    I am halfway into my second pack and just recently have started feeling nausea all day every day and my breasts are VERY tender. I am not happy and starting to worry that I am pregnant I have taken three tests this week and all negative. My period only came for one day last month and even though my period is always irregular I am worried!

    I'm 14(my mother got me on the pill for more reasons than one, no need to ask, I didn't really care) and it's been about three weeks and a day since starting it. I haven't menstrated yet, (due in a week or two) and I've gotten mild nausea and very light cramping. Tell me if anyone under the age of eighteen has experienced any more side effects while using Lo Loestrin Fe?

    I've been taking this for 3 weeks now. The first week was very nauseating and I was very tired! I don't see a weight gain. I did spot yesterday though which was odd. I've been having an on and off migraine that's lasted the past two days, not sure if it's connected with the pills though. I'm not that moody, but sometimes I feel a little down.
