I am on my first month of lo loestrin fe and will be taking my second brown pill today. I had slim to almost no cramps. Is it normal that i have not yet had a period?? My doctor told me to give it about 4 months for my body to get use to the BC since I was previously taking Ortho Tri Cylen and this BC makes me feel completely different. Is this normal to not have a period or even cramps?
Yep, it can be very normal. Likely you still have some hormones from the Ortho TriCyclen and now the Loestrin Fe hormones together. He is very correct in saying it can be 3-4 months to regulate out on this new Pill. You may have no period then a heavy period, breakthrough bleeding, etc. until you get regulated out. It is normal for most Pills to lighten a womans cycle and reduce cramping. Dont worry-just keep taking them like you are supposed to. If you go 2-3 months without any bleeding or spotting, then consult your Dr again, but you should do fine. Loestrin Fe also has iron supplement in the inert hormone free pills so be sure you take those. You may yet start, too, so just hang in there and ride with the changes for a few months.
