Yes, I missed a period for like 3 months!!!! I was scared out of my mind! lol

It eventually came after like 5 pregnancy tests.

I think it tends to happen on low-dose pills from time to time, I have no idea why, but it’s happened to me before too.

I never get mine at all. It was super light to begin with so the doc said it would be normal if it totally disappeared. Regardless after not seeing my period for the first 3 months I felt the need to take a test just to check but it was negative so I stopped freaking out. I’ve been on it for over a year now and I’m not pregnant so I think it’s ok.

I’ve been on Lo Estrin for 2 years and it happens to me all the time. Sometimes I don’t get it, sometimes it won’t start until the second day. When I do get it, it usually only lasts for a day or so. I take my pill like clockwork so it usually doesn’t scare me too much to miss it 😉

I have had it happen with birth control pills before.  The period you get on the pill isn’t a real period so it’s not like your body ‘needs’ to have a period every month on the pill so sometimes it just doesn’t happen.

I did with the generic of LoEstrin! Scared the crap out of me – I know it’s not likely to get pregnant on the Pill and using condoms, but if it’d happen to anyone, it’s be me. *Rolls eyes.* Glad to hear the nurse said it’s normal!
