I was on lo loestin Fe for three months and it caused my periods to occur every 11 days. My dr. told me to switch to sprintec the following Sunday even though I wasn't done with the loestrin pack. After being on sprintec for five days me and my boyfriend had sex using the pull out method. My period is now a day late and I'm only on week three of sprintec. How possible is it that I'm pregnant? I regret the decision and realize how stupid it was... just really nervous and scared. Someone help!
Switching pills mid cycle like that can mess up your cycle. I doubt seriously that you are pregnant if you went from one type to another without any miss or a break when you took no pills. You should have been covered even if he did ejaculate inside of you, if you had been consistant with the Loestrin and you switched right over to Sprintec. No worries, your cycle will probably come in the middle of the 4th week on Sprintec but if it doesnt , no worries yet. If you take two packs of Sprintec and still do not have a period by the end of the second pack, you should test for pregnancy. Again, unless you missed any pills, as long as you had a pill every day, I really doubt you are pregnant-the switch has just altered your cycle because you started a new pack in the middle of the old pack. You should get your period sometime in the 4th week of the Sprintec. Pulling out does NOTHING to prevent pregnancy, by the way, and it is a wasted gesture. You should be covered contraceptive-wise and he doesnt need to pull out at this point. The reason they tell you to use condoms, at this point, is to prevent STDs, not pregnancy. If he has had his bare self inside you have already been exposed if he has STDs so he doesnt have to pull out. If you are sure he doesnt have any STDs there is no need to pull out to prevent pregnancy-your pill has you protected. It wont protect against STDs though, that is why they harp at you about still using condoms. If you are in a long term relationship and you are sure of your partner, you dont need them and you wont get pregnant if he comes inside of you.
