What are Some Additional Differences between Yaz and Yasmin?

Yaz and Yasmin both work in preventing pregnancy through preventing or stopping ovulation which is defined as the maturation as well as eggs being released out of the ovaries. The birth control medications Yaz and Yasmin alter cervical mucus as well as uterus lining.
These two medications Yasmin, Yaz, as well as their generic versions Ocella, Zarah, and others differ from standard birth control methods and other contraceptive pills in important aspects. Progesterone used in Yaz, Yasmin, Ocella, and Zarah is called drospirenone and has been closely associated with spironolactone which is a drug used for diuretics. Commonly known as a water pill, this spironolactone is similar to the drospirenone used in Yaz and Yasmin and has anti-androgenic specific activities, meaning that these work against male testosterone as well as other male hormones. Women having small amounts of the hormones and are generally referred to as “male hormones.” These hormones lead to incidentals like acne and other skin issues.
