Patient :I am taking LO Loestrin fe and I am almost done with my second pack of pills. I have never missed a pill and I take my pills roughly the same time every day. I had breakthrough bleeding for around a week beginning on Thursday of week two. Does this mean my pills are not strong enough to prevent pregnancy? What are my odds of getting pregnant?I know there is always a chance of pregnancy when you have sex, but are my chances increased?
