I took Yasmin tablets for 3 months and I was pregnant during the third month. Not reliable I will say. Actually none of the contraceptives are reliable.

Yasmin tablet is very effective birth control pill but if you are taking it later in your cycle then you need to use other protective measures. As yasmin takes a little bit time to show its effects by the time you can use condoms and other measure to stay protected.
