Zarah Birth Control Information

As the generic form of Yasmin®, Zarah™ (drospirenone/ethinyl estradiol) is a combined oral contraceptive -- a birth control pill that contains an estrogen and a progestin. This product comes in tablet form and is taken once a day. Zarah has been shown to be an effective birth control method in a large clinical trial. In this study, for every 100 women who used the drug for a year, fewer than 1 became pregnant.
 
Most women are able to use this medication without any problems. The most common side effects include headaches, breast pain, and nausea. However, before using this form of birth control, review Zarah's safety information and let your healthcare provider know if you have any medical conditions or are taking any other medications.
 
It is very important to take Zarah consistently. Missing doses, or not taking it at the same time every day, can increase your risk of pregnancy.
