I used to take loestrin 21 1/20 and never had any issues with it. I moved and lost insurance for awhile. My new dr put me on Lo Loestrin FE. Today is my 1st day taking it. I am strictly using it to try to regulate my period and calm down my PMS symptoms. The loestrin 21 1/20 used to do the trick for me. The dr office said they're basically the same. Can anyone ease my mind on this that actually used both of these pills?

From what I could gather, there actually are differences shown between the two medications.

Loestrin 1/20 reportedly contains the active ingredients Norethindrone acetate + Ethinyl estradiol

Loestrin FE on the other hand contains Norethindrone acetate + Ethinyl estradiol + Ferrous fumarate (a form of Iron)

I'm not sure how the addition of Iron might effect the overall efficacy of your medication, but it may be worth while getting a second or third opinion from other medical professionals, who understand the chemistry and pharmacokinetics of these types of drugs.

You can learn more about this drug on the page for Lo Loestrin Fe Details

I hope this helps!
