Yasmin vs Novelon


  • Yasmin
  • What is Yasmin

    Yasmin is a birth control pill. It combines synthetic versions of two female hormones, estrogen and progesterone, and prevents pregnancy by: stopping ovulation, preventing the release of an egg; thickening cervical mucus so sperm has difficulty traveling into the uterus; preventing a fertilized egg from attaching to the lining of the uterus.

  • Yasmin dosage

    Take one tablet by mouth at the same time every day. The failure rate may increase when pills are missed or taken incorrectly.

    To achieve maximum contraceptive effectiveness, Yasmin must be taken as directed, in the order directed on the blister pack. Single missed pills should be taken as soon as remembered.

    Begin taking Yasmin either on the first day of her menstrual period or on the first Sunday after the onset of her menstrual period.

    You should take one yellow Yasmin daily for 21 consecutive days, followed by one white tablet daily on Days 22 through 28. Yasmin should be taken in the order directed on the package at the same time each day, preferably after the evening meal or at bedtime with some liquid, as needed. Yasmin can be taken without regard to meals.

    When switching from another birth control pill, Yasmin should be started on the same day that a new pack of the previous oral contraceptive would have been started.

    For postpartum women who do not breastfeed or after a second trimester abortion, start Yasmin no earlier than 4 weeks postpartum due to the increased risk of thromboembolism. If the patient starts Yasmin postpartum and has not yet had a period, evaluate for possible pregnancy, and instruct her to use an additional method of contraception until she has taken Yasmin for 7 consecutive days.

  • Novelon dosage

    Take Novelon pills every day for 21 days. It comes in strips of 21 pills, each marked with a day of the week. Take your pill at the same time every day. Start by taking a pill marked with the correct day of the week, then follow the direction of the arrows on the strip. Take one pill each day, until you have finished all 21 tablets. Swallow each pill as a whole, with water if necessary. Do not chew the pill. After you have taken all 21 pills in the strip, you have seven days when you take no pills.

    For new users, take your first pill on the first day of your next period. By starting in this way, you will have contraceptive protection with your first pill. If your period has already begun, start taking the pill on day 5 (counting the first day of your period as day 1) whether or not the bleeding has stopped. You must also use extra contraception, such as condoms, until you have taken the first seven pills correctly.

    If you missed a dose that is due less than 12 hours ago, take the delayed pill right away and proceed with the next pills as usual. If you missed a pill that was due more than 12 hours ago, take the pill that is due this day and leave the earlier missed pill. Proceed taking all other pills as usual. Take extra precautions (e.g. condoms) for the next 7 days.

    If you missed more than 7 pills from the first week of your strip, and you had sex in that week, you might get pregnant. Discard the entire strip, and talk to your doctor ASAP.

    It is important that Novelon pills should not be taken by women allergic to this drug.

I was on Yasmin a few years ago and had no problems at all whilst taking it. I have recently been on loestrin 20. After taking it for 3 months and having bleeding for 3 weeks out of 4 I have stopped and I am considering asking the doctor for Yasmin again!


I really like Yasmin. I have been using it for nine months and it has been great. It has been great for cramps and I have only experienced slight weight gain (due to increased cravings). The only side effect I had was nausea. I experienced nausea when I took the pill and did not have food in my stomach. If I ate before taking it, it was great! Overall, I have had a great experience with Yasmin.


I have been on Yasmine for 2 years. I did not take any weight with this pill and my periods are finally regulated! Also helped my skin! I suffer from migrains since I was 6 years old and this pill did not increase them. I was also on anxiety medication when I started this contraceptive and I did not get depressive one bit, even when I stopped my anxiety meds. I love yasmine!


I have been taken novelon tablets for 3 months for irregularitis of menstrutation. I have stooped this pill from last 1 months and i have now regular period. But i have gained 7 kgs weight.


The first couple of weeks definitely took some getting use Novelon. My stomach was upset especially before getting my period and I would feel super bloated way before my period was due. I'm almost 4 months in and the upset stomach and bloating has stopped except during actual periods. Other than that I really like it.
