Yasmin 28 day Uses
This oral medication is a birth control pill used to prevent pregnancy. Also, this drug helps treat moderate cases of acne in women 16 years old and older. Moreover, this oral pill helps regulate the period and reduce cramping.
Its active ingredients combine Drospirenone and Ethinyl Estradiol.
How does Yasmin work?
When this medication is taken correctly and absorbed into the bloodstream, drospirenone (synthetic progesterone) helps the body prepare for a fertilized egg and imminent pregnancy. Also, it removes excess water retained in the body during the menstrual cycle. Ethinyl Estradiol increases estrogen, tricking the body into thinking you are pregnant, thereby stopping ovulation.
Together, these two active substances help thicken the cervical mucus, making it difficult for sperm to reach an egg. Also, it makes the uterine lining less inviting, so a fertilized egg cannot attach to it.
