When I went for my yearly check up in january 2012 I had my gyno switch me to loestrin 24 fe..I took it for about 3 weeks but in between i kinda skipped cause i would forget and i wouldnt take it at the same time everyday. the last week ( fourth week) i didnt take it at all and my husband and i had unprotected sex MULTIPLE times... almost everyday..its may already and i havent gotten a period but i HAVE gained alot of weight and i get alot of headache and i have a huge appetite!. could it be the pill? or should i test again for pregnancy? ( i tested in mid april and it came out negative)
The fact that you missed pills within the first 3 weeks of starting Loestrin does make the risks extremely high for you to become pregnant. However, if you have done a pregnancy test in April and that was negative then you probably aren't pregnant.
Are you continuing to take the pill?
That could be causing the weight gain, etc. I would suggest that you go back and see your doctor ... and get a proper check done considering you haven't had a period for about 4 months.
All the best.
When was your last menstrual period? When you tested in April, there is a possibility it was too early. If you missed multiple pills and had sex daily without back up then it is very likely you are pregnant. Retest and see what it shows. If it is negative (or positive for that matter) it is time for a visit back to the gynecologist.
