Avatar f tn I have been on lo loestrin fe for over 2 years now and have missed a period here and there but my doctor said this way normal and I have read that many others have this same issue. Is it normal to miss more than one in a row?? I've also heard that this pill causes people to not have their period at all, is this true?
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 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 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.

Avatar n tn I was on loestrin for roughly 10 months... the last 4 of which I stopped having my period altogether. Now I have been off of the pill for 3 weeks and still nothing? Blood work and urine tests show I am not pregnant. How will I get my body back on track? I feel horrible as a result and regret taking this medicine.
Avatar n tn My gf had not been on birth control for a year or more. She began taking Lo Loestrin Fe on Oct. 20, the first day of her period. The side effects (increased acne, severe anxiety and depression, emotional lability) were so severe for her that she decided to stop before the pack was done. I believe she took roughly 2 weeks and a few days of the pack (maybe 3 weeks total), then quit them because she was so miserable.
Avatar n tn nothing found, no yeast, no bacteria, no std. He has had me trying douching with different things and nothing seems to be working and I feel like I am putting my body through more by doing this, could this be my birth control?
Avatar n tn I was on loestrin 24 fe about a year ago and had a really hard time adjusting to it. It took a good three months for things to get somewhat normal again. I had my period for almost a month the first month on it. The next month it lasted about two weeks. Each month getting shorter until it was 3-4 days long. I'm no longer on it since it made me have horrible mood swings.
Avatar f tn I'm taking Loestrin24Fe right now, and I haf breakthrough bleeding for a couple days. And I was suppost to get my period on the 21st but still haven't. I think it's because one of my pills fell down the drain so I missed it. But then again I could be pregnant. But enough about me haha I think loestrin24Fe is a good BC to take.
17501880 tn?1457286330 12pm on Saturday March 5th my boyfriend and I experienced a broken condom. I have been taking Lo Loestrin for about a month now and am on my second row on my second package. I have been researching since, that I should be able to take 2 Lo Loestrin pills and that they work as an emergency contraceptive. Can someone please confirm with me on whether or not I can.
Avatar f tn I've been taking loestrin 30 for a year with no trouble but this month my period hasn't came (no pills missed). I visited the doctor and she wants me to come back for blood tests if it still hasn't came by tomorrow. I've took 2 pregnancy tests - both negative and i've now been off the pill 7 days (my break) and an extra 2 days after that. I've had mild period like cramps for over a week, headaches every day and a dull pain in my lower back/pelvis for the last few days.
Avatar f tn I have been on Loestrin 24fe for three years. I haven't had a period since December 7th. As of today, I am missing my 3rd period. Is this normal? I haven't missed any pills, but I was on an antibiotic in October. I did have 2 periods after that though. I have taken 2 pregnancy tests and they were both negative!
666357 tn?1225322414 I got my period last pack at the normal time (right at the end), but I then i got it two weeks later on this pack. And now I'm breaking out. What's going on? I've been taking them since last June so I should be more regular, right? I think I'm eating fine... like 1300 cal a day? And I'm petite.... PLEASE HELP! i'm in crisis-mode here.
Avatar f tn I have been taking Lo Loestrin Fe since January 2013. While on the pill I was having a period every two weeks. Was this normal? 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 n tn I have been on Loestrin 24 for about 8 months and have had no issues. Last month 11/22 instead of taking the 4 placebo pills I immediately started my next pack of pills to hold off my cycle due to vacation. About a week or so later I began having a brown flaky discharge. I discounted this as spotting for messing up my cycle but it has not stopped yet. I took my last active pill yesterday and started the placebo pills today but I have yet to start a real, fresh period.
Avatar f tn I started using Loestrin 24FE around the beginning of October '10. I got married on the 23rd of October, and have had regular intercourse since that time. The first month of using Loestrin my period didn't come regularly at all. Now it's coming at least every other week, sometimes closer. Also, it's lasting for about 5 to 7 days. I'm getting a little concerned, because I'm finishing my third packet of the pills, and the periods don't seem to be getting stable like I assumed they would be.
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 m tn Hi, so my story is kind of long, but I really just need help in sorting things out: When I was 17, I started taking Lo Loestrin Fe birth control pills. I took them until my sophomore year of college, which I stopped in Feb. 2015 because I was on antibiotics and was not sexually active at the time, anyway. I had no side effects while taking this pill & still received a regular period, from what I can remember.
Avatar m tn I am just SO nervous that I am going to gain weight and my running will be negatively impacted on the lo loestrin fe. Does anyone know if lo loestrin fe causes any weight gain or does anyone have any positive/negative experience with it?
Avatar n tn Also, stressing out about it or being stressed in general can cause you to have light to literally no period. I was on Loestrin for 1 1/2 years and I didn't get a period for 3 months one time. Just to make sure though, try taking a pregnancy test. You always want to explore all options. Hope I could help!
Avatar m tn I am on Loestrin Fe 1.5/30 I missed two days of pills in seperate weeks but I realized and took it the next day and doubled up on pills. I am sexually active but my boyfriend uses a condom everytime. I have not recieved my period yet and I am on the 2nd week of my next pack. I checked 3 pregnancy tests to see if I was pregnant and they all came out negative. I have been feeling nauseas and feel tired. My stomach hurts and is crampy. Does this mean I missed my period for last month?
Avatar n tn Back in March I went for my yearly with my ob/gyn and asked to start a one of the new birth control pills with shorter periods. So, he started me on Loestrin-24. BUT, also at that visit he found a few polyps on my cervix. He used silver nitrate and said that should take care of it. I did have some bleeding after that and then started my pills. WELL, I had to go back in 2 months to make sure the polyps were gone and told him I hadn't had a period.
