Hello! I expect my period in 9 days. If I start the pill (Yaz) immediately, will I postpone the bleeding? Many thanks!

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
