Yasmin is a combined contraceptive pill that contains two synthetic versions of the female hormones (oestrogen and progesterone) which help to stop the release and fertilisation of eggs.
Some treatments contain the same active ingredient but are sold under different names. If the active ingredient and the dosage are the same, the treatments will have the same effect and work in the same way.
