I'm 17 years old I first started Loestrin 24 On March 20, 2013. I was having a period every 9 days. They lasted 7 days... Talk about painful. I am sexual active with my boyfriend. I take my pill everyday. Sometimes I don't have them with me. I usually take it at around 8am but there have been a few days I've taken them no later than 6pm. The first month (march) I got off my period the day I started the pill, the 20th. Then started again on March 9 and ended April 2. Then had spotting April 12,13 and 14... Could i possible be pregnant? My boyfriend left out of town April 14 and we had intercourse the night before? is there a possiability I could be and should take a test or is the spotting normal for the second month? please advice would be lovely!
When you first start them your period can be erratic with spotting. Its your body getting used to the hormones it can be a few months until it regulates. Do a pregnancy test and use the first morning pee. You have got to get better on the time you take them. If taken perfectly the pill has less then a 1% failure rate. Taking the pill late or missing a few raises that to 8 %
