About Loestrin FE 1/20

What is Loestrin FE 1/20?

The Loestrin FE 1/20 drug is an oral contraceptive consisting of 21 active tablets containing 1mg of norethindrone (progestin) and 0.02mg of ethinyl estradiol (estrogen). The packet also contains 7 ferrous fumarate tablets, provided in order to help maintain the 28-day regimen but serving no therapeutic purpose. The primary contraceptive mechanism is the prevention of ovulation; however, thickening of the cervical mucus and the endometrium also occur, preventing sperm from entering the uterus and lessening the likelihood of implantation.

How do I take Loestrin FE 1/20?

Loestrin FE 1/20 is an oral contraceptive pill that is taken daily, with water and without regard food. Each packet contains 28 pills, 21 of which are active; the remaining 7 are inactive, serving as reminder pills to help maintain the dosing schedule. The first active pill should be taken on the first Sunday after menstruation begins (if menstruation begins on a Sunday, start then). Take an active pill daily for 21 consecutive days, then an inactive pill for each of the next 7. Once the 28-day cycle is completed, begin a new packet. For maximum protection against pregnancy, Loestrin FE 1/20 must be taken on a daily basis. Follow your doctors dosing instructions exactly; do not crush or chew the pills.

What if I forget to take a dose of Loestrin FE 1/20?

If you forget to take an active Loestrin FE 1/20 pill, refer to the instructions that accompanied your prescription for complete information on what to do. Use an alternative method of contraception for 7 to 10 days after missing a dose. If you miss 2 or more active pills in any week, consult your doctor.

What happens if I overdose on Loestrin FE 1/20?

If an overdose of Loestrin FE 1/20 is suspected, contact Poison Control at 1-800-222-1222. If the individual has stopped breathing or lost consciousness, call Emergency Services at 911. Signs of an overdose may include vaginal bleeding, severe nausea, or vomiting.
