Yasmin birth control pills are a combination of hormonal birth control pills used to prevent pregnancy. The active ingredients in Yasmin are drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol. Like other birth control pills, Yasmin works by preventing ovulation. If you start taking it later, use extra contraception for at least seven days until Yasmin starts to work. You should only take it after the first day of your period if you are sure you could not already be pregnant. Yasmin (ethinyl estradiol/drospirenone) is a combination of two female hormones prescribed as a 28-day oral contraceptive pill used to prevent pregnancy. Yasmin works by inhibiting the release of an egg during the menstrual cycle.
Take one tablet by mouth at the same time every day. The failure rate may increase when pills are missed or taken incorrectly. To achieve maximum contraceptive effectiveness, Yasmin must be taken as directed, in the order directed on the blister pack. Single missed pills should be taken as soon as remembered. Yasmin is a prescription birth control medication used to prevent pregnancy. This medication may be prescribed for other uses. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for more information.
