I was on yasmin, but had to switch to Ocella because my insurance would no longer pay fo it. Now they are saying that Ocella is no longer generic so I had to switch again, to Cryselle-28. I finished up the pack of Ocella the immediatly started taking the Cryselle-28. Do I need to use condoms since I switch to another kind of birth control?
As long as you didn't stop taking the active pills unless it was time for your cycle, you should be fine. It is when you stop taking the actives and skip a new pack after your cycle that would put you in danger of getting pregnant. If you are nervous about getting pregnant because you had to switch your pills twice, it won't hurt to use a condom for a month, but, I don't think you have to.
