If I vomit around 2hours of taking yaz, (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) should I take another one? And use protection for 7 days?

Maybe. Are you saying that you took your birth control and then threw it up in 2 hours. Did you take another Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) 2 hours later and it stayed down? If that's the case and you were only late by 2 hours, then you don't need to use a back up.

You may want to obtain a pelvic sonogram and a gynecological exam to confirm the location and viability of your pregnancy. This information should allow you to make some informed decision.
