Bleeding between periods on loestrin 24

Common Questions and Answers about Bleeding between periods on loestrin 24


Avatar f tn Hello, I've been on birth control since I was 15 (now 23) for ovarian cysts. About a year ago I switched pills from Loestrin 24 fe to Lo Loestrin 24 fe. Within the year I think I've had 2 periods (only lasting a day or so) and a few days of very light spotting. I do know this pill is the lowest dose of hormones you can have with a birth control pill. Is this normal?
192270 tn?1216261777 Two missed periods and negative blood test. All while on birth control (Loestrin 24 started bills on 10/23 first sign of bleeding). Can I be pregnant? Thyroid and anemia test are negative.
Avatar n tn Any vaginal bleeding between periods, spotting, or missed/irregular periods can happen especially during the first few months of use. It is best to consult your gynecologist and discuss your concerns with her. That will be helpful. Do keep us posted. Take care and regards!
Avatar f tn I switched from Loestrin to Ortho because I started not having periods AT ALL on the Loestrin and I had CRAZY PREGNANCY SYMPTOMS. I got a blood test but it was negative. Now I am on Ortho and am a little nervous because I've heard and read that some people have gotten pregnant on this pill. Any advice????
Avatar f tn I've not had any problems with Yaz or Loestrin 24. I'm on Loestrin right now because Yaz made me pretty low emotionally. However, I think because they are so low dose pills, they shouldn't cause such a problem. I've heard bad thinkgs about Seasonal/ique, though. I dunno. I take Loestrin continiously and haven't had an issue, I don't see why you would bother with a pill specifically marketed as "less periods" when you can have them with any.
Avatar f tn Did u have irregular bleeding before starting birth control? Any bleeding in between periods?
Avatar f tn I have been on lo loestrin fe for the past 4 months. This past month I had breakthrough bleeding. I've been told that breakthrough bleeding means that I am not protected anymore, but does that mean that my pills were not working for the entire month prior to breakthrough or just the time after that? Could I have gotten pregnant before breakthrough even if I had taken pills regularly? Thanks so much!
Avatar m tn I've been on Loestrin 24 fe for about a year now. I take it regularly and consistently, but vomited a few hours after taking one pill of this month's pack. I'm on the second day of the placebo pills now, and I did not have a period last month at all. My boyfriend and I have been having sex, without using condoms, for 5 months and everything has been fine, but I'd like some reassurance. Could missing that one pill in the first week of pills cause me to be pregnant?
Avatar n tn ive been on loestrin 24 fe for about 2 weeks now i started it on a sunday which happen to be the first day of my period that lasted 7 days to end to start with the breakthough bleeding 2 days later and it has yet to stop any idean how long this is going to last i cant begin to think about bleeding for months stright.
Avatar f tn Hello. I am on my 3rd year of being on Loestrin 24 FE and in the first month or two I had the regular spotting and breakthrough bleeding. However, in the past couple of months I have experienced spotting and breakthrough bleeding all over again and that is not normal for me. What could be going on? I take my pill at the same time daily and there haven't been any changes of lifestyle.
Avatar f tn Ok, my obgyn put me on Loestrin 24 to help alleviate my severe cramps, which has worked. I have been on Loestrin since December of 2007. Even now, my periods are completely sporatic, and unpredictable. I averaged(since I started the pills) 1-2 periods a month, but they were and still are very light. But in October, I had three periods, no crapms, and all three periods consisted of a vinegary smelling dark brown blood. I even tried using a ******, and I wash down there every time I shower.
Avatar n tn Hi! Loestrin is a very low dose pill, and sometimes after you have been on it for awhile, the lining of the uterus gets very thin and bleeding becomes irregular. OR this could be a one time only thing, especially if you missed a pill or took one late. I would tell my patient to wait and see and if it happens regularly, you may need to swtich pills for awhile. Good Luck!
Avatar m tn I recently started taking Loestrin 24. I started experiencing light bleeding during sex which lasts for a day or 2 then stops, but then occurs again the next time. It only happens during/after sex. I've never had this happen before. There was nothing abnormal when I had my check up and was given the prescription. Has anyone ever heard of this happening with this brand?
1674462 tn?1304114750 I was on Loestrin 24 for 5 years. It does help I did not have any problems with it at all. I just received my diagnosis of endmetriosis in August. I actually had to change pills because I started not getting my periods bc I had been on it so long. I did not gain any weight and did not have any bloating with the pill. I loved it. I was put on the pill at 16 due to severe menstrual cramping. I def. recommend that pill.
