Hello and thanks for the query.

In order to best understand your concern can you be more specific with the question you're asking so I can help you? The emergency contraception kit will generally initiate a period as you have experienced. It may throw off the ovulatory cycle as well. Also if you have been taking Yaz all along you should be fine without worry of pregnancy.

I thank you again for the query and await additional clarification from you regarding specifics of your concerns.

Regards,

Dr. Galamaga

Hello and thanks for the followup.

The likelihood that you would become pregnant in this case after taking birth control daily and using backup birth control is much less that 1 percent. In other words very very unlikely. I recommend you repeat the pregnancy test in 48 hours and maintain safe sex practices until your period normally resumes.

I thank you again for submitting your query. I hope you will find my answer to be both helpful and informative. Should you have any additional followups I am available to address them.

Sincerely,

Dr. Galamaga
