Yasmin is a revolutionary, two-component, monophasic contraceptive pill, which means that each tablet contains the same dose of synthetic sex hormones. As is the case with most contraceptive pills, Yasmin tablets should be taken for 21 days, and then a seven-day break from using them is required.
During the time when the pills are not taken, there may appear withdrawal symptoms similar to a typical menstrual bleeding, however there occurs no ovulation. Convenient packaging divided into consecutive days of the week helps to avoid confusion when taking the pills. It should be noted that the effectiveness of the pills may be compromised when taking other medication or suffering from certain medical conditions.
