Missed Lo Loestrin pill on Thu. (remembered Fri. But only took one) had unprotected sex Fri., but followed up with Plan B. Possible that I'm pregnant?

Possible: Anytime you have unprotected sex, there is a possibility of pregnancy. People are not as predictable as we might like and both sperm and egg have been known to be viable longer than expected.
Always use condoms for std protection and another effective birth control method when you have sex, if being a parent is not something you want at this time! ...Read more

I've been taking lo loestrin fe for ten days now never missed one pill. Had unprotected sex but did not ejaculate in me. Should I be worried?

I've been taking lo loestrin fe for ten days now never missed one pill. Had unprotected sex but did not ejaculate in me. Should I be worried?

Yes. . .: Despite taking oral birth control pill, you still need to worry about sexually transmitted diseases/infections. Since you took 10 days' worth of pills w/o missing any, it's unlikely that you'll get pregnant. Remember that even if he doesn't ejaculate inside you, there's enough sperm in pre-ejaculate to get you pregnant if you weren't on pill. But pill doesn't prevent stds which is why condom is ne. ...Read more

Only had one shot of Depo-Provera switched to lo loestrin only been on them for two weeks but now I'm ready to have a family how long would it may take me?

Only had one shot of Depo-Provera switched to lo loestrin only been on them for two weeks but now I'm ready to have a family how long would it may take me?

Unknown: Depot Provera (medroxyprogesterone) can have a delayed fertility effect. However, with only one shot, I would think you wouldn't have a lot of suppression of your fertility. Only time really tell. I usually tell my patients to wait for a couple of normal cycles to start trying to get pregnant coming off birth control. Good luck. ...Read more

Take the test: If you want to know if you are pregnant, take a test. In today's world you do not need to wonder if you are pregnant or not based on symptoms. Pregnancy tests are available at any pharmacy and in minutes you will have your answer. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. ...Read more

Recently started lo loestrin fe which is 10mcg. I missed 1 on 3rd week and took 1 9hours late in the middle of 2nd week. Now spotting, unprotected sex?

Common: Skipping pills or taking them at different times each day will frequently cause spotting and breakthrough bleeding. The contraceptive efficacy is still good as long as you take a pill each day - regardless of the timing. The failure rate is higher for both spotting and pregnancy with the lower dose pills. ...Read more

Chances of me becoming pregnant. What are the chances of me becoming pregnant if I had sex with someone and there was no ejaculation. I've also been on the lo loestrin birth control for a year now but I just switched a week ago to the loestrin 1/20 fe

Chances of me becoming pregnant. What are the chances of me becoming pregnant if I had sex with someone and there was no ejaculation. I've also been on the lo loestrin birth control for a year now but I just switched a week ago to the loestrin 1/20 fe

The: The chances of becoming pregnant while on the pill are very low if you are taking your pill each morning. Have you skipped or missed any pills? Also you actually switched to a birth control with more hormone as opposed to a lower dose. Also with no ejaculation the chances decreasing even further. Are you around the time of your menses? Did you skip your menses? I am an ob/gyn in boca raton if you would like to be seen. Www. Obgynspecialistsllc. Com is the website for our practice.

So I am on lo loestrin fe. My boyfriend and I have sex using spermicidal condoms and he does not cum inside, however I am spotting a week before perio?

Menses irregular: Common occurrence and difficult to place a cause for it on any particular changes. If you think that you somehow might be pregnant, get test urine strips otc and test yourself one week to 10 days after you miss your period (or not). You should be fine. Good luck. ...Read more

I'm on Lo Loestrin as BC and took amoxicillin a few weeks ago. I had sex at this time w/o protection. Missed my period but had a neg hpt. What do I do?

I'm on Lo Loestrin as BC and took amoxicillin a few weeks ago. I had sex at this time w/o protection. Missed my period but had a neg hpt. What do I do?

Nothing is 100%: Still possible to get pregnant using low dose BC pills. Do a second home pregnancy test and you may need a pelvic exam and blood pregnancy test from your GYN. I always suggest BC pills PLUS condoms, foam, spermicidal gel, sponge or vaginal suppositories: "protect yourself at all times". ...Read more

Been on birth control pill lo loestrin fe for a month and a week. I was suppose to get my period yesterday and had sex todaythe condom broke?

Probably ok: If you have been taking your pill on time and didn't miss any this month you are probably ok even though the condom broke. But if you want to be extra safe, take Plan B (you can get from pharmacy without prescription) or see your doc. Other options include Ella (ulipristal acetate) (another prescription form of emergency contraception if you weigh >160 lbs) or a copper iud which works better than anything. ...Read more

I just started lo loestrin fe today. Can I have unprotected sex today? Will it be effective?

May not be safe: It may not be safe unless your last period was less than 1 week ago. If you start your pills today, you should use a backup method of birth control (condoms with spermicide) during the first 7 days of the pill package. Birth control pills will start to protect you from pregnancy after the first week, if you take them correctly. ...Read more

I've been taking lo loestrin fe for 9 days and was wondering when I can have unprotected sex?

No not without risk: You can not rely on oral contraceptive effectiveness the first month on them. You need to use other forms of birth control until the second month.

If I take 2 lo loestrin fe pills a day. Will this stop my heavy bleeding? Once it stop do I go back to taking one pill a day?

If I take 2 lo loestrin fe pills a day. Will this stop my heavy bleeding? Once it stop do I go back to taking one pill a day?

Bleeding and iron: You should see a gynecologist to find out why you have your heavy bleeding. Iron will replace the iron you are losing in your red blood cells lost in your bleeding. See a gyn to see if you have a hormonal imbalance, or bleeding from fibroids. Iron will have no effect on the cause of your bleeding nor will it stop it. ...Read more

What's the likelihood of me being pregnant if I've been on lo loestrin for 3 wks, had unprotected sex & he thinks he may have pulled out late?

What's the likelihood of me being pregnant if I've been on lo loestrin for 3 wks, had unprotected sex & he thinks he may have pulled out late?

It's possible.: It is possible to conceive after being on a hormonal contraceptive for only 3 weeks. It is easy and cheap to perform an over the counter pregnancy test. These can be falsely negative in the first 2 weeks, so if there is concern, it should be repeated I. 1-2 weeks or followed up by a blood test. When in doubt, go to your doctor. He/she can explain in more detail or order a more specific test. ...Read more

I am taking lo loestrin 10 mcg from last one month to stop my period for two months completely, but since yesterday I am getting spot, I am 54,?

Low dose: The estrogen is in birth control pills to regulate bleeding. The lower dose is safer but gives you less lee way as far as control of bleeding goes so you are more likely to have breakthrough bleeding with the lower estrogen dose. We are thought to use the lowest effective dose of drugs and this sounds like it is the lowest effective dose for many things but too low for you for this purpose. ...Read more
