Common Questions and Answers about Bleeding between periods on loestrin 24


Avatar f tn I have been on loestrin 24 fe for over a year. I ended my true period September 13. September 20, i started lightly bleeding but it was dark and old. The next day it turned it a light brown/red. Saturday and now Sunday i have barely bled but again it is dark. Now, this all isnt enough blood to fill a tampon or pad. I have never had any spotting while on the birth control until now. My bf and I do have unprotected sex and he ejaculates inside me every time, whish is about once or twice a week.

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 n tn I am 21 years, and have also taken depo provera a long time ago (think I was 18). When I was on the injections, I started to bleed a little between my periods, and after some time I experienced big bleedings after orgasms. Since that time, I have tried several different p-pills to control my period (which the last 3 years has been almost constantly), and nothing helped.
Avatar n tn My HCG levels were 1402 on Friday and only moved to 1600 on Monday. I have been bleeding every since. Doc says the bleeding could go on for a while. Good luck to everyone.
Avatar n tn if you stopped your pills the 6th.....bleeding on the 10th is a stopping the pill bleed.....AF. i started bleeding 2 days before AF was due and bleed for 2 days and spotted for 5. i am now 5 weeks PG. when i was on the pill and stopped taking it i had a really nasty period. did you stop mid pack? i did and that was the worst period ever. remember the pills in the beginning and middle of the pack are stronger and if you stop taking them then your period after will be awful.
Avatar n tn you can get pregnant on the pill if your on a low dose, i.e. your only on it for irregular periods.
Avatar m tn I refused BC until I was 19 almost 20- All the symptoms I had (very painful heavy periods and cramping even when not on my period) have disappeared while on BC.
Avatar f tn About a year ago I was put on Loestrin 24 because I was having break through bleeding between periods for about 3 years. It worked, I haven't had any break through bleeding since I started the Loestrin 24 and my periods typically lasted only 2 - 3 days. Then they slowly went to 2 -1 days and then 1 day and then last month I didn't get a period at all. I got a little nervous but then last week I got my period on schedule for 2 days.
Avatar n tn I was taken off Desogen and put on Loestrin FE 24.Gained 24lbs in 2 months. Last month while still on it on day 11 of my cycle my progesterone tested 0.04 It should have been in the range of 3.3-25.6 On day 20 I was negative -0.02 Should have been in the range of 3.3-25.6 I was taken off Loestrin FE24 and put on Ortho Cept. Day 21 this month it was 0.04 should have been in the range of 4.4-28.0 My doctor told me to take 10mg of Provera with Ortho Cept.
Avatar f tn i was supposed to start my loestrin 24 birth control pills on sunday but i accidentley lost it so i was forced to start on monday...i got my period that saturday night but my period stopped yesterday which means it only lasted 4 days which is not normal for i decided to have sexual intercourse and after it was done i wiped myself and saw a very light brown color appear on the toilet paper...i was confused cause i havent bled in a day and now today i found the brownish color...
Avatar m tn The doctor prescribed me to Yaz, but after 9 months of taking it and over 3 months of spotting between periods I stopped taking it for a month. I was put on Loestrin 24 in December. My period started on either the 20th or the 21st, and I started taking it the Sunday after (12/27). On January 1st (5 days into the first week) I had sex and the condom broke. As soon as I realized what happened, I got freaked out and we stopped.
541196 tn?1293556536 With my experience, I was on Loestrin FE, for 6 years and decided after taking 9 pills of a new pack that hubby and I wanted to start trying for kids. So, December 1 i stopped and within a week I began to spot (withdrawal bleeding) for a couple of days, then December 31 I had my first period off birth control. I got pregnant with that cycle, just because the condoms didn't work for us that well. I had a m/c, but I've been regular 29 day cycle ever since.
Avatar n tn Also, I'm on Loestrin 24 Fe birth control pill. Have been on it since April of this year. My periods have always been regular, about 28 days in between and last for about 5 days. My periods, after taking the pill, are still the same 28 days, but have gotten lighter and less days (about 3-4 days it lasts). If I think of any more to add, I'll do so. Someone please help before my doctor appointment!
Avatar f tn The only thing making me think of pregnancy is the late, light bleeding (could be implantation bleeding?) and the slight cramps. I usually only get cramps on the first day of my period and they're way worse than this.
Avatar f tn It seems like every pill I try-either it helps my acne and makes me hungry and sooooo...... tired. I am also on Vyvanse for ADHD and that decreases my appetite. However, I have been on Yaz for a few months, and I swear it reverses all the positive effects of Vyvanse (more energy/decreased appetite) because I am so tired and hungry all the time. In the past I have tried Lo-Estrin, Nuva-Ring,& Ortho Tri Cyclen. Does anyone have any recommendations for the perfect pill--i.e.
