Low-dose combined oral contraceptive pills, like Yasmin, are effective and safe. In terms of preventing pregnancy, oral contraceptive pills are much more effective than standard barrier contraceptives like condoms and diaphragms. Taking your pill regularly can help eliminate the risk of unwanted pregnancy.

In the past, the pill contained unwanted hormones that caused side effects in women. Today, oral contraceptive pills contain only a fraction of the number of hormones. As a result, most women experience no side effects.

There are several additional benefits of taking Yasmin with drospirenone, including:

  • Reduced pain during menstruation
    Most women find periods become less painful and more manageable.
  • Reduced blood loss during menstruation
    If you suffer from heavy periods, Yasmin can also help by making them much lighter and easier to cope with and prevent problems associated with heavy blood loss (For example, iron deficiency).
  • More regular cycle
    Yasmin regulates your menstrual cycle so that you know exactly when your period will come every month.
  • Reduced PMS symptoms
    Many women find that especially Yasmin significantly reduces symptoms associated with a pre-menstrual syndrome like bloating, water retention, tender breasts, and stomach cramps.
  • Reduced risk of ovarian and womb cancer

What is Drospirenone?

Drospirenone is a synthetic hormone that mirrors the behavior of the progesterone hormone your body produces during menstruation. The major function of the progesterone hormone is to remove the water that is retained by your body during your cycle. This new synthetic agent is the first to mirror natural Progesterone in the way it combats water retention.

All modern contraceptive pills are extremely safe and effective at preventing pregnancy, but only Yasmin reduces the amount of water retained by the body during menstruation. Retaining water can cause:

  • Weight gain
  • Bloating
  • Decrease in energy
  • Tender breasts

By taking drospirenone, you will retain less water, drastically reducing your discomfort that can make you feel so uncomfortable in the second half of your menstrual cycle.
