- How Is Wymzya Fe Used?
Wymzya Fe is a combination birth control pill that works in multiple ways to make your body think that it is pregnant. The combination of hormones prevents ovulation, thins your uterine lining making it difficult for implantation, and thickens your cervical mucus so it is difficult for sperm to reach and fertilize an egg if one is released. It is best to keep your pills stored at room temperature and to be effective, you only need to take one pill a day for 21 days. You can choose to take the inactive pills for seven days if it helps to keep you on track.
- How Can You Get Wymzya Fe?
Wymzya Fe is a generic version of Femcon Fe, making it a more affordable option for women seeking an effective method for preventing pregnancy. As a generic drug, it is covered by most insurance companies and is widely available at most pharmacies. With insurance, you will pay $0 out of pocket, and without insurance, the cost is $20 per pack. Wymzya Fe does require a prescription to obtain, which can be provided by most health care professionals if it is considered a good option for you.
- What Precautions Should You Take When Using Wymzya Fe?
Before you begin taking Wymzya Fe, you should discuss with your health care provider any allergic reactions you may have to any of the ingredients in the pill, including ethinyl estradiol, norethindrone, or ferrous fumarate. You should also tell them of any sensitivities you have to either estrogen, progestin, or iron.
You should also discuss with your health care provider any issues in your medical history, especially blood clots, clotting disorders, hypertension, cancer, diabetes, abnormal breast exams, gall bladder issues, heart problems, migraines, or swelling conditions. You should also discuss any previous complications during pregnancy or when using other birth control methods, such as kidney or liver problems, thyroid problems, or unexplained bleeding.
- What Are the Possible Side Effects of Taking Wymzya Fe?
Some women may experience side effects when taking Wymzya Fe, though most are well-tolerated and severe side effects tend only to occur when you have an underlying condition such as heart disease or a clotting disorder. The most common and mild side effects that are associated with Wymzya Fe include headache, nausea, vomiting, tender breasts, weight change, and swelling in the ankles or feet. These side effects are often caused by the influx of hormones and usually subside or lessen as your body becomes used to the new hormone dose.
Some women may also experience spotting or bleeding in between periods or may even miss periods. This typically will subside after the first few months. If you miss more than one period or continue to have these side effects, you should contact your health care provider.
There are some rare but serious side effects that may be experienced when taking the pill, such as hypertension, breast lumps, severe fluctuations in moods, severe abdominal pain, dark urine, skin yellowing, or severe vaginal bleeding. Other major side effects require emergency attention, such as blood clots, pulmonary embolism, and heart attack.
Since these can be life-threatening conditions, you should report to your health care provider any side effects such as slurred speech, pain in the chest or arms, accelerated heart rate, worsening leg pain or swelling, or difficulty breathing. For severe symptoms, you should go to the emergency room and immediately let them know all of the medications that you are on. Signs of an allergic reaction are extremely rare but include itching, rash, swelling of the face or tongue, dizziness, and trouble breathing.
- Can Wymzya Fe Interact Negatively With Other Medications?
There are some drug interactions that can lead to serious side effects or lower the effectiveness of the pill. Some of the drugs that Wymzya Fe can negatively interact with include aromatase and combination products used in the treatment of hepatitis C.
Other drugs may reduce the effectiveness of the pill by reducing the hormones that are in your body. When this occurs, it can increase your risk for a possible pregnancy. Some drugs that can lower the effectiveness of Wymzya Fe include modafinil, griseofulvin, St. John's wort, barbiturates, carbamazepine, and drugs used to treat HIV. If you start any new medications or herbal remedies, you should discuss them with your health care provider to see if they will negatively affect the function of your pill.

For maximum effectiveness, you should take the pill once a day at as close to the same time each day as possible. If you experience nausea when taking the pill, take it with food to alleviate symptoms.
- What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?
If you miss one dose, the pill can still be effective but the effectiveness will be reduced. Take the next dose as soon as you remember. If you have missed more than one dose, then the effectiveness may be compromised and you should use a backup birth control method until you start your next pack.
- What Happens If I Become Pregnant When Taking Wymzya Fe?
If you become pregnant while taking Wymzya Fe, you should stop taking it immediately as the medication can pass to your unborn baby. Wymzya Fe is not recommended when breastfeeding, as studies have shown that it passes through breast milk and also can significantly decrease your milk supply. Combination pills are not recommended to prevent pregnancy during breastfeeding.
