Hi,
The symptoms you are experiencing seem to be the side effects of the pill itself and will usually subside during the course. The chances of pregnancy due to pill failure are minimal as you have taken the medicine continuously; a single day delay at the start should not alter the cycle. Yet, you should rule out pregnancy if you do not get a period as expected by a urine pregnancy test. You may see your health care provider for further benefit. Take care.

Hi, im 22 years old. A year ago, i was diagnosed with PCOS and had a terrible irregular period, was given 3 boxes of Yasmin Pills. After taken that pill for about 3 months my period came regularly, and i got pregnant on the 7th month and had an abortion. After the abortion my period is as usual, its regular just that its about 30 days cycle. So this month, my period came 3 days earlier and it lasted for 8 long days. The first 6 days was quite heavy, had to change about 3 times a day. My period just ended 4 days ago, and 2 days after till today im having a tenderness of breast and a watery discharge? May i know why? Or what it could be? Am i pregnant again?

Hi there, I have been on yasmin (pill) since 2012 having never taken the pill before. I was diagnosed with having an ovarian cyst at the time having complained of very painful periods and bleeding in between periods my whole life. Yasmin has been excellent but for the past two months I have experienced bleeding a week before my period. I had another ultra sound and my cyst has grown bigger (before was 5cm ). I feel bloated all the time (even before pill) and find it difficult to pee. I have never been sexualy active so didnt want a transvaginal ultrasound........so my doctor instead told to go on cilest which I am reluctant to use since have read negative reviews. From my brief history do you think yasmin is causing the bleeding? should I take new pill? Any advice on what other steps I can take instead? THANKS

I'm supposed to take Yasmin contraceptive pill on my first day of menstruation but my question is, when should I start taking it now that I've used Nordette as emergency contraceptive pill? I know that I will be experiencing withdrawal bleeding from the Nordette pills. Should I take my Yasmin on the first day of withdrawal bleeding from Nordette? Please advise.
