Is it possible to take loestrin 24 within 35 hours of each other and not get preggers?

Is it possible to take loestrin 24 within 35 hours of each other and not get preggers?

Maybe ... but risky!: These work by 'fooling your body' that you're already pregnant, so no egg released = no pregnancy. The last week of pills have no hormones usually, and start a period. If you space your pills significantly more than 24 hours apart, this 'fooling' my not happen, and you could release an egg = possible pregnancy. Best = stop pills, have period, restart new pack. Use foam and condoms until new pk. ...Read more

Could you tell me if someone was to double up on loestrin 20 (the pill), would it cause serious illness?

Possibly: Big question is, why you want to do that? Birth control pills are prescribed at the lowest effective hormone dose that stops ovaries from releasing eggs. No eggs = no pregnancy. The higher the level of hormones, the higher the risks of complications like overgrowth of the uterus lining, or blood clots in your legs, lung, heart, or brain (esp. If you smoke). Talk to your dr about what you want. ...Read more

Hormone regulation: It is difficult to predict the length of time it will take for your natural hormones to return to normal following hormone birth control therapy. Some ppl can have normal cycles immediately while others can take many months. If bleeding is heavy and continuous it would be best to see a provider who can monitor you and evaluate for other causes of prolonged bleeding as well as potential anemia. ...Read more
