Yarina should be taken as a contraceptive only by healthy women, or girls (women) who struggle with acne and acne.
But Yarina plus is used in case of contraception and acne treatment. To prevent pregnancy in women with a lack of folate in the body or with fluid retention, depending on the amount of hormones. Also, Yarina plus is preferable for women who plan to give birth to a baby some time after the contraception is canceled. Normal hormonal balance and the absence of unpleasant symptoms will have a beneficial effect on the conception of a child. In addition, Yarina plus is recommended for girls with a lack of folic acid.
Very often, Yarina plus is prescribed to girls who have an abortion. According to doctors, Yarina plus will be more beneficial for the female body, as it contains the necessary folic acid.
Hormonal drugs today are often prescribed to women and girls of all ages. And it’s not only the protection against unwanted pregnancy – a complete abstinence from intimate relationships gives a 100% guarantee. Since hormones are part of contraceptives, they are used to treat some female diseases. However, when choosing a hormonal drug, you need to remember that it should be prescribed by a doctor who has studied the individual characteristics of the patient.
Today, one of the most popular hormonal drugs is Yarina. However, she has an analogue – Yarina +.
Yarina and Yarina plus are combined oral contraceptives. Despite a similar effect on the female body, these drugs are different. What are the differences between them and which one is better to choose is described in detail below.
Yarina is a drug, which is coated tablets. The main function of Yarina is to prevent unwanted pregnancy. That is, it affects the process of egg maturation and the composition of the cervical mucus. In addition, the drug helps to establish the menstrual cycle, reduces the amount of fluid in the body and eliminates acne and seborrhea. The drug contains hormones such as estrogen, gestagen and drospirenone. The course for a month consists of 21 tablets, between the courses a break is made for 7 days.
Yarina plus is a medicine in the form of tablets in an orange shell. Yarina + is a contraceptive, but in addition to preventing pregnancy and normalizing menstruation, the drug reduces the risk of ovarian cancer and normalizes the menstrual cycle. Yarina + contains hormones similar to the first KOK. The monthly course consists of 28 tablets, 7 of which are “empty”, but thanks to them, the medication is not interrupted.
What is common between them
The active ingredients of Yarina and Yarina plus are ethinyl estradiol and drospirenone. In general, they have almost the same composition.
Yarina and Yarina plus have the following effects on the female body:
- Slow down the ovulation process.
- Change the composition of the cervical mucus, which is an obstacle to the movement of sperm.
- Change the structure of the endometrium (uterine mucosa), so the egg can not gain a foothold in it.
- Normalize menstruation.
- Reduce pain and discharge during menstruation.
Their contraindications are also the same:
- A complicated form of diabetes.
- Migraine headaches with neurological symptoms.
- Arterial or venous thrombosis.
- Probable pregnancy.
- Disturbed cerebral circulation.
- Allergy to the components that make up the preparations.
- Vaginal bleeding of unknown origin.
Also, the use of these funds is not recommended for:
- Liver disease.
- Vice of the heart.
- Diseases of the gastrointestinal tract.
- The postpartum period.
Acceptance of these COCs can cause the following side effects:
- Discharge from the mammary glands.
- Vaginal discharge of unknown origin (i.e., not monthly).
- Pressure increase.
- Decreased libido.
What is the difference between these drugs
Despite the fact that both drugs give the same effect, there is a slight difference in their composition. Yarina plus contains calcium levomefolate (a biologically active form of folic acid), which eliminates the lack of folate in the female body. Because of this, in different cases, a different drug is selected. A lack of folic acid in women is very common, which negatively affects their reproductive function.
Their other difference is that they drink Yarina for 21 days, then take a 7-day break, and Yarina’s plus package lasts 28 days, after which a new package is taken. 7 cancellation tablets do not contain hormones, folic acid remains in their composition, so the course of taking the tablets is not interrupted, which is very convenient for many girls.
If a side effect occurs, the drugs should be discontinued. A side effect is understood as migraine, vomiting, high blood pressure, pain and lumps in the mammary glands and other unpleasant symptoms that occurred when taking the tablets.
From the foregoing, it can be concluded that Yarina can be replaced with Yarina plus, treatment for this will not be less effective. However, you should not do this yourself; it is better to consult a doctor. Due to individual characteristics, different drugs may be prescribed for different women. Moreover, testing for a deficiency of a hormone or other tests is often required to determine the most effective method of treatment and protection.
Girls should also remember that Yarina and Yarina plus protect against unwanted pregnancy only with strict observance of the instructions for use (that is, a tablet taken after sexual intercourse no longer has any effect). However, they do not protect the female body from all kinds of sexually transmitted infections.
