Missed Period On Yaz
On Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) pill skipped period but got period 2weeks later on white pills. Why?
Missed pills?: Bleeding usually occurs when the hormonal levels drop. Theoretically, if you take the pills at the same time everyday and never miss a pill, your hormone levels should stay the same and so you should not bleed. But in reality, there is a standard distribution of people in the population for whom 'normal' does not apply and there is variability. ...Read more
A missed period is when you don't have a period at your normal time. Because a missed period can be due to pregnancy, even a period that is signficantly lighter or shorter can be considered a missed period and possible pregnancy. And having early symptoms of early pregnancy such as sore breasts or mild nausea would increase ...Read more
Off Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) BC 4 weeks. Had protected sex week after "pill period". Missed period (due today). Tender breasts & lower back. Pregnant/withdrawal from pill?

Totally normal: Assuming you have not missed any pills and could be pregnant, but with loloestrin the low dose of the hormone can make you miss your periods which is fine and great choice at your age as u should be on the lowest dose combo pill which is loloestrin and if u do not want any more children an in office essure tubal is the way to go, easy, takes 5 minutes my pts are awake, covered by insurance. ...Read more
Got provera (medroxyprogesterone) withdrawl bleed on Sunday, then started bc pill again...following Sunday got period! Continue pill pack? Why period now?
Yes continue pills: you may continue to have breakthrough or unpredictable bleeding while taking the pill. Continue to use birth control pills as prescribed. not all bleeding is "your period" , and you do not get a " period" on the pill. bleeding that occurs on hormonal contraception (like the birth control pill , ring or patch) is a withdrawal bleed if during the placebo pills, or breakthrough bleed other times. ...Read more
Very light brownish spotting 6 days before period. On birth control pills. Havent missed one. Start period this sunday. What is the spotting?
BTB: Did you miss any pills or take them late? Have you been on other medicines, especially antibiotics? Have you been sick, nausea or diarrhea? Do you have a vaginal infection? Lots of things, or nothing, can lead to irregular bleeding on the birth control pill. Usually the next cycle will be better and pregnancy is unlikely, but condoms are always a good idea. ...Read more
Switched from mononessa to vestura (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol). no period 1st month, on 3rd pill of 2nd pack. never missed period, HPT was neg. on last day of placebos. Normal?
Missed the pill on 2nd birth control pack. Took it ASAP followed by that days pill on schedule. Waited 7 days before sex. Missed period. Pregnant????
Unlikely: Missing a pill as you describe would not interfere with the effectiveness of your bcp in preventing pregnancy. BUT, being on pill is not foolproof. Best to do home pregnancy test on first morning urine. If neg, repeat in 7-10 days. If both neg, then unlikely you are pregnant. Continue your BCP as scheduled. If still no period by next cycle, see your gyn provider. Hope this was helpful. ...Read more

Do i take placebo Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) pill if my period came on active pills?
Continue: Continue taking your pills; you won't be sure, if what you are experiencing is just "breakthrough bleeding" and you will still come on your regular menses. You want to be sure to stay in sync when you start your new pack. If you ever stop taking bcp anywhere in the pack, while on the hormone pills, you will have a withdrawal bleeding. If the breakthrough bleeding continues, you may need to switch. ...Read more
Overweight. Pcos. Started yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol). Got first period. Still cramping and brown spotting a week later. Missed a pill. Not pregnant. Sex burns, hurts?
See a Doctor: Please discuss this issue of sex causing burning sensation to your doctor. You will need to be checked for vaginal infections like bacterial vaginosis. Some women who have prolonged bleeding days and therefore use a lot of tampons will have dryness and sex may hurt. Stop your tampons and use sanitary napkins for a few cycles to see if it helps. Also, treating an infection will also help. Good Luc ...Read more
Spotting a week before my period and into my period week. Sexually active. On birth control. Took HPT on day period was supposed to come- negative?
Repeat test: You may wish to repeat the test in 4-5 days, unless you get a period by then. Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about 2-3 weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

Irregular periods got my period missed 4 bc pills started bleeding again had unprotected sex not back on the pills could i be pregnant?
Bad odor, no discharge. On orthocyclen (ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate) first month, on inactive pills. No period. No period month before bc. Possibly pregnant?
Possible: Its not unusual to not have a period on the pill, check a upt. The odor could likely be improved by a short course of antibiotic. You could use a vinegar douch but do so carefully in that too much pressure could cause push bacteria to go into uterus creating an infection? The upt is the way to go, no one will tell you you can't be pregnant unless you have no uterus. Good luck. ...Read more
