Yes: If your do an extended cycle with your OCP, the after you have taken at least 21 pills you can stop the active pill at any time to induce a period. After 5 to 7 days you can resume the active pill again. ...Read more
I'm on the pill (yaz) and my period (the white pills) is due when my boyfriend is visiting. Is it safe and will it work if I skip a period?
It's ok!: If you have the 28 day pill package, discard the 7 placebo pills and start a new package Day 1 and continue the entire month. Some brands of pills come with the intent of one period every 3 months, but I do not recommend doing this consistently with Yaz, as this BCP contains a progestin that has been linked with a slightly higher risk of blood clots, so the 7 day break is better. Also, be safe! ...Read more

If you're on Yaz and somehow get pregnant, do you still have your period because of the pill or you'll miss the period ?

You may want to obtain a pelvic sonogram and a gynecological exam to confirm the location and viability of your pregnancy. This information should allow you to make some informed decision. ...Read more
I take Yaz bc and i missed the last 11 days i had unprotected sex could i be pregnant and could i miss my period the following month from missing pill?
Possibly pregnant: Of course you could be pregnant. I doubt that you need a physician to tell you that when you miss your birth control pills you can be immediately fertile and have an increased risk of pregnancy from sperm deposited in the vagina. It sounds like it may be time for a pregnancy test. ...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
