Do You Still Take Brown Pills On Missed Period?

I've been on Lo Loestrin Fe for 4 months now. I always bled every other week so I was never afraid of missing a period because I got then all the time. However, last month I missed my period which I read is normal for this birth control. We use condoms and pull out. When I missed my period I still took the two white and two brown pills. I still have not had my period and it's been a week since I've missed and took those pills. Do the brown pills still protect from pregnancy if you did not start your period? Or are they just sugar pills and I should be worried now of maybe being pregnant because they weren't actually birth control?

I forgot to mention that we do not always begin with a condom but by the time he finishes, we've put one on and he still pulls out.

Yes, regardless of whether or not you had your menstrual cycle, you should still be protected, as long as you haven't missed any pills.

Have you consulted your doctor? Have you made sure you didn't miss any tablets?
