A year ago my doctor prescribed me lo loestrin while I was on the pill some months I would have a period and another ones I wouldn't, she said that it was normal. I stopped taking the pill a month ago. After I stopped taking the pill (like 2- 3 days after it I got my period) my period was supposed to arrive again 3-4 days ago... My period has always been very irregular (with or without the pill) I'm wondering why my period is late ... Also a week ago I had a secretion as if I was in the 15th day of my period ... So does the ovulation start late once you're not taking the pill? My BF and I have been using condoms but just in case I did a pregnancy test and it was negative. Is it accurate?

They are hormonal based contraceptives, so the irregularities while you are taking them are normal and yes, you can expect some to occur for awhile when you stop taking them, as well.

These work by suppressing ovulation, when they do that, your natural production of progesterone is mostly suppressed and it is the sharp drop off in it that allows your normal period to occur. It will take awhile for your body to return to normal on its own and start ovulation again, thus returning to a normal cycle.

If you're concerned, then please contact your doctor.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Hi!, I took Lo loestrimin Fe to help delay my period. My doctor advice that may not help because I have not take any contraceptive pills for 10 years. As she told, my period came in the day it was suppose, even taking the pill, so I stopped taking them 5 days before I finished them all (3 blue & 2 white pills). And after my period was done, we used protection (condoms) of course. Is it normal to delay or missed a period, even when I had it then?
