  • Sometimes women stop getting thier periods all together or get really light ones. In my experience it usually takes a while for that to happen. If this is your first pack of pills I'd take a pregnancy test.  Hope it all works out.

  • What pill? When I was on Yaz it only had 5 "white" pills. I started when I took the last one and bleed for 3 days. Other pills I would start at pill 4 or 5 (of 7). Just keep taking them and see hwat happens. Talk to your doc if you have any concerns.
