Hey :). First of all, I know that there's no way for me to know if I'm pregnant until I take a test, but it's too early right now and I just wanted other people's thoughts.
I missed a pill on Tuesday night and also on Wednesday night (STUPID. Ugh. I NEVER have done that. Also, we had unprotected sex on Tues. night.) - and these pills were in Week 3 of my Yaz pack. I'm not a Sunday starter, I'm a Day One starter, so the directions on the website say:
"If you miss two (2) active pills (pink) in a row in Week 3 or Week 4 of your pack:
If you are a Day 1 Starter: THROW OUT the rest of the pill pack and start a new pack that same day."
HOWEVER, before I saw this on the website, I went ahead and took both of the pills I missed, and then that night (Thurs.) I took Thursday's pill at my regular time. I called Yaz to ask them what I should do since I was apparently supposed to throw the pack away but took the pills. They advised me to call my doc. My doctor told me to just continue taking the rest of the pack as usual (she didn't tell me to skip my period or not, but I think I'm going to, just to keep the hormones in my system).
The fact that Yaz operates in 3 ways to prevent pregnancy (prevention of ovulation, thickening of cervical mucus, and thickening of uterine lining), combined with the fact that my mom had a hard time getting pregnant so genetically I might have a hard time as well, I THINK I'm probably okay...
...I just wanted some thoughts. I think I need to wait for at least a week to take a pregnancy test, so until then all I can do is try not to obsess/worry, and use a back-up method of birth control.
