Frequently Asked Questions
What is Lo Loestrin Fe and how does it work?
Lo Loestrin Fe is a combination hormone medication, and is primarily used to prevent pregnancy. It does so by preventing the release of an egg during the menstrual cycle, making the vaginal fluid thicker to help prevent sperm from reaching an egg, and changing the lining of the uterus to prevent attachment of a fertilized egg.
Besides preventing pregnancy, these pills may make your periods more regular, decrease blood loss and painful periods, decrease the risk of ovarian cysts, and also help treat acne. Lo Loestrin Fe will not prevent the spread of STIs/STDs. There is currently no generic version sold in Canada.
How do you use Lo Loestrin Fe?
Lo Loestrin Fe is taken by mouth once a day as directed by a doctor, with or without food. It is available as a tablet and comes in a pack containing 26 tablets with active medication and 2 reminder tablets with iron. The active tablets should be taken once daily before starting on the iron tablets, which should be taken once daily for the two remaining days.
Take the first tablet in the pack on the first Sunday following the beginning of your menstrual period or on the first day of your period. Use an additional form of non-hormonal birth control for the first 7 days of using this medication to prevent pregnancy. Take the tablets in the order they appear in the package at the same time everyday.
