Can you get pregnant.While taking Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) and I only been on it for about two weeks.?

Maybe: You can always have a failure on ocps, despite taking them properly, the rate is low, but the overall rate is higher, mostly in relation to not taking them properly. If you miss a pill, you should take it as soon as you realize it. If you miss two, you need to use alternate birth control. ...Read more

A month but: I suggest waiting at least a month to let the hormone get out of your system. However, understand that it may take several months for your cycles to regulate after stopping the pill. You will be able to get pregnant as soon as you are having regular periods off the pill. ...Read more

I started taking my new pack of birth control (yaz) a week late and had unprotected sex three days later. Could I be pregnant?

I started taking my new pack of birth control (yaz) a week late and had unprotected sex three days later. Could I be pregnant?

Yes you can.: The birth control effects \may actually take one cycle to work, although it usually protects immediately a female from pregnancy if started late, as you did. If you miss your period, a pregnancy test is in order. However, it appears that the sexual activity took place just vbefore your fertile period! hope that is some consolation. ...Read more

First time taking yaz, (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) can period does not come?And if yes, how many days you have to wait to take pregnant test?

Yes: Sometimes, women will miss periods on birth control pills, but not regularly. Take a pregnancy test when you get to the end of the pack if you missed a few pills, and, even if you didn't. If negative and you're still worried, wait 5-7 days and take another test. If not pregnant by then, it's unlikely. Make sure to continue the pills however, as they won't harm a pregnancy. ...Read more

When taking yaz, (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) can it reduce the chance of getting pregnant when you stop it?And the rate of birth problems is high?

Be Careful: The company that produces the birth control pill "yaz" (generic: drospirenone/ethinyl estradiol, by Bayer (aspirin) pharmaceuticals), just finished a large, class-action lawsuit for the drug being shown to cause DVT (deep vein thrombosis) and many women were awarded hundreds-of-thousands of dollars, as a result. There are safer alternatives, please speak to your pcp or ob-gyn for options! ...Read more

Even : Even if you hadn't vomited oral contraceptives are not 100% effective. In practical usage the rate is 96-98%. Practical usage incorporates factors such as missed or late pills. In your case if you had taken all the other pills you are likely in the 96% proctection range. From the date of your question i suspect you know the answer to by now. Please let us know. ...Read more

When taking Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) on the first day of your period, how many days after are you protected against pregnancy without using condoms?

First pack of pills?: In reality, a woman is not fertile during the few days of her real period. When starting her first pack of birth control, she can use condoms in addition to the pills, for more protection. If she is taking a pill every day at the same hour, and doesn't miss any pills, then she doesn't have to use condoms for preg. Prevention during the second pack of pills. But, condoms do prevent other diseases. ...Read more

Been taking OCP Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) placebo since Saturday just gone and still no period and not pregnant, should I start a new pack or keep waiting for period?

Been taking OCP Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) placebo since Saturday just gone and still no period and not pregnant, should I start a new pack or keep waiting for period?

Re-start pill now: It is common for low dose contraceptives to NOT produce anything other than slight brown period "bleeding" or no "bleeding" at all to remind you when to start the next pack. As long as you took the pill everyday as directed, the pill "period" is only hormonal withdrawal bleeding, and denotes only the aforementioned need to re-start the next pack. ...Read more
