Conception: Usually mid cycle is the best time to conceive. Remember, although you may have flow, it does not mean you always produced and egg. You should remember that stopping BCP is like coming off a pregnancy. It may take up to 6 months to conceive. Can be sooner, but do not get frustrated if things do not happen in the first few months. ...Read more

I'm on the pill (yaz) and my period (the white pills) is due when my boyfriend is visiting. Is it safe and will it work if I skip a period?
It's ok!: If you have the 28 day pill package, discard the 7 placebo pills and start a new package Day 1 and continue the entire month. Some brands of pills come with the intent of one period every 3 months, but I do not recommend doing this consistently with Yaz, (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) as this BCP contains a progestin that has been linked with a slightly higher risk of blood clots, so the 7 day break is better. Also, be safe! ...Read more
I stopped yaz one month ago. Period comes on 1st dec. I started folic acid monday 28th nov. Can I try to conceive?
O.K. to conceive:
It is O.K. trying to conceive after the last pack of birth control pills has been finished.
To reap the full benefits from prenatal folic acid this should be started several months before trying to conceive - ultimately it depends on a woman's folic acid stores. It will be difficult, though, to get a health insurance carrier to pay for folic acid levels. ...Read more

Birth control pills: Women who take birth control pills need to take a pill every day. Skipping pills can increase the chance of getting pregnant. Birth control pill packets usually include 4 to 7 days of hormone-free pills each month. It is during these hormone-free days that women get their period. Women who prefer not to get a period can skip the hormone-free pills and take a hormone pill every day instead. ...Read more

Took 4 yaz pills 36 hours after the unprotected incident & 4 12 hours later. Y now getting spotting/bleeding even though period isn't till jan 7th '18?
Some thoughts...: Taking multiple birth control pills as an emergency contraceptive can alter the menstrual bleeding or spotting for the cycle in which the pills were taken, and sometimes the next cycle too. One should be sure to check a home pregnancy test about 3 weeks after sex, because emergency contraceptive pills work most of the time, but not all the time. ...Read more

Hello! I expect my period in 9 days. If I start the pill (Yaz) immediately, will I postpone the bleeding? Many thanks!
Yes!: Each Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) pack contains 24 light pink active pills 4 inert white pills. You may be able to delay your period by starting a new pack instead of taking the white inert pills. You are still protected from pregnancy if you do this. Some women have some breakthrough spotting when they do this but its a pretty good way to delay a period for some important event. Best wishes! ...Read more

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
