Lo loestrin fe missed period after switching brands
1 Reply RSS
I have been on the birth control aubra for 5 months and usually bled during my 7 day placebo week. However I recently changed brands to lo loestrin fe. I finished the whole pack and I have not gotten my period I'm a little nervous but I always took my pills on time and never missed one. I didn't spot or have any break through bleeding either. I started a pack when I would have started my old birth control pack as that's what the website told me to do. Is there any way that I could be pregnant or is missing a period normal? ## The only way to be sure, of course, is to check for pregnancy, but skipping periods, or having irregular cycles can be normal side effects of oral contraceptives, according to FDA reports. Other side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, and h...

Lo Loestrin and Amoxicillin
1 Reply RSS
I have been religiously taking Lo Loestrin Fe for 3 years and I recently got strep throat and was prescribed Amoxicillin. I'm in the middle of my pack and on the second day of taking the antibiotic I started a period which I usually don't get. I had unprotected intercourse on the third day and I'm wondering if I can get pregnant from it or if it's worth taking Plan B? I'm really afraid of the side effects of that though. ## Lo Loestrin Fe (norethindrone acetate + ethinyl estradiol) being a form of birth control, should prevent or at least significantly lower the possibility of pregnancy - regardless of whether you're on an antibiotic. Antibiotics may reduce bad (and good) bacteria within the body, but to my understanding should not interact with birth control or ...

Anyone Experiencing Missed Periods And Slight Weight Gain On Lo Loestrin Fe Birth Control
91 Replies RSS
I have been on this pill since March and only got my period the first month I was on it and it was very light and only lasted a couple of days. haven't gotten it since. I have taken tests...all negative. Any one else experiencing this? ## Since there are hormonal based contraceptive tablets, both of these symptoms can be normal side effects of using the medication. There is really no harm in skipping your menstrual cycle, there are even contraceptives on the market that are specifically designed to let you skip for several months in a row. However, if you are concerned, you should consulted your doctor. Are there any other questions? ## I probably started taking this in April/May. I can't remember exactly. For the first three packs I didn't get a period. On the fourth pack I...

I've been taking Lo Loestrin Fe at the same time every day consistantly for two months with no period... is this normal? ## Yes, it can be. These do contain hormones, to prevent pregnancy and they can affect different people in different ways. Some women will menstruate regularly and some won't. There is really no harm in skipping, but if you are concerned about it, you should consult your doctor. Many women use their birth control to skip their menstrual cycle, especially for important events, such as marriage or vacations. Have you contacted your doctor? ## i started taking lo loestrin fe the first day of my last period and during the 3rd week i had unprotected sex with my boyfriend. i had been having breakthough bleeding. Is this okay? id missed one pill at the beging of the ...

No period

Hi. I just took the last brown pill in my second pack of Lo Loestrin Fe. I have not bled at all yet. On the first pack I had bad cramping on the last white pill and then spotted on the first brown. Such light spotting that I only needed a panty liner for 2 days. Is this normal? Should I be concerned about pregnancy? I've never missed a pill and started the first pack when I was supposed to start the new pack of my old birth control, Yasmin. I am switching back. This pill is making me insane with worry. ## yes, its very normal. light spotting on lo lo estrin or lo estrin is what a lot of people experience ## Gia's answer is correct. Contraceptives, such as this, contain hormones to prevent ovulation, which prevents pregnancy and changing the amount of hormones in your body can ca...

had to restart lo loestrin due to missed pills
7 Replies RSS
Hello, so I have been on this BC for 4/5 months i had to end up throwing a pack away because I've missed pills and i had my period in the middle of the month. Then i started a new pack and when I was supposed to start my period after the blue pills were completed I just had very light brown discharge not enough to use a tampon or pad. Now I started another pack and still just have the light brown stuff here and there and no period. However I have felt light cramping a few times. Is it normal that I missed my period because I had to restart and throw a pack away? ## Hello, Elle! How are you? Yes, that is normal, unless your doctor sees some cause for concern. When you're taking OCs, your period is actually caused by a hormonal withdrawal, the tablets for that week don't conta...

Lo Loestrin Fe and PMDD

How long do I have to take Lo Loestrin Fe before it's effective for PMDD (Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder)? I just started taking it today and I would like to know what to expect. ## Unfortunately, there is really no way to give a definitive response, it can vary from person to person. Some have a great response the first month, but for others it may take several months. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, irregular bleeding, and PMS-like symptoms. Have you experienced any improvements, yet?

When will bleeding stop on lo loestrin fe 28?
2 Replies RSS
I started loestrin fe 28 before my period was due. In about the end of the second/beginning of the third week, I started bleeding heavy then it has lightened up but it's been almost two weeks now. Can someone PLEASE tell me if this is normal, when it will stop and if I can do anything to make it stop sooner. Thanks! ## Hello, Marie! How are you? Yes, irregular bleeding can occur for about the first 3 months, until your body gets used to the hormonal changes that are caused by these oral contraceptives. There's really nothing you can do to stop it, it will just have to stop on its own. If it gets to be very heavy, or doesn't stop after a few months, then you should check with your doctor as this may not be the right one for you to take. The FDA lists other side effects as pos...
