What is Yasminelle?
Yasminelle is a contraceptive pill and is based on two hormones, ethinylestradiol and drospirenone. This pill prevents the emergence of a pregnancy and is a safe and easy to use contraceptive. You can order Yasminelle online through the pharmacies that work with Dokteronline.com.
What is this medication used for?
Women use Yasminelle to prevent pregnancy. The female hormones in these pills inhibit ovulation and make the uterine lining unsuitable for implantation of a fertilized egg. The probability of an unplanned pregnancy is therefore virtually nil, providing you take the pill without omission and according to the guidelines.
How to use Yasminelle?
The contraceptive pill Yasminelle is easy to use. The pills come in blister packs of 21 pieces. Take one pill each day at or around the same time with water. You can take Yasminelle with or without food. When a pack is empty, wait 7 days before starting a new strip. During this gap week the hormone levels in your body decrease, which causes a bleeding after several days. This bleeding is similar to a menstrual period, but is usually less severe. If you forget to take the pill forgotten or if its effect could be diminished (for example, if you have vomited the pill or have suffered severe diarrhea), then you may not be fully protected against pregnancy. You will find information on what to do in these cases in the leaflet.
The partner pharmacies offer Yasminelle available online. Unless a doctor prescribes otherwise, the usual dosage is as follows:
- Adult women: once daily 1 tablet on or around the same time. After 21 days pause for 7 days (gap week).
Read the instructions before use.
Birth control pills can cause side effects. Some are serious, but are rare. Other, more common side effects that may occur when taking Yasminelle are:
- Irregular menstrual periods;
- Abdominal pain;
- Mood swings;
- Weight gain;
- Sensitive or swollen breasts.
The leaflet contains more information about the side effects of Yasminelle. Read this information carefully before you start taking the pill. If you suffer side effects, please consult a doctor or pharmacist.
