If you want to buy Yasmin online Canada before buying you should know that the drug has contraindications. Do not start using this drug without first consulting your doctor. Yasmin is a monophasic oral contraceptive. This means that all tablets in the package contain the same dose of hormones. One tablet of Yasmin contains 30 mcg (0.03 mg) of Ethinyl Estradiol and 3 mg Drospirenone. One package contains one blister (plate) of Yasmin for reception within one month.
Oral contraceptives Yasmin have antiandrogenic effect. This means that they block the action of male sex hormones (androgens) in the body of a woman. Androgens are known to be a common cause of oily skin and acne. Therefore, Yasmin can have a cosmetic effect-to eliminate or at least weaken acne.
In addition, yasmin allows you to reduce pain during menstruation, as well as reduce the manifestations of premenstrual syndrome (PMS). Yasmin tablets do not retain water in the body, so their reception does not increase the weight of women.
Yasmin can be used as a treatment for endometriosis, adenomyosis, uterine myoma, polycystic ovaries and some other gynecological diseases.
If you take Yasmin for the first time: the first pill should be taken on the first day of menstruation (this day is considered the first day of the menstrual cycle). Menstruation may stop at the beginning of taking pills, due to the action of hormones. No big deal.
• You can start taking pills and 3-5 day of the month, but in this case it is necessary to use additional contraception (eg, condom) a week after the start of taking the pills.
Take the tablets preferably every day at about the same hour.
• It is recommended to take the tablets in the order indicated on the blister. But, if you mix something up, and began to drink pills in order, then nothing terrible will happen, since all yasmin tablets contain the same dose of hormones.
After finishing the blister (when you have finished 21 tablets), you should take a 7-day break, during which the tablets do not need to be taken. During the 7-day break, you may start menstruating.
• Taking the first pill from the next blister should be started on the 8th day after a 7-day break, regardless of menstruation (even if it has not yet started or not yet ended).
During the week break between the packages do not need to use additional contraceptives, as the contraceptive effect is maintained at a high level.
If the pills are chosen correctly, they do not cause weight gain. Perhaps, excess kilograms appear absolutely for other reasons – for example, young girls often begin to be protected, and they begin to gain weight because of age factors or change of lifestyle.
But this is true only for those cases where the woman took the pills from the previous package without missing and according to the rules. If you missed one or more pills in the third week of taking yasmin or if the effect of the pills could be lowered for another reason (vomiting, diarrhea, medication, etc.), then a 7-day break is recommended not to do at all.
If you have taken other birth control pills and now want to switch to Yasmin follow these rules:

If the delay in taking the tablet yasmin was less than 12 hours (ie, after taking the last pill took less than 36 hours), the contraceptive effect of the tablets is not reduced. Drink the missed pill as soon as you remember it. Additional protection in this case is not necessary.
If the delay in the reception was more than 12 hours, then look at what the tablet was missed:
From 1 to 7 tablets: you need to drink a missed tablet as soon as remembered about it, even if it will have to drink 2 tablets at the same time. Use additional contraception (such as a condom) for the next 7 days.
From 8 to 14 tablets: you need to drink a missed tablet as soon as remembered about it, even if it will have to drink 2 tablets at the same time.

If you missed 2 yasmin pills in a row, note which pills you missed. If it is a pill of the first or second week of reception (from 1 to 14), then take 2 tablets at once as soon as remembered about the admission and 2 more tablets next day. Next, take one tablet daily, as usual, until the end of the package. Use additional contraception for another 7 days after resuming taking the pills.
If you miss two pills in a row in the 3rd week (15 to 21), there are two options:
1. continue taking yasmin one tablet a day until the package is finished and then, without making a 7-day break, start a new package. At the same time, use additional contraceptives for another 7 days after skipping.
2. throw away the current (unfinished) package and start taking a new package with the first tablet (one tablet a day, as usual). At the same time, additional contraceptives should be used 7 days after the pass.
If you missed 3 yasmin pills in a row, discard the current pill pack and start a new pack with the first pill. Use additional contraception for another 7 days. You will have an increased risk of pregnancy, so if the next break of the month will not come, contact your gynecologist.
