Hey ya, so I need to start taking the oral contraceptive Yasmin. I had taken it before and was quite happy with it. However, my period is already few days left and it may come now or in a month (I have irregular periods). Can I start taking Yasmin now and use other contraception for the first 7 days or do I HAVE to wait until my first day of period? Thanks
The prescribing information states that you can take it:
1. The first day of your menstrual period (Day 1 Start)
2. The first Sunday after the onset of your menstrual period.
Yes, you would need protection the first 7 days.
Ideally, you would check with the prescribing doctor.
Hope it helps.
hey, yeah i know it does. But would it be fine if I start it at other time, as long as i use protection first 7 days.
Why not take it as directed? Follow the prescribing information or see your doctor.
Sorry, I won't just give you the answer you appear to be looking for.
