What is Loestrin?

Loestrin (Lo Loestrin Fe) is an effective contraceptive medication that can be taken to successfully prevent pregnancy. Loestrin contains the active ingredients ethinylestradiol and norethisterone and is taken once a day for 21 days (followed by a 7-day break) in the form of a Loestrin 20 (1mg / 20mcg) or Loestrin 30 (1.5mg / 30mcg) tablet.

This clinically proven birth control medication also regulates your period, relieves period pain and menstrual cramping shortens the length of long and painful periods.

How does Loestrin work?

Loestrin reduces the risk of pregnancy only if it is taken on a regular basis. The oestrogen and progesterone in the oral contraceptive prevent ovulation and adherence of the egg to the uterus, by making the cell lining unfavorable for implantation.

How to take Loestrin

Loestrin is taken once a day and at the same time every day. One can take the pills either in the morning or evening. The pills should be taken in the order as directed on the blister packet. It is important to not skip pills or alter the number of pills taken. If you develop nausea, it is best to take it with food.

Starting Loestrin

If you are starting on a hormonal contraceptive like Loestrin for the first time, you should follow these instructions:

  • Always follows the pills schedule on the blister packet.
  • You should start taking the pill at the beginning of your menstrual period. This way you will not need any extra form of contraception. However, if you start on any other day other than your period, then you will need a backup form of contraception for the first 7 days.
  • There are 21 active blue pills and 7 inactive brown pills in the packet. Each blue pill contains the same dose. Take the first blue pill and continue every day in a sequence until you reach the last brown pill on day 28. Then start all over again with a new blue pill from a new blister pack the very next day, irrespective of whether you have had your period. You should not skip anyway if you want complete protection against pregnancy.
  • During the last 7 days, the level of sex hormones will drop and you will develop withdrawal bleeding. You start the next packet after finishing the 7 days of inactive pills, even if you have mild spotty bleeding. The great thing about Loestrin is that the blister packet has a calender marked with days of the week so that you can remember to take the pill every day for 21 days, followed by 7 days off. You will be protected against pregnancy even during the last 7 days, as long as you have been taking the blue pills regularly.

What should I do if I miss any pills?

It is important to understand that if you miss any pill, this decreases the effectiveness of the oral contraceptive. If you miss a blue pill on any day and if you remember within hours, you can take it. However, if you miss a blue pill and it is close to the time of the second blue pill, you will need to take both pills on the same day. In this scenario, you will not need to use any type of extra contraception. However, if you miss a blue pill for two consecutive days or more, you should take two pills on the day you remember and two the following day. In this scenario, you will need to use some type of extra contraception for the next 7 days.

If you have missed more than 3 pills in one month, then it is best to start all over again with a new blister pack. This means you will have to use some type of contraception for the entire month until you have your period.

What if I miss my scheduled period when taking Loestrin?

Some women will miss their period while taking Loestrin. However, this is not a common occurrence and may only occur once. If you miss two or more periods in a row, you should tell the healthcare provider because it is important to conduct a pregnancy test just to confirm if you are pregnant. If you develop any signs of pregnancy such as a breast tenderness or morning sickness, you should stop taking Loestrin and see your healthcare provider.

What if I want to become pregnant?

You can stop taking Loestrin at any time if you wish to get pregnant.

Loestrin Side Effects

As with other prescription medications, there is always a chance that you will experience side effects when taking Loestrin tablets. These are usually only mild in nature, as Loestrin is recognised as a highly tolerable medication. The side effects associated with Loestrin tend to subside over time.

Some of the side effects of Loestrin include abdominal cramps, bloating, nausea, vomiting, headaches, migraines, nipple tenderness, breast enlargement, a change in weight, water retention, vaginal thrush (candidiasis), changes in menstrual bleeding or spotting, mood changes (e.g. depression or anxiety), a decreased libido, increased blood pressure, skin discolouration, acne, eye dryness, changes in liver function or gallstones.

These side effects do not occur in everyone and are most common when first starting the pill. Within a few months, the symptoms subside in most women. However, if they persist, you should speak to your healthcare provider.

Loestrin Precautions

Loestrin should be used with caution in the following women:

  • Age over 35 as there is an increased risk of blood clots
  • Who have a family member who has had a stroke, heart attack or a blood clot
  • Smokers
  • Who are obese
  • With type 2 diabetes
  • With untreated high blood pressure
  • With a history of heart problems including heart disease, heart attack or heart failure.
  • Who are not active
  • With a history depression, anxiety especially if this was caused by a medication in the past
  • With a history of headaches or migraines
  • With a personal or family history of elevated lipids like triglycerides and cholesterol

Who should not take Loestrin?

Loestrin should not be taken by the following:

  • Children less than 18 years old
  • Postmenopausal women
  • Women who are smokers because this increases the risk of developing blood clots including heart attack and stroke.
  • Women who are pregnant.
  • Loestrin should not be taken within 6 weeks after having delivered a baby.
  • Loestrin can pass into breast milk and is recommended that you not take the medication while breastfeeding. If you do plan to breastfeed, use some other form of contraception.
  • Women who have breast cancer or any other type of cancer that is sensitive to female sex hormones should not take Loestrin.
  • Women who have had liver mass, prior blood clots, and a family history of blood clots, stroke, or heart disease are not candidates for Loestrin.

Bleeding while taking Loestrin

When you take Loestrin, you will notice some spotty bleeding or unscheduled bleeding. This bleeding will be most common when you first start taking the pill and in some women, it may persist for about 9-12 months. If this unscheduled bleeding is heavy and lasts for several days, you should tell your healthcare provider.

What you should know about Loestrin

  • It does not protect you against all sexually transmitted infections including HIV. Other methods of contraception such as condoms must be used to prevent this from happening.
  • Some women may experience spotty or breakthrough bleeding when first starting out with Loestrin; in most cases, this is a transient event. However, if you do not have a menstrual period for 2 months, you should see your healthcare provider and ask for a pregnancy test before starting out on a new cycle of pills.
  • All women who take Loestrin are at a small risk for developing a blood clot in the leg. This risk is higher in women over the age of 35 and those who smoke. To reduce your risk of blood clot, remain active, do not smoke and maintain a healthy weight.
  • The risk of blood clot in the legs is also increased if you remain immobile after any accident or surgery. In such scenarios, make sure you wear compression stockings. If you need prolonged bed rest, then your surgeon will most likely stop the control pill until you have recovered. During this time period, you will need to use another form of contraception.
  • If you plan to travel long distance by air or car, there is also a risk of developing a blood clot. So take a break during the trip or walk every hour and make sure you are wearing compression stockings.
  • There is also a small risk of developing breast and/or cervical cancer. Thus, all women who take Loestrin must be followed up by their healthcare provider. One may need to have a pap smear and a thorough breast exam at each visit. You should discuss with your healthcare provider the risks and benefits of Loestrin.
  • If at any time you develop pain or swelling in your legs, cough, shortness of breath or chest pain while taking Loestrin, stop taking the medication and see your doctor.
  • If you develop yellow skin or eyes, itching or vague pain just underneath the right ribs, stop the pill and see your doctor.
