On the birthcontrol pill Loestrin and have been taking it sense probably early- mid 2011. I try taking it at 9 every night but as expected, I have my slip ups where I forget to bring it with me when I'm out. When I first started the pill, I would get constant long periods/ spotting that could last up to 11 days so they decreased it to fix it. Every sense, I have not had a period (sense April/May of 2012). While I thoroughly enjoy not having periods I do have concerns, curiosities and questions regarding if this means anything specific? Like will this in any way affect my fertility if/ when id plan on having a child (no time soon!) etc.. And if this is normal in general? I've asked my OBGYN and his answer was "well do you want periods?" Me:'no' OBGYN:"then we're good" which didn't leave me with much information ..
Your period is not tied to fertility. There is a study right now to see if its even necessary to have a period when on birth control. Aren't you taking the sugar pills but instead start the next pack? When you are on birth control the lining of your uterus is decreased. So there is little to "bleed".
