How does Yasmin work?
The two active ingredients in Yasmin contraceptive pill are ethinylestradiol and drospirenone. These ingredients are copies of natural versions of female hormones, oestrogen and progesterone. The hormone levels vary through the month when women have their normal menstrual cycle. The hormones cause the ovaries to release an egg, a process known as ovulation and prepare the lining of the womb for possible pregnancy.
If a females egg hasn’t been fertilized at the end of the cycle, the hormones will drop and you will experience your monthly menstrual bleed (period). Hormones will also increase the texture of mucus on the opening of your womb making it harder for sperm to reach an egg, which may result in pregnancy. By taking yasmin contraceptive pill on a daily basis it will reduce the risk of becoming pregnant.
How do I take Yasmin?
It’s best to start taking the Yasmin contraceptive pill on the first day of your period. You can also commence during your period however it’s recommended to use another form of protection during this time to make sure you are completely covered from unwanted pregnancy.
Yasmin comes in strips of 21 tablets marked with the days of the week to help you to take the pill daily. You follow the calendar packet for 21 days followed by a break for 7 days. During the 7 day break you will have your period and then continue on a new strip after the 7 days even if you still have a menstrual bleed. It’s important to remember to resume taking the pills after you 7-day rest even if you still have a small bleed. This is to make sure you are covered by contraception. During the 7 day rest you will also be protected against pregnancy provided you followed directions and have taken the pills correctly.
