I want to switch from Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) birth control to yazmin. How and when do I change? Is it immediately after I complete the pack of Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) or should I wait?
Changing pills. It is recommended to start your new pill at the same time you would have started your next package of old pills. So not change in the middle of your cycle.
See below. They are the same medication.
Yes usually. Most people have regular periods during the week of placebo pills when taking birth control pills. But on the first 1-3 packs, breakthrough bleeding btb (irregular bleeding and/or spotting) can occur even if you take perfectly. If you miss pills, btb is more likely. A few people will not have any bleeding during placebo, or just spotting. If you're worried abt preg or have missed pills take a pg test.
I missed 4 days on Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) birth control started a new pack then my period came I stopped the pack to see if it would stop but it didn't why haven't it?
Bleeding on OCP. If you missed a couple of days of the birth control pills, especially with the lower dose pills, it will cause the irregular bleeding. The bleeding is due to the changes in birth control pills and the changes your body undergoes with the shifts in hormone levels. If you are not pregnant, it should stop after 1 or 2 cycles.
I'm on my 2nd week of 3rd pack Yasmin and started spotting and bleeding with mild cramps. Been having BTB since started Yasmin. Normal? Before on Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol).
Breakthrough. Bleeding is very common on birth control pills. It usually stops if is going to after the thrived pack of pills. Your choices are to finish this pack and see if it happens again or to see your doctor about changing to a different pull.
Normal. Breakthrough bleeding (BTB) is normal on birth control, especially very low dose (usually referring to the estrogen dose) versions. Two things about birth control: 1. There are hundreds of different types. If one doesn't work, find another one. 2. For young women, without a history of blood clots, birth control is usually a net gain. Preventing pregnancy, ovarian, and uterine cancer.
Side effect of BCP. BTB is infortunate side effect. If tolerable you may continue, otherwise change the BCP.
Have chronic eczema, but this summer I have a new reaction to sun/sunscreen. Could it be because I recently switched to Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) birth control?
No. You are probably allergic to sunscreen. Use the ones for sensitive skin. It has nothing to do with the Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) birth control pills.
Spotted immediately after unprotected sex. Have had brown spotting for two days. Period was supposed to end 2 days ago. Taking Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) birth control. Help?
Breakthrough bleed. Breakthrough bleeding (bleeding at the wrong time) is very common on birth control. It happens in about 1/3 of users. Its no big deal and usually self corrects over time. 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.
Post coital bleed. If you had some remaining menstrual tissue that hadn't been expelled during your period, sex may cause it to come out. Female orgasm and sex in general causes some uterine cramping (contractions). The other concern would be a cervical infection and bleeding from the penis hitting the cervix with subsequent bleeding.
My doctor suggested I change my yasmine birth control to Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) when im fimished my 7 day break n I start Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) am I still protected?
Yes, there. Should be no interruption in contraceptive efficacy when changing.
