Microgestin Fe 1.5/30 Question
ugh, okay.... i am somewhat freaking out right now....
i have been taking microgestin fe for years now (more than 6 yrs). i am suppose to be on my period right now (should have started wed) but it hasn't come yet!!! i have taken a total of 3 pregnancy tests so far and they are all negative.... i take the pill the same time everyday. i have never missed my period since being on microgestin. there was one time about 2 months ago that it only lasted one day and it was barely anything at all.
some health background on me.... i also have rheumatoid arthritis (autoimmune disease). i take different medications for this such as mobic (anti-inflammatory), prednisone (steroid), and at times hydrocodone (pain killer). i have taken these meds for years and never had a problem with them interacting with my bc pill so i don't think that is the issue... but maybe my missed period has something to do with my autoimmune disease??
i have also been reading online that some women miss their periods on microgestin or they are really light. has anyone else here ever taken microgestin and not had a period?? could i still miss a period even if i have been taking this bc for years now or is that likely to happen within the first few months of taking a bc pill??
this is really stressing me out!!! i don't think i am pregnant (3 negative tests!!) and i don't feel pregnant or have any signs/symptoms of preganancy!!
sorry for the novel!!!
eta: i feel kind of dumb submitting this thread here but i am really stressed and can't call my doc until monday or even tues b/c of memorial day!!!
