive bleeding. When taking this pill, the bleeding that occurs is from deprivation, less abundant than regular menstruation.

How does it work?

Yasmin's contraceptive effect is based on the interaction of various factors, the most important of which is the inhibition of ovulation and changes in the endometrium. Yasmin is a combined oral contraceptive consisting of ethinyl estradiol and the progestogen drospirenone. In therapeutic doses, drospirenone also has antiandrogenic properties and mild antimineralocorticoids. Lacks any type of estrogenic, glucocorticoid, or antiglucocorticoid. This gives drospirenone a pharmacological profile very similar to that of natural progesterone.

Data from clinical studies indicate that the mild antimineralocorticoid properties of Yasmin produce a light antimineralocorticoid effect.

What are the benefits of taking it?

Yasmin is a contraceptive pill. It is a monophasic pill that contains the artificial version of two natural hormones that occur in a woman's body, progesterone, and estrogen. These agents act by inhibiting the receptivity of the reproductive system to fertilization.

How do I use it and its dosage?

Take one Yasmin birth control pill every day, with some water if necessary. You can take the tablets with or without food, but every day at approximately the same time.

The blister contains 21 tablets. The day of the week on which it should be taken is printed next to each tablet. If, for example, you start on a Wednesday, take a tablet with "WED" next to it. Follow the direction of the arrow on the blister until you have taken all 21 tablets.

Then you should not take any tablets for 7 days. Throughout these 7 days when no tablets are taken (called a rest week), menstruation should take place. Menstruation, which may also be called withdrawal bleeding, usually begins on the 2nd or 3rd day of the rest week.

On the 8th day after taking the last Yasmin tablet (that is, after the 7-day rest period), you should start with the next blister pack, even if the bleeding has not yet finished. This means that you should start each blister on the same day of the week and that menstruation should take place on the same days each month.

If you use the Yasmin oral contraceptive pill in this way, you are also protected from pregnancy during the 7 days when you do not take any tablets
