Yaz Missed Pill
Missed last Yaz active pill on Sun. Took a 4day pill free break. Had sex on 3rd break day; took active pill on Thur. Do i need Emergency contraception?

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.
