Yasmin is a contraceptive
pill which contains drospirenone
which is a synthetic progestational compound and ethinyl estradiol
which is a synthetic estrogenic compound.
Like any other birth control pills, these pills also contribute in increasing the weight. Also, if you are suffering from depressive attacks, you should not take the contraceptive pills without consulting your Psychiatrist
. These medicines may increase the tendency for depression.
Please do not take this medicine without your Gynaecologist's advice. Please report to your Gynaecologist about the changes in your physique and psyche.
I hope this helps you.
