BCP question

I'm just a lurker but I was wondering if anyone else has had this happen to them before... I was on yasmin for over a year and I just switched to Loestrin Fe, which I have been on before and I haven't gotten a period. I have never missed a period on any of the BCPs I have been on (including Loestrin) but I am on my third pack of Loestrin and have not had AF yet. I took a pregnancy test both times I missed AF just to be sure I wasn't KU, and I'm not. I know that you can miss a period once in awhile, but more than one in a row? Would you be concerned?

Re: BCP question

  • BCP can really do weird things to your body, so it might just be messing with you. I've heard it can take up to six months to normalize, but I would probably make an appointment or get the doctor to give you a call so you can talk about it. I wouldn't be freaking out since you said you took pregnancy tests, but it'd probably be best to get the doc's advice.
  • It's possible. It can take your body a few cycles to adjust to a new pill.

  • I'm on the generic for Loestrin Fe. I haven't gotten a period three months in a row and am not pregnant. Sometimes I will get it, sometimes not. BC acts differently for everyone, but I wouldn't say your issue is abnormal.

    Once upon a time, there was a boy who loved a girl, and her laughter was a question he wanted to spend his whole life answering.

    Thanks for the input, I panicked because this has never been normal for me. But it sounds like its much more common than I think. I guess I'll just enjoy not having AF while it lasts!!Big Smile
