   and progesterone.

Combined oral contraceptives, which include Yasmin, affect the natural menstrual cycle. During a normal menstrual cycle, the level of sex hormones in the female body changes during each month. With this egg is released from the ovary (ovulation) and the inner lining of the uterus (the endometrium) is preparing for a possible pregnancy. If the end of the cycle the egg is not fertilized, hormone levels are reduced and menstruation begins.

   It has already occurred. Due to this, the egg is not mature and released from the ovary. Hormones also compacted natural cervical mucosa, due to which the sperm will be difficult to get out of the vagina to the uterus. Furthermore, ethinylestradiol and drospirinon alter endometrium so that even if fertilization occurs, the likelihood of implantation of the ovum in the uterine wall is very small.

In women taking Yasmin, monthly there are more regular, less long and painful; bleeding weaker than those not taking hormonal contraceptives. So sometimes Yasmin or other combined oral contraceptives are recommended for women whose periods are very painful, or menstrual irregularities.

So you immediately control protection against pregnancy and eliminate the need to use additional methods of contraception. If you could not start receiving the first day of menstruation, it is possible to do so within the first five days of the cycle - then you also will not need additional funds of contraception. However, if you have a short menstrual cycle (monthly start every 23 days or more often) and you started taking Yasmin on the fifth day of the cycle, consult a gynecologist - probably during the first week you will need to use any more contraceptives.

It is important to realize that, as compared with women who did not use a combined hormonal contraceptives in women taking them slightly increased risk of blood clots in the veins of the legs (deep venous thrombosis) or the lungs (pulmonary embolism), as well as in arteries, that can lead to stroke or heart attack. This risk is particularly high among female smokers and those suffering from obesity. Yasmin can cause the formation of blood clots with slightly more likely than contraceptives "second generation" containing levonorgestrel. However, during pregnancy, blood clots are formed with significantly more likely than oral contraceptives, so the risks must always be considered in comparison with the benefits of a dose.

The risk of blood clots in the veins when taking Yasmin temporarily increased by limiting the mobility of the long term - for example, after a serious accident or major surgery. Therefore, doctors usually recommend to stop taking Jeanine for a certain period of time (usually 4-6 weeks) before the scheduled surgery, especially in the abdominal or orthopedic surgery of the lower limbs. If the patient has a long recovery from injury, during which she almost could not get out of bed, from taking Yasmin and should be abandoned. In addition, Yasmin increases risk of blood clots during long journeys, but the risk can be reduced if a regular warm-up (for example, to walk down the aisle of the aircraft) and to wear special stockings on a trip. This can be pre-talk to your doctor.

Hormonal contraceptives slightly increases the likelihood of breast cancer. Women who take oral contraceptives for more than five years, also slightly increased risk of cervical cancer, compared with women not taking such pills.
