Does Keflex(Cephalexin) affect Loestrin 24 Fe birth controls?
I'm looking for experiences here please.
Asked by Mayme Peffers 6 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 Leslee Blacio 6 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 Neely Jasmer 6 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 America Rydzewski 6 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 Felicidad Timms 6 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 Twana Clements 6 months ago.

Asked by Virgie Vaka 6 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 Suzette Piccinone 6 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 Vaughn Ellman 6 months ago.

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 Isiah Morge 6 months ago.
Help with understanding bith control pill?
I'm use to taking Loestrin 24 Fe. But recently I switched to Lo Loestrin. I don't get these pills lol . Whats the purpose of the white pills , there's only two. And only two brown pills. I started my period on the white pill. Do I stop with the brown? This brand is so confusing lol
Asked by Lilla Macklin 6 months ago.
Actually, in this case the white pills aren't sugar pills. With Lo Loestrin Fe, there are 24 round blue pills, 2 hexagonal white pills, and 2 round brown pills in the pill pack. The 24 blue pills contain progestin (norethindrone acetate) and estrogen (ethinyl estradiol) and are active pills. The 2 white pills are also active pills, but contain only estrogen (ethinyl estradiol). The 2 brown pills on the other hand are your inactive/placebo pills (or "sugar pills"), containing no active hormones, but these pills contain iron. The purpose of the 2 white pills can be a little confusing to those that don't understand the pharmacokinetics of the pill--how it works. Basically, because Lo Loestrin Fe is such a low-dose estrogen pill, this is how the dosage of estrogen can be kept so low without it effecting its contraceptive purposes. Most combination pills (which Lo Loestrin Fe is) contain 21 active pills consisting of both progestin and estrogen, and then there is usually a 7-day break of hormones (the inactive/placebo pills). With Lo Loestrin Fe, there are 24 pills consisting of both estrogen and progestin, and 2 pills consisting of estrogen only, for a total of 26 pills containing estrogen, before there is a 2-day break. This helps keep the estrogen levels low but consistent until the 2-day break where you would begin taking the brown pills. There are only 2 inactive/placebo pills, rather than the standard 7 in other birth control pills, to reduce the number of days spent bleeding per month. If you were to look at your pill pack or check out the Lo Loestrin Fe website, it says that Lo Loestrin Fe Provides: "The lowest daily dose of estrogen available in any birth control pill" and "Few total bleeding days per month, lasting less than 4 days, on average" Bleeding shouldn't start until the brown pills, but it's not uncommon that you started bleeding while taking the white pills since you just started taking them. Because you've switched to pills that work a little differently and are a different dose, give yourself a couple months for your body to adjust to this change. The Loestrin 24 Fe that you were taking consisted of 24 white pills containing both progestin and estrogen, but the estrogen in these pills is higher. Then you would start taking your 4 brown pills, and this is when bleeding would usually start, right? With Lo Loestrin Fe you should start bleeding on or around the brown pills also, but it can take a few months for your body to adjust to the change, and it may work a little different for you with this pill since there are only 2 brown pills. Many women may find that they don't have periods at all, because the break in hormones is so short. With my pills (Necon 1/35), I don't start bleeding until my third inactive pill. So I hope that helps you understand your pill a little better. If not, please feel free to contact me if you have any other questions. Answered by Felicitas Northup 6 months ago.
The white pills are sugar pills and the brown pills are the birth control pills. Sugar pills get you to start your period and the brown pills keep you from getting pregnant, has the necessary hormones that are considered the birth control pills. Answered by Brock Whiton 6 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.
