Missed the last Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) pill on the second row of pack, am I still safe?
I missed 4 days on Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) birth control started a new pack then my period came I stopped the pack to see if it would stop but it didn't why haven't it?
Bleeding on OCP: If you missed a couple of days of the birth control pills, especially with the lower dose pills, it will cause the irregular bleeding. The bleeding is due to the changes in birth control pills and the changes your body undergoes with the shifts in hormone levels. If you are not pregnant, it should stop after 1 or 2 cycles. Read more
Pls explain how to take the 24 day pill (Yaz). After finishing 24 active pills, when to start the new pack? Started first pack on fifth day of period.
Birth control pills: Women who take birth control pills need to take a pill every day. Skipping pills can increase the chance of getting pregnant. Birth control pill packets usually include 4 to 7 days of hormone-free pills each month. It is during these hormone-free days that women get their period. Women who prefer not to get a period can skip the hormone-free pills and take a hormone pill every day instead. Read more
I just started my first pack of YAZ, (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) and today I take my first white pill... will I get my period today?
During last days: Birth control pills may have 4 or 7 pills at the end of the cycle. Once your are on those pills, you may see a menstrual period. It may not start exactly the day you start the white pills, it may not end exactly the day you start your new pack, and you may not have a menstrual period at all. Whenever you interrupt taking bcp, you are likely to experience a hormone withdrawal bleeding. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
First month taking yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol). 3 pills left on first pack. No period yet. Sexually active, always uses condoms. Why no period yet?
Sometimes: Pills like this can make u not have periods due to the fact u do not build up enough tissue to have a period, since this is your 1st pack you should do a preg test to prove to yourself u are not pregnant, it is totally normal not to get periods when you are on low dose pills, once u stop the pills the [periods will return.

I missed the 4th active tablet of my oral contraceptive. I have been in this brand for a while. I continued to take the rest of my pack. Am I safe.
Decreased Efficacy: Missing one pill of a pack of oral contraceptives can reduce the effectiveness of the contraception for that cycle. You should take the missed pill the next day (with the appropriate pill). If you miss 2 pills in a cycle, you should use condoms until you have been on the pills for at least 2 weeks.

Having 30d cycle of period, 2morrow I take my last white pill of my 1st pack of yaz (started on 1st day period), is it possible that period do not come?
If the period does not come on the last day of taking white pill (1st pack of yaz), still start a new pack the day after? When do u take pregnant test?
I'm on Yaz birth control pill. Last Tue (the second wk) I missed 1 pill. I was supposed to take 2 pills the next day but I lost 1 pill so I only took 1. I've been taking 1 pill everyday since then but I'm still missing 1 pill. What do I do now? Thx.
Continue: Continue taking 1 pill daily. Doubling up at this point will not be helpful. Hopefully all will be fine. All the best. Read more
Taking yaz, (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) and I dropped a pink pill and could not find it what should I do? Take the pill of the next day? (so start a new pack a day before expected?)
Yes: If you lose one of your active pills you can either take the next days pill or skip to the end of the pack and take the last active pill. The advantage of skipping to the last pill is that the days will be labeled correctly for the rest of the cycle-when you get to that last empty pill slot just skip it. This way you will start your next cycle on the correct day and still be protected. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Missed my 24th Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) active pill on Sun. Took a 4day pill free break per instruction. Had sex on 3rd break day; took active pill on Thur. Do I need ECP?
Wouldn't think so: A person who takes her birth control pills properly is protected against pregnancy all the time. All the time means every day protection, regardless of which pill she is on. Protection is there, while on the active pills and while on the inactive pills (being on the pill-free break is the same as being on the inactive pills, because inactive pills don't do anything).

1 pack of yaz (started on 1st day of period)had sex without condom on 13th day, 2morow I take last white pill. No period. Can I be preg? When I take test?
Missed last Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) active pill on Sun. Took a 4day pill free break. Had sex on 3rd break day; took active pill on Thur. Do I need Emergency contraception?
That depends: If a pill break is scheduled to allow for menstruation (just like the inactive pills are meant to do), then you remain protected during that break and do not need to use emergency contraception. If the break was taken mid-cycle (< 3 weeks since your last inactive pill cycle or "pill break") then protection would be diminished, and emergency contraception would reduce the chance of pregnancy.

Missed Sun and Mon YAZ pills Week 2. Tues I took 3 pills (2 AM and 1 PM) Wed I took 2 pills (1 AM 1 PM). Unprotected sex Friday. Do I need Plan B?
Yes: Doubling up on pills doesn't guarantee you the same protection. All the best. Read more
