Oral contraceptives: If you are taking an oral contraceptive as directed, at the same time every day, you should have regular periods. Add a condom to correct oral contraceptive use and pregnancy is very unlikely. If you are not sure, please get a home pregnancy test - they are very sensitive and should be reliable a week after the expected period. Read more

Maybe: Do you remember to take your pills every day? If not, check a pregnancy test. If you do remember, an unexpected pregnancy is much less likely. I tell my patients on Lo loestrin Fe that approximately 30% of women will stop having menses on this pill. Hope this helps! Read more

Had some light bleeding for about 4 days on lo loestrin fe. Is that normal? Second month, no period first month

Had some light bleeding for about 4 days on lo loestrin fe. Is that normal? Second month, no period first month

Breakthrough bleed: Breakthrough bleeding (bleeding at the wrong time) is very common on birth control. It happens in about 1/3 of users. Its no big deal and usually self corrects over time. If you are not satisfied or it continues to happen then consider using a different birth control method. It is a common side effect and does not mean something is wrong or that the pill is not working. Read more

Lo Loestrin: The goal of many of the low dose oral contraceptives is to have lighter flow for shorter periods of time. If you are taking your pills correctly, the fear of pregnancy should not be one you have. The lighter flow and fewer numbers of days of bleeding is a goal, not a liability. Read more

Can I still get pregnant taking lo loestrin fe? I had sex in february, a light period in march & no period yet in april.

It's not 100%: Birth control pills do not confer a 100% immunity against pregnancy. Likewise, missing a period a few periods can be do to bcp and does necessarily mean pregnancy. A pregnancy test is advised in these instances to help you stop the guessing game. Read more

No period since dec. 2 not pregnant im on birth control (lo loestrin fe) the last day of my period was dec 2. And I still haven't had my period. I've taken 2 tests, and they all come out negative. Could the birth control have stopped my periods?

Since: Since pregnancy is the number one reason for a missed period, did you take your pregnancy tests at least 1 week after your missed period? If so, then they are probably accurate and you are not pregnant. There are other reasons besides pregnancy that can cause a woman to miss a period such as: stress, diet, excessive exercise or a hormone imbalance such as with a thyroid disorder or polycystic ovarian syndrome. Birth control pills with low estrogen content (like lo loestrin fe) can also cause missed periods by preventing the lining of the uterus from building up during the cycle, so there is nothing to slough off when it is time for your period. If you continue to have missed periods and you find this worrisome, talk with your doctor. You can always switch to a higher estrogen pill so you will be more likely to have a period every month.
