No: I didn't see Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) listed on this website, but there are some other examples. Plan b is a much better option and can be purchased over the counter. A lot fewer side effects than taking 4-6 birth control pills. Check out the website though from princeton: http://ec.Princeton.Edu/questions/dose.Html.
