Yasmin is a prescription only treatment. It is a combined oral contraceptive pill known as, ‘the Pill’ which is taken to prevent pregnancy.

Microgynon contains two types of female sex hormones: oestrogen (ethinylestradiol) and progesterone (drospirenone). These hormones prevent pregnancy by stopping an egg being released from your ovaries; thickening the fluid in the cervix, and preventing the womb lining from thickening enough for an egg to grow in it.

Yasmin is a 21-day pill which is taken each day for 21 days, followed by 7 days where no pills are taken. It is one of the most common and reliable contraception methods if used correctly. It can make periods lighter, regular and less painful and may help with pre-menstrual symptoms. It will not protect you from sexually transmitted infections and needs to be taken as directed to prevent pregnancy.

    WHAT IS IT USED FOR?

    Yasmin contains the following two active ingredients: ethinylestradiol (30mcg) and drospirenone (3 mg). Yasmin is used as a method of contraception to prevent pregnancy but can also be used to treat other conditions, such as heavy bleeding during menstruation.
