Product details

The dose of estrogen in Loestrin Fe 1/20 is nicely mid-range when compared to others on the market, making it perfect for those just starting on birth control. After all, too much estrogen can result in side effects, but too little can cause spotting or breakthrough bleeding. If you experience any problems, switching to another dosage is a snap. Plus, the daily dose of iron (even when taking the inactive pills) is something every woman can use. Just like other birth control pills, Loestrin Fe 1/20 does come with potential risks. It should not be taken if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or if you have a family history of blood clots.

Loestrin Fe 1/20 uses a combination of the two main hormones used in birth control pills — estrogen and progestin. These hormones cause your body to think it’s pregnant already, helping to prevent an actual pregnancy. The “Fe” in the name stands for iron. During your period, blood loss can sap your body of iron, possibly leading to anemia and other health problems. Loestrin Fe 1/20 can help. Our team at Nurx can prescribe Loestrin Fe 1/20 at special request, or can offer the generic equivalent Microgestin Fe 1/20 for as low as $0 with insurance or as little as $15 without insurance.
