What are some of your side effects while on lo ovral (ethinyl estradiol and norgestrel) vs ovral (ethinyl estradiol and norgestrel)?

Can be the same: Lo-ovral (ethinyl estradiol and norgestrel) has 35 mcg estrogen, while ovral (ethinyl estradiol and norgestrel) has 50 mcg estrogen, both have the same type of estrogen and progesterone.

Almost all of mine are using a 25 or 20 or 10 mcg estrogen pill. ...Read more

Pretty simple...: Once a woman is married, settled down, and has decided to start a family with her husband (these are all major decisions), she can stop taking birth control pills. If she was fine before the pills, she should begin ovulating in some weeks. She can track her periods to see when she is most fertile each month. Meanwhile, she can take prenatal vitamins and be sure enjoy sex at least every 3 days. ...Read more
