Yasmin (Drospirenone and Ethinyl Estradiol) is a combination medication containing two ingredients: (drospirenone) and estrogen (ethinyl estradiol). It is a birth control pill used to prevent pregnancy. This medication works by preventing the release of an egg from an ovary and also causes changes in your cervical and uterine lining, making it harder for sperm to reach the uterus and harder for a fertilized egg to attach to the uterus. It is also used to treat moderate acne for women over 16 years old, who wish to use birth control pills to prevent pregnancy. YASMIN IS A PRESCRIPTION MEDICATION - WE REQUIRE A COPY OF YOUR DOCTOR'S PRESCRIPTION TO PROCESS ORDER.
We currently have the brand from Canada manufactured by Bayer, the brand from Turkey manufactured by Schering and the generic Crisanta from India. Yasmin is available in either 21-day or 28-day tablet form.
