Dear doctors, I would like to find out if it is safe to take Yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) pills for 3 months without any break. ?

Dear doctors, I would like to find out if it is safe to take Yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) pills for 3 months without any break. ?

Most doctors agree that it is probably safe to go up to 4 months at a time. The uncertainty lies with the unknown effects of prolonged estrogen stimulation without a break. ...Read more

Spotting is common: Spotting is common after missing a birth control pill. It is usually recommended to take the missed pill once you realize that you missed it. Due to the fluctuation in hormone levels from missing that pill, you may have intermittent light spotting for the next week, but it will most likely resolve after a day or so. You also must use backup contraception for the rest of the pill pack. ...Read more
