Hi! So I just started taking birth control for the first time ever (Lo Lesterin Fe) and I started taking them mid cycle, on October 21. I was due for my period yesterday, the 28th. I still have not gotten it. On the 26th, i had protected sex since I knew I would not be protected with birth control until at least 7 days after starting it (Had sex 3 times on the 26th, new condom each time). So I guess my question is should I be concerned? Or is my body just adjusting to the birth control? Sorry for being naive this is my first time ever taking birth control so I do not know some of the basics! thanks for any feedback.
Hi! I'm not an expert re the scientific background of this pill, but I can say that when I was on it, I NEVER got my period. By the 3rd month, it became increasingly unsettling since I was sexually active. I switched birth control pills and my period came when it was supposed to. Another possibility is that your body is adjusting to the hormone and by the second month, your period should come back. Update us!
