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?

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, (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) 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

Mo period: You should feel no different than usual. Just take an active pill every day. Women who do this for an extended time (>3 months) often do have abnormal bleeding.Skipping the placebos on occasion should pose no problem. ...Read more

Maybe: It is not uncommon with pills like Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) to have a very light or absent period. Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) only has 4 days of placebo so this is common. If unsure you can always do a pregnancy test. ...Read more

Should have no bleed: Once your embryo has implanted into your uterus and begins to grow, there should normally be no vaginal bleeding resembling a 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 (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) 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
