|Drospirenone and Ethinyloestradiol
Yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) prevents ovulation (the release of an egg from an ovary) and also cause changes in your cervical and uterine lining, making it harder for sperm to reach the uterus and harder for a fertilized egg to attach to the uterus.
YASMIN® 3 mg/30
Yasmin is a combination oral contraceptive pill that contains two active ingredients: drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol. It is primarily used to prevent pregnancy by inhibiting ovulation (the release of an egg from the ovaries), thickening the cervical mucus to prevent sperm from reaching the egg, and thinning the lining of the uterus to prevent implantation of a fertilized egg.
Drospirenone is a synthetic form of the hormone progesterone, which has anti-androgenic properties that can help to reduce the symptoms of conditions such as acne and hirsutism (excessive hair growth). Ethinyl estradiol is a synthetic form of the hormone estrogen, which helps to regulate the menstrual cycle and support the development of the uterine lining.
Yasmin is typically taken once daily at the same time each day, and the dosage and duration of treatment will depend on the individual’s response to the medication. It is important to follow the dosing instructions provided by a healthcare professional when taking Yasmin, and to be aware of the potential side effects associated with this medication, such as nausea, headache, and changes in mood or libido. It is also important to note that Yasmin does not protect against sexually transmitted infections (STIs), and additional methods of contraception should be used to prevent the transmission of STIs.
