Junel Fe 1.5/30


Junel Fe 1.5/30 is a hormonal birth control pill that contains slightly higher doses of estrogen and progestin, which may help to lighten periods and reduce period-related cramping. The hormones also prevent pregnancy by inhibiting the release of an egg during menstrual cycles and thickening vaginal fluid to help prevent sperm from reaching an egg. Junel Fe 1.5/30 is not a good option for women over 35 who smoke or women with history of blood clots or breast cancer. And keep in mind that oral contraceptive pills do not protect against STIs like HIV, gonorrhea, and chlamydia—only condoms do that!
