So during March I experienced heavy breakthrough bleeding for about a week. I then had cramping and started bleeding on April 3rd, the scheduled day for my withdrawal. The bleeding got heavier over the day, saturday was heavy bleeding and then when i started the active pill on sunday the heavy bleeding stopped.

I'm not sure if the withdrawal was light because of the heavy bleeding in march or if the pill is finally kicking in with the "lighter periods"

I'm sure everything is fine but in the back of my mind the word "pregnancy" always comes back.
I take my pills everyday around 6:30-6:45 am, so missing pills is nothing i've worried about.


FYI:
YAZ for a 14 months(perfect user)
Last cycle: April 03,2009
Next Cycle: May 01,2009
Methods used: Combined BCP + Withdrawl
Both tested for STI's

Pregnancy is incredibly unlikely if you've been taking your pills correctly. You can always take a pregnancy test to be 100% sure, but there's really been no risk here.
