What is Yaz and How to Take It

Yaz birth control pill is available only by prescription. It is the brand name, and Yaz ingredients include drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol. Yaz is very similar to the birth control Yasmin, but it contains a different estradiol dosage.

These combination pills contain a combination of female sex hormones that work by preventing the process of ovulation. In order to effectively prevent pregnancy, Yaz birth control pills must be taken once daily at the same time.

Yaz birth control ingredients include drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol, which are synthetic hormones. Yaz birth control is a popular option amongst women who want to take oral contraceptives to prevent pregnancy. The Yaz 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. Yaz oral contraceptives cause changes to the cervical mucus and uterine lining; both stop the sperm from reaching the egg, preventing fertilization and implantation.

Yaz is available as a 28-day pack. There are 24 active tablets that contain 3 mg of drospirenone and 0.02 mg of ethinyl estradiol. The 4 inactive or placebo tablets contain no hormones. While taking the last 4 pills, you should get your period. Yaz 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 Yaz

Getting Yaz birth control over the counter is not an option due to certain risks associated while taking the medication:

  • Common side effects of Yaz medication include headache, spotting, breast tenderness and nausea. 
  • 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 Yaz 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 Yaz 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.
  • Yaz has several drug interactions. The main interactions are with drugs prescribed to treat hepatitis C or HIV, phenytoin, carbamazepine, rifampin, topiramate, barbiturates, bosentan, felbamate, griseofulvin, oxcarbazepine and St. John’s wort.
  • It is considered safe to drink while on Yaz. Although, as with other forms of birth control pills, Yaz does not offer protection against sexually transmitted infections.
  • Yaz can increase the amount of potassium in your blood. Therefore potassium level monitoring may be required if you are on potassium-sparing drugs as well as Yaz.
