no period on Lo Loestrin
Hello,

I've been on birth control since I was 15 (now 23) for ovarian cysts. About a year ago I switched pills from Loestrin 24 fe to Lo Loestrin 24 fe. Within the year I think I've had 2 periods (only lasting a day or so) and a few days of very light spotting. I do know this pill is the lowest dose of hormones you can have with a birth control pill. Is this normal? I am also getting married soon and I want to make sure ill be able to get pregnant and being on the pill for this long won't hirt my chances once I get off. Thanks!

Hi there,
There may be breakthrough or intracyclic bleeding and spotting especially during the first three months of use. If bleeding persists or occurs after previously regular cycles, you should get checked for causes such as pregnancy or malignancy. If pregnancy and pathology have been excluded, bleeding irregularities may resolve over time or you may need an alternative method of contraception. Do keep us posted.
Take care and best regards!

YES! I was actually on lo loestrin 24 when I conceived.. i did miss a pill here and there however they said i was still protected i have always been extremely fertile but you should have nothing to worry about! However, most doctors do reccomend waiting at least one cycle after stopping bc to start ttc :) Good Luck
