How Long Until My Body Adjusts To My Yaz Birth Control I Started Two Weeks Ago
How long until my body adjusts to my Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) birth control? I started two weeks ago.
3 months: Women often can have changes in their cycles that take a couple months to regulate when they start a new pill. Some common side effects are spotting midcycle, or periods coming early or late, for instance. Other minor side effects like nausea can occur as well. Usually these sort themselves out by about 3 months of use. If they continue or symptoms are severe, talk to your doc. ...Read more

Should be short: Everyone is differnet, I do not like that pill because of the kind of progesterone, hopefully your doc discussed that with you, it can cause problems in combo with certain meds like anti-inflammatories, I use loloestrin 10 mcg estrogen the lowset and safest dose and no problems if you take anti-inflammatories. ...Read more
Usually how long can Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) birth control say in your system after taking it for over a year?
Not long: Once a person stops taking birth control pills, within several days they will start to initiate production of the signals in the brain to stimulate production of ovarian hormones and cysts ('eggs'). The length of time that you have taken the pill shouldn't cause increased duration of suppression of normal hormonal production. ...Read more
How long after discontinuing birth control (yaz) before periods start again? Had 1 3 months later and none in 2 months. No chance of pregnancy.
Irregular cycles: Birth control pills are often used to regulate cycles. If this is the case you may not regulate. More likely though, you are in the peri menopausal period and may space your periods as you get to menopause. Menopause is defined as more than a year without periods. The time leading up to this is marked by irregular cycles. Hope this helps. ...Read more

I have been on Yaz birth control for two weeks. And have developed a dull pain behind my right knee to calf. Should I relax/see a doc?
I would!: Calf pain can be a sign of a blood clot. You are at increased risk of this on birth control pills. Get checked now! It may be something else, but don't take chances. A clot in your leg can break off and spread to your lung (pulmonary embolus), which is very, very serious. Don't take chances. Find out for sure what is going on. ...Read more

Yaz causing heart problems? I am taking Yaz birth control pills and lately I have noticed my heart beating abnormally. Sometimes when I lie down I can feel it beating over my entire body, sometimes skipping a beat. I often experience nausea along with t
Not likely: This sounds as if you're uncomfortable, and you should discuss this with your primary doctor, but not likely due to yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol). Nausea may be present in first 1-3 months of yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol). Try taking in the evening, but if it is occurring the first few months, it's likely to get better. Discuss benefits/risks of Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) with your doctor. ...Read more

How long does it take Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) (birth control pill) to help clear acne?
Give it time: I usually advise patients to give "the pill" at least 3 cycles to determine if they will experience clearing of acne. Continue to use topical acne solutions AND take some before and after pictures of your skin to convince yourself that things are better or worse. If you do not experience at least some resolution of acne symptoms discuss with your doctor. ...Read more
Would birth control pills like Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) treat oligomenorrhea even after you stop taking them? And for how long do you take them as a treatment pls?
Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol): I suggest you see an OB if you want to treat oligomenorrhea, but hormones and naturopathic remedies can help as well. The BCP effects are not there unless they are taken regularly, and are the current main treatment to keep periods regular. If you have PCOS you need to see a Gyne-Endo to treat your problem effectively ...Read more

Does drinking 3 cups of green tea daily for a prolonged period of time decrease the effectiveness of the birth control pills? I take Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) for 2 years.
No: Drinking green tea 3 times a day does not change the effectiveness of birth control pills. Of course, no pills are 100% effective, so there is always a very small chance a woman could become pregnant while using birth control pills, regardless of whether she drinks tea or not. The healthier way to drink tea is without sugar or sweeteners. ...Read more

Spotted immediately after unprotected sex. Have had brown spotting for two days. Period was supposed to end 2 days ago. Taking Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) birth control. Help?
Post coital bleed: If you had some remaining menstrual tissue that hadn't been expelled during your period, sex may cause it to come out. Female orgasm and sex in general causes some uterine cramping (contractions). The other concern would be a cervical infection and bleeding from the penis hitting the cervix with subsequent bleeding. ...Read more
I am on metronidazole for BV. I only have two pills left and I had unprotected sex. Will this cancel out my Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) birth control? Could I get pregnant?

Forgot to take my birth control pill (Yaz) & I was 20 hours late. Besides contraception issues, how bad is it for my health to take it that late?
Take it Now: If you are late taking just 1 pill, it may not give you much trouble. Some women will experience breakthrough bleeding which is irregular bleeding in this cycle. It will definitely reduce your birth control efficacy. I always advise patients to use another form of birth control if they miss a pill. Do not think in general they pose significant health issues. ...Read more
Birth control & vein: There are many risk factors for developing blood clots & the more risk factors that you have the higher the chance that you could develop a blood clot. Both hormonal birth control & varicose veins increase your risk for blood clots, so adding the 2 risks is worse than 1 risk alone. Best option is treating the varicose veins so that this risk no longer exists, making birth control less of an issue ...Read more
