What is Aurovela Fe 1/20 Birth Control Pills?

Aurovela Fe 1/20 is a combined oral contraceptive pill (OCP, birth control medication, birth control pills) that prevents pregnancy by preventing the release of an egg (ovulation), and thickening the cervical mucus, blocking sperm from getting into the uterus and getting to the egg. Read More

How to Use Aurovela Fe 1/20

Simply take one pill every day, at the same time each day.

Most women find that taking Aurovela Fe 1/20 before bedtime or with your largest meal of the day helps reduce nausea and other side effects. With Aurovela Fe 1/20, after taking 21 days of active pills, you’ll switch to seven inactive pills. These are inactive pills with no hormones that are there to get you in the habit of taking your pill every day.

With the Fe the 7 pills have ferrous fumarate to prevent anemia from blood loss with monthly bleeds.

Aurovela Fe 1/20 Dosage

Aurovela Fe 1/20 has two main active ingredients: norethindrone and ethinyl estradiol. Each white tablet (21 tablets per pack) has 1 mg norethindrone + 20 mcgs of ethinyl estradiol (EE). The white tablets are followed by 7 tablets of 75 mg ferrous sulfate.

Benefits of Aurovela Fe 1/20

  • Periods get lighter. If you are usually a 7 day person, it goes down to like 5 days. If you use 5 pads/tampons a day, it goes down to 3.
  • You can use it to make #PeriodsOptional. Just skip the last week of pills and go straight into the next pack. See our CEO/Founder’s talk at the bottom of this page.
  • Improves acne.
  • Reduce the risk of ovarian cysts (as in polycystic ovarian syndrome [PCOS]), treat painful or heavy periods and more.

Aurovela Fe 1/20 Side Effects

The risks are very low, but some women have experienced unwanted side effects when taking Aurovela Fe 1/20. Minor ones include breast tenderness, headaches, nausea, and slightly elevated blood pressure or blood sugar levels.

Positive side effects are also a possibility, too — reduced acne, lighter bleeds, and fewer mood swings are fairly common. The chances of serious side effects are extremely unlikely, but some cases have been documented, such as blood clots in the head (a severe new headache, causing double vision, or stroke), blood clots in the chest causing severe shortness of breath, blood clots in the abdomen (causing abdominal pain), blood clots in the leg causing leg swelling and pain.

These may sound scary, but remember — they’re very rare. The risk is about 3-6 women out of 10,000 per year using the medication might get a blood clot.

Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT SHOULD I AVOID WHILE TAKING AUROVELA FE 1/20?

As with any new prescription, you should go over anything you’re already taking with your doctor or Pandia Health Care Advisor before starting on Aurovela Fe 1/20. This includes recreational drugs, over-the-counter meds, and even herbal supplements. Even something that seems relatively harmless such as St. John’s wort can cause Aurovela Fe 1/20 to be less effective at preventing pregnancy. There are certain meds you should absolutely bring up. These are aromatase inhibitors, cancer, HIV, seizure, and chronic hepatitis C medications.

DOES AUROVELA FE 1/20 STOP YOUR PERIOD?

No, Aurovela Fe 1/20 birth control does not stop your periods. There are 28 tablets on each packet and you will have a bleed on the last 7 days of each pack (aka placebo week).
