Loestrin, and advice on side effects.

AdvantagesWell it works for me

DisadvantagesMight not work for you!!

"...of these I've been taking Loestrin 20 which I've found to be a highly effective method of contraception with no side effects whatseoever. A far cry from the first year using the pill as a contraceptive method! Without wishing to scare any prospective pill-takers, my first pill (Microgynon) gave me every side effect in the book! I experienced weight gain, headaches, nausea (every day at 6pm) and I cried and cried and cried every day for several ..." Read review

So you dont want a baby then..........

AdvantagesQuite easy to use

DisadvantagesNot good if you're forgetful

"...me when I was on Loestrin 20 - this was due to the dosage APPARENTLY and when the doctor moved me to the 30 I have been great. Other side effects include headaches - these range from mildly bearable to a full on Migraine. Now again, I have found with this pill this has not happened to me - it did with Marvelon though! :-( Also some people have been known to have suffered blood clots with the pill. To be honest I dont really know much about this ..." Read review

Longing for a pain free life?

AdvantagesKnowing when my period will arrive! Stops you from becoming pregnant!

DisadvantagesPossibly risks such as Thrombosis, breast cancer and a long list of possible side effects!

"...one I've tried out is Loestrin 30. What is in the pack? Contained in the box are 3 packs of pills each containing 21 tiny green tablets. The pack has got the days of the week written on the top of the foil in casing the tablet, so you can keep track if you've taken one for that day, or not. You take a tablet roughly the same time every day for 21 days and then have a 7 day break for your 'Bleed' ( This is what it's called as your not supposed ..." Read review

Just remember to take it. . .

AdvantagesNo weight gain!!

DisadvantagesMoods, little bit of "spotting"

"I first started taking Loestren 20 a week or so after my 16th birthday. I decided, at the legal age, I should go on the pill incase any "accidents" came up and I needed protection. I suppose, for a 16 year old to think like that, I must have been quite strange and presumptuous, but I didn't care too much and off I trotted to the doctors with my mom. He said he would prescribe me the best one for my age-range, and so I was given Loestren 20. I was ..." Read review

Loestrin... great if you want no sex drive!

AdvantagesLight periods, no side effects

Disadvantagesno sex drive, no periods can be a bit scary!

"Loestrin 20.... Each Loestrin 20 tablet contains 1mg of norethisterone and 20micrograms of ethinyloestradiol. No, I don't understand it either. Like all other combined oral contraceptive pills, Loestrin 20 stops you from getting pregnant by thickening the cervical mucus, making it harder for sperm to travel to the womb. It also stops the ovaries from releasing an egg, and makes the womb lining so thin that it would be unlikely to accept a fertilised ..." Read review
