How to get Lo Loestrin Fe online in Canada with Maple.

First, choose your symptoms

Select your symptoms within the Maple app so the doctor can evaluate your symptoms and condition. Enter as much information as possible so that the doctor can make a thorough assessment.

If you don’t have employer / insurer coverage, fees may apply since many of our services aren’t covered by provincial health plans. This is often because of our use of secure messaging and a national network of doctors and nurse practitioners.

Payment may be required, and will include the prescriptions for Lo Loestrin Fe if the doctor deems it necessary.

Next, you'll hear from the doctor

Once you’ve entered your symptoms, a doctor or nurse practitioner will review your case. If they’re able to help, your visit will start; if they can’t help, you’ll be notified before your consultation begins and you won’t be charged. You’re only charged if you speak with a Maple doctor.

Most often, you’ll speak to your doctor or nurse practitioner over text, though they may request audio or video chat if it’ll help with your diagnosis.

Get your medication

You'll get a prescription right on Maple, so you can send it to any pharmacy for pickup, or you can have it shipped with free delivery.

In some cases, a prescription won’t be recommended by the doctor. They will let you know if this is the case. Doctors may also not be able to prescribe some medications in certain provinces or regions.

Note: Maple is not a pharmaceutical manufacturer, nor are we an online pharmacy. This means you'll need to buy the medication from the pharmacy itself once you have your prescription.

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.

Additionally, some users may experience breast lumps, mental/mood changes, unusual changes in vaginal bleeding, dark urine, severe stomach/abdominal pain, or yellowing of the eyes/skin. If any of these severe side effects occur, it is important to speak to a doctor as soon as possible.

How do I stop taking Lo Loestrin Fe birth control?

An individual may choose to stop taking Lo Loestrin Fe whenever they wish. When they stop taking this medication, the individual will be able to get pregnant.
