Not weight loss drug: Yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) is primarily designed to be a birth control pill. Birth control pills are many times prescribed for reasons beyond birth control, e.g., to regulate the menstrual cycle, to treat endometriosis, or to help with mentrual cramps. Weight control is a complex problem. If taking a birth control helps to improve overall well-being, a woman may find the motivation to follow through with weight loss
