What is Yasmin for?
Please note: You can buy contraceptive pills such as Yasmin if you have already been prescribed it by your own doctor and need a repeat supply.
Please note: You can buy Yasmin online if you have had a face-to-face pill check with your own doctor in the last year and there were no issues.
Please note: We do not prescribe Yasmin if you are aged 50 or above. Your doctor may prescribe you a mini-pill such as Cerazette once you reach this age.
Yasmin is a combined oral pill used to prevent pregnancy in females. Each Yasmin tablet contains a small amount of two different female hormones – drospirenone (a kind of progesterone) and ethinylestradiol (a kind of oestrogen).
Yasmin is also prescribed to women suffering from problems with particularly heavy, painful or irregular periods. Yasmin usually results in lighter, less painful and more regular menstrual bleeding. Moreover, the pill may also help to decrease the risk of ovarian cysts.
It is important to remember that Yasmin does not protect you or your partner against sexually transmitted infections (STIs) such as HIV, chlamydia, or gonorrhoea, so you cannot buy Yasmin online for STI treatment, and will need barrier methods as well to prevent against STIs.
How does Yasmin work?
Yasmin prevents ovulation (the release of an egg from an ovary) and also cause changes in your cervical and uterine lining, making it harder for sperm to reach the uterus and harder for a fertilized egg to attach to the uterus. This then stops a woman becoming pregnant. You may be suitable to buy Yasmin tablets online from our UK pharmacy if you have already been prescribed this medication from your own doctor and are under the age of 50.
How to take Yasmin
Each strip of Yasmin contains 21 tablets – 3 weeks continuous supply (followed by 7-day break)
Take your pill each day at about the same time. Swallow the tablet whole, with water.
- Start by taking a pill marked with the correct day of the week.
- Follow the direction of the arrows on the strip. Take 1 pill each day, until you have finished all 21 pills.
- Swallow each pill whole, with water if necessary. Do not chew the pill.
- You will then have 7 days where you take no pills at all after you have taken all 21 pills in the strip.
- So, if you take the last pill of one pack on a Friday, you will take the first pill of your next pack on the Saturday of the following week.
Within a few days of taking the last pill from the strip, you should have a withdrawal bleed like a period. This bleed may not have finished when it is time to start your next strip of pills.
The manufacturer states that you don’t need to use extra contraception during these 7 pill-free days – as long as you have taken your pills correctly and start the next strip of pills on time.
Then start your next strip.
Begin your next strip of Yasmin after the 7 pill-free days – even if you are still bleeding. Always start the new strip on time.
During the 7 pill-free days, when you take no tablets, bleeding should begin (‘withdrawal bleeding’). This usually starts on the 2nd or 3rd day after the last tablet of Yasmin. Start the following strip after the last day of the 7 pill-free days, irrespective of your bleeding stopping or not.
Always read the Patient Information Leaflet (PIL) before taking this or any other medication. Furthermore, your own doctor or a pharmacist can give you important advice and answer any queries – especially if you are still unsure how to take your medication or have any concerns.
What are the possible side effects of Yasmin?
Side effects are rare, and most people don’t get any. Possible side effects may vary from one person to the next, as with any medication. You should always read the manufacturer’s Patient Information Leaflet (PIL) before taking this or any other medication.
This will give you important instructions on how and when to take the medication, as well as any possible side effects of the drug.
