I've had some pretty inconvenient and abundant breakthrough bleeding on Loestrin off and on. Usually, it's near the middle of the pack, it lasts for a few days, and then I still get my withdrawal bleed. There have been several times after I had breakthrough bleeding that my withdrawal was particularly light.
This month, I had cramping/breakthrough bleeding from about July 6th or 7th through July 10th. It was pretty much like a period, and was so heavy for a few days that I needed to use a tampon. This whole episode was a deciding factor in my switching brands. The bleeding calmed down and I continued to take my pills as usual.
However, yesterday was my last day of Loestrin placebos and I have had very little bleeding. I did bleed Sunday afternoon/evening into Monday morning, like enough blood to see it on the toilet paper/in my urine. Then, after that, I didn't see anything more than some brown tinges on a tampon/toilet paper.
Basically, is this ok? I've never completely missed a period on Loestrin before. I'm guessing I might just not have had any uterine lining left, but I DO NOT want to be pregnant. I did not miss a pill/never took one any later than like 15 minutes late. There were only a couple of times I had sex without an additional method of birth control. Help?
