Yasmin is a combined oral contraceptive that contains two synthetic hormones called drospirenone and ethinylestradiol.
These synthetic hormones are similar to the naturally produced female sex hormones oestrogen and progesterone in the body.
Ethinylestradiol acts similarly to oestrogen by thinning the mucous lining of the uterus to prevent the implantation of an egg cell.
Meanwhile, drospirenone inhibits ovulation (the production and release of an egg from the ovaries) by tricking the body into thinking ovulation has already occurred. Moreover, this hormone thickens the vaginal fluids in the cervix, making it harder for sperm cells to travel into the uterus.
Both hormones work in combination to provide effective protection from unwanted pregnancy.
Yasmin is packaged in strips of 21 pills. Each pill is marked with the day of the week that you should take it on.
Take each pill at the same time on each indicated day, following the arrows until the strip is finished.
After finishing a strip, you should take a 7-day break where you take no pills. During this time, you should experience a withdrawal bleed. You will still be protected against pregnancy during these 7 days as long as you have taken the 21 pills previously as prescribed.
Start your new strip after the 7-day pill-free period, regardless of whether your withdrawal bleeding has stopped. You should start the new strip the day after the 7-day break ends.
If you miss one Yasmin birth control pill, take the pill as soon as you remember - even if it means taking two pills in one day. Continue taking the rest of your pills as usual. You will still be protected from pregnancy.
If you miss more than one pill, you may not be protected from pregnancy if you have unprotected sex. You should use additional contraception, such as condoms, for the next 7 days to ensure you are protected.
You can find more information about what to do if you miss one or more pills in the patient information leaflet supplied with your pill pack.
If you take several Yasmin pills at once, you may feel sick, vomit or experience bleeding from the vagina.
If you have taken more Yasmin pills than you should, speak to your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
Before you begin taking Yasmin, you should familiarise yourself with the information found in the patient information leaflet.
The patient information leaflet contains important information regarding the safety of Yasmin, including a complete list of associated side effects, instructions on how to store the pills and what to do in the event of an allergic reaction.

No contraception is 100% reliable. If you are concerned, use extra protection such as condoms to prevent unwanted pregnancies. If you are ill or taking antibiotics, this may reduce the effectiveness of the pill. Speak to your doctor for further advice on what to do in such situations.
You may experience bleeding outside the 7-day pill free break (when you should normally experience a withdrawal bleed) during the first few months of taking Yasmin for the first time. If, however, the bleeding does not subside after a couple of months of treatment, speak to your doctor for advice.
If you take the first pill in the pack on the first day of your period, you should be immediately protect from pregnancy. If you take the first pill on any other day in your cycle, additional protection such as condoms should be used for the first 7 days to reduce the risk of pregnancy.
