I think you’re fine. Even switching generic brands can be tricky (I missed a month when switching BC) so I would wait a few days. If you are still worried after starting a new pack, go ahead and take a test.

I wouldn’t worry about it.  Pills have different types of hormones in them and can have different effects in the body.  Plus stress can change when you get your period.

There is a slight possibility of getting pregnant when you are on BC but it is really really small.  A lot of people have problems because they forget to take their pills or take them too far apart.  I think that usual pills can be taken within a few hours and still be effective.

Keep in mind that Yasmin isnt the generic equivalent to Yaz.  Yaz is a lower estrogen/prgesterone dosage of Yasmin, which is why there are less placebo pills.  You’re probably fine, that same thing happened when I switched frm Yasmin to Yaz

your body can do funny things when you switch BC – especially because it’s the first month, I wouldn’t worry too much

Good luck with the switch! I was on LoEstrin and went to Yaz and Yaz was definitely worse for me in terms of libido. Not as good as being off the pill, but I totally hear you on the zero wetness! No amount of lube could cure me of the dreaded side effects of Yaz.

I didn’t realize that the pill could cause a reduction in wetness. Hmm better talk to my doctor. I’m on Yasmin.
