I complete my 21 days of yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) pills last august 2 then I got my early period august 5. Do I need to start the active pills?

Yes, as directed.: Your period is triggered by the drop in progesterone that occurs after taking your last active pill but there's a delay of at least 48 hours. It's very important to start your next pill pack one week after you finish the last active pill. In this case, that's Sunday, August 9. ...Read more

Breakthrough bleed: Breakthrough bleeding (bleeding at the wrong time) is very normal on birth control. It happens in about 1/3 of users. Its no big deal and usually self corrects over time. If you are not satisfied or it continues to happen then consider using a different birth control method. It is a common side effect and does not mean something is wrong or that the pill is not working. ...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

I recently got on the pill (Yasmin) last day of period but stopped after 4 days due to side effects. A few days later I got my period again! Normal?

I recently got on the pill (Yasmin) last day of period but stopped after 4 days due to side effects. A few days later I got my period again! Normal?

Period: First, make sure you are not pregnant with a home test. The likely cause of your bleeding is progestin withdrawl. This occurs when the pill is suddenly stopped, which trigger the uterus to bleed, even though you only used 4 days worth. Also, uterine fibroids can cause irregular bleeding (can be seen on ultrasound), and well as hormonal irregularities. ...Read more

OCP and no period: Birth control pills can the lining thin and so it may take a while until your body adjust to it. It may make your cycles irregular or you may not have any bleeding. If you are comfortable using Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) as a birth control method, I would not stop taking it but I would monitor the bleeding. ...Read more
