Loestrin fe and breakthrough bleeding

Common Questions and Answers about Loestrin fe and breakthrough bleeding


Avatar n tn But, it's different with every person whether or not you will still have breakthrough bleeding, your cycle, or just skip it. I am on Loestrin 24 and I did that and I spotted for a day, only when I wiped and that was it. I didn't bleed until my next cycle. It's not harmful, unless you continue to do this for every cycle. But, I was told by my doctor it was ok for special things, like vacation, wedding, etc.
Avatar f tn 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 I've been on Loestrin for a month, and have had a little bit of breakthrough bleeding. In the past I've been on Lo-ovral, Alesse, and another strong one I don't remember the name of. Compared to those others, this one rules! The side effects are practically non-existent. Give it a try!
Avatar f tn hey the only thing i know about Loestrin is i was on Loestrin 1/20 FE a low dose and i never got my period ever the 8 yrs that i was on it. They said it is okay, just if you miss to check for preg, here is also some interesting info on what happ when you take BC pills or any of that stuff.
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.
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 f tn I am now on Microgestin 1/20 Fe generic version of Loestrin. Anyway what does anyone know about this? Any major side effects I should be worried about...I was reading that it causes bigger breast, weight gain, and low sex drive...is that true for anyone else who has taken it?
1122278 tn?1259449876 On November 12,2009 i started to have some bleeding. It was brown and then turned red.The doctor told me it was breakthrough bleeding due to my birth control. I had unprotected sex on the 21st of November. My boyfriend pulled out but we did not use a condom. I was beyond scared so I took planb. I was told, I most likely did not need planb because i take my birth control regularly. I still took it to help me settle my mind. The day after i took it, i noticed clear discharge.
Avatar m tn I have been on Lo Loestrin Fe birth control from about 4 months now. The first month I got my period on schedule and experienced no side effects. The second month I had breakthrough bleeding for about 2 weeks in the middle of the month, but no period on the placebo pills. The second month I had light brown spotting the 2nd week but again no period. Should I be concerned?
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 n tn i am going on the fourth pack of lo loestrin fe. i have had my period twice for the past three packs. i am goin on vacation soon and am worried i will have break through bleeding when i go. if i do have break through bleeding can i double up on the blue pills to stop the bleeding?
Avatar f tn 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 f tn I am on my third month of Lo Loestrin Fe and I am really confused to what is going on with my body. If anyone could help it would really mean a lot since I am so worried and anxious about this situation- and on top of that my GYN doesn't do much to help me. I have taken every single pill (some within a 3 hour window) and have had some breakthrough bleeding throughout the past few months.
Avatar n tn i have had the same symptoms with loestrin fe...i have had breakthrough bleeding and cramping about 15 days each month! did anyone else gain alot of weight?
Avatar f tn I have been on the birth control pill Lo Loestrin Fe for about 4 months now. I take my pill everyday at 8:00 pm but sometimes I take it a few minutes early (up to 5 min) or a few late (up to 30 min late). I was wondering if this would heighten my change to get pregnant drastically? Because I had sex with my boyfriend about two weeks ago and he finished inside me.
Avatar f tn I am on the oral contraception Lo Loestrin Fe and I just started my placebo pills of my second pack yesterday. I was on this BC last year for 3 months then got off because of breakthrough bleeding constantly- tried Microgestin and it was awful so I decided to try this pill again. I've bleed quite a bit on this pill with spotting. My last period was from Feb 4-10th. Then I had unprotected sex (pull out method) on Feb 11th and 14th.
Avatar n tn 2006 - Went on Yasmin but changed a year later due to an insane amount of bleeding. 2007 - Went on Yaz instead and bleeding was much better but libido decreased tremendously and seven months later, had a HUGE anxiety attack while out of town for a conference. My GP put me on Lexapro, felt good for about 3 months, and then we stepped me off of it because I assumed it was ennvironmental stressors and not linked to Yaz. Two months later, another huge anxiety attack.
Avatar f tn I am on the birth control Lo Loestrin Fe and I just began the first of my four sugar/iron pills today on my second pack. I am wondering if I could be pregnant and what's going on with my body. Here's my info: I have taken my pills as directed- on time and have never missed a pill. There have only been maybe, tops of five times that I have taken my pill 2-3 hours late at the most. I have spotted quite a bit on this pill- and the spotting has resembled a period most times.
Avatar f tn put me on this while we wait for my essure tubal to heal up - I have had cramps (like period cramps) like every single day - and breakthrough bleeding as well. In addition to headaches and overall crappy moods - does this sound familiar to anyone? This never happened to me on OrthoTriCyclene. Thank god it's only temporary, but is it normal? Thanks!
Avatar m tn During week 2, I missed 4 pills accidentally and I took the 4 pills I missed all at once because I did read that you're suppose to still take the pills as soon as possible. I did experience breakthrough bleeding. I am now on week 4, and I had sex yesterday which is the first day of the white pill. I was wondering if because I did not throw out my pack and start a new one am I still at risk of getting pregnant? Should I continue the rest of the pack now or stop?
Avatar n tn i said to these nurses probably 4 times about my bleeding, pain in my lower back, and vaginal pains and all i get is "so youre here for your annual?
Avatar n tn Switched to Ortho Cyclen - am on 5th month I think and still having breakthrough bleeding. I am so frustrated. I love the Ortho brand, but I think Ortho Cyclen is the strongest they make.
Avatar f tn Hello all! So just last month I started taking loestrin fe 24. I'm almost done with month two (week and a half to go) during the first month, my fiance and I didn't have sex once, just to be safe, but as soon as I got off the placebo pills and stopped spotting we were crazed sex fiends again and we're going crazy.
Avatar m tn I switched birth control from Ocella (generic of Yaz) to Loestrin 24 fe, and I've read side effects that say vaginal irritation is a possibility beacause of reduced estrogen. I've changed soaps 5 times, everything from Summers Eve to tear free hypoallergenic kids soap. At this point I'm literally hoping it's either chlamydia or gonorrhea so I can just gets some freaking help. Does anyone have any idea what could cause all these symptoms together? I've tested negative for abnormal pH.
Avatar m tn The first month I got my period right as I started taking the brown pills. And I often have breakthrough bleeding which is a normal side effect of this birth control. When the second month on the pill came around, during the time I was supposed to have my period I had VERY light brown blood that maybe lasted three days if that. Since then I occasionally find brown blood or red blood in my panties out of nowhere. I always have safe sex.

Avatar n tn I completely skipped my period in the first month of taking it, no breakthrough bleeding and have actually found it has leveled out my moods quite nicely. I used to get murderously ticked about ANYTHING the week before my period and now I am just my usually chill self. I am lovin' it.
Avatar f tn I have been feeling really tired, moody and snappy, I have also had a lot of breakthrough bleeding and heavy periods. I have also been really anxious.
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).
