    Unhappy HELP! Breakthrough bleeding - do i stop pills now or double up?

    I've been on YAZ for three months now and decided to skip my period, seven days into the new pack and I've started bleeding! It's not super heavy and kinda brown/red.. but my boyfriend is coming into town and its putting a dampener on my mood for sure! How do i stop it?! Stop taking the pills and let my body bleed or take two pills a day until it stops???
    Desperate for advice!

    Brown blood is old blood that wasn't expelled in a previous period....so the extra hormones are causing your body to expel that. I doubt that doubling up will help since the bleeding has already begun. I think you just have to wait it out. Your best bet is to check with your pharmacist.
