I take ocella birth controll ( generic for Yasmine) to skip periods. I have been doing this for about 2 years. I ran into a problem with my insurance and there will be a delay in my medicine which will mean I will miss 3 pills. Will I get a period this go around? I think its well enough in my system that I won't but I could be wrong I was just curious if anyone else knows.
So you have been taking Ocella and I'm assuming you've been missing the inactive tablets and going on to the active tablets from the next pack to avoid having a period, for 2 years.
That is not recommended at all ... you can do that for 3 cycles but you should take the inactive tablets after the 3rd month to bring on a period.
Although you have been taking it that way for 2 year ... if you do miss 3 days worth of pills it is highly likely that you will have a period.
