Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) NOT EC. : Sorry, but Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) can not be taken as emergency contraception. Please take your birth control pill as soon as you remember when you miss a regular dose. And better yet, why don't you consider being on a long-acting reversible form of contraception, like an IUD or implant. That way you don't have to worry about forgetting the pill and becoming pregnant until you're ready! Good luck!

Not as effective: The progestin in Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) (drosperinone) is different than the one in Plan B (levonorgestrel) Emergency Contraception (EC), which has proven ability to prevent unintended pregnancy. Drosperinone has not been shown to be effective as EC. Use Plan B (if wt <17lbs) or Ella (wt b/w 175 &198lbs) asap. Consider IUD or Implant - highly effective and no pills to forget.

Unlikely.: The most fertile time of the month is about 2 weeks from the start of your period assuming that you have a period every 28 days. If your periods are shorter than 28 days, it is possible that you could have hit the fertile time. You will have to wait until you miss your period to get a pregnancy test. There is no way to tell if you are pregnant where you are in your cycle now.

Spotting is common: Spotting is very common in the first few weeks after you start taking Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) injections. It is expected to resolve in coming months. If it does not resolve then you should see your gynecologist for examination.
