Lo Loestrin Fe Review
| Sierra
I'm 17 and I started lo lestrin fe for the sole purpose of regulating ky period because I would have one every 2 or 3 months. Well it regulated it alright. I had very painful periods at least twice a month, and every other one was extremely heavy. I didn't notice much problems with weight gain, but I seemed to get dizzy every now and then. Bleh.

Lo Loestrin Fe Review
| Maryam
I switched to this from yasmin. I took yasmin for 7 years and was very happy with it. I am almost done with my second month and I have gained 5 pounds that I cant lose. I am moody and angry most of the time... I had non stop headache for 10 days when I first started. I had no idea a pill can have so many side effects... I really want to go back to Yasmin but I am SO confused since I read and hear all these stories.... Can someone please give me some advice??? OH and did I mention that it killed my sex drive??

Lo Loestrin Fe Review
| jamie
I have had nothing but issues since my doctor switched me to this BCP 4 months ago from Tri Sprintec. It does not control my endometriosis, which is the primary reason I am on BCP. I have acne as a grown adult, weight gain and swelling in the hands and feet. I had none of these issues on Tri, plus it perfectly controlled my endo. Not happy with this BCP at all!
