I have been on loestrin24 for about 8 months. I have lately been experiencing very frequent urination and cramps not due to my period. I have never missed a pill. Should I been worried or are these normal side effects?

Welcome to ehealthforum.
Frequent urination ad cramps could indicate either a urine infection or possibility of pregnancy. There are instances of women getting pregnant while being on birth control pills.
Visit your gynecologist/healthcare provider and get an examination, urine test along with tests done to rule out pregnancy. See what could be the cause for your symptoms. Get stated on treatment as indicated by the examination and test results.
Take care.
