What is Larin 24 FE Birth Control Pills?

Larin 24 Fe 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 Larin 24 Fe

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

Most women find that taking Larin 24 Fe before bedtime or with your largest meal of the day helps reduce nausea and other side effects. With Larin 24 Fe, after taking 24 days of active pills, you’ll switch to 4 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 Larin 24 Fe the 4 last pills of the pack have ferrous fumarate to prevent anemia from blood loss with monthly bleeds.

Larin 24 Fe Dosage

Larin 24 Fe has two main active ingredients: norethindrone and Ethinyl estradiol. Each white tablet (24 tablets per pack) has 1 mg norethindrone + 20 mcgs of Ethinyl estradiol (EE). The white tablets are followed by 4 tablets of 75 mg ferrous sulfate.

Benefits of Larin 24 Fe

  • 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 here.
  • Reduce the risk of ovarian cysts (as in polycystic ovarian syndrome [PCOS])

Larin 24 Fe Side Effects

The risks are very low, but some women have experienced unwanted side effects when taking Larin 24 Fe. 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.
