white pills in BC important?

I'm on YAZ birth control right now, but in my last pack, two of my white pills got ruined. i took the first two and then didn't take two for two days, so i just started my new pack when i would usually start it. is it bad to miss the white pills? i thought they were just placebo pills or something. also, when i have sex with my boyfriend he pulls out, so am i in danger of being pregnant?

Are the white pills during the last week?

If so, you're fine. Those are just pills to keep up the routine of taking them.

I'm on yaz...white pills are just placebos to help you remember when to take the next pack so you're completely fine so long as you started your next pack extactly on time(which you said you did) so no worries!

as for the pull out "method"....its not really a method in my opinion, pregnancy can most definitely still occur(if no other form of b.c. is used)..but given the fact that you're on b.c. i wouldn't worry

Pulling Out Method
Planned parenthood said the pull out method is completely fine unless your guy doesn't know when he is going to ejaculate, then he could accidentally do so before pulling out. So if your significant other knows himself and when he is going to ejaculate soon, its perfectly fine! BTW, there is absolutely no sperm in pre-cum UNLESS he previously ejaculated and never urinated to clean his urethra from the previous ejaculation. Sperm could be left over inside his urethra, but urinating washes it all away.
