Description

Yasmin - 3mg

This drug has a generic name Ethinyl estradiol and Drospirenone and sold under the brand name Yaz which is a birth control pill. It functions by preventing ovulation or the release of a female egg out of the ovaries. This medication helps to perform changes in the cervical and uterine lining which further makes the cervical mucus more viscous and make it harder for male sperms to reach the uterus and also for a fertilized egg to bond to the uterus wall. It is used as a contraceptive way to prevent pregnancy.

This drug is also used in relieving the symptoms of premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), such as depression, anxiety, irritability, concentration troubles, lethargy, changes in sleep patterns or appetite, muscle or joint pain, tender breasts, and weight gain. It is prescribed for other treatments beside those listed above.
