YAZZ 0.02mg/3mg – Drospirenone
YAZZ 0.02mg/3mg is a combined hormonal contraceptive pill used to prevent pregnancy. It contains two active ingredients: drospirenone (3mg) and ethinyl estradiol (0.02mg).
Drospirenone is a synthetic progestin that works by suppressing ovulation (the release of an egg from the ovary) and by thickening the cervical mucus, which makes it difficult for sperm to reach and fertilize an egg. Ethinyl estradiol is a synthetic form of estrogen that helps regulate the menstrual cycle and enhances the effectiveness of drospirenone in preventing pregnancy.
YAZZ 0.02mg/3mg is typically taken orally, once a day at the same time each day, for 21 consecutive days followed by a 7-day pill-free interval. During the 7-day pill-free interval, a withdrawal bleed usually occurs.
As with all medications, YAZZ 0.02mg/3mg may cause side effects in some people. Common side effects may include nausea, headache, breast tenderness, and irregular menstrual bleeding. It may also increase the risk of blood clots, stroke, and heart attack in some people, particularly those with a history of these conditions. It is important to discuss any concerns or questions with your healthcare provider before starting this medication.
