So, I've been on my BC (Yaz) for alittle over 5 months and it's always been great for me. Usually my period comes right after the last white placebo pill, but for this month my period is due today and it hasn't come yet. I've been noticing when I push some toilet paper up inside of me to check for the pass three days I have had some bleeding, but nothing that requires a pad or tampon use.

My last period for November started on the third placebo pill and I noticed my period when 4 extra days longer than normal and it required a pad and all it was, was the brownish blood. Could this have caused a problem with the pills I took this month?

Also, I have been fooling around with my boyfriend. We don't have sex we're both against it for the moment, but we do have our genitals up against each other. We've done this before and my period has always come, since i'm very reliable with taking my BC. I read the risk and being on BC, the risk of becoming pregnant seems slim to none, but maybe I'm just worrying too much...

Pregnancy should not be a worry for you.

A lot of women who take BC are under the impression that their monthly bleeds will always be exactly the same, but there can be some variation even while taking hormonal BC. Your November period has nothing to do with what you're experiencing this month; it sounds rather normal.

Some variation is pretty average. I don't think you should trouble yourself too much [Smile]
