Question: Yaz & withdrawal bleed - pregnacy??

 LadyBug91225 - Wed Jan 21, 2009 5:17 pm

I had unprotected sex twice this month. I am on YAZ & I have taken all of my pills,(no late or missing pills) this is the 4th month of being on Yaz. I started my withdrawal bleed a little earlier than normal, by 1 day - which I think my body adjusting to the new pill (previously I was on Tri-Sprintec with the 7 day placebo). My withdrawal bleed lasted for 4 days (a day longer than normal) but my flow was normal.

With having the withdrawal bleed, is there a possiblity of pregnancy? I have no symptoms and have taken numerous tests, but I've read so much online that I'm flipping out!

User avatar Hello,
With proper use, this is an excellent birth control method and I would not suspect pregnancy. Even though it does happen at times, the change in your periods would not be suspicious for pregnancy. You are probably worrying needlessly. Be careful about the sources you use online.

Best wishes.
