Missed period on the pill--should I worry?
Hi everyone. I am on Loestrin Fe 24, and in my 4th month. Last month, I got my period early (about a week before I started the placebo pills) and this month, it hasn't come at all. So, it's been 45 days since my last period. I have not been sexually active, so I KNOW I'm not pregnant, and I am wondering when I should be concerned enough to call my doctor.
I NEVER miss periods, never did on Yasmin or Nuvaring, and if anything, I am prone to shorter-than-usual cycles (i.e., approximately 24 days instead of the average 28) and my periods are usually still heavy, even on birth control... They have been a BIT lighter than usual on Loestrin, but still not light. So this is very unusual. I don't remember ever skipping a period, on any type of birth control. How concerned should I be, at this point? I suffer from PMDD, so I can't ever remembering WANTING my period to come, but I am worried enough at this point that I do!
Thanks for your help!
