Variable: Spotting on any birth control pill may last up to 3 months or longer. If it is present even in the second pack then it is best to switch your pill. This dose may be low for you. or the combination in Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) may not be suitable for you. You can try Loestrin 1/20 and see what happens or you can go to a higher dose Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) which is called Yasmin. I know it is frustrating to have this spotting last so long. ...Read more

Some thoughts...: If the Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) is not fully effective that first pack of pills (or maybe the first 2 packs), then a woman might ovulate. If she ovulates, then she is fertile around ovulation, which is about days 11-16 for a very regular 28-day cycle. But, she is not fertile (due to her period, not due to starting yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol)) when she is having her regular period of 5 days or so, when she first starts her first pack of yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol). ...Read more

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.

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

Not pregnant: First, the chance you could get pregnant from having sex on the last day of your period is vanishingly small. Second, you are protected by yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol). Some doctors recommend a second method of protection while on Bactrim because some antibiotics induce cyp3a4, a liver enzyme that breaks down yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol). However, neither sulfamethoxazole nor trimethoprim--the two antibiotics in bactrim--are enzyme inducers. ...Read more

Irregular cycles: Birth control pills are often used to regulate cycles. If this is the case you may not regulate. More likely though, you are in the peri menopausal period and may space your periods as you get to menopause. Menopause is defined as more than a year without periods. The time leading up to this is marked by irregular cycles. Hope this helps. ...Read more
