Were you looking for information about Yasmin? Yazmin is a common misspelling of Yasmin.
Yasmin® (drospirenone/ethinyl estradiol) is a birth control pill taken by women to prevent pregnancy. The medication works primarily by stopping ovulation, but it also makes the lining of the uterus less receptive to an embryo. In one clinical study, less than 1 out of every 100 women who used Yasmin for a year became pregnant. It is important to take the medication every day and at the same time each day, as missing pills increases the risk of pregnancy.
Although most women have no problems when taking Yasmin, side effects can occur, such as nausea, headaches, and breast pain. Because this medication is not suitable for everyone, you should talk to your healthcare provider prior to taking it about any health conditions you have, such as migraines, diabetes, or depression. In addition, let your healthcare provider know if you have an upcoming surgery planned.
