I've been taking Levora for about five months now, and i've taken the pill at the same time, everyday since I got my first pack. While i've been on the pack my withdrawl bleed during the placebo pills has been very regular. However, this month I have not gotten a withdrawl bleed at all, and tomorrow is the last placebo pill. I've taken two pregnancy tests and both have come out negative. Is it normal to not get a withdrawl bleed during placebo pills? Thanks!

There are factors than can inhibit the withdrawal bleed from occurring, like changes in exercise or weight loss. Since Levora is a combination pill, it's also not unlikely that the estrogen dosage has become too low for you.

Bodies don't work like machines, so yes, it's normal for our cycles to mess up once in a while. However, I suggest that you keep taking the pills as you would normally. If by next placebo week you still don't have a withdrawal bleed, and if it's definitely not pregnancy, then I'd visit the doctor to see if another type of pill would be good for you.
