I was on Loestrin 24fe until i switched to its (almost)generic counterpart. Its very similar in side effects, which is almost none, and thats all I cared about. I had a period on Loestrin, it just took a few months for my body to understand the ‘only 4 placebo’ thing. Then it was nice and light and only a few days (like 3). Holy hell I wouldnt take a pill that doesnt give me a period, I didnt that about 2 years ago (seasonale) and I gained 32 lbs in 2 months! Probably just me but I guess my body WANTS badly to have a period monthly, and Im ok with that!

I’m on a multi-phasic pill (different level of hormones each week) and I like it.

I’ve been on Ocella for almost 3 years and recently started getting really anxious, which I think may be related. My Gyno told me a that this was actually my last option of oral BC because I had been on every other type. I break through, get really bad cramps, and terrible mood swings….I’ve been toying with the Mirena idea lately, but I am somewhat skeptical about putting a foreign object in my body for 5 years…and not getting my period at all.

@Shirinjoon: I’m on LoEstrin24Fe to regulate my cycle (and for contraceptive purposes after I’m married), and I still get my period. It only lasts about four days. You may want to ask your doctor about it; I’m pretty sure this particular version isn’t supposed to prevent you from having periods entirely.
