I've been on yaz for about a year now. And every month I've gotten my period. This month I haven't gotten it and me and my boyfriend just had unprotected sex a week before I should of started my period. Should I be worried?

What do you consider unprotected sex? Have you been taking your pill on time? If you have sex without a condom, as long as you are taking your pill on time every day then you are still 99% protected. It is common to skip your period when on birth control, and sometimes it just happens. However, if you are worried you can take a pregnancy test to ease your mind and figure things out. There is still always that, although rare, 1% chance that it failed. I would wait two weeks and take a test. Good luck!

I consider unprotected sex not using a condom. I have been taking my pill around the same time. My only worry is that skipping my period because it's never happened to me before. I do plan on taking a pregnancy test. Thank you very much for your help!

Since you are taking your pill around the same time, you are about 99% protected. It is always scary when skipping a period because we are taught that means pregnancy. Skipping a period on the pill isn't too uncommon, though. I would try not to worry too much and definitely take a pregnancy test just to ease your mind. Good luck Smile
