i just finished my 2nd month of loestrin 1/20. i started my period today but its weird. it's more like just spotting. i only see blood if i wipe after urinating. this same thing happened last month only there was a little bit more bleeding last month. im starting to worry. i usually have pretty normal-heavy bleeding. can this indicate pregnancy? or this a normal side effect and am i just paranoid? =P thanks..
Really low dose pills can have that effect. Some women will stop getting them altogether (really small %). If it starts to become bothersome, you can consider switching to a pill with a higher estrogen. (necon 1/35/ortho novum, or estrostep have the same amount of the same progestin, with a higher dose of estrogen)
You shouldn't be worried about pregnancy unless you screwed up taking the pills this month.
