Loestrin Fe 1/20

I have been taking Loestrin Fe 1/20 for 1 year. Has anyone ever had side effects after being on it for 10 months plus? My doctor is saying he doesn't think side effects would just happen after being on it for so long, but I think it can. After starting this pill after my period, by day 2 I am dizzy. This month the dizziness is lasting longer. I am thinking about stopping the pill. I have been to the doctor for a checkup and everything else seems ok.

Re: Loestrin Fe 1/20

I didnt think anyone else was on this pill. My doctor put me on it about 8 months ago, from being on another pill for 15 years...his thoughts were that this was a lower estrogen and he wanted me to take it continuously- not taking a break every month, but every 3 months.
I loved the idea.
On this pill, after 6 months, i gained weight. (I have never weighed over 105 lbs and now weigh about 115), My skin did clear up, however I started getting really strange periods when I did get them. I experience breakthru bleeding, never had that in my life- and my breasts hurt during the week prior to when I should get my period! I hate this pill.
Im having a tubal in that will be the end of it, at least for now...however, im looking into estriol supplements because I also have MS, which is also rather newly diagnosed. Sometimes I wonder if its all MS stuff, but truthfully, most of this started when I went on this pill...
good luck..
