Hi Sarah,

I wouldn't worry. Based on my research, there isn't a huge difference between the blue and white Lo Loestrin Fe pills. The white pills contain 0.1 mg of Ethinyl Estradiol; one of the synthetic estrogens used in most birth controls. The blue pills also contain 0.1 mg of Ethinyl Estradiol plus an additional 1 mg of Norethindrone; which is another type of synthetic estrogen. Basically, you just took a smaller dose of birth control, but not by much. This shouldn't effect you in a major way, you might just experience some light spotting and/or cramping.

Please post back if you have any additional questions or concerns, I hope this info helps!

Thank you so much! Should I keep taking the pills as I regularly would and not start over?

Hi Sarah,

You're welcome! If it were me, I would continue taking the pills as normal. Please post back if you have any more questions.
