Mode of action of Yasmin

Ethinyl estradiol and drospirenone are among the group of estrogen-progestagen combinations for contraception.

Ethinyl estradiol is related to the body’s own hormone estradiol from the estrogen group. Drospirenone is a progestin (luteal hormone) and is similar to progesterone.

The interaction of estrogens and progestins helps prepare the body for pregnancy, ovulation, and the recovery phase of a woman’s monthly cycle. This is done by distributing these hormones differently on certain cycle days.

By using the drug combination, the body is offered increased amounts of estrogens and progestins. The body is faked as a pregnancy. As a result, ovulation is inhibited and the thickening of the lining of the premature nevi, which is necessary for implantation of the egg, is avoided. This means a double protection from pregnancy. Drospirenone additionally thickens the mucus at the uterine entrance, so that sperm can penetrate worse. Through its positive influence on the development of the lining of the uterus, drospirenone can also counteract cycle disorders that are due to irregular or irregular bleeding (ie the degradation of the endometrium).
