Not sure which Contraception treatment you need?
Yasmin is one of the most popular combination oral contraceptives available. In clinical trials, less than one out of every 100 women using this birth control pill became pregnant, making it one of the most effective lower dose contraceptives available. Yasmin is also unique amongst oral contraceptives because it reduces the risk of weight gain to a minimum, which can be a common side effect of other contraceptives.
We offer all our patients a free and confidential online consultation to help them buy Yasmin online with confidence. Your consultation will be checked by one of our doctors to ensure that this is the right birth control pill for you.

What are the benefits of this birth control pill?
Yasmin has been available in the UK since 2002 and is very popular as a long term contraceptive solution to help avoid conception. It provides immediate protection if taken on the first day of your period; if taken later, it will take seven days to become fully effective. It's different from other long term birth control pills because it reduces the risk of weight gain, which is a common side effect of many other oral contraceptives. This birth control pill also reduces water retention, because it uses a type of progestogen that has the same effect as the compounds present in diuretics.
Although it's not prescribed to treat skin conditions such as acne, using Yasmin can potentially improve the appearance of skin and hair. The progestogen present in this birth control pill has an anti-androgenic effect, which means that it works against testosterone, which is usually the cause of acne.
How does this birth control pill work?
This birth control pill contains two main ingredients, namely drospirenone and ethinylestradiol. Drospirenone is a type of progestogen and ethinylestradiol is a type of oestrogen, and they work together to prevent the release of an egg from the ovaries (ovulation). These two ingredients also alter the state of the uterine lining, making it more difficult for sperm to enter the uterus and a fertilised egg to embed itself in the uterus.
Who can take Yasmin?
You can buy Yasmin online if you are 18 years or older and you are looking for a long term, lower dosage birth control pill to help prevent pregnancy. You should not take Yasmin if you are pregnant or suspect you may be pregnant. Yasmin should also not be taken if you have or have had a blood clot or stroke, circulation problems, heart valve issues, jaundice, abdominal or vaginal bleeding, uterine or breast cancer, kidney and liver diseases, adrenal gland disorders, high blood pressure or if you experience regular migraines.
It's advisable that you mention any other medical conditions you have or medications you are using to the doctor when you do your consultation, when you order this birth control pill.
How do you take Yasmin?
You should ideally start using Yasmin on the first day of your menstrual cycle. This will ensure that you are protected straight away. You can also start using Yasmin on the second to fifth day of your period, but then you will need to use additional contraception for the next seven days as a precaution.
Yasmin should be taken orally, with or without food, at the same time every day. Each pack contains 21 pills; you take the pills for three weeks and then leave a week before beginning a new course of medication. You will still be protected against pregnancy during this week between courses.
Are there any side affects I need to be aware of?
As with most prescription medications, certain side effects are a possibility when you are using this birth control pill. But Yasmin is generally well tolerated and most of the side effects that occur are very mild in nature and will pass without treatment. Possible side effects include headaches, menstrual changes, breast pain, abdominal pain and nausea.
