Effective to take several Loestrin (1.5mg ethinyl estradiol, 30mcg Norethindrone acetate) instead of Plan B emergency contraceptive? How many pills?

Effective to take several Loestrin (1.5mg ethinyl estradiol, 30mcg Norethindrone acetate) instead of Plan B emergency contraceptive? How many pills?

EC: Although there are at least a dozen types of birth control pills that can be dosed as an emergency contraceptive, I can find no source that includes Loestrin among them. Perhaps someone else has a regimen, but I recommend getting Plan B or the like to ensure you get the maximum benefit. ...Read more

Can I skip the last week of my estrostep (ethinyl estradiol and norethindrone)?

Can I skip the last week of my estrostep (ethinyl estradiol and norethindrone)?

Yes and no: The last week of the pack of pills contains iron pills. They are there to help prevent iron deficiency anemia and to keep you on a regular schedule. You do not have to take them but you must then remember to skip a whole week before you start a new pack. Estrostep (ethinyl estradiol and norethindrone) is not a pill that you can do continuously to avoid a period, unlike some pills where that is ok. ...Read more

I just started on the generic form of estrostep (ethinyl estradiol and norethindrone) fe ?

I just started on the generic form of estrostep (ethinyl estradiol and norethindrone) fe ?

Probably OK: Generic versions of medications are usually fine, but they are not identical. The fda allows for a modest degree of difference in "bioequivalence". Essentially, a generic medication is allowed to be sold if it is between 80% - 125% of the brand name medication. Most generic medications are fine for most people, but there is always some percentage of patients for whom they are different. ...Read more

Is it okay to take estrostep (ethinyl estradiol and norethindrone) fe with minocycline?

Is it okay to take estrostep (ethinyl estradiol and norethindrone) fe with minocycline?

BCP & antibiotic: I am not clear if you are taking the bcp for pregnancy prevention or acne tx. Antibiotics can reduce bcp effectiveness in some women. You might need to use condoms to further decrease chance of pregnancy and need additional/alternative form of bcp while using minocycline. Tell your dr. Everything you take including vitamins and herbs. ...Read more

On trivora 28 (ethinyl estradiol and norethindrone) for a month and some days forgot = unprotected sex.?

On trivora 28 (ethinyl estradiol and norethindrone) for a month and some days forgot  = unprotected sex.?

Yes: Oral contraceptives only work if you take them. You need to take them at about the same time every day (morning or evening) so that they trick your brain into thinking you already are pregnant, and do not ovulate. If you miss a pill, take it as soon as you realize, but if you miss more than two you should use some other form of birth control, such as condoms. ...Read more

Will GNC womens ultra nutrition active multivitamin interfere with my bc trivora 28 (ethinyl estradiol and norethindrone)?

Will GNC womens ultra nutrition active multivitamin interfere with my bc trivora 28 (ethinyl estradiol and norethindrone)?

Multivitamins: I couldn't find exactly what you've written in gnc's products, to check on ingredients. The closest thing i saw was: gnc women's ultra mega® active. This one contains a few herbs (panax ginseng, gingko, green tea, etc) in addition to the vitamins, but nothing that should conflict with your birth control pills. http://tinyurl.com/6no53xd. ...Read more

Start a new pack of brevicon (ethinyl estradiol and norethindrone). No period?

Start a new pack of brevicon (ethinyl estradiol and norethindrone). No period?

Check a PG test: Assuming that is negative, many pills do not build up enough tissue in the endometrium to cause a period and the way to show that is a pelvic ultrasound that I do in my patients to prove there are no problems. If that is normal you can either continue with the pills, as you do not have to have a period on the pills( many women like that) or switch to a higher dose pill to get periods. ...Read more

Start a new pill called brevicon (ethinyl estradiol and norethindrone). No period?

Probably normal: Presuming your not pregnant, it is not uncommon for some pills to suppress uterine lining proliferation so much that there is no significant sloughing at the end of the cycle and, therefor, no period. "pill amenorrhea" as it is called, is normal and should not cause alarm. ...Read more
