  • The longer I was on Loestrin the shorter and lighter my periods became. Of course, the cramps and other PMS symptoms became lighter too. If you've been on it for a long time maybe it's something along those lines.

  • When I took it, I had 1 period and for the rest of the time I was on it, I never had a period. My doc said that it was fine not tp have one.

  • I've been on it now.. going on 3 months. I didn't get my period last month(the 2nd month) and got extremely nervous( took a pregnancy test and it came out neg.). I'll be finishing this month's pack in a week so I'm expecting my period. Nobody told me about this either. I had to read the packet to find out. It says if you miss 2 in a row to take a pregnancy test.

  • Just did a search on "loestrin" and found this question. I'm finishing my 3rd month now, taking my last pill tonight and my period hasn't come yet! I took a pregnancy test yesterday and it was negative. Glad to know I'm not the only one!
