1 reviews

Loestrin Fe 1/20 birth control pills contain a low dose of estrogen alongside an androgenic progestin. It's a safe place to start with birth control due to a low blood clot risk but the low oestrogen may mean some spotting. It comes in packs of 28 tablets with 21 containing hormones and the remaining 7 placebo pills containing a boost of iron. You may have a withdrawal bleed during the placebo pill week.
