    Default Anyone on Yaz pill?

    Hi - I've just started Yaz (not Yasmine) which has only four sugar pills. There is a green section with 7 active pills in it, and you start in this section on the first day of your period and then follow the arrows round. The first day of the week in the green section is a Wed, but I started on a Friday. This means that at the end of the pack, an after the four sugar pills, I have two active pills left.

    Do I take these before starting a new pack? I think that's makes sense otherwise I'm throwing away active pills but just wanted to see if anyone knew for sure.

    Their website is useless!

    TIA

    Yes continue with that pack until finished, but then start on the next day on the new pack. For example finish old on Thursday start new on the friday.
    Which means each month you have a few active to take before starting new packet.

    Hope that makes sense
