Hi all, I just had a few questions about my birth control. I started taking Lo Loestrin Fe a month ago, and my gyno directed me to start with the white pill on the first day of my period and go through the two white, two brown, and through the blue. I finished my last blue pill yesterday, and no sign of period yet. I was spotting randomly during the month of taking the pills which is normal according to side effects and I have had unprotected intercourse twice in the month (yes he did come in me, I know, not smart) well after the first week of taking the pills. I don't think I'm pregnant only because I'm not showing any signs, (but I will take a test and check!!) but I am showing signs of my period, which should be coming today or tonight. So my question is, if my period does not come tonight, should I just start taking the blue pills instead of the white? Or if it does, can I take the white like I did last month? Let's say my period does arrive later, do I switch from blue to white or save the white for later? I'm sorry this must be confusing, I would ask my gyno, but when I call the office is closed, but I will try calling again later. Thank you!

Hello, Ally! How are you?

That's very odd, normally you should start with the blue tablets, that way you are immediately protected against pregnancy. If you started with the white, then it's necessary to take the blue active tablets for a full 7 days, before you are protected against pregnancy.

And your new pack should always start at the beginning of the pack on the blue tablets, with the white and brown at the end.

Have you consulted your doctor about this, yet? What did they advise?
