period

Avatar n tn i've been on the birth control pill loestrin 24 for about a year. its supposed to shorten periods, but i haven't had one at all since i've started this pill. my doctor said that this is fine, only it seems a little wierd/risky so if anyone knows anything about this, i'd just like a second opinion.. i've had no side effects at all or anything, just no period, no cramps, just nothing. also, if does anyone happen to know if i can go for a few more years like this? is it safe?
Avatar f tn I'm on loestrin 24 fe and have been for a little over 5 years now. I love it. Before when I went from Ortho Tri Cyclen to Loestrin I don't remember a delay. But, it was 5 years ago. If nothing in a week or so, a test wouldn't hurt. Good luck!
Avatar f tn I was on this for 5 + years and it worked great as far as effectiveness, shorter periods and no mood swings. The problem I had was the weight gain and breakouts on my face. Just this past month I switched to Yasmin at the request of my dermatologist.
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 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.
1674462 tn?1304118350 I have constant pelvic and vaginal pain 24/7 and its HORRIBLE during my periods that I can't even get out of bed usually. My old gyno put me on YAZ continuously (with no sugar pills) for 4 months straight with no periods to see if the pain would calm down and id didn't and YAZ made me very swollen. I am hesitant to even try this because I have gained over 25lbs the past 1 1/2 yrs, from when the pain started and I got sick from this all. PLEASE HELP!!!
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.
1313343 tn?1274836815 Does anyone know if loestrin 24 fe will cause weight gain?? every birth control i have been on i have been gaining weight.... and i looked up loestrin and it said it doesnt and you get lighter shorter periods.... and only have it for 3 days or so... im not on any birth control rite now but i just got my results back from my papsmear and it said its ab-normal! whatever that means. And im scared to go back on birth control since my miscarriage that was back in 2008!! =0[ someone help...
Avatar m tn I'm on Loestrin 24 (low dose combination pill) and it's not uncommon for me to go 2-4 months without a period. I don't purposefully "skip" them- I take my placebo pills or just take nothing for the 4 period days. Often I will get typical period cramping and bloating but no blood during the time that my period should be coming. Pregnancy tests are negative (I did one blood test last time this happened, but I can't afford to do that constantly).
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 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.
1227805 tn?1272841532 Is there something wrong with me or was it beacuse of the pills(Loestrin 24 Fe). I am 29 and would like to get pregnant but it is not going very well. I am tried, my breast are a lil sore but that is about it.
Avatar m tn I missed 2 periods in a row. I'm 23. I am on Loestrin 24, and my periods have been extremely light for quite a while now (to the point where they are almost nonexistent anyway- more like brownish discharge). I took 4 pregnancy tests (2 each month). All were negative. What could this be? The pharmacist said potentially stress/anxiety. My weight is normal (low but not underweight- BMI is 19) and my body fat is normal too. I do work out but not "strenuously".
143123 tn?1274304425 I have been on Loestrin 24 for 5 years. I love it! Last month however, I went to the dermatologist and she talked me into trying Yasmin for a month due to unpleasant acne around my chin that has been showing up month after month. She said Yasmin was also known as an acne medication and should be comparable to Loestrin (i.e. no mood swings, short periods, etc.). Well, it wasn't. I was a total B***H to everyone, especially my husband. He seemed to have caught most of it, over nothing.
Avatar m tn I'm really starting to worry. I've always had very light, short periods on Loestrin 24Fe, but I usually don't MISS periods. I don't have any other symptoms other than the missed period. The only thing I can think of is that I do weightlift, but not "strenuously" (only heavy lifting a few times a week) and I'm not even lifting that heavy (just squatting 100 lb). I'm 5'6", 120 lb and 20% body fat, so nothing outrageous there.
Avatar n tn I have been on Loestrin 24 Fe for almost two months now. I have never had a missed period before but I had one last month. I am used to switching birth control pills every six months or so and still never had a missed period so I do not think it is my birth control that is causing my missed period. I have taken a few HPT's and they have come back negative. I have recently started to experience nipple tenderness, some cramping for a few days and one day of spotting.
551454 tn?1276785884 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 m tn Additionally, I have not had my period in about 3 months or so, but I honestly don't think I am pregnant. I am on the pill Loestrin 24, and I hear it's common to miss your period due to the increased estrogen levels in this pill. The issue with my clitoris and the slight cramping is the most concerning. I also have some slight discharge, with is similar to that of a yeast infection. I am hoping it is that and nothing more, but should I be concerned about anything else? Thanks!
Avatar n tn ive had bv twice it was always accompanied w/ discharge, but no itching. sometimes a yeast infection can occour on the outside and cause a rash and of course itch! but hey, im no "cooch" expert!
Avatar n tn I just wanted to say that I never really had any IBS problems until this past year. I started on Loestrin Fe a few months ago and suddenly I am having chronic diarrhea. I tried keeping track of what I was eating to so if I coincidentally developed lactose intolerance but I pretty much deduced that everything I ate gave me diarrhea. The weird things is that before I started the Loestrin I spent many years on other birth control pills and I was fine.
Avatar f tn Hi, I'm a female who has been developing excessive hair growth *all* over my body & face as well as terminal hairs(dark hairs). I've also been getting irritated easily & have weird mood break downs/cry alot/feel like I have alot of cortisol built up + lack of energy which leads me to think I have some kind of hormonal disorder such as cushing's disease/syndrome or hirsutism. Can anyone recommend what kind of doctor I should see?
Avatar f tn I was on the Depo-Provera shot for five years, and I pretty much had no periods while I was on it. I decided to switch to the pill because I was thinking that perhaps the shot contributed to my weight gain of about 100 lbs. So, I saw a doctor in my OB-GYN office who put me on Loestrin 24 FE. I began taking them in the beginning of July, right when my next Depo shot would have been due. I haven't really been back to having regular periods, though.
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'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 am 18 & went abroad to germany in april. forgot about the time difference & accidentally skipped 2 pills (loestrin 24 fe). my period came the next day. lasted about 7 days (usually 4 on medicine). this month, my period is 5 days late. did have sex with my boyfriend about a week ago. ive taken my pill everyday up after my slip up in germany. ive checked my cervix multiple times since my period skipped. it's usually low, puckered & slightly open. i am having creamy, white discharge.
Avatar f tn Went to a doc (new doc that isn't familiar with me) and she attributed symptoms to BC and prescribed LoEstrin 24 Fe. To my surprise, she stated I could switch to this BC the next day, even though I was mid-pack on the Trisprintec. The second day of Loestrin, husband and I had sex without condom. One week later, had brownish spotting, three days after that had more brownish spotting (this would have been the day I would have gotten withdrawal bleeding from previous pack).
Avatar m tn Didn't like the mood swings and I had spotting in the middle of my cycle every single month. So, my doctor switched me over to Loestrin 24 fe. When I picked up my prescription from the pharmacy, the pharmacist simply told me to completely finish up my Ortho pack of 28 pills and then immediately begin the loestrin pack. No back up needed. Well, the first month I got my period during the nonactive pills as expected. Only lasted about a day. At least I assume that was my period.
