Alternatives: The concern is over the drospirenone (synthetic progesterone) component of the pill. Some studies suggest that Yasmin and Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) may have a higher risk of venous blood clots than older birth control pills.

Ovulating? Yes!: Birth control pills prevent pregnancy by tricking your body into thinking it's pregnant. Therefore you won't ovulate. No ovulation means no egg. No egg means no pregnancy.

If you want to determine whether you're pregnant or not, you need to take pregnancy test, not ovulation prediction test. ...Read more

I'm on Yasmin, I finished my last pill (before placebos) on Sat. Got period today (Wed) but want to stop period, can I start new pack of pills to stoP?

Generally yes...: I would want to know how old you are & if you have have any kidney probs before saying 100% yes. However, this should in general be safe & most OCPs can actually isbe taken for three months at a time with good safety in most women & then a break is recommended. Over time most woman's periods get lighter & some do not get them during the break. With Yasmin rec routine labs to check K periodically. ...Read more
