Check a pregnancy test if you are sexually active, and certainly consider talking to an ob/gyn about ways to regulate your cycle. ...Read more

How long does the brown spotting last...beeen taking Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) for nearly two wks. Period finished a wk ago. Makes me emotional.

Variable: Spotting on any birth control pill may last up to 3 months or longer. If it is present even in the second pack then it is best to switch your pill. This dose may be low for you. Or the combination in Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) may not be suitable for you. You can try Loestrin 1/20 and see what happens or you can go to a higher dose Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) which is called Yasmin. I know it is frustrating to have this spotting last so long. ...Read more

You: You should continue the pill for 2-3 more days and then use alternative birth control (such as a condom) until you speak with your doctor. There are many different brands of birth control pills out there and not all of them will give you the side effects you are currently experiencing. Give your doctor a call and consider a switch to a new one. Depending on what hormone combination you are on now, your doctor will know what to prescribe to lessen your symptoms. Sometimes it takes a little trial and error to find the right pill for you. ...Read more
