- Jasmiel may also be taken to treat moderate acne if you are at least 14 years old, have started having menstrual periods, want to use the birth control pill to prevent pregnancy, and your healthcare provider says it is safe for you to use Jasmiel

The most common side effects of birth control pills are spotting or bleeding between menstrual periods, nausea, breast tenderness, and headache.
Birth control pills increase the risk of serious blood clots, especially in women who have other risk factors, such as smoking, obesity, or age greater than 35. Women who use birth control pills with drospirenone (like Jasmiel), may have a higher risk of getting a blood clot. Some studies reported that the risk of blood clots was higher for women who use birth control pills that contain drospirenone than for women who use birth control pills that do not contain drospirenone.
Jasmiel has not been shown to be effective for the treatment of premenstrual syndrome (PMS).
