Junel Fe 24 is a combined oral contraceptive pill (OCP) 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
Simply take one pill every day, at the same time each day. Most women find that taking Junel Fe 24 before bedtime or with your largest meal of the day helps reduce nausea and other side effects. After taking 24 days of active pills, you’ll switch to four inactive pills. These are inactive pills with no hormones that are there to get you in the habit of taking your pill every day. These four tablets have ferrous fumarate to prevent anemia from blood loss with monthly bleeds.
Junel Fe 24 birth control pills have two main ingredients: 1mg of norethindrone and 20 mcgs of Ethinyl estradiol in each of the 24 first tablets, plus 4 tablets of 75 mg ferrous sulfate.
The risks are very low, but some women have experienced side effects when taking Junel Fe 24. Minor ones include breast tenderness, headaches, nausea, and slightly elevated blood pressure or blood sugar levels. Positive side effects: 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.

Junel Fe 24 is as effective as any other birth control pill. Birth control pills are 99.7% effective if perfectly used (in a research study) and 93% effective in “regular use” (when real people use it and mess up every now and then).
If you choose to pay out-of-pocket, Junel Fe 24 is pretty affordable since it is a generic brand ($46 per pack). You can save money as well by choosing any other Junel Fe24 generics, such as Tarina Fe 24, Gildess FE 24, Aurovela FE 24, Blisovi Fe 24, Larin FE 24 for as low as $21 per pack. Generics have the SAME active ingredients and dosage as the name brand. Watch our video explaining generics vs. brand birth control pills.
Junel Fe 24 uses a blend of two hormones, estrogen and progestin, to make your body think it’s pregnant so a real pregnancy won’t happen. This pill does so 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.
Junel Fe 24 is a combined oral contraceptive pill.
Theoretically, it’s effective immediately (if you start on your period) vs. other times, you need to use backup for 7 days. To be absolutely safe we recommend backup or abstain for the first month. For more information, click here.
