When I was on LoEstrin, my periods gradually got so light to the point where they just stopped. It wasn’t something I was fond of-I like that monthly reassurance that we’re not pregnant yet-but I just always had some cheapo pregnancy tests under the sink just in case I became neurotic. 

I think it’s a pretty normal thing- I’ve had other firends that this has happened to. If you’re really concerned, you should check in with your gyno

@SoonToBeMrsT16:  I’m on Generess which is really similar to LoEstrin. I completely skipped a month one time and it really weirded me out. I had been on Ortho Tri Cyclen for years beforehand and never missed a period. Needless to say, I hit up the dollar store to get tests to make sure but everything was fine. I just randomly skipped a month. Apparently it’s not too uncommon.

ETA: Just saw your ETA that it’s been 7 months. Nope, mine came back the very next month right on time. Sooo this probably doesn’t help a whole lot. Le sigh. Sorry.

This has happened to me before as well. Just keep pregnancy tests on hand and pee on a stick every so often to make sure nothing slips past the radar. 🙂

@SoonToBeMrsT16:  

are you on a combo pill or progewterone only?

when I got put on the mini pill, my period stopped for 7 months. Gradually they came back, but It was a little worrisome for a while lol
