Lo 24 going on 3 months

I am presently sexually active, but I am also on Loestrine 24 as my form of birthcontrol. With this type of the pill you are suppose to take the pill 24 days a month and then take the iron placebo the other 4 days at which time your period is suppose to come. I have been taking it regularly and have not missed pill but I have completed two cycles without a period in either of the designated times. I have taken a pregnancy test each missed cycle (2 negs as of now). Is this common for females taking Loestrine 24 or has anyone else ever had this experience?

i have been on tricyclen lo, is that the same thing? its a low dose pill, and one month, i did get my period in the deignated time frame of the green pills BUT it was so light that i thought it was implantation bleeding so i went to the doctor and got a test, and luckily i wasn't pregnant, by the way i also have a question regarding this, small but needs answering; are you SUPPOSED to take the green pills, or are they just there so that you never forget to take them???

I was also on Lo Loestrin and I did not get any period at all. I do have to warn all of you though that I am only 100lbs (as weiht can play a factor) and I had missed one pill here and there and I am currently about 3 weeks from conception of 5-6 weeks pregnant! I will be going in for my first internal ultrasound on tuesday but my hcg levels have risen so it was not a chemical pregnancy and although my hcg levels were low because they doubled every 24-48hrs chances of miscarriage are slim to none at this point.. so PLEASE if taking this pill makes sure it is at same time everyday and DONT miss ANY pills!!!
