I've been taking Yaz since 2 years ago, it contains 3 mg of drospirenone and 0.03 mg of ethinyloestradiol. I just got Dronis 20 instead but contains 3 mg of drospirenone and 0.02 mg of ethinyloestradiol. This difference worries me. I can't get Yaz anymore and I got the dronis pills for the next 6 months... What do you recommend me? Thank you.
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The hormonal content and dose matters if you are taking the pills for any specific medical treatment apart from birth control. If you are using the pills for purpose of birth control alone, then the minor difference in hormonal dosage will not cause any problems. You will continue to have protection against pregnancy. Use additional contraceptive measures during the switch over of the pills.
If you were taking the pills for any other purpose, then you should consider taking opinion of your treating doctor/gynecologist about the switch over of pills before you start taking the new ones.
