Yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol)

What is Yasmin?

Yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) is a combined contraceptive pill containing female hormones that prevents ovulation (the release of eggs from the ovary).

It is a combination of two estrogens (ethinyl estradiol) and progestin (drospirenone). This product is used to prevent pregnancy. This is mainly done by preventing the egg release (ovulation) during your menstrual period. It also makes the vaginal fluid thicker to prevent the sperm from reaching the egg (fertilization) and uterine lining (uterus) to prevent egg grafting. If a spawn egg does not bind to the uterus, it passes through the body.

Yasmin tablet (drospirenone / ethinyl estradiol) covers an oral contraceptive containing 28 pills.

In addition to preventing pregnancy, birth control pills may reduce regular periods, reduce bleeding and painful periods, and reduce the risk of ovarian cysts.

Using this medication does not protect you or your partner against sexually transmitted diseases (such as HIV, Gonorrhea, Chlamydia).

Yasmin also causes a change in cervical and uterine laceration, making the sperm more difficult to reach the uterus and connecting the fertilized egg to the uterus.

Yasmin is used as contraception to prevent pregnancy.

How to use Yasmin?

Dosage of Yasmin

Your pill contains 21 pills with active medicine (with hormone). Reminder tablets (without hormone) may also contain 7 cases at the end of the pack. Take an active pill (with hormone) once a day for 21 days in a row. If you are using a product of 28 tablets, after taking the last active pill, place a tablet of the tablet once a day for 7 days in a row. If you use a 21 tablet product, do not take the tablets for 7 days, unless otherwise directed by the doctor. You should usually take your course within 3 days of the last active pill in the cycle. After you have activated the last reminder pill in the package or have activated for 7 days without taking an active pill, start the next day with your new course or not.
