This treatment is a combined contraceptive pill, meaning it contains synthetic forms of both oestrogen and progestogen. The presence of both these hormones make the Yasmin pill one of the most effective contraceptive methods available. It also means that it is more effective than some of the other progestogen only mini pills that are available.
The two active ingredients are synthetic versions of the naturally occurring female sex hormones, oestrogen and progestogen. Together, they work to stop conception by overriding the menstrual cycle. This is achieved by stopping an egg from being released for fertilisation, thickening the cervical mucus to prevent sperm from entering the womb and altering the consistency of the lining of the womb so an egg can not implant itself there.
As a combined contraceptive pill, Yasmin is one of the most effective contraceptive treatments available. The presence of both oestrogen and progestogen make this treatment more effective than some of the progestogen only treatment and it still provides over 99% protection against pregnancy.
This medication also has a reduced risk of side effects when compared to some of the other combined contraceptive pills available. Yasmin does not usually cause weight gain, which can be a symptom of some of the other contraceptive treatments. This makes this option preferable to some women.
Yasmin is known to benefit women who are experiencing particularly heavy or painful bleeds. Taking the Yasmin pill can result in lighter and more regular bleeds, which makes this treatment a suitable contraceptive option for women experiencing this. You should consult with your doctor before deciding to use Yasmin as a treatment for heavy or painful bleeding.
Yasmin is suitable for women over the age of 18 who want to use a hormonal contraceptive method. It can also be considered by women who are suffering from painful or heavy bleeding and who want a contraceptive method that can help alleviate this.
As with all prescription medication, this treatment may not be suitable for some women, based on their previous medical history or medications that they are currently taking. The Yasmin pill should not be used by women who are either pregnant or breastfeeding. It may also not be suitable for women who have a history of blood clots, breast cancer, cervical cancer, diabetes or circulatory problems.

As this is a monophasic pill, the same level of hormones is contained in each Yasmin pill. You will need to take one tablet per day for 21 days, which is then followed by a seven-day break. You may experience a withdrawal bleed during this break period but you will still be fully covered. Once the seven-day period ends, you start the 21-day cycle again, even if you are still experiencing the withdrawal bleed. Each Yasmin pill will be calendar marked, which is designed to help you keep track of your treatment.
If you take your first Yasmin pill on the first day of your period, you will have immediate protection. You can start the treatment between day two and day five of your period, but you will need to use a barrier contraceptive method for seven days after your first dose. There are full instructions on what to do if you miss a pill in the patient leaflet. You will be provided this with your medication and you can also download it at any point from our website.
