Yasmin effectively help in preventing risks of being pregnant after any sexual activity. Yasmin prevent the release of an egg from an ovary and also cause changes in your cervical mucous and uterine lining, making it harder for sperm to reach the uterus and harder for a fertilized egg to attach to the uterus.

Yasmin is over 99 percent more effective at preventing pregnancy, and can give you shorter, lighter period, reduced cramps and a regular cycle. Who would not want that?

Yasmin has the combination of drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol is used as contraception to prevent pregnancy. Yasmin pill also used to treat the symptoms of premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), such as anxiety, depression, irritability, trouble concentrating, lack of energy, sleep or appetite change, and feeling out of control.  

Yasmin being a birth contraceptive pill contains the two hormones called estrogen and progestin. It works in two ways first by preventing the release of an egg or ovulation. Secondly, it thickens the cervical mucus so that the sperm is unable to travel towards the egg to fertilize it.
