Take 2 pills for 2 d: Take 2 pills for next 2 days and it will still be effective. And continue one a day as usual and do not forget to take pills anymore. If you forget 3days in a raw, then stop the bcp for that month. If you are on the fourth week of the bcp cycle, forgetting 2 days in a raw does not affect contraception as they are sugar pills anyway. ...Read more

Period delays: Yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) is a low dose oral contraceptive. Taking the oral contraceptive at the same time (within an hour of the previous day) makes the pill more safe to rely on. Five days may not be enough time to see bleeding from pill withdrawal. Obtain a serum (not urine) pregnancy test if no bleeding before the seventh day, and if negative, start the next package of pills. You may want to change the type. ...Read more
