Birth Control Pill May Provide Relief for PMS

The physical and emotional symptoms associated with a woman’s menstrual cycle were significantly reduced in women taking the combination of drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol contained in the oral contraceptive Yasmin, as reported in a study published in the Journal of Reproductive Medicine. This reduction of menstrual-related symptoms led to a significant improvement in women’s health-related quality of life and overall sense of well-being.
