After I had my miscarriage, my doctor said when my period starts to begin taking the Yasmin 21-day pills, stop it for a week, and resume it again after the week. Sounds great, but my period began about 2 days after I completed the first 21-day pills. So, now should I have started a new package when my period started? or should I wait the 7 week period and start taking them again?
Yasmin...REALLY confused on when to take!?
Your body is doing what it is supposed to. Your period should come during the withdrawal week when you take no pills. After seven days off, you start a new pack even if you are still bleeding or done bleeding. Dont alter the 21 day on and 7 days off no matter what your body is doing. Your pills are working correctly and you are cycling when you should. When the seven days are up, start your new pack. If this gets confusing to you, your Dr may want to put you on a 28 day pack that has 21 days of active tablets and 7 days of inert non active tablets and you take one pill a day every day. With your 21 day Yasmin program, it is the same thing, they just dont give you inert (sugar pills) to take during your seven days off.
