I recently started Yasmin on a FRIDAY night. I used to take tri-cyclen lo and was a sunday starter (got my period on a tuesday so it worked out that it was gone by the weekend) but then took a break from BC. But if there are any FRIDAY starters out there on Yasmin 28, when do you start your period (what day?). The reason I ask is because I do NOT want it on the weekend. I am wondering if I should shift it back to sunday? If I started on a Friday night will I miss the weekend or not?
Welcome to ehealthforum,
You should get your periods while being on the placebo pills. If you want to shift your start day, you can do it under supervision of your gynecologist. Use additional protection if you are changing the pill cycle day. Be regular with your birth control use. Use additional protection if having intercourse during the switchover of birth control.
