Yasmin general information

What is Yasmin used for?

Yasmin is a low dose combined oral contraceptive pill and is used as an effective means of birth control to prevent unwanted pregnancy. Yasmin contraceptive pills contain a combination of two hormones at low doses in a single pill. Each pack of Yasmin contains one month’s supply of pills of which there are 21 hormone-containing pills and 7 placebo (non-hormonal) pills, to allow each monthly cycle to end with a withdrawal bleed. When using Yasmin for contraception, you will probably find that your periods become regular and you may also experience lighter, less painful menstruation and an improvement in pre-menstrual symptoms, like bloating, swelling or weight gain related to fluid retention, also improvement in acne and reductions in greasiness of the skin and hair.

How does Yasmin work?

Yasmin contraceptive pills contain a combination of two hormones, ethinyloestradiol (30mcg), a synthetic oestrogen, and drospirenone (3mg), a synthetic progestogen, which work together to protect against pregnancy. Preparation for pregnancy depends on a complex interaction between the female sex hormones produced by the ovaries; oestrogen, which stimulates ovulation, and progesterone which prepares the endometrium (lining of the uterus) for implantation of an embryo, as well as other regulating hormones, produced by the hypothalamus in the brain and the pituitary gland. Yasmin combined hormonal contraception works by disrupting the normal menstrual, preventing egg maturation and suppressing ovulation, as well as preventing development of the endometrium, so that a fertilised egg would not be able to implant and grow. Another contraceptive action of Yasmin pills is that the cervical mucus, which normally changes consistency at ovulation to become thinner, remains thick, forming a physical barrier to sperm. Drospirenone, the progestagen component of Yasmin is one of the newer synthetic progestogens and has very little androgenic activity, unlike natural progesterone and therefore has a beneficial effect on androgen-related skin disorders such as acne and hirsutism (unwanted hair).

Taking Yasmin as a contraceptive pill

How should Yasmin be taken?

When you have finished one pack, start a new one the next day. If you have gastrointestinal problems like vomiting or diarrhoea within 3-4 hours of taking your hormonal pill, this is the same as missing a pill and you should take other contraceptive precautions for the next 7 days.

Missed dose of Yasmin

If you miss a dose of Yasmin follow these guidelines to help you decide what to do:

Weeks 1 to 3 (yellow hormonal pills)
  • If you are less than 12 hours late in taking your pill, take it as soon as you remember and take the next one at your usual time. You are still protected against pregnancy.
  • If you are more than 12 hours late in taking your pill, take the last tablet as soon as you remember and take the next one at your normal time, which may mean taking 2 tablets in one day. Contraceptive protection may be reduced and you are at risk of becoming pregnant, unless you take other contraceptive precautions for the next 7 days.
Week 4 (white non-hormonal pills)

Take the next pill as usual and discard the missed pill. You are not at risk of becoming pregnant.
