Using Estrostep Fe when youre the iron pills do you need a back up method of birth control?
If you use the birthcontrol Estrostep FE properly, like take all of the active pills on time and such, when you get to the Iron pills do you need a back up method of birth control? I think the package says you don't, but I'm a bit paranoid, and was wondering about it.
Asked by Harriett Farson 4 months ago.
No. The purpose of those pills are to give you extra iron while you are on your cycle. They are mainly used to keep you taking pills on a 28 day cycle....active pills for 21 days and inactive for 7 days. It sounds like you are a very responsible young lady as long as you take a pill everyday at the same time there is no need for a back up method,( except for sti protection) hope this helps Answered by Harriett Demers 4 months ago.
I'm assuming you cannot take start manage capsules because of a response to the hormones used. Some females are touchy to progestin, particularly if they have got a historical past of melancholy, and that gets rid of plenty of start manage choices so much persons are conversant in. If that is the case, you can have got to avert part the strategies indexed already. The Patch, Depo shot, and the Mirena IUD all use hormones, as does the implant and the NuvaRing. That does not imply you would react precisely the equal because the Pill, however it does imply it is feasible. NON-hormonal ways of start manage comprise: diaphragm, cervical cap, feminine condoms, sponge, and the copper IUD. Answered by Janetta Sidor 4 months ago.
no you don't need a back up method of birth control when taking the iron pills provided you have been taking them correctly for at least one months time. Answered by Ramonita Kuser 4 months ago.
Birth Control help needed?

I started my first pack (ever) of Estrostep Fe pills on the 8th of November (that's when I started my period and I was told to take the first pill the first day of my period for that month). I started my period again on the 25th. It's very light, so I'm assuming it's breakthrough-bleeding? I'm pretty sure I'm still on it, although I don't need to wear a tampon or even a pad because it doesn't leave my body unless I go to the restroom for some reason, and that's when I have to put a tampon in, but even then, I don't bleed very much. I'm due to take my last 'active' pill of this pack today. My question is do I immediately started a new pack tomorrow? Or do I take the iron (brown) pills and finish them and then start a new pack? Answered by Beckie Bellott 4 months ago.
Estrostep Fe Dosing Basics Starting at the beginning of the pack, take one tablet daily at the same time each day. Each pack will last for 28 days (four weeks). After you finish one pack, immediately start a new one the next day. Do not let any days pass between packs, even if you are still having your period (this may take a little planning, as you will need a new pack on hand). The first 21 tablets contain the active ingredients. The last seven tablets do not contain any active ingredients. During this last week, your body gets a little break from the hormones, allowing you to have a period. Each pack of Estrostep Fe contains 28 pills. Make sure to take them in order. Once you finish a pack, start a new one right away. You will probably start your period sometime during the last seven days of each pack. Answered by Devin Lusher 4 months ago.

Has anybody taken Loestri24 Fe?. My Gyn put me on this pills and I feel Depressed, aprehensive anxious?
I feel like I am always on PMS, totally on edge, irritable as hell. Has anybody experienced similar side effects with this pill? Help
Asked by Carlene Lindstrom 4 months ago.
I'm 21, and I've been taking Estrostep for years, however, last time I went to the Gyno, she put me on Loestrin 24 and immediately I started getting horrible mood swings and crying all the time and kept getting these horrible depressing feelings...not to mention that I didn't get my period the first 4 months I was on it, which is strange, because my gyno said that I would get only about 2-3 days of bleeding, This pill scared the crap out of me so I switched back to my old medication and I've been fine ever since. Good luck and I hope this helps! Answered by Alma Beyda 4 months ago.
It is common to feel the side effects when you start taking birth control (either for the first time or when you switch brands). If it's seriously affecting your life, you should try switching. There are many others out there: Yasmin, Ortho-Tri-Cyclen Lo, and many more. EstroStep worked the best for me, but they phased that out and replaced it with the brand you're on. I'm on Ortho-Tri-Cyclen Lo right now. I don't have nearly as many side effects, but because it's such a low dose, if I miss 1 pill, I start my period. Keep switching until you find one that works for you. Have you considered trying NuvaRing? My doctor highly recommended it when I went with my sis yesterday to her appointment. I haven't tried it yet, but my doctor swears it's amazing. 1 common side effect you might get with all of the pills... decrease in sex drive. It's horrible. The good though: clear skin and lighter periods. Yasmin was the worst on my body. I've never been so sick before in my life. It was giving me severe stomach cramps for 3 months. I switched and immediately felt better. Answered by Sixta Kamin 4 months ago.

