Yes it is likely: Irregular menses are not uncommon when you are taking birth control pills especially if you take a break from taking the pill daily.

Yes normal: Continuous cycling with Yasmin and most BCPs are entirely safe. Woman commonly have breakthrough bleeding on the pill, especially with lower dose estrogens
