Tydemy is an oral contraceptive which contains ethinyl estradiol, drospirenone, and levomefolate calcium. The drug is used to prevent pregnancy.
The active substances inhibit ovulation and produce a qualitative effect on the endometrium of the uterus. Drospirenone has antiandrogenic and soft antimineralocorticoid properties.
Weak antimineralocorticoid properties have a weak antimineralocorticoid effect.

Menstruation should begin on the 2nd-3rd day after the start of taking inert tablets and may not stop before the start of the next package.
