HeyCustomer

Looking at the research you are okay to start back on your Yaz if you are feeling up to it. If you have any problems such as abnormal bleeding let your prescribing physician know. As with any medicine be careful and if you have any worries let someone know.

Do I start my Yaz now or should I wait until my next period starts and if so about how long will it take-I worry about when I might ovulate and do not want to start mid cycle and think that I am safe and am not-Thanks for all your help

You are safe to start your birth control now, however your birth control will not be considered effective until you have been on it for 2 months. That being said start your pills and just use other contraceptive methods such as a condom until two months is up.
