Yasmin, is a popular and effective contraceptive pill. It has two ingredients to help prevent ovulation, and also to make it harder for sperm to reach the uterus.

Like with any medication, there are risks involved, and so you should have all your regular check-ups with your own GP each year, to make sure it is safe to continue taking Yasmin.

Yasmin is taken once daily, at around the same time each day. Yasmin is a 21 day pill pack, meaning you take 21 tablets consecutively (starting on day 1 of your menstrual cycle), followed by a 7 day, pill free break.


What is in Yasmin?

Yasmin contains two synthetic hormones, ethinylestradiol and drospirenone. These are synthetic versions of the naturally occurring hormones, oestrogen and progesterone

What is Yasmin?

Yasmin is a combined oral contraceptive pill.

When do I take Yasmin?

Yasmin is best taken at the same time each day, every day, for 21 days of your cycle. Yasmin ED comes with an additional 7 inactive pills, which can be taken to help keep track of your pill free days.

How does Yasmin work in birth control?

Yasmin works by tricking the body into thinking an egg has been released, by keeping hormone levels high. This prevents an egg being released into the ovaries each month. The hormones also work by thickening the mucus lining of the womb, making it more difficult for sperm to pass through.

How long after taking Yasmin are you protected?

If you started taking Yasmin on days 1-5 of your period, you will be protected immediately in your next cycle. If you started taking Yasmin after day 5, you should use additional contraception measure for SEVEN DAYS, until Yasmin will offer protection against pregnancy.

Are Yasmin and Microgynon the same?

No, Yasmin and Microgynon contain different synthetic hormones. While they have the same action, you should not switch pills without a check-up and discussion with your GP.

What do I do if I miss a Yasmin pill?

If you miss a Yasmin pill, you should take this as soon as possible, even if it means taking two pills at once. You can then continue taking your pills as normal, and still be protected. For a more detailed look at scenarios, see our missed pill guide.

Can Yasmin make you gain weight?

One of the side effects of contraceptive pills, is that there can be fluctuations of weight. If you find your weight gain is difficult to control, you should speak to your GP about switching pill.
