I've been taking lo loestrin fe for a year next month. My periods have really lightened up, usually about 2 days and i have very little bleeding or its just extremely dark (almost black) (also sorry tmi!), anyways, my period only lasted one day. It was heavy yesterday, extremely red and thick. It seemed normal to me. Then today I'm off it? Some brown discharge but thats about it. I had sex the day before my period was due but with a condom and I also had sex January 1st without a condom. My period started on time, i cramped and had all the pms symptoms. My favorite thing to do is look up things and get freaked out. I saw some things saying that I had implantation bleeding and could be pregnant, but then I read on birth control the longer you're on it the shorter your periods get. So... basically i'm asking if I could be pregnant? I've never missed a pill and i always take them on time.
Birth control is 99.99% effective when taken correctly and you seem very modest about taking your pills on time everyday and if you are as you say you are covered even without a condom! I wouldn't worry as long as you are taking your pills as directed there should not be a problem! Lo loestrin is a combination pill if I'm correct it prevents ovulation so those "periods" are not periods they are withdrawal bleeds.
