Has anyone else missed periods on Lo Estrin 24 before? It happened to me 2 months ago and I took 2 pregnancy tests and they were both negative. I got my period last month though but now this month it still hasn’t come. I’ve read on their website that sometimes its common to miss your period but it still worries me. Has anyone else missed a period on this?

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.

Haha, thanks HoneyBear…it makes me feel better to know that someone else went through the same thing. I get to take the test in the morning when Fiance gets home from work.

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.

So-I just called my OB/GYN’s office and spoke to a nurse and she said that it is totally common on this pill to miss a period every now and then but if I go 2 months without one I should take a pregnancy test. So I feel much less nervous. Thanks for all your support ladies! 🙂

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!
