YASMIN DRUG INFORMATION, ABOUT YASMIN
|Cigarette smoking has been shown to increase the risk of serious side effects from oral contraceptives. Risks include blood clots, heart attacks, and strokes. This risk is higher for women over 35 years of age and in heavy smokers (15 or more cigarettes per day).
If you take oral contraceptives, you should not smoke.
Yasmin is an oral contraceptives (birth-control pills) used to prevent pregnancy. Progestin and estrogen are two female sex hormones. Combinations of progestin and estrogen work by preventing the release of eggs from the ovaries (ovulation) and by changing the cervical mucus and the lining of the uterus. Oral contraceptives are an effective method of birth control, however, they do not prevent the spread of AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases.
Oral contraceptives come in packets of 21 or 28 tablets designed to be take by mouth once a day. Take oral contraceptives with food or milk to avoid an upset stomach. Take the tablet at the same time every day (e.g., at breakfast or at bedtime) to help you remember to take the tablet regularly. If you miss doses, you increase your risk of becoming pregnant.

If you have a 21-tablet packet, take one tablet a day for 21 days. Then take none for 7 days. Then start a new packet.
If you have a 28-tablet packet, take one tablet a day for 28 days. The last 7 tablets will be a different color. These 7 tablets are not birth-control pills. They contain either iron (ferrous fumarate) or an inactive ingredient. Take one tablet a day continuously for 28 days in the order specified in your packet. Start a new packet the day after taking your 28th tablet.
