I am on loloestrin FE...
I am on loloestrin FE. I missed a period this month which is typical for me on this pill. However, I have a question about pregnancy tests. The last time I had sex was May 26. I am wondering if a pregnancy test would have given me an obvious (not faint) positive by now. My tests have been negative up until this point but I have an irrational fear that there is a faint line that maybe I am just not seeing. I know that sounds crazy but I just figured that I would ask. Also, would it be safe for me to come off of the pill now since I haven't been sexually active since that date?

Yes, a urine pregnancy test at this point should be fairly accurate. However, if you are noticing pregnancy symptoms (i.e. bloating, weight gain, morning sickness, etc) you should seek blood testing for pregnancy to be absolutely sure. If you are asymptomatic, you can trust the urine pregnancy test at this point.

Please let me know if you have any additional thoughts, or questions.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
