Thanks for taking the time to read this. I was using a diaphragm for a while and decided to start taking the pill. As per instructions from my gyno, I started Loloestrin Fe on the first day of my period (Wednesday, March 27th). On March 31st I missed a pill but made up for it by taking my missed pill and April 1st's pill together. Other than that I have been taking the pill consistently everyday (except not perfectly with timing, but within at least three hours...which I know isn't ideal but I haven't been on the pill in so long and have had a hard time getting used to taking it every day at the same time during a busy work day). The pill's instructions say that I am protected from the day I started since I took it on the first day of my period. So, my bf and I have not used any backup protection. Since it is still the first month taking Loloestrin Fe and it is low dose, I have not let him ejaculate inside of me at all, he has pulled out far before ejaculation occurred. I've almost been on this pill for two weeks now and I am wanting to stop taking it (relationship has now ended and I feel as though this pill is making me more depressed and extremely tired than I have ever felt in my life). However, now I am freaking out a little bit. Have I been too laid back about not using back up protection? I know I need to consult my doctor on this issue tomorrow, but do you think I will be able to just discontinue taking it? I really don't want to take it for even one more day because now I have no need to and I hate the way it makes me feel. I'm nervous I was being irresponsible about not using backup since I haven't been taking the pills perfectly in the past (almost) two weeks. Any input on this? Am I at risk for pregnancy since I wasn't being perfect with pill or using backup?
Thanks for any answers, it's greatly appreciated!
