Yaz Plus (Drospirenone/Ethinyl Estradiol/Levomefolate Calcium) is a birth control pill (oral contraceptive) that contains two female sex hormones, the progestin drospirenone (3.0mg), and a low dose of estrogen ethinyl estradiol (0.020mg). It also contains 0.451mg levomefolate calcium, which is a B vitamin. This medication is used to prevent pregnancy, to treat moderate acne vulgaris in women 14 years of age and older who are able to use birth control pills. Yaz Plus works by lowering androgen levels in the body and by blocking the effects of androgens at the gland. It is highly effective in preventing pregnancy and it also reduces the number of acne breakouts. Levomefolate calcium in Yaz Plus provides folate supplementation in women who choose to use an oral contraceptive.
