Re: Took my new pill at a later timing

Hi Jacob,

Thank you! Does this mean I can take my pill at 10am / in the morning instead of 5.30pm?

Many thanks!

Re: Yasmin pills

Thank you. I have stopped the pill for about 3 months and have gotten back on the pill recently. First pill was on 8 July and today is the 4th pill free day. I have been spotting quite a bit since the first pill and I understand it’s a side effect of the pill. The spotting used to go away after the ...

Yasmin pills

Hello! I managed to get my Yasmin pills refilled and have started taking them. My pills are in a 21-pill pack and contains ethinyl estradiol (0.03mg) and drospirenone(3mg) I assume that each pill contains the same amount and it doesn’t matter which pill from the pack I start taking first? Reason why...

Re: How to change timing of Yasmin pills?

Thank you Mo!

And I assume having some spotting (dark brown) after stopping the pills for a while and taking them again is completely normal?

Re: How to change timing of Yasmin pills?

Hello!

Just to make it easier, I wonder if I can just take the pills at 3pm for the rest of the pack for the full 21 days. And for the next pack after 7 days rest, I take the pill at 10am. Does that make sense?

How to change timing of Yasmin pills?

Hello. I have managed to refill my Yasmin pills and I have just gotten my period (first day) today. I took the first pill today at 3pm as my period came in the afternoon. However my preference is to take the pills in the morning when I get up. How do I go about changing the timing of the pills becau...

Thank you Heather. I took my last Yasmin pill on April 24, and my withdrawal bleed started from April 28 to 30. It’s now day 33 of my cycle and my “natural period” isn’t back yet. My cycle before the pills have always been irregular, so it ranges from 39 days to 54 days the longest. Is it possible t...

Re: Yasmin and cancer risks

Hi Amanda, I think the hormones in the pills don’t stay in the body forever, am I right? I think Heather mentioned in one of the articles that it stays in the body for only 2 to 3 days? And they get flushed out? That’s why we need to take the pills everyday to prevent pregnancy, which makes a lot of...

Re: Yasmin and cancer risks

Hello, I just wanted to follow up as I haven’t been able to refill my pills because of the lockdown. Also I have been doing quite a lot of reading online regarding the pills as I have stopped taking them in April. I know it’s been said that the birth control pill has been studied widely and is safe ...

Re: Contraceptive pills - medical history

I watch tv mostly to help me copy with the anxiety. But as everyone knows, there isn’t much anyone can do with the situation and the fact that I can’t get access to medication until June. It annoys me because I am someone who loves to stay on schedule and because so far the pill has been working so ...

Re: Contraceptive pills - medical history

Perhaps my mantra could be like “everything will be fine, I will be fine” So we just had an announcement a couple of days ago that our lockdown will be extended for the entire month of May, and the tentative end date would be on 1 June. This means that I won’t be able to get my packs refilled until ...

Re: Contraceptive pills - medical history

I am so sorry, I think I have another question. I am currently taking Yasmin, and when I stop for a while until I get my pack refilled, will my body still react the same way as it is now? I have no problems at all with yasmin, the first month I had a bit of spotting, but that cleared up pretty quick...

Re: Contraceptive pills - medical history

So, they have made an announcement to tighten measure for the lock down. We are not allowed to leave our homes anymore unless it is for absolute emergencies. I have asked the clinics and they recommend for me to not come down to get the pills and wait till lockdown is over. In that case, it means th...

Re: Contraceptive pills - medical history

In response to Jacob’s question, I agree that many of us live in communities where birth control isn't talked about, and is treated negatively. it is Definitely so where I live and in my family. i know it is supposedly safe to take it long term, and I agree that it’s the psychological fear that make...

Re: Contraceptive pills - medical history

Hi Sam, The clinic that I usually go to is now closed I think. We can’t get the pills at pharmacies here. Is there a reason why I should take the pill as soon as I get them and not wait until my natural period comes? If I am not going to participate in anything that would cause pregnancy, is it ok f...

Re: Contraceptive pills - medical history

I am worried that being on birth control for long time is harmful for my body and bad for health. I have been taking it for about 6 to 7 months now. And I don’t know how safe it is to take it long term. I am not planning to have penetrative sex or sex that could eventually get me pregnant. That’s wh...

Re: Contraceptive pills - medical history

Okay I ended up taking the pill for my next pack.

Just curious, does anyone take the birth control pill just to regulate their period? So that they will get it every 28 days or so? Do people with PCOS get prescribed with contraceptive pills?
