Lo Loestrin Fe is a hormone-based estrogen and progestin combination pill with the lowest dose of estrogen on the market (10 micrograms). This means fewer estrogen-related side effects like bloating, weight gain, mood swings and nausea. It is also a great choice for anyone with a known estrogen sensitivity. Lo Loestrin Fe is best for women under 35 who don’t smoke, and is not recommended for women with a history of blood clots or breast cancer. Remember, oral contraceptive pills do not protect against STIs (sexually transmitted infections) like herpes and chlamydia—only condoms do that!
