I am almost done with my first pack on Lo loestrin fe and 2 days ago I started spotting, no big deal. It seems to have gotten heavier and I have cramping (I'm still on the blue pills). Is this normal? I haven't skipped any, maybe I have taken it a 30 mins-2 hours later than I planned but that's it. Since I'm bleeding now and almost done with the pack should I maybe just skip to the white and brown pills and have my period and then start the new pack? I also have a wedding I'm going to on the 30th that I would like to not have my period during. I know that's a lot of questions, but I'm new to this medication! Thanks!

Hello, Ren! How are you?

Yes, that can be normal for the first 3 months, or so, while your body is adjusting to these oral contraceptives.

No, you should not skip any of the active tablets, but if your doctor okays it, you may be able to skip your period week to try to avoid having it during the wedding you're attending.

Is there anything else I can help with?
