Yasmin Combined Pill
Hi I have spotting that is barely there due to missing a pill if i double up will the spotting be gone by tomorrow night? I'm on Yasmin
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
I've been on my pill (yasmin) for about six years. I love its benefits and i don't want to change, but i spot all the time. Its embarassing. Thoughts?
Breakthrough bleed: Breakthrough bleeding (bleeding at the wrong time) is very common on birth control. It happens in about 1/3 of users. Its no big deal and usually self corrects over time.

I would suggest talking with your doctor about using a different form of contraceptive, or use an alternative to depakote. ...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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is it okey, if you do not follow the day sequence written at the back of yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) pills when taking them? but rather use your own random sequence yet ta
Why random?: Realistically- you need to take the colored (active) pills daily untill they are finished then you can take the white (placebo) pills. You should take the active and placebo pills at random because there is a good chance the pills won't do there job at preventing pregnancy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
