I have been on Yasmin since March 2006. For this past month, I used Yaz because the doctor didnt have any Yasmin. The only difference with these two is that Yaz has 4 placebos and Yasmin has 7 placebos. With Yasmin, I would usualy get my period after the 4th placebo and now with Yaz, I already took the last placebo last night and no period! I am going to start my new pack of Yasmin today and am concerned about not getting my period. Should I take a pregnancy test? I have took my pills on time, everyday so I dont see why I should be pregnant. Help!!!

It's likely that you're not seeing your period because of the slight change in prescriptions, and because of the change in placebo timing.

It would be incredibly unlikely for you to be pregnant since you have taken your pills correctly.

I'd suggest just going along with your next pack of Yasmin. Don't be surprised if you get some mid-cycle bleeding, just because of the timing change. If you don't get your withdrawl bleed next month, after you're back on Yasmin, then you could take a pregnancy test and give your doctor a call.
