Hi, I just began using Lo Loesterin Fe birth control about a week and a half ago, I was wondering how I am suppose to know if it is working, like what are some signs? Also, I had taken Plan B three times before taking birth control and was also wondering if Lo Loesterin is not effective enough for me bc of the low dosage?
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Birth control pills usually start giving you protection and are effective after about 3-4 weeks of regular use. Continue to use the pills as instructed. Your periods and cycles will get regularized after sometime. Avoid further use of emergency contraceptives as they can cause disruption your regular cycles due to the high hormonal content in them.
