sore breasts and the pill

I have been on the pill for about 3 months now (yasmin). I was off it for an entire year prior to that. I am not very good at remembering to take and infact I was into my second row this month and missed 2 pills...needless to say, my period started this morning. Is that normal? Also, my breasts have been extremely sore the last few weeks. Can the pill cause this kind of discomfort as well?

Re: sore breasts and the pill

It is very normal to start an early period if your missing pills. And since you are new to the pill its also very normal to get sore breasts on the pill. Ive been on it for 3 years and still get sore breasts before my period starts.

Re: sore breasts and the pill

It is normal, but its really a bad idea to keep missing pills. Your body is trying to get used to the hormones you are giving it (to prevent pregnancy, I assume) by missing pills, you are making your hormone levels really screwy. Try harder to remind yourself to take that pill, or get off of it...it wont protect you if you dont take it regularly...

Re: sore breasts and the pill

I threw awasy the pack after i got my period and was going to start another pack on Sunday...how long should I use other protection for before I am in the safe zone again? What are the chances that I will ovulate due to missing those pills?

Thank you for all your help!
