Can Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) be taken as the morning after pill?

Yes; "Plan B" better. Plan b is better, but you can take 3-4 Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) now, and repeat in 12 hours. Need to start within 72 hours of "the event..." if period over 10 days late, get preg test...
Yes with conditions. Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) should be taken two pills daily for 3 to 5 days within 24 hours of the unprotected intercourse event. It doies not "guarantee" that implantation will be avoided in all cases.

Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) NOT EC. . Sorry, but Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) can not be taken as emergency contraception. Please take your birth control pill as soon as you remember when you miss a regular dose. And better yet, why don't you consider being on a long-acting reversible form of contraception, like an IUD or implant. That way you don't have to worry about forgetting the pill and becoming pregnant until you're ready! Good luck! . Read more...
Not as effective. The progestin in Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) (drosperinone) is different than the one in Plan B (levonorgestrel) Emergency Contraception (EC), which has proven ability to prevent unintended pregnancy. Drosperinone has not been shown to be effective as EC. Use Plan B (if wt <17lbs) or Ella (wt b/w 175 &198lbs) asap. Consider IUD or Implant - highly effective and no pills to forget. . Read more...

I started taking yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) for the first time on Tuesday (on second day of cycle) then had unprotected sex on Saturday should I take the morning after pill?

No. No, you started the birth control pill (BCP) early on in your cycle which is correct. As long as you are taking the BCP every day (try to do it around the same time each day) then the contraceptive works correctly. No need to take Plan B. The progesterone component of the pill makes the lining incompatible with an embryo and also prevents ovulation. Read more...
