Re: Is my withdrawal bleed colour normal?

Thank you, I am schedule to get mine next week. Which is the same week as when I will get my withdrawal bleed. Do you know if the vaccine affects withdrawal bleeds or periods?

Re: Is my withdrawal bleed colour normal?

Thanks Sam!

One last question I have, is it safe for me to get the covid 19 vaccination if I am on Yasmin pills?

Re: Is my withdrawal bleed colour normal?

Thank you! I am not sure why I am still having a slight brown discharge now although I am already in day 2 of my new pack of pills? I haven’t experienced this so far and I have been taking my pills for 2 years now and this is the first time I am still having discharge on my pills. I assume that is n...

Is my withdrawal bleed colour normal?

Hi there, I am on Yasmin for almost 2 years now. I had my bleed last weekend which lasted for about 3 to 4 days. It started on Saturday afternoon and ended on Tuesday with just some brown discharge. It started off with some spotting on Saturday and it gradually got heavier on Sunday and lesser on Mo...

Re: How effective are condoms?

Hi Emily,

The bleeding has stopped now, it only lasted for a few mins after sex and we realised it when we were cleaning up. I didn’t have my withdrawal bleed recently/yet as that is supposed to happen tomorrow. How can I prevent these abrasions from happening?

Re: How effective are condoms?

Just wanted to add to the above that I have tried to pee and then wipe to see if there is still blood but now it has disappeared, not a tint can be seen. Also not feeling any pain there. So perhaps it seems like a spotting

Re: How effective are condoms?

Hi there, I had sex twice with my partner today and both times there were dark brown blood/discharged when we are done. He wiped the condom with tissue and confirmed it was on the outside, coming from me. The condoms didn’t break both times. The stain or discharge is dark brown tint, more like old b...

Re: How effective are condoms?

Thanks!

And with withdrawal bleeds, is it normal or possible for it to be late even though I’m not pregnant? Could it be late due to stress or anxiety? So far I haven been late and it’s always on time so I’m just wondering

Re: How effective are condoms?

Thanks! Since I am taking Yasmin, it comes in a 21-pill package, can I confirm that all pills contain the same amount of hormones because it is monophasic? So it should not matter which pill from the pack I start taking first, whether it’s from the right to left, or left to right, or if I start with...

Re: How effective are condoms?

Thank you! I also assume that having sex (and not getting pregnant) doesn’t affect the withdrawal bleed cycle right? For the 1.5 years I have been taking my combined contraceptive pills, I always have my withdrawal bleed on the 4th day after my last pill. Does having sex affect the day of my withdra...

Re: How effective are condoms?

Ok thank you! Also another question. I am currently on my combined contraceptive pills and my last pill will be on Tuesday. I take 21 pills and no pills for 7 days. And we always use condoms for sex. I am planning to meet my partner on Friday and most likely will have sex. My withdrawal bleed always...

How effective are condoms?

I see that condoms with perfect use is 98% effective. Assuming condom was on from the start, and after sex, after withdrawal from the vagina, there is no leakage, everything is contained in the condom itself and no slippage, does that mean that it is still 98% effective? Or for this one episode of s...

Re: Any other contraceptive methods?

Thanks Sam!

Does this mean that if I use a triple combination of birth control method: Yasmin pill + condom + withdrawal with condom, all taken as instructed, the chances of pregnancy are unlikely? I guess the more methods you use the lower your chances?

Thank you! I think I should be ok as the doctor didn’t tell me that I should avoid certain herbs/teas. I have another question in mind that I’d like to ask and I hope that’s ok... Why do contraceptives never have 100% efficacy? Is it because it takes into consideration human errors? Like take a cond...

Re: Any other contraceptive methods?

My mom made me take this ginseng drink yesterday and I wonder if it is one of the herbs that interact with Yasmin? I also had sex with my partner after drinking the tea. Do I need to take emergency contraception? I have about 4 more days if I need Ella. Thanks!

Re: Any other contraceptive methods?

I think since I have been using the pills and condom plus withdrawal, it makes me feel less anxious but I don’t deny that I sometimes do let my anxiety get the best of me. My partner helps in a great way by checking the condom each time just to reassure me. I guess when I see him pull out, there is ...

Re: Any other contraceptive methods?

Hahaha nope! I am horrible at economics! I’m just worried that due to the friction of us having sex, the condom might tear. When we have sex, there isn’t any pain or anything so we were both pretty lubricated down there without having to use additional lubricant. He puts on the condom after we make ...

Any other contraceptive methods?

So my partner and I had sex twice today.

I am currently on yasmin, taking it diligently and we used a condom for sex plus the withdrawal method as we don’t want to get pregnant.

By using all 3 methods, how safe/effective is it? I am just wondering if there is an additional method we can use?

And I know that protection from pregnancy happens immediately (within 7 days) when i started the first pill on the first day of my period. I complete the 21 pills and get a withdrawal blee...

Re: Timing to take Yasmin pills

Thank you! Is it recommended though to take the pill at the exact same time each day? Like exactly at 1030am for perfect use? If I take it within the 3 hour window you mentioned, is that still perfect use? If I was late on taking the pill on one day last month/on my previous pack, I took it at 8.30p...

Hi there, I am currently on my Yasmin pills and I try to take them at the same time every day as instructed. But I do know that it is ok at times to take it a bit late (within 12 hours of the usual time), am I right? But I wonder if it is ok and is the pill still as effective if I take it earlier th...

Took my Yasmin pill late

Hi there,

I have been on Yasmin for about 1.5 years now. All is going good for me. But today I was late to take my pill, I usually have it at 1030am in the morning and I took it at 830pm at night when I remembered. Is this considered a late pill? Do I need any back up methods like a condom?

Re: Vaginal bleeding - is medical attention needed?

Thanks Heather! We’ll take note in future.

Also, today I forgot to take my Yasmin pill until now, which is 7pm. I usually take it at 10am, so I am about 9 hours late. Is that still ok? Is there any issue of say someone accidentally forgot and took 2 tablets in a day instead of 1?
