Despite the fact that the Pill underwent its 50th birthday not long ago, the pharmaceutical industry continues to develop new versions that promise to be safer, lower dose and have less side effects while remaining highly effective.
The perfect Pill would work 100% of the time with no risks and no side effects of any kind. Wouldn’t that be great! We may not be there yet, but we have moved one step closer with the release of Lo Loestrin Fe.
This is the first and only Birth Control Pill on the market to have 50% less estrogen than commonly prescribed low dose Pills. Low dose pills have been available for years, and typically they have 20 micrograms of estrogen (20 mcg.), but the new Lo Loestrin Fe has only 10 mcg.
This lower dosage leads to less side effects than ever before, but with the same 98% effectiveness shared by all other birth control pills. For more information, click here to go to their web site.
