Yasmin 3 mg
Yasmin 3 mg is a combined contraceptive pill that is made up from two active ingredients namely Drospirenone or Ethinyl estradiol. It is taken to prevent unwanted pregnancy in women. The combination drug is more than 99% effective when taken correctly, but missing pills can make it less effective. Remember, it should not be taken to protect against sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). If you are looking for STD protection, you still need to use condoms with it. Yasmin tablets come in a pack of 21 pills, you need to take one pill at the same time every day for 21 days and then have to leave a gap of seven days before starting the next packet. The medicine works to stop your ovaries from releasing an egg each month.
Uses of the drug:
Yasmin, the combination of Drospirenone and Ethinyl Estradiol is used as a contraceptive drug to avoid pregnancy. Women who are past 14 years old and have just begun experiencing their menstrual cycle can also use it effectively to cure moderate acne.
It also treats indications of premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), such as anxiety, depression, irritability, lack of concentration, lethargy, erratic sleep or appetite, breast tenderness, joint or muscle pain, headache, and weight gain.
Working of the Yasmin:
Yamin is a combination drug that checks ovulation, which is the discharge of an egg from the ovary. It also modifies the cervical and uterine lining, making it difficult for sperm to come in contact with the uterus. This, in turn, makes it difficult for eggs to fertilize in the uterus.

How to take Yasmin 3 mg?
Note- When the combined contraceptive pills like Yasmin 3 mg taken appropriately, there is approximately 1% chance of the failure. However, the failure rate may increase if the pills are missed or taken in an incorrect manner.
The pills must be taken exactly in the order given on the package. Take it every day, preferably at the same time with water or some liquid. One 3 mg pill is to be taken every day for 21 days. If this is not followed strictly, the chances of a user getting pregnant increase manifold. Each combined contraceptive pill pack of Yasmin should be started after a seven-day interval. Consider taking it after an evening meal or bedtime with water. This birth control pill can be taken without regards to meals.
When to take?
The treatment has to start on the first day of the woman’s menstrual bleeding. Strictly follow the consumption of Drospirenone - Ethinyl Estradiol as your doctor advises you to. In no instance should you increase or decrease the quantity or take it for longer than advised. If in doubt, you could also follow the instructions on the prescription label.
For how long to take it?
Take this medicine as long as the doctor recommends you. Within the first 3 months of taking these pills, you may experience breakthrough bleeding. Keep your doctor posted if your bleeding does not stop or becomes heavier. In case you fall sick with severe vomiting or diarrhea, use a standby birth control method.
You might need to stay away from this medication for some time if you have to go through surgery or medical tests, or if you will be confined to bed rest for a considerable duration. The surgeon tasked with your operation and convalescence should be made aware that you are using birth control pills. Visit your doctor regularly while taking these pills. Store them at room temperature and safely away from moisture and heat.
If the user is less than 12 hours late in taking the Yasmin pill, the birth control effect will be still there and then the woman should take the tablet as soon as possible, following the next dosing schedule.
If the woman is 12 hours late in taking any pill, the birth control effect is reduced. There are two basic things that a woman needs it to consider to manage missed tablet:
- Firstly, she should never discontinue taking the tablet for more than a week.
- Secondly, one week of daily dosing is required to achieve sufficient suppression of the hypothalamic pituitary ovarian axis.
Follow the advice for daily practice:
The woman should take the missed pill as soon as she remembers. She can even take two pills on that day. She then continues her normal dosage from the next day. In addition to other contraceptive methods, such as condom should be used for the next seven days. This is to reduce the possibility of pregnancy if the sexual activity takes place in this preceding seven days. The more you miss the pill, the higher the risk of pregnancy.
The woman should take the missed pill as soon as she remembers. She can even take two pills on that day. She then continues her normal dosage from the next day. If the woman has taken her pills as scheduled in the seven days preceding the first missed pill, there is no need to use additional birth control method. But, if this is not the case, or she has missed more than one tablet, then it is advised to use extra precautionary measure for seven days.
At week three, there is an increased risk of reduced contraceptive protection because of the forthcoming tablet-free interval. However, a user can still prevent reduced contraceptive prevention by adjusting the dosing schedule. If the user will stick to either of these two options, there is, therefore, no need to use preventive measures for birth control.
If this is not the case, the user is advised to go with the first of these two options along with an additional contraceptive measure for the next seven days as well.
1. The woman should take the missed pill as soon as she remembers. She can even take two pills on that day. She then continues her normal dosage from the next day. The next combined contraceptive pack should be started as soon as the current pill pack is finished. The idea is not to leave a gap between packs. The user is not going to experience a withdrawal bleeds until the end of the second pack, but can experience spotting or breakthrough bleeding while taking the tablet.
2. Also, the woman should stop taking pills from the current pack. She should follow a tablet-free interval of up to a week; this tablet free period includes the days the user missed the tablets and subsequently continues taking the pills from the second pack.
If the woman missed tablet taking, and do not experience withdrawal bleed in the first normal tablet-free period, the chances of pregnancy are still there.
