Loestrin Fe 1/20

Loestrin Fe 1/20 is a popular combination birth control pill that uses estrogen and progestin to regulate periods, lighten periods, treat acne and prevent pregnancy. It is a reliable choice for women who want to try the pill because it has a mid-range dose of estrogen. Since too much estrogen can cause side effects (weight gain, mood swings—no thank you!) and too little estrogen can cause breakthrough bleeding, this product strikes a good balance. Plus, it includes a daily dose of iron to help prevent anemia. Like other combination pills, this product poses risks to those who smoke and are over 35 or have a history of blood clots or breast cancer. Remember, oral contraceptive pills do not protect against STIs (sexually transmitted infections)—only condoms do that!
