You do not have to, but you will likely get your period right away - even if it has not been a month since your last period. If you wait until the end of the pack, your schedule will stay approximately the same. If you are experiencing side effects which you feel may be dangerous (severe headache, stomachache, or eye problems, major pin point leg pain or trouble breathing), stop right away. If you are considering stopping because you are unhappy with this brand and want to switch or want to become pregnant, consider talking to your doctor about your plans before you stop. It may be easier to transition to a new pill if you stay on this one for the rest of the pack, and if you are considering becoming pregnant, your doctor may recommend that you "prepare" for a month or two before you try for a baby (such as take folate, make sure you are eating healthier/exercising, getting off any other medications that may not be good for a pregnancy). I hope this was helpful!
The answer is on your pack of birth control pills. LoEstrin comes in different strengths, and so your question cannot be answered without further information. For instance, there is LoEstrin 1/20 and LoEstrin 1.5/30. Contact your health care provider or pharmacist for more advice.
birth control pills are the safest method. i would recommend talking to her doctor about choosing the brand. im currently taking loestrin 24 because it is one of fewbirth controlpills that do not cause weightgain.
I have been taking Lipofuze for 3 days, and i I have been taking Loestrin for about a year or two. I only take birth control to make my periods regular (I am not sexually active). On the third day of Lipofuze I had some spotting (which is about a week before my scheduled period)
Birth control pills like LoEstrin are prescribed for a myriad of reasons, including control of irregular bleeding or excess bleeding, hormonal support, hormonal regulation, control of endometriosis, reduction in painful periods, and others.
If you are taking Loesterin FE and you've not had your period yet, you may consider going to the doctor depending on how long it has been. They may recommend a short break from the birth control.
You should use a back up method of birth control, like condoms or abstinence from vaginal sex, for the first 7 days of the first cycle.

There are many different brands of birth control and their generic forms as well. Some of the most well known brand names in birth control are: LoEstrin, Yasmin, Seasonale, Lybrel, Mircette, Trivora, and Zovia.
If he is taking female birth control pills forget him. They contain hormones and he is not taking them for birth control.
Nothing, Taking birth control is her choice
I was put on loestrin to try to get rid of ovarian cysts before trying to conceive. I have been on loestrin for 3 months continuously(no placebo) and just got the O.K. from my doctor that the cysts are gone and I can stop the pill. How long does it usually take to start a period again?
Can birth control be ineffective while taking metronidazole?
I have been on birth control for 7yrs, and i stopped taking it the end of September. But when i stopped taking it i didn't finish the pack. I am trying to get pregnant. I am concerned that i cant get pregnant and that i should have finished the pack first. I am concerned that i might not be able to get pregnant because i took birth control for 7yrs.
First, Necon and LoEstrin are brand names, and don't indicate the name of the pill. Second, there aren't many good studies comparing effectiveness of one pill against another. Interesting, isn't it, that the commercials for pills talk about other issues rather than pregnancy prevention!
It will probably finish its course.
For me personally, after I started using Loestrin 24Fe my acne subsided a little bit. But don't use birth control just to control acne, because you'd be messing up your body for a stupid reason.
THE BEST DAY TO START TAKING BIRTH CONTROL IS MONDAY..!!!
You should continue taking the birth control pill as scheduled regardless of bleeding.
If you were on the shot but you switched to taking birth control pills, but you do not take the birth control pills anymore, you have a high chance of pregnancy if you have been having unprotected intercourse. All the active hormones from the birth control will have little or no effect after 3 days of not taking birth control.
Taking the birth control pill lowers the risk of pregnancy. Not taking the birth control pill does not lower the risk of pregnancy. You are more likely to get pregnant when you are not taking the birth control pill.
Birth control pills do not increase the risk of birth defects in babies conceived by women who are or were taking them.
If you're taking steroids, I wouldn't bother taking birth control, steroids can make you sterile.
Yes, taking multiple birth control pills can cause spotting.
