I'm on the pill (yaz) and my period (the white pills) is due when my boyfriend is visiting. Is it safe and will it work if I skip a period?
It's ok!: If you have the 28 day pill package, discard the 7 placebo pills and start a new package Day 1 and continue the entire month. Some brands of pills come with the intent of one period every 3 months, but I do not recommend doing this consistently with Yaz, (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) as this BCP contains a progestin that has been linked with a slightly higher risk of blood clots, so the 7 day break is better.

I take Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) bc and i missed the last 11 days i had unprotected sex could i be pregnant and could i miss my period the following month from missing pill?
Possibly pregnant: Of course you could be pregnant. I doubt that you need a physician to tell you that when you miss your birth control pills you can be immediately fertile and have an increased risk of pregnancy from sperm deposited in the vagina. It sounds like it may be time for a pregnancy test. ...Read more
