How Should Yasmin Be Stored?

Keep Yasmin tablets in their original package. The packaging is designed to help you remember to take the tablets each day. Keep the package at room temperature, away from moisture and heat.
Keep Yasmin and all other medications out of the reach of children.

What If I Miss a Dose?

Missing doses of Yasmin increases the risk of pregnancy. What you should do if you miss a dose depends on how many tablets you have missed and where exactly you are in your cycle (see Yasmin Dosage). Also, if you are not sure what to do, you can refer to the patient information that comes with each pack of Yasmin or consult your healthcare provider.
