Yaz contains 3 mg of drospirenone and 0.02 mg of ethinyl estradiol, whereas Yasmin and Ocella contain 3 mg of the progestin hormone drospirenone and 0.03 mg of the estrogen hormone ethinyl estradiol.
Bayer Pharmaceuticals manufactures Yaz and Yasmin, while Ocella is the generic version of Yasmin sold by Teva Pharmaceuticals.
