Hey guys! I was wondering if you could please shed some light on my current situation. So this month I restarted Yaz and in my third week of taking the pills (ultra perfectly may I add - first day start and I take them nearly to the minute) the condom broke because I was too dry while having sex but he withdrew at once and changed the condom.

This month I've been really self assured and confident that I've got things under control, but I start my placebos tomorrow and that always brings a sense of insecurity with it.
I don't really want to waste money on a pregnancy test but I don't feel like spending the next couple of days worrying for my withdrawal bleed. My body is going crazy from the pill side effects - my breasts have ballooned and I've spotted throughout the entire month - luckily that just stopped now, but annoyingly enough my anxiety levels have only skyrocketed.

So technically I've got two questions: 1) does my situation count as using withdrawal and the pill perfectly/typically, or seeing that it hadn't been a full cycle should I take the percentages of a pregnancy risk as withdrawal alone? And secondly 2) are there pills that are reputed to have less of an anxietic effect?

Thank you [Smile] Sorry to keep asking questions but you guys are really wonderful and I don't have much support anywhere else.

Since you are almost done with the first pack of pills, you can assume that you are already fairly close to full protection, if not already completely there. So that plus withdrawal means that there is no reason to worry about a pregnancy at this point.

As for the side effects of your pill, that is something to discuss with your doctor. Reactions to the pill vary from person to person based, and a doctor can help you figure out your best options based on your medical history.