734635 tn?1231817643 I guess they can be expelled anytime up to a year from insertion and some people never know. Not to scare anyone... guess it wasn't for me. I'm back on Loestrin 24 (my fav) and antibiotics once again but I will be smarter about it! What a stressful, nervous ordeal of a day! I was scared! Also I have cysts on both ovaries and end of pregnancy I did not. Side effects are a joke! My cousin got prego on it and you can see how it ended with my story.
Avatar m tn I would also add, thought I have no idea if this matters, that I have experienced some breakthrough bleeding between periods. I am thinking it might be vaginal thrush, but I'm not a doctor. Exactly why I'm posting on here, can anyone help me or point me in the right direction? Any and all feedback is much appreciated. Cheers.
Avatar n tn I have been on bc for about 12 years. I took orthotricyclen for most of those years until about 8 months ago my new gyno suggested Seasonique to help with my migraines. I thought it sounded great. I was on Seasonique for 7 months and I literally got to the point where I thought I was going crazy. I didn't know how to deal with life, I cried all the time, I wasn't motivated to do any of the normal things I did in life, etc. I couldn't make myself function like my normal self.
Avatar n tn Only one worked, which was loestrin 24. The Bleeding is moderate with smaller clots, I have cramping and these weird contraction type things. I am now on a pill called Low Ovural that is bogus I was on it 1 month the bleeding never stopped-my Doc keeps saying give it time....hope much time Lady? Until I bleed over? This whole situation makes me wish I was born a male!!!!!
Avatar f tn She took the pill that is 24 days on and 4 off. She was okay for three months then her periods stopped. Our physician said that was okay, just keep taking the pills for now and we planned on a physical when she got home in May. My daughter was actually kind of thrilled not to have to deal with it during the basketball season. But things went downhill fast. I didn't know what was wrong with her, she just seemed emotionally flat.
Avatar f tn I was put on metformin to lower my sugar levels and to help regulate my periods. I am currently taking Lo Loestrin 24 FE for BC, and I had been on this before with no problems, or breakthrough bleeding. In fact I never had any of that with any BC I have ever been on. I have been on this specific BC for 3 maybe 4 months now . the first month I was onconsistant. But from then to now I am sure to take it everyday. (Time of day may vary based on my work schedule but I never completely forget).
Avatar f tn The last 2 weeks that I did it, it was Loestrin 24. Then I quit taking it for a couple weeks, and I just started back on it. This time it is Ortho-TriCyclen. I had taken it for 2 years and no side affects with it. But, I have never taken the Loestrin before then. I have a dr appt next week so hopefully I will figure out what is going on!
Avatar f tn i was put on provera for 7 days to stop the bleeding, but after i finished taking the pill i started on my period again. this time "normal," no bizzare watery fluid. i am currently looking for a obygynee to see what this watery blood could have been, since i'd never had it before. I feel you guys! Best of luck to you, hopefully the dr i find can tell me something useful to bring back to you.
Avatar n tn I had no change in my periods (no extra cramping or heavier bleeding). Recently began having abnormal bleeding and removal was recommended to determine if it was caused by the Paragard or some other cause. My Gyn said that after the abnormal bleeding stops (if related to paragard) I can have another one inserted (even if the Paragard was the cause since it took over 8 years for any problem), which is what I plan to do. No problems for over 8 years, no hormones, no side effects...
Avatar n tn ) I actually bled the entire time I was on Depo. I stopped bleeding on Feb 2nd, so I figure that's a good sign. Everything I've read recently says you'll get symptoms of pregnancy after stopping depo, and believe me I'm feeling them! Nausea, headaches, lower back pain, sore and enlarged breasts, etc. I did not want to take a HPT because of of the negative things I've seen posted, but after seeing yours, maybe I'll take a chance and try it.
Avatar n tn Anyway i'm 35 now and have lived with both since then. I was put on Dianette to prevent my bad periods and spots etc and once my body had adjusted to it (i'm not very good on the pill) it worked like a charm for 6 years. However, i decided to come off of the pill early last year and have sonce developed the spots and weight gain symptoms again. HOWEVER, my periods have been brilliant!
Avatar n tn The birth control pill therapy may be working - I had to switch from Mircette to Loestrin this week due to breakthrough bleeding and abdominal pain on Mircette. I feel much better on the Loestrin and the PAC's seem to be much less noticeable on it as well. Too early to tell, though, as it's only been 2 weeks. Did you ever get rid of your symptoms, Aussiemom? And if so, how? And if not, what do you do to cope with them? Thanks for your comments!
Avatar n tn Also, I have heard about primrose oil and flaxseed oil being good to regulate hormones or help PMS symptoms. (I was mainly on yasmin for PMS symptoms / moods and to regulate my periods) Thank you!
Avatar n tn Painful nipples with the creamy discharge on one side, green on the other. I got this thing so that it would control my periods because they are so heavy, but that's 4 days a week vs ALL THE DANG TIME with this thing. I'm sending my husband in for a snip, and I'm having this thing removed immediately. Thanks, and good luck to everyone out there with similar issues.
