Hi doctor,

I removed IUD recently as I was not sexually active. I had unprotected sex after a week, and I took Yasmin. I read that increased intake of Yasmin can work as an emergency pill. I took five tablets in the afternoon, another five tablets after eight hours and again five tablets after six hours. I got my last period before a month, and it was delayed for two days when I had unprotected sex. Can I have a chance to become pregnant even after taking Yasmin?



Welcome to

Please tell the exact time of IUD removal, the precise time of the last period, current period and the last exposure.

Thank you doctor,

I have removed IUD before a month. I got my last periods after three days of removing IUD. I should get my current period soon. Last month was my recent exposure.



Welcome back to

As you had your last exposure in a safe period and took Yasmin (Drospirenone), it is unlikely to have implantation. You can have withdrawal bleeding soon. If you do not get periods, you do a urine pregnancy test and consult a gynecologist soon.

Thank you doctor,

I had taken 15 pills over 14 hours. Can it delay my periods? When can I expect it?



Welcome back to

Yes, Yasmin can disrupt the normal cycle. You can have withdrawal bleeding soon, and you can have periods also. It can vary.
