Does Keflex(Cephalexin) affect Loestrin 24 Fe birth controls?
I'm looking for experiences here please.
Asked by Alvera Ducrepin 5 months ago.
You didn't mention how old you are. I have been taking Loestrin 1/20 for MANY years now without issues. I am on the low dose because I am am 46 years old. I never take the last three pills (21 vs 24 pack) as it makes no sense to me to have my period for the Fri - Sun instead of Tues - Thurs. the 24 pack was a new invention to get a new patent.... Talk to your doctor at any rate but maybe you need a low dose pill or maybe you can't tolerate any pills at all. Answered by Bronwyn Alex 5 months ago.

Hope this can help you? Dosage Forms and Strengths Lo Loestrin Fe (norethindrone acetate and ethinyl estradiol tablets, ethinyl estradiol tablets and ferrous fumarate tablets) is available in blister packs. Each blister pack (28 tablets) contains in the following order: 24 blue, round (active) tablets imprinted with “WC” on one side and “421” on the other and each containing 1 mg norethindrone acetate and 10 mcg ethinyl estradiol. 2 white, hexagonal (active) tablets imprinted with “WC” on one side and “422” on the other and each containing 10 mcg ethinyl estradiol. 2 brown, round (non-hormonal placebo) tablets imprinted with “WC” on one side and “624” on the other and each containing 75 mg ferrous fumarate. The ferrous fumarate tablets do not serve any therapeutic purpose. Also, your period could have come early because your body is still getting used to the new birth control pill. I wouldn't worry too much, just give yourself some time to adjust. Answered by Mary Kinker 5 months ago.
I'd go with the IUD if I had been you. I had the Mirena IUD for three years, and have recently had it removed to try for youngster number 2. The IUD was painless to get in, I had it put in at my 6 week check up after my daughter used to be born. It is reliable to make use of if you're nursing your newborn, and it lasts for five years!!! Plus you do not ought to worry about tablets or something else. The one think I did not recognize once I acquired the Mirena is that's can take awhile in your menstral cycles to return to traditional after having the IUD removed. I had mine removed in December 2008, and previously couple months my cycles have in the end returned to natural, rather then that, I highly propose the IUD! Answered by Lucia Stell 5 months ago.

It generally takes at least 1 full week for the pills to get into your system and take full effect. You are protected somewhat from the time you start taking the pill but it's a little risky until you've at least waited a week. If you want to have sex on the 22nd, you'd probably be safe but it's best and recommended to use backup protection, such as a condom or spermicide. The Today sponge is really good, too. That was my preferred method until I got on the pill. Answered by Ebony Pinn 5 months ago.

I started taking combination birth control (norethindrone acetate and ethinyl estradiol tablets) on Sunday May 17, and I had finished my first packet yesterday on Saturday June 6th. But, Now I'm confused on whether or not to keep taking the birth control today or to just wait for my period to come up and re-take the birth control again on the Sunday after my period ends. Do I just open up a new pack and take it like usual, or do I stop and wait for my period to end? Answered by Venessa Riebel 5 months ago.
The #1 thing to remember while you're on birth control is to just keep taking it. Keep taking it, in order, every day. No matter what happens. No matter what kind of bleeding you have, whether it's early, late, or doesn't happen at all. Just keep taking the pills, every day, in order. That's it. Answered by Dortha Stefanowicz 5 months ago.
They should have came with instructions . Some pills have a week's worth of placebo pills, some don';t. If you check the website for the company it might tell yu for sure. But it sounds like they were designed just for those days when you ovulate and then you skip taking them for a week if no placebol pills were included. Answered by Ernesto Lukasiewicz 5 months ago.

If you want to, you can skip the placebo pills in the pack, and start the fourth week with a new pack of pills to guarantee you won't be on your period during your honeymoon. It is okay to alter your period cycle from time to time, especially in times like these. You'll just skip your period for the month, and when you finish your 2nd pack, you'll begin as usual. Good luck! Answered by Antwan Markoff 5 months ago.
start administration pills frequently have the comparable contents, as in the comparable style of hormones used to regulate your cycle. Switching won't reason a great style of issues except the hormones or drugs used are different.

Asked by Leonard Tucay 5 months ago.
The two ingredients namely Norethindrone Acetate & Ethinyl Estradiol in Estrostep fe are as per USP standards whereas the iron part i.e.fe is in the form of ferrous fumarrate,and not conforming to USP.Please check the pack of the generic version for any change,may be the iron is in different form which is not suitable for your stomach and is causing the pain.The side effects of this combination includes stomach cramps.If you have used the branded version earlier without getting stomach pain, then switch back to that even midway through the course without giving any break.

Both of those pills contain an oestrogen and progestin. They would have the same effects. Tell him to set you up candles and give you a massage. That would do way more for your sex drive... Answered by Jen Frost 5 months ago.
I need a new birth control pill?
I actually don't want to continue taking Loestrin. I'm going to talk to my gynocologist about this at my next appointment. However, I want people's opinion on the NAME of the birth control that they have taken and what the side effects are. Thanks!

I have been taking Loestrin 24e for just under a year. I have had a coupon that allowed me to get it for $24 per refill for 12 months. Since the 12 month period is over, I need a new, affordable birth control pill. I don't want to gain weight and I don't want to spend more than I'm spending now. I don't want an injection or a device installed in my vagina - I'm specifically looking for recommendations for a pill. Does anyone have first hand experience with a birth control pill with few side effects, no weight gain and is inexpensive? Answered by Ronni Pfanstiel 5 months ago.
If Loestrin 24e has been working for you then there is a way to continue the same exact medication but at the generic price. Loestrin 24e is Ethinyl estradiol 0.02 mg and norethindrone acetate 1 mg (28s) [24 white tablets] and ferrous fumarate 75 mg [4 brown tablets] Loestrin Fe 1/20 (generics - Microgestin™ Fe 1/20, Junel Fe 1/20) are Ethinyl estradiol 0.02 mg and norethindrone acetate 1 mg (28s) [21 white tablets] and ferrous fumarate 75 mg [7 brown tablets] The advantage of the 24e is supposed to be shorter lighter periods. But if you are disciplined then you can get a new prescription but for the Loestrin Fe 1/20 and buy an extra pack (without insurance its like $25 at most). Take the pack as normal but when you hit day 22, use a white tablet from the spare pack for days 22, 23, and 24... and on days 25 - 28 take the brown tablets from the regular pack..
