I’ve been on Loestrin 24 FE for over two years now and I don’t even really get a period anymore; just some light spotting.  I was on Loestrin prior to the Loestrin 24 and the only difference was that I would have a really light period (like 2-3 days).  Hope that it works out for you!

obviously this doesn’t happen to most people, but i had a blood clot in my eye while i was taking the generic of Loestrin. after the doctors figured out that was the cause, I also realized my body had formed another smaller one that dissolved on its own almost immediately while i was taking the brand name version. i took this bc for less than two months total, after having been on ortho trycyclen lo for 3 yeears. so if you experience any weird side effects go to your doctor and insist if you feel something is wrong. i was turned away from the emergency room the first time because they thought i was “making it up” and was unable to get an appointment with the doctor that originally prescribed the pill bc they thought i was too young (23) to have a blood clot from the pill so it was probably “exhaustion”.

@pert86 I have been on Loestrin 24 FE for a good while now (since I gained almost 35lbs on Seasonale) and I LOVE it! I have almost no side effects (sometimes I get  a headache when I take the placebos at the end of the month, but it goes away after the first 1 or 2 packs) I dont have any cramping and my period has become very light! I love having only 4 placebos instead of 7! Its a good one to try and see how your body reacts to it- I got a sample month to try out from my gyno, ask if they can hook you up with one!

Has anyone had frequent yeast infections from this BC? I read in a pamplet that it was a frequent side effect and it worried me… any help would be great!
