Description

What is Yaz?

Yaz is a combination medication combining progesterone (drospirenone) and estrogen (ethinyl estradiol) which is used as a birth control pill preventing ovulation. As well as being used as a contraception, Yaz can also be used to treat acne in females over 14 who have started their menstrual periods and to treat the symptoms of premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) including anxiety, depression and others.

How does Yaz work?

Yaz works by preventing the release of an egg during your menstrual cycle. Yaz also causes changes to your cervical mucus and uterine lining which can make it more difficult for sperm to reach the uterus and harder for a fertilized egg to attach to the uterus.

Always read the patient information and instructions carefully before using this medication.

  • Yaz is an oral medication which can be taken with or without food.
  • It is typically prescribed to be taken once daily and should be taken at the same time each day, 24 hours apart. Taking Yaz after your evening meal or at bedtime can help to decrease nausea and stomach upset.
  • You start with the first tablet in the pack and continue to take Yaz in the correct order without skipping any doses. Pregnancy is more likely to occur if you miss pills, take your pill at a different time to usual or start a pack late.
  • Your pack should contain 24 pills containing active medication and 4 reminder pills which do not contain hormones. Take an active pill once daily for 24 days and then take your reminder pills once daily for 4 days. You should have your period within three days after taking the last active tablet. After taking your last reminder pill, start a new pack the next day.