Avatar f tn I am 17. This is my 3rd month on birth control. I am sexually active with my boyfriend. We both have been tested and we are free of any STDs. I'm on Loestrin 24. My first month I had a few days of breakthrough bleeding but my period was on time. The 2nd month I had no breakthrough bleeding and everything was on time perfectly. Now this month, I've taken all of my pills on time except one, which I was two hours late.
Avatar f tn I have been on Loestrin 24 FE birth control for about 8 months. Since I have been on the pill, I have had monthly 3 day periods that are relatively light. I try and take the pills at the same time every night, but there are some times when I forget and either take the pill a couple of hours later or the next day. This past month my period was only about a day and a half long, if that.
1633912 tn?1300040244 you might call it spotting because its not alot. i am on loestrin 24 fe birth control and i just finished an antibiotic called azithromycin for an ear infection. i got a pelvic ultrasound/sonogram done last week and everything is fine. my doctor wanted me to do some tests since the ultrasound was normal, but she went on vacation and wont be back until march 25. please help! im very scared. is it because of the antibiotic that im bleeding? or is it something else???? what can it be?
Avatar f tn I went to the doctor recently, and everything was just fine the gynecologist said it was just that I needed some hormones to regulate things, so he prescribed Loestrin 24 Fe ( Birth control pill)..
Avatar f tn I started the birth control le loestrin fe at the beginning of August (but I didn't wait until after my period came to begin taking the pills) I haven't had my period in those last four months. I had some weird symptoms like nausea and breast tenderness and discharge from late September to late October but not so much anymore. Is it normal to miss your period for that long after starting birth control or specifically lo loestrin fe?
Avatar f tn I've been on Loestrin 24 for four months now. the first 2 pill packs i had a regular period. The 3rd pill pack I had a little spotting but it wasnt a period at all. I took a pregnancy test and it was negative. Now with the fourth pill pack..I never got my period, not even a spot of blood which is weird and the past few days at least..ive been experiencing stomach cramps, alot of nausea, and breast tenderness. any ideas ?
Avatar f tn m not sure which birth control pill you are taking, but I assume it is Loestrin 24 Fe from your title. Yes, it is a little unusual that you started bleeding so early on after starting your birth control pills and that you have been bleeding for so long. It may be related to the fact that you haven't had a period for 2.5 years. Your uterine lining has been building up for 2.5 years. Remember normally, your uterine lining is shed every month. But you have not had a period for 2.
Avatar n tn I am 40,Never in my life ihad a problem,my periods were always on time,but this is since 4 mnths my periods are irregular,this time my periods have continued for a month,still not stopped,i went to gyn,she put me on provera,it didnt wrkd,no w she put me on yasmine,light birth control pills,its been 3 days,still i am bleeding,she have told me once period stops come for biopsy.i am worried losing lot of blood is not suggest me any cure for this.
Avatar m tn I'm 23 and on birth control (Loestrin 24). Normally my periods are somewhat regular, but really light and short. Last month I didn't have one, but I did have some slight spotting before my period was supposed to come. This month my period also skipped. I have no other symptoms of PCOS except some acne on my chin (but occasional breakouts are not uncommon for me, I have oily skin, plus an expired skin product and eating wheat with my allergy may have caused this).
Avatar f tn I have been on Lo Loestrin Fe for 7 months now, and I have semi-regular, light periods. I may have had unprotected intercourse on the 30th of September, but I bled on my placebo pills when expected, although very lightly. Could this possibly be implantation bleeding, or am I just paranoid?
Avatar n tn I've been on loestrin 30 for over a year, and I started taking the pill to control mood swings and to get lighter periods. For several months my periods have been really light and only lasted 2-3 days, and this month I finished taking my pills on Friday 19th, and 4 days later I still haven't got my period. I have been having unprotected sex with my boyfriend for a few months, but I always took the pills at the right time, and very rarely missed one anymore.
551454 tn?1276782284 I voted yes. Before trying for a baby I was on Loestrin 24 for 7 years. And one time I was on antibiotics and didn't think about back up protection and got pregnant. It ended in a miscarriage, but not from being on the pill. Loestrin 24 worked great for me, minus that whoops. It was my own fault and not that of the pill. And after I have this baby I will go back on it.
Avatar n tn I would just be interested to know whether anyone (or someone you know) has ever got pregnant on the pill? And if so did you have bleeding (maybe misinterpreted as a period) in the early stages of the pregnancy?
Avatar n tn I was prescribed a benzoyl peroxide wash and clindamycin phosphate roll-on and it worked great. I was on it for like a year or so and hardly ever break out anymore.
