The Yasmin birth control pill is a combined pill with a standard dose of estrogen and a progestin called drospirenone. It can be used to treat acne, mood problems, and some symptoms of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Some research has also linked it to increased sexual enjoyment. Compared with other combined pills, it has a slightly increased risk of blood clots, therefore it's usually not prescribed as a first choice option. It comes in a pack of 28 pills, 21 are yellow active pills containing hormones and the other 7 are white placebo pill with no active hormones during which you will have a withdrawal bleed. We've partnered with Nurx for birth control prescriptions and may earn a small commission.

It’s fine. I’ve gained quite a bit of weight but compared to others used in the past I feel like my mood swings aren’t as intense.
