Is yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) pill can be use as a emergency contraceptive pills? In uae, we don't have the emergency pills. Badly need help. Thanks

No: I'm sorry, but yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) does not contain the correct type of Progesterone hormone to equal the emergency contraceptive pill we have in the us. Go to the pharmacy and find a birth control pill that contains Levonorgestrel hormone. A combo pill is okay. Take enough tablets to equal 1.5 mg of levonorgestrel, and that will be equal to the Plan B medication we have here in the us. Good luck.
