Yasmin belongs to a group of contraceptive drugs, which interfere with the ovulation process. The active ingredients of the remedy produce several effects, preventing egg release from the ovary and changing the uterine and cervical lining in order to make it more difficult for sperm to reach the uterus and for the fertilized egg to get attached to the uterus. Consequently, Yasmin serves a reliable birth control medication to warn pregnancy. Additionally, the drug can be administered for a range of other instances, not specified in the safety guide.
Consulting your healthcare specialist before the treatment course gives you higher chances to receive quality therapy with fewer side effects. The medication should be administered strictly in accordance with the doctor’s prescription and safety recommendations. Avoid increasing or decreasing the term of the therapy or recommended dose. The medication intake will start on the first day of your period. Besides, the course can be started the first Sunday after the period begins. Use some back-up, non-hormonal birth control beginning to use Yasmin, in order to make sure the drug will achieve the necessary effect.
Despite the dosing will differ depending on individual peculiarities of the patient, general instructions will remain the same. A patient should administer pills on a daily basis, preferably at the same time. You can take the drug either at bedtime or after the meal. Skipping even a single pill can lead to unwanted pregnancy. Visit the doctor regularly, while taking contraceptive pills.
Precautions and Contraindications
The medication course can advance the risk of stroke, blood clots and heart attack occurrence. The conditions are the most dangerous for patients, who are diagnosed with accompanying cholesterol imbalances, diabetes, obesity, abnormal blood pressure and other complications. Smoking can also impair the treatment course, triggering severe health disorders, such as heart attack, blood clots or stroke. Yasmin is not approved for pregnant and breastfeeding women, as it can promote serious harm to the health of an unborn and nursing child.

There is a range of prescription and non-prescription medications, which can interact with Yasmin leading to unwanted pregnancy and certain health disorders. Inform your medical specialist about the pharmaceutical products, herbals and minerals you are currently using to avoid blood level imbalances and other adverse reactions possible. Never take Yasmin together with other treatments, unless your doctor advises you to.
The medication is commonly safe, but its misuse can definitely activate specific complications. Seek emergency medical assistance the moment you have noticed any symptoms of allergic reactions, stroke, heart attack, blood clots, liver impairments, swelling, depression symptoms, breast lumps and others. Besides, Yasmin can activate minor reactions, including weight gain, breast tenderness, stomach disorders, nausea, etc.
