What is Yasmin?
Yasmin, from the pharmaceutical company Bayer, is a hormonal contraceptive pill and one of the most well-known contraceptives
on the market. It is particularly well-tolerated by young women and girls starting to take contraceptive pills for the first time.
Effect and dosage of the contraceptive pill Yasmin
The reliable combination pill consists of two hormones: drospirenone, a substance related to the female sex hormone progestin, and ethinyl estradiol, a substance related to the female sex hormone estrogen. The orla contraceptive pill is a single-phase pill, containing 21 pills with the same dosage per pack. After the 21 days, there is a break of 7 days in which menstruation takes place. After this period, a new pack is started.
How does Yasmin work?
In the female, the synthetic progestin (drospirenone) inhibits the growth of the uterus lining of pregnancy, stops ovulation and the transport of sperm. Ethinyl estradiol inhibits ovulation and suppresses the hormone which induces ovulation. More specifically, this substance prevents the pituitary gland forming the hormone gonadotropin, which normally triggers ovulation. Ethinyl estradiol deceives the female body by simulating the condition of a pregnancy, in which the gonadotropin hormone is naturally inhibited.
Yasmin side effect
Conventional oral contraceptives can cause women to put on weight, but Yasmin has been shown to increase weight by way of ideal hormonal dosing. In addition, the estrogen, ethinyl estradiol, is designed to be well-absorbed by the female body. This reduces side-effects while still providing the same safety as conventional combination pills. Below are common Yasmin pill side-effects:
⇒ Inter-menstrual bleeding
⇒ Breast tenderness
⇒ Vaginal mycosis
⇒ Lowered blood pressure or high blood pressure
⇒ Change in libido
⇒ Fluid secretions of the mammary glands
⇒ Hearing loss
When taking Yasmin, special attention should be paid to persistent or frequent leg pain or swollen legs. Leg pain, changes in the skin color of the leg, and unexplained shortness of breath, might indicate an obstruction of the veins or arteries.
If any of the above or other side effects occur, tell your doctor immediately. Read the leaflet for detailed information on the side effects, contraindications and drug interactions.

Do not order Yasmin unless you have a prescription from a certified physician, who has previously verified that you are suitable for the medicine.
Is Yasmin suitable for all women?
This pill is suitable for young adult women due to its high tolerability.
