Yasmin Contraceptive Pill

Dosage

What is Yasmin?

Yasmin is a commonly prescribed contraceptive pill. It is a combined pill, which means that it contains two hormones. The hormones in Yasmin are ethinylestradiol and drospirenone and they are synthetic versions of sex hormones which naturally occur in the body. 

Like all contraceptive pills, Yasmin is a highly effective contraceptive. In order to get the best contraceptive protection while using Yasmin it is important that you take it exactly as advised.

How does Yasmin work?

Yasmin works in the same way as most combined contraceptive pills. It protects you from pregnancy in three ways. 

By thickening the mucus at the entrance to the womb, Yasmin makes it unlikely that sperm will be able to reach an egg.

The hormones in Yasmin also cause a change to the lining of the womb, which makes it harder for a fertilised egg to implant in your womb and develop.

Your ovaries release an egg every month, a process which is called ovulation. Yasmin stops ovulation and therefore prevents that you can get pregnant.

How is Yasmin taken?

Yasmin needs to be taken at the same time everyday in order for it to work effectively. If you are taking Yasmin for the first time, you can decide which time you would like to take your pill and use the same time from then. The tablet must be swallowed with a glass of water. The days of the week are printed on the side of the blister pack, which helps you keep track of which pill to take.

Why are there 21 tablets in a pack?

There is a one week break after 3 weeks of taking the pill. During this week long period, you are still protected from pregnancy and you will usually experience a light and less period pain. After the week is over, you need to start taking the tablets again.

What happens if I forget to take my pill?

If you forget to take Yasmin until over 12 hours after the correct time, it is advised that you use protection during the 7 days that follow. Whether this is necessary depends on your menstrual cycle. The patient leaflet provided with your medication includes detailed instructions on what to do in this case. If you forget to take Yasmin in the third week, you should skip your break and start the next blister pack straight away.

What if I take more than I should?

Yasmin has not been reported to cause serious harm as the result of an accidental overdose. However, you might experience nausea or vomiting while young girls might experience unusual bleeding. If you have taken more Yasmin than you should, consult a pharmacist or doctor.

Ingredients

Yasmin contains two active ingredients, Ethinylestradiol and Drospirenone.  Each tablet contains 0.03mg Ethinylestradiol and 3.0mg Drospirenone.

  • your liver function is not normal

  • have or have had a form of cancer affecting your breasts or genitals

  • are experiencing unexplained bleeding from the vagina

Drug interactions

Most prescription medications can interact with other medications. Yasmin is no different, which is why it is important that you let your doctor know if you are currently taking any other medications.

It is also important that you let your doctor know that you are on the pill when you are prescribed a medication for a different condition.

Some medications can increase your blood level of the hormones in Yasmin when taken in combination, others may make it less effective. It is also possible for medications which interact with Yasmin to increase your risk of unwanted side effects, such as unexpected bleeding.

Your doctor will check whether you can continue using Yasmin and whether you need to take additional precautions such as using a condom to be protected from pregnancy.

  • Medications which interact with Yasmin include:
  • Some treatments for epilepsy
  • Some medications used in the treatment of HIV and hepatitis C
  • The tuberculosis medication rifampicin
  • Some antifungal medications (such as griseofulvin and ketoconazole)
  • Some medications used to treat arthritis
  • Bosentan (used to treat hypertension in the blood vessels of the lungs)
  • Medications which contain ciclosporin
  • Tizanidine (used to treat muscle cramps and pain)
