I started taking Lolo about 12 days ago and notice some spotting happening yesterday. Normal? Before lolo, I was on Seasonique for 9 months.

Normal w/OC switch: A recent switch to a new dose, new brand or new product of oral contraceptive might result in some spotting. Your body is adjusting to the new hormone levels. It may take 1 or 2 months for spotting to stop. For sexually active females, it is recommended to us a second form of contraceptive during this period. ...Read more

Took Lolo for three days only, two days later, brown blood. No intercourse in this time. Is it normal to have brown blood after stopping?

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

I'm having problems with my birth control Lolo and I'm scared that after taking it for roughly a year, it may not be working.?

I'm having problems with my birth control Lolo and I'm scared that after taking it for roughly a year, it may not be working.?

Why?: You do not tell why you think your BC is not longer effective. It is not uncommon for periods to become very light or to skip all together while taking some forms of birth control, especially the low estrogen or only progesterone brands. If you continue to take your medication as prescribed, you should continue to get effective control, unless you are on other meds or skip. Talk with your doc ...Read more

Could u get pregnant w/ no intercourse? (on lolo bc)

Could u get pregnant w/ no intercourse? (on lolo bc)

Sure: No sexual intercourse required. As long as some fertile semen get into the vagina of a fertile woman, there is chance of a pregnancy. That means if she lies there in a position such that her vagina (inside) can be seen, and he squirts semen from a distance but it lands inside her vagina, it could be the start of a new baby. So, always think contraception if wanting to avoid a new baby or an STD. ...Read more

I've been on LOLO BC for 2 years. I take it correctly. My BF touched down there. He said no pre/cum. Could I get pregnant?

Very rarely: Women who take their birth control pills correctly, are protected every day, all the time. They have no fertile days, so they don't get pregnant regardless of on which days they have sex ("touched me down there" means different things to different people". If still worried, one can do a home pregnancy test 3 weeks after sex. Tests are inexpensive and sold in stores everywhere. ...Read more

Tests are accurate: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, or medications. A correctly done urine test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon. ...Read more

How much iron is in the birth control lolo. I take Palafer iron therapy for my low iron and am worried of an overdose.

Low amount of iron: Only the last 7 tablets in the pack are iron supplements. Each tablet has 75 mg of ferrous fumarate. Taking it with one tablet of Palafer would be safe. Consider taking the iron with orange juice as it will help with absorption. ...Read more

I'm on a bcp called Lolo. I've noticed I've been peeing a lot and I'm not sure if it's related to the pill or my anxiety.

BCP & increased urin: Are there any other symptoms?? Ie burning with urination? — its unlikely that the BCP is causing this — especially if you have been on it for a while. At this point — the best thing might be for you to have a urine test — and culture if needed to help find out what is causing this Good luck ...Read more

If my bf rubbed 'down there' with very little precum on his hand, could I get pregnant? On LOLO BC for over a year. Never missed a pill & a virgin

Not likely, but...: Realistically your chances are exceptionally low perhaps not zero but it would be more likely to get struck by lightning.

However, the Devil is in the details. Did he push his fingers inside or only outside, either way unlikely. But be careful because sexual transmitted disease's can still be transmitted in various ways not unlike would you describe. ...Read more

Sperm: It takes but one sperm to fertilize an egg. There are plenty of sperm in the pre-ejaculatory se creations of the penis. Therefore, if the sperm got in the vagina you could get pregnant. In simple terms: penis + vagina — birth control = pregnancy. ...Read more

On the mini pill for 5mths. No period since last Oct but cramping on the sugar pills. Did not have sex. Is it normal? (the brand is Lolo)

On the mini pill for 5mths. No period since last Oct but cramping on the sugar pills. Did not have sex. Is it normal? (the brand is Lolo)

Probably normal: Lo Loestrin oral contraceptive pills are called that because they are low in BOTH the estrogen & progesterone components of the pill. Typically, this situation results in irregular bleeding....not no bleeding. But no bleeding certainly happens. I think it would be worth a call to your doctor to discuss. Obviously not pregnant if no sex, but he/she may want to adjust the pill. Good wishes:) ...Read more
