Buy Yasmin Pills Online UK

Yasmin is a brand name for a combined contraceptive pill. In the UK, there is a generic version of Yasmin available called Lucette. Lucette contains the same active ingredients as Yasmin.

Yasmin pills effectively prevents ovulation, which is necessary to avoid pregnancy. This combined pill contains two different female hormones, namely drospirenone (progestin) and ethinylestradiol (estrogen).

It is a monophasic COC (Combined Oral Contraceptive), meaning it contains slightly more estrogen than the other birth control options thus having higher chances of more side effects.

The other  active tablets contain the same dose of hormones while Yasmin, a popular brand, offers a different hormonal composition with a lower risk of certain side effects.

How to take Yasmin?

Yasmin prescription is taken as one tablet a day, around the same time for 21 days before having a break of 4 -7 days {called a stop or gap week}. Withdrawal bleeding starts on the 2nd or 3rd day of the gap week. 

After the gap week, you should start your dose again, whether bleeding or not. This means that you should start every strip of the medication on the same day of the week and the withdrawal bleeding should occur on the same days each month.

When Yasmin is used in this manner it protects you from pregnancy even in the 7 days break. If necessary, one should take Yasmin with a small amount of water. The pill can be taken with or without food.

One can also take Yasmin in the following ways:

Continuous use: Continuous use is when you take one pill daily without a break.

Flexible extended use: Flexible extended use is where you take one pill daily for at least 21 days. In case you get uncomfortable bleeding you can take a 7-day break. On the 8th day start taking the pill daily again and avoid another break for at least 21 days.

Tricycling: Take 1 pill daily for 9 weeks without a break. After 9 weeks {3 packs of pills} take a 4- or 7-day break and then start the cycle again.

How does Yasmin work? 

The two hormones contained in Yasmin: drospirenone {a progestin} and ethinylestradiol {an estrogen} work together to prevent pregnancy by:

  • Thickening cervical mucus to block sperm movement.
  • Suppressing ovulation which is the release of an egg from the ovary.
  • Creating an unfriendly environment for the fertilized egg by changing the lining in the uterus {womb}.

The birth control pill is 99% capable of protecting you from getting pregnant. Ensure to use a condom when engaging in sexual activity since the tablets don't protect you from getting STI.

About Ovulation 

Ovulation is a natural process in a woman's menstrual cycle where a mature egg is released from the ovary, ready for fertilization.

This usually occurs around the middle of the menstrual cycle, approximately 14 days before the start of the next period, (around day 14 in a 28-day cycle.)

Ovulation is triggered by hormonal changes, particularly a surge in luteinizing hormone (LH), which causes the egg to be released from the follicle on the ovary's surface.

If sperm fertilizes the egg during this time, conception and pregnancy can occur. 

When not to use Yasmin?

Yasmin pill should not be used if you have the following health conditions:

  • If you need an operation or off your feet for a long time
  •  If you have ever had a heart attack or stroke
  • If you have or have had a blood clot in a blood vessel of your leg, lungs, or other organs
  •  If you have a disorder affecting your blood clotting- for instance, protein c deficiency, protein s deficiency, antithrombin-ill deficiency, factor v Leiden, or antiphospholipid antibodies.
  • If you have or have had a tumor in the liver
  • If your kidneys are not working well
  •  If you have any unexplained bleeding from the vagina
  • if you have or have ever had or if you are suspected of having breast cancer or cancer of the genital organs
  • If you are allergic to ethinylestradiol, drospirenone, or any of the other ingredients of this medicine
  • Yasmin is not intended for use in females who have not yet started experiencing their periods
  •  If you are beyond menopause.

How effective is Yasmin and how long does it take to work? 

Yasmin if correctly administered is 99% effective in the prevention of pregnancy.  The effectiveness of the Yasmin pill can be affected if you are experiencing severe diarrhea or vomiting.

