I just started on the Generic form of Estrostep fe ?
and I'm really painful stomach aches(side effects) and I don't know what to use?
Asked by Ali Gosse 3 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.

If you're concerned about it, call your doctor. I've been on Estrostep FE and the generic equivalent Tilia FE for 11 years and I've never had leg cramps. Leg cramps are a symptom of a blood clot which can occur because of taking any form/brand of birth control pill. To be safe, call your doctor. Answered by Veronique Beissel 3 months ago.
Is anyone taking the birth-control pill name Estrostep Fe? Do you gain weight from them.?
Asked by Hilaria Wombles 3 months ago.
I'm not familiar with Estrostep Fe, but I was on a variety of birth controls pills & while I never gained weight, I had a near fatal pulmonary embolism & minor infarct. Doctors advised NEVER to take any other hormones. AFTER discontinuing BC pills, I gained 30 pounds that took a year & a half to lose. Post mIenopausal, I refused HRT for years. Then--for some reasons of temporary insanity!--& encouraged by my OBGYN, I used premarin for three years. It made me feel wonderful, however, when going to ER with an acute ankle sprain, another blood clot was discovered JUST IN TIME & I must now be on a blood thinner for the rest of my life. (Serious stuff.) After premarin, I gained 25 pounds. Sweetie, if I were you, I'd be much more concerned about more serious effects than weight gain--which happened to me ONLY AFTER DISCONTINUING. I've now lost 11 of the 25, with serious health diet & much walking. I hope this helps! Answered by Gail Pinal 3 months ago.
You gain an average of 10 pounds from birth control, no matter what brand it is. Increase exercise and decrease calories! Answered by Amiee Srey 3 months ago.

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 Julian Maj 3 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 Basil Blanks 3 months ago.
If you have breakthrough bleeding that is cause for a call to our doctor to see if they want ot adjust your dosage. Breakthrough bleeding is usually indicates the need for a slight increase in hormone levels Answered by Cleo Joern 3 months ago.
Is it okay to stop loestrin 24 in the middle of the pack and start taking Estrostep Fe because period is long?
I was taking loestrin 24 but my doc gave me Estrostep Fe because while on loestrin 24 my period stay on too long?
Asked by Fran Brezenski 3 months ago.
You can start taking the new pill pack as long as you didn't miss any days of the previous pill pack and you're not skipping any days in between the two medications (ie start the Estrostep the day after you take the loestrin). Answered by Kira Formica 3 months ago.

I don't take that particular brand I take Loestrin FE and mine dosnt usually last that long maybe a 3 days at best. Sometimes I spot for a couple of days and then some months I don't have one at all. Love the stuff!!! Answered by Stephane Kaminaka 3 months ago.
it particularly is as solid and useful as the different start administration pill obtainable. women are transforming into to be pregnant on each sort of start administration there is, it particularly is why no start administration (aside from in simple terms no longer having intercourse) is one hundred% useful. yet in maximum cases that's by way of person errors (no longer taking the pill generally, no longer using a returned-up in the process the 1st month or once you're additionally taking drugs that interferes with the start administration which incorporate antibiotics, and so on).

Birth control pill question? [estrostep FE]?
Birth control pill question? [estrostep FE]? how strong & good is the pill i am on? has any of u gotten pregnant on this pill?
Asked by Melba Boehning 3 months ago.
Its 99.9% effective Answered by Walter Mcmenomy 3 months ago.
It's as strong and effective as any other birth control pill available. Women have gotten pregnant on every form of birth control there is, that's why no birth control (aside from just not having sex) is 100% effective. But in most cases it is due to user error (not taking the pill regularly, not using a back-up during the first month or when you are also taking medication that interferes with the birth control such as antibiotics, etc). Answered by Mai Degraaf 3 months ago.
Any variety of beginning administration has the opportunity of failure as no longer even sterilization is one hundred% valuable via ability issues, in spite of the certainty that while you're taking your pills on the comparable time each and every day and not in any respect fail to realize this, your danger of unintended being pregnant is nearly a million-2%, tops. you may desire to continuously use a backup approach on suited of that, like condoms (additionally clever to keep away from sexually transmitted infections too!). stay secure.

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 Reina Mertes 3 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 Alison Leaird 3 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 Laurice Roup 3 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 Mammie Musselwhite 3 months ago.
