How Does Yasmin Work?

Pregnancy occurs when an egg discharged from the ovaries gets fertilised by sperm. The female sex hormones progesterone and oestrogen regulate ovulation.� Drospirenone and ethinylestradiol, two synthetic hormones that mimic these two natural hormones, are found in Yasmin. They prevent releasing of an egg, fertilisation and embryo implantation.
