Hi doctor,

I had unprotected sex before two days. The next day, I took one Yaz pill. Do I need to take more pills? Will it be effective?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have gone through your history, and I can understand your concern. There is a chance of pregnancy in your case as you have taken only one dose of Yasmin pill (Drospirenone with Ethinylestradiol). Delayed menses can occur due to hormonal imbalance caused by sex. Do a home urine test if you miss your period by seven days.
