More information about Yasmin
Yasmin is an FDA-approved combination birth control pill. It contains synthetic versions of estrogen and progestin and is 99% effective when used correctly.
Yasmin also has a number of additional benefits such as reducing acne breakouts, regulating your menstrual period, and easing premenstrual symptoms such as cramping, pain, and mood swings.
Yasmin and Yaz are both brand name birth control pills manufactured by Bayer Healthcare. They contain the same active ingredients (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol), but Yaz contains slightly less ethinyl estradiol than Yasmin.
Both are approved by the Food and Drug Administration to prevent pregnancy, but Yaz is also approved to treat moderate acne and premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), a severe form of premenstrual syndrome, on its own.
Yasmin contains drospirenone, a type of progestin, and ethinyl estradiol, a type of estrogen. These active ingredients work together to prevent the ovaries from releasing an egg, thicken the cervical mucus to prevent sperm from reaching the womb, and thin the lining of the womb so that any egg released would be unable to attach itself into the uterine wall.
For immediate protection, take your first tablet on the first day of your menstrual cycle. If you start Yasmin at any other time during your cycle, you will need to use a back-up contraception method such as condoms and spermicide for the next seven days. Take each tablet at the same time every day.
Tablets can be taken with or without food, and should be kept at room temperature.
The next steps depend on how many pills you have missed. If you have only missed one pill, take it as soon as possible and you will still be protected against pregnancy. If you miss more than one, you will need to use an additional contraception method, such as a condom, for the next seven days.
Side effects are a possibility of most prescription medications, including birth control pills. Yasmin is generally well tolerated, with many side effects being mild in nature and short-lived.

Yasmin is intended for women who are sexually active and require an effective contraception method.
