I originally started out taking Loestrin Fe 24 about 4 years ago and enjoyed everything about it. Since then I have had several types due to the cost. I am now back to Loestrin, but the Lo Loestrin and as of this point I like it. I had a two day period to start with and that was great. No where near the amount of bloating either, normally whale like symptoms there. The only negative I have ... Show Full Comment

I have been off the pill for two years and decided to get back on for birth control reasons. I wanted a low hormone pill that would not cause any significant change to my mood or my body.

I'm on my third pack of Lo Loestrin Fe and can say that I have no real complaints.
