Answered by William Ghantt 4 months ago.

I used Femcon for a while, and let me tell you seriously, its MUCH better to swallow a BC pill.. Femcon taste VERY chalky & minty! It really wasnt my thing! Now, i never used Femcon ALONE, i used it w/ an IUD to stop bleeding, because i had HORRIBLE time w/ the mirena iud, 2 times in a row, and for years! So i would NEVER recommend an IUD. However, I refused to use Femcon when i switched from my IUD back to the pill, because it is by the same maker as Ovcon (according to my OB/GYN) and i got pregnant on Ovcon. I am currently on Loestrin 24 and if you can swallow a pill, which mind you the birth control pill is teeny tiny, i love this pill, and would recommend this one to anyone! I have had no side effects, EXCEPT for an extremely light period, and have often skipped my period, or gotten it down to just spotting! ;-) Good Luck! Answered by Liz Northcote 4 months ago.


About birth control Femcon Fe ?
i wanted to knw has anybody ever took Femcon Fe to prevent cyst from coming again Asked by Rasheeda Oehlenschlage 4 months ago.

I have never taken Femcon Fe but generally most birth control pills out there are supposed to help with preventing ovarian cysts from forming. I took the pill Microgynon 20 (which is a low dose pill) to help prevent ovarian cysts from forming, but found after 6 months of use that I still had an ovarian cyst form on my ovary - my gyn said that this was very rare to happen. The reason for this is because with some low dose birth control pills, it does not completely suppress ovarian function (once again it is very rare). A larger dose of estrogen will more effectively suppress ovarian function, thus resulting in less chance of an ovarian cyst. This is because the pituitary produces follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), which stimulates your ovary, resulting in the maturation of an egg or eggs, or partial maturation, which results in a cyst. The signal to the pituitary to stop producing FSH is a high enough dose of estrogen. It fools the pituitary into thinking that your ovary produced a fertile egg, as fertile eggs release estrogen. After I was put on Microgynon 30 (a higher dose pill), I didn't experience any new ovarian cysts from forming until I stopped taking the pill in September last year and now have a small 2.9cm cyst. I would recommend that you talk to your doctor/gyn and to ask them to answer any questions that you may have. Good luck :) Answered by Micah Natcher 4 months ago.

Femcon Fe Question?
I just started on bc Femcon Just wondering if other people who take it like it? Asked by Geri Conaty 4 months ago.

I am taking Femcon Fe and I really like it a lot. It's the newer version of an old pill called Ovcon 35. The thing that's different about the Femcon vs the old Ovcon is that the tablets are new chewable which can be very helpful to those that have a hard time swallowing pills. I've been on the Femcon for about 6 months now and have been very pleased with it. Answered by Amado Addair 4 months ago.


What is the difference between YAZ and Femcon FE?
I am currently taking Femcon FE, but was thinking about switching to Yaz. I know that Yaz has 4 inactive pills as apposed to Femcon FE's 7 inactive pills. Does this mean I will have a shorter period? Also, I know the dosage is different. Yaz has 3 mg norethindrone/ 20 mcg ethynil estradiol where as Femcon has... Asked by Nadia Danco 4 months ago.

I am currently taking Femcon FE, but was thinking about switching to Yaz. I know that Yaz has 4 inactive pills as apposed to Femcon FE's 7 inactive pills. Does this mean I will have a shorter period? Also, I know the dosage is different. Yaz has 3 mg norethindrone/ 20 mcg ethynil estradiol where as Femcon has 0.4 norethindrone/ 35mcg ethynil estradiol. Why is there such a big gap in the levels of norethindrone and what does that mean? Any information is appreciated! I do have an annual appt with my gyno. but the appointment is not until March, and I was just really curious to get these answers! I will definitely double which with my doctor when during my appointment. Answered by Rene Nevin 4 months ago.

I took both Femcon FE first and then YAZ. The inactive pills are just iron pills for you to take during your period. I don't recall having a shorter period, so I don't think it really makes a difference, you'll still have a period the average length. I know that Femcon FE has more hormones in it than YAZ...that's why I switched to YAZ. I never really felt like there was a difference. If you still want more info on them, check out their websites or even call the gyno's office and speak to either the doc or a nurse. They'll be plenty of help. Good luck!

I have been on Femcon Fe twice (first time was when it was under the name Ovcon 35) and I really like it a lot. I use it to help with treating my endometriosis when I am on the pill (not on it right now due to being on other medication). I have had very few problems with it. If you have other questions for me please feel free to e-mail me off site any time. Please put "Femcon Fe" so that I will know what it's in regards to. Answered by Shizuko Molash 4 months ago.


Question about birth control (Femcon Fe or other)?
what are some side effects you have noticed while being on this pill? are they mild, moderate or severe? just wondering how they affect different people because i just started on them. Asked by Geraldine Lujano 4 months ago.

The only side effect that I noticed with the Femcon Fe is that my breasts continued to stay tender but I dealt with that by getting a larger sized bra. I really like the Femcon Fe and hope to go back on it again some day soon after finishing another treatment I'm on now for another female problem. As for the other side effects that can occur such as weight gain (which is mostly water weight caused by the hormones) yes some may gain weight but others may also lose weight. If you have other questions for me about my experiences with Femcon Fe please feel free to e-mail or IM me off site any time. Answered by Cyndy Beish 4 months ago.


Femcon contraceptive pill?
This is my first month taking femcon contraceptive, I got my period in the middle of my pill packet instead of on my 4week when i take the dummy pills... has this happened to anybody else?? And what can i do to make sure i get my period at the end instead of in the middle. Asked by Verona Kleinman 4 months ago.

From the Femcon Fe website: "What about spotting or bleeding between periods? Femcon Fe has a low incidence of spotting and/or bleeding. However, your body may need some time to adjust to the dose of hormones in the Pill, and therefore you may experience some spotting or bleeding between periods, usually only in the first 2 or 3 months of use. This does not mean the Pill is not working, so it is important that you continue to take them regularly. Taking Femcon Fe at the same time every day will help decrease the chance of spotting or bleeding. Also, this bleeding may be temporary and usually does not indicate any serious problem; however, if it occurs during more than 1 cycle or lasts for more than a few days, you should talk to your healthcare provider."

Does anyone use Femcon birth control or know anything about it?
I just started using Femcon and I just wanted to see what other people thought about it! Thanks! Asked by Nathanial Meltzner 4 months ago.

Femcon Fe, which contains the same hormones as standard oral contraceptives, offers a new option for women who don't like swallowing pills and want to take their birth control with them, according to Carl Reichel, president of drugmaker Warner Chilcott of Rockaway Introduced last September as Ovcon 35 Chewable, it is now dubbed Femcon Fe by Warner Chilcott, which markets the chewable made by Bristol Myers Squibb. The first site has comments from some users of the femcon birth control Answered by Kristofer Sheffield 4 months ago.
