    How to Use Minastrin 24 FE

    How to Use Minastrin 24 FE

    Minastrin 24 Fe is super easy to use. Simply take one pill (chewable) every day, at the same time each day. Many women find that taking Minastrin 24 Fe before bedtime or just after their evening meal reduces nausea and other side effects. After taking 21 days of active pills, you’ll switch to seven sugar pills (placebo pills). These are inactive pills with no hormones that are there to keep you in the habit of taking your pill every day and, in this medication, have 75 mg ferrous fumarate.

    Minastrin 24 FE Dosage

    Minastrin 24 FE Dosage

    Minastrin 24 Fe uses a combination of two hormones estrogen (Ethinyl Estradiol, 20 mcg) and progestin (Norethindrone 1 mg) to make your body think it’s pregnant so a real pregnancy won’t happen.

    Minastrin 24 FE Side Effects

    Minastrin 24 FE Side Effects

    The risks are very low, but some women have experienced unwanted side effects when taking Melodetta 24 FE. Minor ones include breast tenderness, headaches, nausea, swollen feet or ankles, and slightly elevated blood pressure or blood sugar levels. Positive side effects are also a possibility, too — reduced acne, fewer mood swings, and other perks are fairly common.

    The chances of serious side effects are extremely unlikely, but some cases have been documented. Symptoms include heart disease, blood clotting, shortness of breath, migraines, vision problems, slurred speech, confusion, and fainting. Those who wear contacts or are nearsighted may notice vision problems as well.

    These may sound scary, but remember — they’re very rare.

    What is Minastrin 24 FE?

    Minastrin 24 Fe is a combination 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. Minastrin 24 Fe is also prescribed to: treat acne, reduce the risk of ovarian cysts (as in polycystic ovarian syndrome [PCOS]), treat painful or heavy periods, and more.

    Dr. Yen, our CEO/Co-Founder and young adult medicine specialist does NOT recommend women under the age of 30 take a “low dose” birth control pill. You need at least 30mcg of estrogen (Ethinyl estradiol) to protect your bones. 

    If you have high blood pressure or take blood pressure medications, this medication is NOT for you. Instead, Pandia Health Medical group’s doctors recommend progestin-only pill (POPs)IUD with hormone (Mirena, Liletta, Kyleena, Skyla), implant (nexplanon), the birth control shot (depo-provera), or condoms and spermicide. Pandia Health’s doctors are always happy to help you choose the right birth control for you.

     

    Frequently Asked Questions
