More information about Loestrin
Lo Loestrin Fe is an FDA-approved combined oral contraceptive pill, also known as “the pill.” It uses the synthetic hormones norethindrone acetate and ethinyl estradiol to effectively prevent pregnancy.
Combined contraceptive pills also offer additional benefits, like lighter periods and milder premenstrual symptoms.
You can order Lo Loestrin Fe online from SpeedyHealth.
Lo Loestrin Fe prevents conception in three different ways. It suppresses ovulation, thickens the mucus in the cervix so that sperm cannot enter the womb, and thins the womb lining so that there is less of a chance for a fertilized egg to be able to implant into the womb and grow.
Contraceptive pills do not offer protection against STIs, so you should still practice safe sex. This involves regularly getting tested, communicating about your STI status with sexual partners, and using barrier methods, like condoms.
Lo Loestrin Fe contains 24 active blue pills, followed by 2 active white pills and 2 inactive brown pills. These should be taken in the order that they are listed on the pack.
Take one pill at the same time each day. If you start on the first day of your period (the day you begin bleeding), you will be protected against pregnancy immediately. If you start later, you should use an additional method of birth control, such as a condom, as a back-up method for the first seven days. Do not skip any pills.
Side effects are a possibility with all medications, although many are mild or may subside as you continue with the medication.
The most commonly reported side effects include:
Talk to your doctor if you experience any side effects that are persistent or severe.
Combined contraceptive pills increase your risk of developing a blood clot, although they are still very rare. Symptoms include cramping, pain and warmth in the limbs, breathlessness, chest pain, and coughing up blood. If you experience any of these symptoms, or if you experience other serious side effects, such as an allergic reaction, you should seek immediate medical assistance.
