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.

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 more

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. Read more

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?

Sometimes: A period will not come the first minths. Do not skip tablets and you will be ok. In the I ferest od safety oral contraceptives do not have too much estrogen and this is what happens. 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?)

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 more

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?

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).

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?

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.
