Couldn't find what you looking for?


I've been taking yaz since I had my mireana taken out about 2.5 years ago, my husband and I had intercourse and I was on the last day of my period so I had not yet started my new pack of birth control and our condom broke.. Should I get plan b? Or should I be okay?


Hello Mimi,

you should be generally safe even without the plan B because both Mirena and Yaz are hormonal birth controls that, in a way, work in advance. At the point you had the intercourse you were protected by the birth control pills during the last month. If you took them regularly and on time, there was enough synthetic hormones present to stop the ovulation, so even when you were supposed to ovulate, nothing actually happened and no fertile egg was released,

Wish you all the best,
