If I take 2 lo loestrin fe pills a day. Will this stop my heavy bleeding? Once it stop do I go back to taking one pill a day?
Bleeding and iron: You should see a gynecologist to find out why you have your heavy bleeding. Iron will replace the iron you are losing in your red blood cells lost in your bleeding. See a gyn to see if you have a hormonal imbalance, or bleeding from fibroids. Iron will have no effect on the cause of your bleeding nor will it stop it. ...Read more

12 loestrin 24 fe + Plan B after missing one. First placebo yesterday. Unprotected sex yesterday for about a min with no ejaculation. Risk? Plan b?

I've been taking lo loestrin fe for ten days now never missed one pill. Had unprotected sex but did not ejaculate in me. Should i be worried?
Yes . . .: Despite taking oral birth control pill, you still need to worry about sexually transmitted diseases/infections. Since you took 10 days' worth of pills w/o missing any, it's unlikely that you'll get pregnant. Remember that even if he doesn't ejaculate inside you, there's enough sperm in pre-ejaculate to get you pregnant if you weren't on pill. But pill doesn't prevent stds which is why condom is ne. ...Read more
I'm on Lo Loestrin Fe but the condom broke. He did not ejaculate with broken condom, he put a new one on. Should i be worried about being pregnant?
Is it safe to switch from one birth control (lo loestrin fe) to beyaz, (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol and levomefolate) then back to lo? I'd start my new pack tomorrow.
Shouldn't: If the composition of both is exactly the same, it might be possible; since it's not, your cycles may be irregular for a few months & u may not be fully protected & would have to use a back-up contraceptive method. Discuss with your gyn or pcp why u want to switch back & forth. ...Read more
Antibiotic/bcp: Some antibiotics can diminish the effective estrogen content of the low dose oral bcp's, but not very much. If the estrogen in Loestrin is diminished, you would start spotting or having "breakthrough bleeding". It is unlikely for you to become pregnant therefore, and remember, during the "inactive pills" there are seven days without estrogen, so it is unlikely that augmentin will interfere. ...Read more

3-6 weeks: Ask your doctor even before your delivery. Depending on your health and risk factors, you can restart the pill in 3-6 weeks after delivery. I hope that you are planning to breast feed--it's the healthiest thing for your baby and easiest for you. That will also determine when you can restart, and which pills are safest. ...Read more
