Nauseated, out of breath, high fever, stressed, cramps, loss of appetite, sickness, have bleeding. On loestrin. Reason?

Hi, I am 29 years old and have been on Loestrin since October last year. I do forget to take my pills sometimes and so I double up the next day. Six days ago I woke up nauseous and it got progressively worse throughout the day. I was terribly exhausted and couldn't really do anything without feeling out of breath and faint. My temperature became high and then leveled out. I never threw up and my bathroom habits remained normal. I still, today, have no appetite, feel tension and cramping on and off in my belly and my energy level is better but not normal. I should mention that I am a fitness trainer and I NEVER get sick and I always have energy. I haven't worked out in 6 days. I'm afraid to exercise, as if I'm going to pull something in my belly. That's how weird it feels. I took a pregnancy test 5 days ago and it was negative, but I have no idea what kind of timing I have because, due to the Loestrin, I don't actually bleed every month. Perhaps its too early to test? Anyway, please help.

Hi there ~

I understand your concerns and taking oral contraceptive pills can throw your regular menstrual cycles for a spin and alter them beyond belief in some cases. However, they are also notorious for side effects. I believe that the side effects that you are having is from the loestrin that you are having. You might want to check for pregnancy if your due date for the next menstrual period is delayed beyond a week and repeat it in another week if you continue to have no periods. I hope you visit with a gynecologist for alternative ways of contraception if things do not work. If you are pregnant however, congratulations!

Take care and have a lovely day!
