birth control


Question by  ao (54)

Is it normal to have a missed period on Yasmin?

I started taking Yasmin 3 months ago.

Most birth controls regulate your period, and sometimes this can throw your body off. It happens, just if it happens a few months in a row, go to a doctor.

When you first start to take any birth control, like Yasmin, it can take awhile for your body to get adjusted to the hormonal changes. It depends on the person, but often your periods are irregular, or may not even come at all, during the first months of use.


Answer by  Magen (36)

Birth Control alters hormone levels to simulate a response similar to what happens during pregnancy, thus reducing the body's need to have a period. So yes it is normal.

It typically takes about 3 months for a birth control to begin to show side-effects, and missing periods and spotting are very common side-effects for any birth control pill. Yasmin has been known to have other harsh side-effects that you might consider talking to your doctor about switching. Ortho-Tri-Cyclen-Lo has the lowest effective hormone level, therefore the least noticeable side-effects.

It didn't happen to me and I've been using them for about 5 months. The best thing you can do is to call your doctor as soon as possible and you will have a strait and profession answer.
