Post Yasmin: white and yellow pills?

What is the difference between all the yellow pills that you take and then the one week where you take the white pills?

I know the white pills are called the "placebo" week, I think. But what exactly is different about these? Do they contain different hormones? And what do they do?

The placebo week means that they are sugar pills and contain no hormones. This is to induce your period.

Thanks guys! Do most people experience problems like acne or PMS on the placebo pills? I'm really worried about that now. Will the estrogen levels drop significantly?

Hi again...as far as I've experienced with Yasmin, my complexion has gotten better and I'm not as moody or suffer too many symptoms with PMS. It's great - I've noticed weight loss too. Some other people have posted about Yasmin before and noted that their boobs got bigger - mine did too but just like everyone else, they do get very sore from time to time. Take care...