I'm 21 now, since I was 14 I've had irregular periods, my periods came every other month, sometimes every 3 months until I was 16. I went to a gyno & I was put on Provera for 10 days to bring on my period so I could start Estrostep (birth control pill). I took Estrostep for about 6 months, it regulated my cycle but it was too expensive, so I stopped taking it. My period became irregular again after that. From age 19-last October, I've only had brown discharge & no actual period until Oct 29th. I had my actual heavy period for 7 days, a normal period. Then 3 weeks later, I had sex with my boyfriend but condom broke, so the next morning I bought Plan B One Step. Took that. Then a few days later, I got my period again. Lasted a full 7 days. I get weird mood swings, I'm starting to get hair growth on my face/chest/lower back and stomach, my face is looking a little different then it used to, I can't tell why, I'm shedding a lot more then I used too, I find strands of my hair all over my clothes all the time, it's definitely thinning. I have no clue whats going on with me, and I want to go see a doctor but I need some kind of idea of what this could be, so I could maybe give a hand of what this could be because I hear horror stories all the time of wrong diagnosis and all that. Any advice will be appreciated, thank you =) Answered by Edwin Cother 4 months ago.
It doesn't sound like Plan B One Step agreed with you. Taking hormones can do all kinds of weird things to your body. Talk to your doctor about switching to something else. Answered by Jeremy Michon 4 months ago.

Yep, all side effects of the pill. If it really bothers you, talk to your doctor about switching brands. But, you still might experience these things on all brands. Answered by Myrtice Rouselle 4 months ago.

I am not sure that my answer will help you too much, but here it goes. I am now 24, but I was 15 when I started on Ortho Tri Cyclen. I was on that until I was 21. It controlled my acne SO well. When I turned 21 I had a helath problem (not related to the pill) and I had to go off the pill. I have not been on the pill since, so I have nothing to compare Ortho to, BUT it did control my crazy teen hormones and skin, sooooo, I would have to say it is REALLY good. Good luck to you!

Although I took my pill every day, I did not miss a dose (but I did not take it at the same time every night), I did have unprotected sex on Sep. 23rd. I was supposed to start yesterday. I have been having period-like cramping, lower back pain, nausea, and general PMS symptoms since last week. I am on other medications, metformin for insulin resistance(500 mg once daily) and hypothyroidism pills (25 mcg). I rarely ever cramp BEFORE my period starts, and it is worrying me. My question is, is yasmin notorious for making ladies who have taken it for as long as I have been miss their period completely but still have PMS symptoms? Any and all answers will be appreciated, but the most helpful and detailed one will recieve the best answer. Thank you in advance! Answered by Shon Galic 4 months ago.
I was on Yasmin and missed my period a lot. I also would start on day 6 of the "off" week. It is difficult to say if you are not pregnant. It normally takes a while to get pregnant when you come off of Yasmin. If you are late....take a test. In a week if you still haven't started take another test. Call you GYN to let her know what is up. Now when I was pregnant with my daughter, I did have PMS like symptoms. I had a dragging feeling instead of cramps. I really don't Yasmin too much but it works well with PMDD which I have. I take EstroStep now and a medication for PMDD. I have better cycles now. Answered by Warner Aloisi 4 months ago.
