I have been taking Yasmin for about a month now, and I've started on the white pills, and this is the week you are supposed to be on your period. I have taken four of these pills but i still haven't started my period. Am I pregnant?

If you have taken your pills faithfully as directed the chance of pregnancy is only about 1%. However, the withdrawal bleeding which usually occurs can vary with the individual, especially in the first few months on the pill. Continue to take the pills on schedule even in the absence of a "period" but if you have other symptoms of pregnancy you could take a pregnancy test to be sure. Usually five weeks from your last period these are quite accurate.
