I've been taking Loestrin 24 Fe for approximately 3 weeks now, and I've been experiencing breast tenderness, extreme fatigue, headaches, and breakouts (which I only ever had around my period). I'm especially bothered by the sudden breakouts. Should I call my doctor and ask to be switched or wait it out? I have never had acne, and I don't want to start now.

Most side effects of birth control pills are similar to symptoms of the first trimester of pregnancy. They will gradually disappear after your third pack. If it is really bothering you, call the doctor.
