I'm taking yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) for b.C. Is it safe to have sex during the 7 day (right before my period) off the pill before starting with the new pack?

Yes, if ... If you are taking the pills correctly: meaning you are taking a 28 day pack and not missing any pills. In that situation you are using the pills appropriately and you should not be able to get pregnant since you should not be making an egg (ovulating). Be aware that missing the active pills or taking antibiotics along with the bc pills can decrease their effectiveness, which is typically about 98%. Read more...

I took3pills late in week 3 of Ocella (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol). Had my period week, then started my pills Sunday. Monday I had unprotected sex, &took plan b tues & my BC. Preg?

Unlikely. It's unlikely that you could be pregnant with those precautions. Take a pregancy test in 2 and 4 weeks to be sure. Resume your OCP as planned. In the future, if you forget your OCP, use a secondary method such as a condom for a few weeks. That is safer and easier on your body than using Plan B as a back up. Read more...

Skipped Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) placebo pills a week ago but want to induce my period. Is it safe to take the placebo pills this week or should I wait for the next cycle?

WAIT! If I understand you correctly, taking the second round of placebo right after the first, you could easily ovulate with this cycle. Generally, the worst time to miss pills is during the first week of active pills. The Pill needs to be taken as prescribed in order to be maximally effective at preventing pregnancy. If I misunderstood, please resubmit your ? with clarification. Read more...
