do i need to change my pill
Hi Doc,
I have been on Yasmine for 3 years and I have very regular periods. I have not skipped a pill or taken a pill late. This is the week before my period is due and it seems that I have started my period. What could be the reason for that? Do I need to be alarmed or change my pill? Thanks

It may be a breakthrough bleed. I would suggest that you wait and see what happens next month. It may be an isolated incident.

Best wishes
