I went in for birthcontrol and my doctor put me on Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol). I'm very worried about blood clots, is it likely I'll get them? How can I prevent them?

Estrogen. Estrogen increases the risk of blood clots but, unless u have an underlying medical problem that predisposes u to clots, your baseline risk at 18 is extremely small and even doubling it the risk remains very small.To decrease the risk even more avoid tobacco use, stay well hydrated, and move around ( being sedentary increases the risk).Pregnancy is an increased estrogen state and increases risk 2.

Is it normal when you have bleeding when you are on Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) birthcontrol?

No. When taking a birth control pill, one should only have bleeding episodes during the placebo pills of the pill pack. If you are bleeding during the active pills of the pack, that is not supposed to be happening. It can occur during the first 2-3 months of taking the pills (as your body 'adjusts' to the hormones) but it shouldn't be a persistent occurrence. Read more...

So I started birth control with Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) a month ago&i noticed I don't get my period when I'm on the white pills I get it when it go back to the pink pills?

Normal. Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) has only 4 inactive pills (the white ones) at the end of the pack, compared to the more traditional 7. Starting these pill triggers the process that leads to a period, but it usually takes a few days for your period to show up. By that time you are often already back on the active pills when you are using one of these "24-4" pills. Read more...

I'm on the Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) bc pill. During week 2 I skipped the pill on mon kept taking it for the rest of the week and had unprotected sex on fri can I get pregna?

Missing pills. If you only missed one pill, you should be ok. Missing just one pill should not decrease the effective of the pill during that cycle. That being said, there is no 100% effective birth control method. The birth control pill is about 98% effective when used correctly. Read more...
