What is Yasmin and How to Take It
Yasmin birth control pill is available only by prescription. It is the brand name, and Yasmin’s birth control ingredients include drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol.
These combination pills contain a combination of female sex hormones that work by preventing the process of ovulation. In order to effectively prevent pregnancy, Yasmin birth control pills must be taken once daily at the same time daily.
Yasmin birth control ingredients include drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol, which are synthetic hormones. Yasmin birth control is a popular option amongst women who want to take oral contraceptives to prevent pregnancy. The Yasmin dosage depends on the person’s health condition and can vary from person to person. These hormones work in conjunction, preventing the release of the egg from the ovaries, hence stopping ovulation from occurring. Yasmin oral contraceptives cause changes to the cervical mucus and uterine lining; both stop the sperm from reaching the egg, preventing fertilization and implantation.
Yasmin is available as a 28-day pack. There are 21 active tablets that contain 3 mg of drospirenone and 0.03 mg of ethinyl estradiol. The 7 inactive or placebo tablets contain no hormones. While taking the last 7 pills, you should get your period. Yasmin should be taken orally at the same time each day. The pill can be taken with or without food. You should take the pills in the correct order and make your way towards the end of the pack. Take one pill as instructed; you can start your new pack after taking your last inactive pill. If you miss your period, inform your doctor. If you have just started your very first pack, you will require an additional non-hormonal form of birth control, such as using condoms for the first week. Birth control has low failure rates if taken correctly.
Important Information About Yasmin
Getting Yasmin birth control over the counter is not an option due to certain risks associated while taking the medication:
- Before starting the medication, inform your doctor if you have a history of hypertension, diabetes, stroke, migraines, blood clots, blood clotting disorders, breast cancer, high cholesterol, depression, gallbladder problems, heart problems, jaundice during pregnancy, kidney disease, liver disease, thyroid problems etc.
- In comparison to other oral contraceptives, since Yasmin contains the hormone (drospirenone), that may slightly increase the chance of developing blood clots. But this rarely occurs in a healthy person.
- It is essential to know that most women experience light bleeding or spotting while taking the pills. They may also experience nausea or an upset stomach while taking the first few packs. Missing pills can lead to spotting as well.
- If you throw up within 4 hours after you take your pill, you should follow the instructions on what to do if you miss the pills. Moreover, if you have diarrhoea and or are on certain antibiotics, the effectiveness of Apri may be reduced.
- If you are not regular when it comes to taking pills or this form of birth control does not work for you, talk to your doctor about other methods, including Depo, patches and implants.
- Yasmin has several drug interactions. The main interactions are with drugs prescribed to treat hepatitis C or HIV, antidepressants including Zoloft, antibiotics and antifungal medicine.
- It is considered safe to drink while on Yasmin. Although, as with other forms of birth control pills, Yasmin does not offer protection against sexually transmitted infections.
