Getting pregnant loestrin

Common Questions and Answers about Getting pregnant loestrin


Avatar n tn Hello I started Loestrin 24Fe on March 9, 2008 the Sunday after my period started, but since I have not had a menstrual cycle and I am freaking out! I hear all of this stories regarding blood clogs in your brain because of no menstrual cycles with the pills, is this true?? I've also noticed that my sexual drive has decreased a bit and I've been a bit moody but not as bad as other's I guess!! I am also getting a lot of headaches....
Avatar n tn Is it possible to get pregnant while using Loestrin and condoms? Can a urine pregnancy test be positive due to an ovarian cyst?
17501880 tn?1457286330 After the second month on them you have nothing to worry about as far as getting pregnant. Make sure to take them everyday around the same time. The pill is very effective if you take them the right way. Hopefully you didn't take that extra pill because this will mess up your schedule with your pills and possibly your period. Try not to stress. I don't see how you could be pregnant if you're on your second pack of pills.
Avatar n tn It does not matter of the time you take your pill, as long as you take it everyday. A slim chance of getting pregnant from precum.
Avatar n tn I am not sexually active so I am not pregnant but is there a reason for not getting it? Is this bad or is it because its a new pill? on my older birth controls (i have tried 2 before this) I never had a problem and they would come every month. is this something i need to see about or should i just see how this month goes?
Avatar f tn I recently stopped taking the pill at the end of a pack on October 1st. I still have not had a period. Is this normal? My husband and I want to try getting pregnant but I want to be sure my cycle is back to normal. What is going on? HELP!
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?
Avatar m tn I was on Loestrin 24 Fe for 5 months but my doctor switched me to Lo Loestrin 24 Fe because she thought I needed a lower dose, as I kept getting recurring yeast infections. The first month that I was on Lo Loestrin I got my period, very short and very light for about 2-3 days. This month I delayed my period by a week because I was going on vacation. So when it got to the placebo pill I just took a week of "active pills" from another pack.
Avatar f tn I was on Loestrin 24 for years and eventually stopped getting my period at all while on it. My Dr. informed me that this is normal for a lot of girls on Loestrin. As long as you are taking it every day when you are supposed to, you shouldn't have to worry about being pregnant. However, if you forget to take your pill, read the insert that comes with the pack for exact details of what to do. I think they suggest using an alternative form of birth control (i.e.
Avatar m tn I have also gained a good 10-15 pounds since starting the pill up, which I have read is a common side-effect for Loestrin. The effects from the pill have me thinking that I am pregnant, even though everything else states that I am not. Between these effects and my horrible, horrible anxiety, I decided to go off the pill. Initially, the first couple days after stopping in the middle of my pack, I felt better. The swelling in my breasts went down and I had more energy.
Avatar f tn I've been on Lo Loestrin Fe for about 6 months now - I'm halfway through my 6th pack. I haven't had a period since I started taking it, I'm not pregnant, and everything has been 100% regular. I get cramps occasionally on my placebo pills, just never a period. My doctor recently diagnosed me with mild bronchitis and prescribed me a 5 day Z-Pak.
1041303 tn?1421390941 Ok so I am about to go on BC this next cycle and the Dr gave me Loestrin 24 fe because I have migraine's she said this was the safest. I have not heard anything good about them on here. I am looking for sucess stories. I am going on BC for 6 months to give my body a rest, and lose some weight. Well the stories I have heard on here say this pill makes you gain weight I dont need anymore So If you have taken this and it was ok for yoyu please let me know!!!
Avatar f tn Hi! Normally an orbital steroid injection will not affect the concentration of your contraceptive pills. However, the chances remain. So using an additional barrier contraceptive like condom or vaginal diaphragm during this month should help avoid pregnancy totally. You need to be particularly careful 2-3 days before to 2-3 days after ovulation—which you can know by charting with an ovulation kit. Hope this helps. Take care!
Avatar m tn I hurt all the time in my lower back, lower stomach. I have sharp pains in my ovaries and during all of this i'm not getting pregnant either. This has been going on about 6 years now and the pain is only getting worse. I never went to the dr. because I couldn't afford it. I MADE myself get insurance last year because I KNEW I needed to get help. There was no way I was going to be able to afford what was needed to be done.

Avatar f tn I am two weeks into my first pack of Lo Loestrin and I had unprotected sex about 5 weeks ago. I had awful cramps and some bleeding today but it stopped. Am I pregnant?
Avatar n tn Last period was July 28, 2007. Next period should have been August 23. Ovulation should've been on or around August 9th. 8 days late for period as of today (8/31). Took a pregnancy test last night (8/30) and it came out negative. Took a pregnancy test this morning (8/31) and it came out negative. I'm having a lot of symptoms similar to pregnancy: bloating, overly-emotional, cramping, lower back pain, food cravings (ice cream, mexican food, potato chips, etc).
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.
Avatar f tn I’ve been taking Lo Loestrin Fe for about 6 months now. I started it last October but switched due to getting my period twice a month. The pill I switched to, made me non stop bleed and was so much worse so I switched back. Now it’s been 6 months taking it and I started out bleeding twice a month (spotting) & was very irregular. Now in the 6th month I am 10 days late for my “period”.
675579 tn?1235778371 I got married Oct 18th and have been taking Loestrin for the past few months but recently I've been moody, tired all the time, getting heartburn (which I've never had before), and yesterday I got very bad cramps and was bleeding, today I've had cramps off and on and have been spotting most of the day. I have 4 more pills to take before I have my period and the home pregnancy test I took today was negative. I just can't help but feel that I may be pregnant...
Avatar f tn Try going to the doctor and getting a blood pregnancy test. They are more accurate than the home tests.
Avatar n tn Two years after I had my ovary removed, and I was 34 at the time, I got pregnant. I have a healthy, normal little five yr old brat. Don't worry! The cysts will not cause you to NOT to get pregnant. It also sounds like you do have another cyst, which would mean your birth control pills probably have to be switched. Although in my own opinion, the birth control pills cause cysts because they suppress ovaluation. If I were you, I would try another form of birth control. Good luck and don't worry.
Avatar f tn and a few days later(sun april 4) i started bleeding but i bled heavily for 3 days,then a week later i started bleeding heavily again but for only 2 days??I'm also on loestrin bc pills. Am i pregnant??
Avatar n tn Hi I hope someone can help me I am taking Amoxicillin 250mg which is an anitbiotic and am also taking Loestrin 30 for birth control. I heard that the antibiotic effected the birth control so thought best to use a condom ... unfortunately it split and now I'm worried I could be pregnant.
389774 tn?1306445272 Now I am not due for my AF until 11/21. Now when I had started taking the pill, I was getting my AF right after my last white pill. It's been 2 months, since my AF has been coming 3 days after my last white pill. Do you think I can be pregnant? And could I test tomm or wait till my after my AF is due?
Avatar f tn Two days ago I did some heavy lifting at my work. I was wondering if I should be concerned about being pregnant. Please help.
Avatar f tn yes this is possible to get pregnant from depending on his potency, see if you miss your period but still i would get a pregnancy test and see what it says...
