Hi there,

I'm 23 yo, and I've been on Yaz since September of 2006. It took me many months of continuous bleeding to adjust along with a few yeast infections... but for the past maybe four months, I feel like I'm finally regular with this bcp and as long as I take my pill at the exact same time every night I have had little break through problems.

This month however, I felt I was good about taking my pill at 10:30 on the dot except a couple of nights when I took it an hour late. When I reached the second week of my pack, I got a yeast infection and started spotting with regular period-like cramps. The flow continued to increase to about moderate volume and I treated the yeast infection successfully.

I've been now bleeding for two weeks and it has been gradually letting up so it's been only very light through the time I would normally have a period. I've just started a new pack and would have expected to have some sort of normal flow by now.

In terms of sexual activity, my bf and i have been apart all summer, but did have sex the weekend before I started bleeding. He still uses a condom though and pulls out...because we really really don't want to be pregnant and are therefore extra careful. It seems unlikely that I would be pregnant and I feel normal otherwise.

Is this just problems again with my bcp? Do you have any ideas what could be going on?

Thanks so much in advance!
