I would take a test, just to be sure.

I’m on Loestrin Fe 24, too, and I’ve had no period for the last 3 years.  My gyn says it’s perfectly normal.  Test just to ease your mind, but it’s one of the perks of the pill.  Makes the $$ worth it!

Yes, I also take a generic of loestrin and had 3 or 4 months without a period and then my pill was recalled the next month!  Eep. However, beyond that I sometimes skip a month or two with my “period” (AKA birth control withdrawal bleeding; it’s not a true period) because loestrin doesn’t build up much of a lining, so sometimes there’s nothing to shed!

I’ve talked to my doctor, and have been assured this is normal.  That’s not to say I don’t get a little paranoid once in a while and take a pregnancy test just to be sure…