If you start using Yasmin on days 1-5 of your period, you should be protected from pregnancy immediately provided you don’t have a short or irregular menstrual cycle.

For effective assurance, you should continue using condoms for seven days if you start taking Yasmin from day one but you experience irregular or short menstrual cycles.

    In terms of preventing pregnancy, a condom would not be required. However, condoms should be worn during sexual intercourse to protect against sexually transmitted diseases. Condoms are the only way to prevent transmission of STDs.

  • Who should not use the contraceptive pill?

    You should not take the contraceptive pill if:

    • You have a history of blood clots
    • You have ever had breast cancer
    • You are pregnant
    • You have a history of heart problems
    • You may also potentially have to avoid oral contraception if you smoke, due to the risk of developing a blood clot.
  • Does the pill prevent STDs?

    No. Only condoms prevent STDs. You are still susceptible to STDs if you are having sex without a condom whilst taking the pill.

  • Do I need to take emergency contraception if I have sex when I have forgotten to take my pill?

    This will depend on:

    • the type of contraceptive pill you are taking
    • how many pills you have missed
    • what stage of your cycle you are currently in

    Emergency contraception may not always be necessary in this case.

  • Do I need to take the pill at the same time every day?

    For combined contraceptive pills it does not matter at what time you take the pill, although you should aim to do this at a regular time every day, and missing one pill will not necessarily mean you are not covered.

    For progesterone only (mini pills), they need to be taken at the same time each day or within 3 hours of that time (12 hours for Cerazette). Missing a tablet or not taking it at the right time may lead to bleeding or lack of contraceptive cover.

    You can start taking Yasmin on the first day of your period or the first Sunday after it begins, provided you are not using another hormonal birth control pill. This applies even if you are still bleeding. For the first seven days, use a backup birth control technique (such as condoms or spermicides) to avoid getting pregnant.

    Yasmin is a contraceptive pill that is used to prevent pregnancy. It is a combined pill that contains two different female hormones namely Drospirenone and ethinylestradiol.

    You must take Yasmin pills on time every day for optimal results. Take the missing medication immediately you remember and take the next at your scheduled time. If you miss one active pill (you may need to take two in one day).

    Inquire with your healthcare practitioner or pharmacist about what to do if you miss two or more active pills in a row, as instructions may vary based on the week you missed your medicines.

    After skipping two or more active pills, you must use spermicide or condoms as a backup non-hormonal birth control method if you have sex within seven days.

Information

About oral contraception

Oral contraception, also known as ‘the pill’ is a tablet taken by women to prevent pregnancy. There are many different types of the pill, which use synthetic hormones, such as oestrogen and progesterone to prevent pregnancy. This can be in 1 of 3 ways:

  1. They stop ovulation, so an egg is not released from the ovaries.
  2. They thicken a woman’s cervical mucus, making it harder for the sperm to reach the egg.
  3. They make a woman's womb inhospitable to stop a fertilised egg from attaching to the lining of the uterus.

Oral contraceptive pills are normally taken once daily at the same time each day. For the pill to have maximum effect, it must be taken at the same time each day. This is particularly important for certain contraceptive pills, which must be taken in a 3 hour window for them to be effective at all.

Most contraceptive pills involve a 21 day period of taking the pill, followed by a 7 day break. Whereas others are taken continuously.

You should never take a contraceptive pill that has not been prescribed for you by your doctor, and you must have a pill review at least once a year, which includes a blood pressure test.

Here at Ashcroft Pharmacy, we are able to supply repeat oral contraception to women that have had the same contraception previously prescribed for them.

Benefits of oral contraception include:

  • Easy and convenient contraceptive method
  • Highly effective in preventing pregnancy
  • Lighter periods and also less cramping, bloating, and irritability that are often associated with normal menstruation
  • Does not interfere with sexual intercourse
  • May provide some protection from pelvic inflammatory disease which, if left untreated, can lead to infertility.
  • Clear up hormonal acne.
