I've had a puzzling couple of months.
I started a new birth control pill in May. I hadn't been on the pill for years, but needed to start Loestrin 24 to correct my anemia. The whole reason my gyno chose that pill is because it shortens your period down to 3 days or less, and makes it very light.
Well, it couldn't be that simple. I stopped having a period after the first couple of months. Which is hilarious, because I get all the symptoms-- cramping, moodiness, cravings, general unpleasantness. It's funky.
I haven't had sex in like..... years. So that leaves FI and I half-laughing every month when I get period symptoms and no bleeding. "You're not pregnant, right?" "Right."
I know there's no medical need to have a period, but this really bewilders me. I looked for info online and found that TONS of ladies on Loestrin have the same deal. I have a checkup with my gyno soon, so no biggie. I'm sure it's totally normal. It's just that I was prepared to have a period every 28 days (except when pregnant) until I'm like 50. So.............. it's weird not to.
Just thought I'd share my puzzlement with you and see if anyone else has crazy contraception-related stories to share.
