Ive been on the yasmin pill before when i was with my ex because i wanted to be safe, i got the mood swings n my acne got better etc. but never got pregnant after 9 months of being on it but we used condoms but when we didnt he did the pull out method, so i dont actually know if the yasmin pill works on stopping you from getting pregnant. I broke up with him in june of personal reasons and stopped taking the yasmin pill,but now recently i have got a new boyfriend and started taking the Yasmin pill again its nearly been a month of me taking the pill again, and we've been using condoms anyway as i didn't think it would work straight away. N we both want to have sex without the condoms but the pull out method for us isn't really making it " romantic" if you would say. I just wanted to know can i start letting him "go" inside me yet or should i wait longer???
You can let him "go" now.
Yasmin will protect you from pregnancy once you have taken 7 active tablets around the same time each day. So from what you have said as long as you continue to take your pills correctly you will be protected from pregnancy even if you don't use condoms. If you do not use condoms you won't be protected from sexually transmitted infections.
Once you are established on birth control pills, using condoms is for STD protection, not as part of contraception. If you are sure your partner is clear from infection and not having sex with others then it is your choice to use condoms or not, you are 98-99.9% protected if you take your pill correctly and consistently. If you miss a pill or get put on antibiotics, you do need to use condoms as back up again but otherwise you are protected by the Pill.
