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

Unlikely: About 1% to 3% of women using any oral contraceptive will still conceive - that means at least 1% to 3% of women ovulate while taking the pill. That risk is increased when women are non-compliant with taking a pill each day. The lower dose pills such as Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) (and the generics) have a higher failure rate and up to 5% of women will ovulate while taking that particular pill. ...Read more

Maybe: This is a progestin only pill and progestins can cause depression in some women but not in all. The estrogen in birth control pills increases sex hormone binding globulin which binds testosterone and decreases the free, biologically active testosterone.Testosterone causes acne so the lower level is what helps your skin. With no estrogen, I would not expect cerazette to help your skin. ...Read more

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

By : By the date of this post almost a week has passed. I hope you continued the pills as directed. If not and you are still spotting contact your doctor for instructions. Since you obviously don't like getting periods every month you should try seasonique. This is a bcp designed to give you a period once every three months. Ask your doctor if he/she thinks this is a good option for you. Best of luck. ...Read more
