So I've been on lo loestrin for a little over a year and since I've been on it I bleed twice a month the second week into my pills is usually when I experiance what mimics my period and the end of the pack I will sometimes have some spotting.. I've spoke to doc about it he says its ok and its because the hormone dose is so low and my body doesn't do well with higher doses.

So this month Ive taken my pills as I should and the second week I was very crampy and I've been feeling like I can never get enough sleep, and my nipples and breasts are sooooo sore and I never got my "period". Honestly my body "feels" pregnant as I already have 2 children I know. I took a hpt yesterday and it said negative I'm in my 3rd week of the pack now..

Just curious if anyone here has gotten pregnant on the pill or birth control and can relate to my symptoms..

Yea I'm trying to get them to come out.. Although if I am pregnant this would in deed be a birth control failure.

I was put on Loestrin FE after I had stopped nursing my son. He was just over one year old at the time. I did get pregnant within the first month of using it. Unfortunately, I lost that baby very early on.

I am one of those people who always remembers to take the pill...but in that instance, I can't help but wonder if I did something wrong. Maybe I did miss a pill or maybe I didn't wait long enough to have sex without added protection, I don't know.

I stayed on that pill for about six months or so. Eventually I switched to Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo, because the Loestrin FE made me have strange periods, lots of spotting, and cramps.

Good luck.

This but it's only the lower socioeconomic bracket and then I think it's 98%!
I did get preggo on BC BUT I was married and was on antibiotics and not using a backup because I was uneducated about BC & antibiotics.

Im sure you'll find every single one of those "1%-ers" here."

Usually when a female gets "pregnant on BC" it's because she stopped taking it in secret like my sil....
