I have been on a contraceptive pill called Yasmin since the last two months. In the last pack, I missed the pill twice, but each time, I took two pills the next day. I take the pills roughly around the same time, approximately around one to two hours each day. I am currently on my 7-day break (today is the fifth day of break). If I plan to get sexually active on Thursday (the day I am due to start my third pack), would I need to take any additional precaution? Can I be intimate even if it is the first day of my third pack? Also, can I start my third pack a day in advance, that is, on Wednesday, as I am still on my period, so it will stop the period?
Thank you so much. I have a few questions, please. Even though it is the fifth day of periods, the flow is still heavy. Can I take anything to stop the period immediately? Should I take Yasmin as per schedule, that is on Thursday instead of taking it a day earlier? I thought if I took it on Wednesday, it might also make intimacy safer. Would that be true? Also, is it needed to take an I-pill later to be absolutely sure or can it be skipped entirely?
