One Chemical Makes All the Difference
Drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol are found in different doses as the
main ingredients in Yaz, Yasmin, Ocella, Yasminelle, Beyaz, Safyral, and
Gianvi. Considered fourth generation oral contraceptives, these have become
one of the most popularly prescribed birth control pills in the United

ingredient drospirenone, a different compound from other synthetic progestins,
which is used to help eliminate acne.
This hormone is linked to an increased potassium level, which has the potential to cause
hyperkalemia, a dangerous blood condition, which may result in death. This combination
of hormones is also used to treat premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD).
PMDD is an intense form of premenstrual syndrome (PMS). Women suffering
from PMDD may experience severe emotional and physical symptoms one to
two weeks before the start of their menstrual flow.
Drospirenone containing oral contraceptives are not recommended for patients with:
Adrenal insufficiency — a lack of hormones made by the adrenal glands
Renal insufficiency — a lack of kidney function to maintain a normal state of health
Hepatic dysfunction — a lack of liver function
