Ethinyl Estradiol Overview

Ethinylestradiol (EE), or ethinyl estradiol, or ethinyloestradiol, is an estrogen medication which is used widely in birth control pills in combination with progestins.[10] It is also occasionally used as a component of menopausal hormone therapy for the treatment of menopausal symptoms in combination with progestins.[10] In the past, EE was widely used alone for various indications such as the treatment of gynecological disorders and prostate cancer, but this is no longer the case.

famynor and ovral

Hi. I am normally using ovral, but when I went and fetched my new months pills they give me Famynor. I don't know Famynor. They told me it's the same as ovral. Is it true? ## is Famynor and Ovral in the same generic class? Is it the same products just different trade names? ## Hello Channa, I hope you are doing well.

Can i ask if Alesse is available in the Philippines? ## I'm not sure what's available for you there, but have you tried asking your doctor, or a local pharmacist/chemist? Alesse is a combined oral contraceptive, it contains Ethinyl Estradiol and Levonorgestrel, so you can also just try asking for one that contains the same ingredients, since it would work the same. ## thanks for your reply, but currently i'm working abroad and the doctor prescribed alesse for me, then i noticed that on my schedule vacation to my home country(philippines) i'll be short of my pills, so i try to check if it's available in my home country or else, better visit to the doctor again. ## I'm on Alesse 28 for hormone control due to PCOS.

any chance to get pregnant when taking crimson tablet

My period was not regular. So as per dr's advice i am taking crimson 35tab. Is there any chance to get pregnant when taking crimson tab? ## Hi viji, Based on my research, the medication Krimson contains cyproterone acetate + ethinyl estradiol. To my knowledge, Krimson prevents ovulation and thickens the cervical mucus which means you most likely won't be able to conceive while taking this medication. It is often used to treat PCOD (Polycystic ovary syndrome), severe acne, and hursuitism in women... as well as androgenetic alopecia in some women. I recommend that you speak with your doctor if you're trying to conceive, he/she should be able to prescribe something to help you ovulate and become pregnant. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Ethinyl-Estradiol Deta...

lo loestrin blue white

My doctor told me to only take the Lo Loestrin BLUE pills. However, I read that BOTH the blue and the white contain 10 mcg ethinyl estradiol. I have been throwing away the white and brown pills each month, and immediately starting on a new pack of blue pills. Now, I'm wondering if I should also be taking the WHITE ones. If they have the same ingredients and same strength, I don't want to just waste them. ## Update: I found out that although there are equal amounts of ethinyl estradiol in the blue and white pills, there is another, more important, ingredient in the blue pills. So, it's BLUE PILLS ONLY, just as the doctor ordered. ## Thanks for update Matilda. I was just going to add for other readers here that each brand of contraceptive tends to have different instructions f...
