Mid-cycle spotting. Taking Yaz. Have protected sex

Hi, I have been on birth control YAz for about 3 years now I have never had a problem. I do seem to notice that when I did get my period it was for only two days and that was normal, however this last month it seems like I had my period in the middle of my pack! Like 2 weeks early but it was very short and I thought maybe it was just spotting. Anyways, now I am on my 4th day of placebo pills and haven t gotten my actual planned period and have no pre period symptoms. Im really confused on whats happening, I have had sex but never unprotected without a condom.

Hello,from the history you have given, yaz is combined contraceptive pill, that is it contains both oestrogen and progesterone...Breakthrough bleeding is a side effect of the combined pills...If you are regular with your pills and haven't missed a single pill, then the chances of pregnancy are very less. can waite for another 4 to 5 days for your withdrawal bleeding.....hope i was helpful to you. ....
