Frequently Asked Questions
What is Yasmin and how does it work?
Yasmin is a combination birth control pill containing estrogen and progestin that is primarily used to prevent pregnancy. It works by disabling ovulation during the user’s menstrual cycle, and preventing the sperm from reaching the egg.
Besides preventing pregnancy, Yasmin can be used to regulate periods, decrease blood loss and painful periods, as well as reduce the chance of developing ovarian cysts. Yasmin does not prevent STIs/STDs from transmitting.
How do you use Yasmin?
Yasmin is available in a 21-day tablet pack or 28-day tablet pack and should be taken by mouth as directed by a doctor, with or without food. Start with the first tablet and take them in the correct order at the same time, daily.
21-day pack: Take the 21 pills in order, daily. After taking all 21 pills, wait 7 days before starting the next one.
28-day pack: After taking the first 21 pills with active medication, continue taking the last 7 at the same rate. Start a new pack the next day after finishing your current pack whether or not you have your period.
If you did not get your period, consult your doctor. If this is your first time using this medication, use a different form of non-hormonal birth control on the first week.
What are the side effects and risks of Yasmin?
Some common side effects when using Yasmin include:
- Nausea, vomiting
- Bloating, swelling of ankles/feet, weight gain
- Breast tenderness
- Spotting or missed and/or irregular periods
- Increased risk of blood clots
- Increased risk of some hormone dependent tumours
Additionally, users may also experience breast lumps, severe stomach/abdominal pain, dark urine, yellowing eyes/skin, and mental/mood changes. If any of these side effects occur, consult a doctor immediately.
How do I stop taking Yasmin birth control?
You can stop taking Yasmin at any time. If you are considering becoming pregnant, it is recommended that you begin taking a vitamin supplement containing folic acid. It is best that you start taking folic acid tablets before you stop taking Yasmin and not stop until your doctor agrees.
