On contraceptive pill Yasmin. Missed pills. Should I get tests done?

Hi, I have been on the contraceptive pill Yasmin for quite a while now over 2 years. I recently missed two or three pills and since I have my period has not stopped despite the fact that I ve started taking the active pills again. It s been about 12 days Should I just wait it out and keep taking it or should I have some tests etc?

If you have missed 3 or more of the active tablets, you should discontinue the pill until you menstuate then restart the pack when you do. You must use alternative contraception , i.e. condoms , for at least 14 days into the active tablets before you rely only on the pill again. No tests are required for now..

Hi there ~

It is better to keep taking the pills again, however consult your gynecologist if the period has not stopped in another couple of days.

Take care and have a lovely day !
