What Happens When You Stop Taking Yaz Birth Control Pills
Would birth control pills like Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) treat oligomenorrhea even after you stop taking them? And for how long do you take them as a treatment pls?
Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol): I suggest you see an OB if you want to treat oligomenorrhea, but hormones and naturopathic remedies can help as well. The BCP effects are not there unless they are taken regularly, and are the current main treatment to keep periods regular. If you have PCOS you need to see a Gyne-Endo to treat your problem effectively ...Read more
Also known as oral contraceptives, birth control pills are highly effective oral medications that use hormones to prevent pregnancy. There are two main types of birth control pills: one with estrogen and progestin (also known as the combination pill) and one with just progestin. The two main ways they prevent pregnancy are: 1) The hormones thicken the cervical mucous, which keeps sperm from entering the uterus on their way to the egg; and 2) By maintaining a level of hormone in the blood stream that prevents the ...Read more

Best option is treating the varicose veins so that this risk no longer exists, making birth control less of an issue ...Read more
Is it true that certain birth control pills (ocella/yaz/yasmin) may be leading to gallbladder issues?
Controversial: Women have twice the risk for gallstones compared to men. Both estrogen and Progesterone increase the risk of gallstones. Several studies have reached conflicting conclusions, one canadian study that suggested a 20% increased risk in contrast to an english study where the risk was 10% lower compared to women not taking bcp. This suggests that if there is a risk, it is not clinically significant. ...Read more

Can taking three birth control pills (Yaz) mid cycle make me two weeks late? Negative preg test today. Only symptom has been low side abdomen aches.
I got my last period on 3/22, started taking birth control pills (yaz) on 3/23, today 4/6 I experienced pinkish mucus & a little burn sensation, why?
Pill side effects: In the first 1-3 months after starting birth control pills, irregular bleeding (termed "breakthrough bleeding" is common. For almost everyone, periods become very regular and predictable after that time.

I have been taking birth control pills for 2 weeks (sprintec 1st week, Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) 2nd week) and have had continuous bleeding since yesterday. Is that normal?
Yes: Having irregular bleeding in the first 1-2 cycles of birth control pills is common. That's because the hormones in the pill are coming into balance with the women's hormones. If a woman has this breakthrough bleeding after the 3rd cycle she may need a different pill. Since you changed pills between the first 2 weeks there's more chance of bleeding. Take pill same time each day helps prevent this. ...Read more

Why are they saying Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) birth control pills cause more blood clots?
A small risk: Birth control pills contain an estrogen, which is almost universally the same regardless of brand, and a progestagen which varies with the brand. Different progetagens have different risks of causing blood clots, apparenly higher in the case of the progestagen in yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol). The risks and absolute differences are very small. Consider the difference between 1 in 10, 000 and 2 in 10, 000 for example. ...Read more

I've been on yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) birth control pills for 2 years now I need to take a course of antibiotics for sinus ifection with it effect my bcp please?
Does drinking 3 cups of green tea daily for a prolonged period of time decrease the effectiveness of the birth control pills? I take Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) for 2 years.
No: Drinking green tea 3 times a day does not change the effectiveness of birth control pills. Of course, no pills are 100% effective, so there is always a very small chance a woman could become pregnant while using birth control pills, regardless of whether she drinks tea or not. The healthier way to drink tea is without sugar or sweeteners. ...Read more
Can Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) birth control pills cause you to have some nipple discharge?
Are there any birth control pills available to treat PCOS that are low in estrogen/estrogen-free? I have migraines and am currently on Yaz, and want to reduce my stroke risk. I'm in college and the OBGYN clinic here on campus is very unhelpful.
Hmmm...: Short answer is yes: there are low-estrogen oral contraceptives. Not sure you'd want to do that, though. First, the ovarian cysts can only be controlled if ovulation is stopped, and this requires taking estrogen to inhibit pituitary FSH release. Without estrogen the cysts might rage out of control. This estrogen must (I believe) be balanced with progesterone and testosterone, EVEN in PCOS patients ...Read more
Does Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) have a higher risk of blood clots, stroke or heart attack than other birth control pills?
Slightly: The answer is a bit more complex. All birth control pills slightly increase your risk for blood clots. Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) and yasmin, have a Progesterone that has a sligtly higher risk then other birth control pills. That being said, the risk of blood clots during pregnancy is ten fold higher then this, yet most women don't avoid pregnancy because of that risk. The fda has not pulled Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) off the market. ...Read more
