Hi! I've been on Lo Loestrin for 8 or so months, and it's been fine. I've never missed a pill. I do skip the last 2 brown pills. I had my period as expected a week and a half ago...but today I just started bleeding again! I thought spotting was supposed to happen in only the first 3 months. Any insights / should I be worried? I 100% do not want to be pregnant!

Spotting can really occur any time, because your natural hormone levels still fluctuate and then the oral contraceptives also have an effect.

Unless your doctor feels there's reason to be concerned, then it's not usually anything to worry about. Other side effects, as listed by the FDA, may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache and weight gain.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Okay. Any time. I feel better. I guess I scared myself about "implantation bleeding," but I do trust that it's just an effect of the pill since I've been incredibly diligent about not missing a single one.

Thank you for your reply!
