Tarina Fe 24 is a combined oral contraceptive pill (OCP) that works to prevent 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
It’s very easy to use!
Simply take one pill every day, at the same time each day. Many women find that taking Tarina 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.
If you do miss one active pill , take two pills as soon as you remember. Then, continue to take one active pill for the rest of the pill pack. If you miss two active pills in a row take two pills per day for two days. However, if you miss three active pills in a row, do not take the missed pills. Instead you should use a back up birth control method for at least 7 days. Note that you may experience some bleeding or spotting if you miss three pills in a row. Continuously missing doses could lead to oral contraceptive failure.
Remember that Tarina Fe 24 cannot be used to prevent HIV infection or other sexually transmitted diseases. In order to prevent sexually transmitted diseases, always use condoms when having sexual intercourse.
Tarina 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 unwanted side effects when taking Tarina Fe 24.
Most common adverse reactions include breast tenderness, headaches, nausea, and slightly elevated blood pressure or blood sugar levels. Women who are breastfeeding should not take Tarina Fe 24 because it may decrease breast milk production. Irregular vaginal bleeding or spotting may occur when starting Tarina Fe 24.
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.

There is no direct link between Tarina Fe 24 and weight gain. Some women experience changes in their appetite that may lead to weight gain while taking Tarina Fe 24. Others may find that their bodies retain more fluid while taking Tarina Fe 24, even though they actually don’t gain any body fat.
One of our Patient Care Advisors or licensed physicians will always review the medications and supplements you’re currently taking before prescribing Tarina Fe 24. Certain drugs (recreational, prescription, or over the counter medicines) can interact with Tarina Fe 24 and make it less effective at preventing pregnancy. Drugs that may interact with Tarina Fe 24 include HIV drugs, anti-seizure drugs, antibiotics, and even herbal supplements like St. John’s wort.
Women who have high blood pressure or take medications to control blood pressure should not take Tarina Fe 24. Our Pandia Health medical team recommends other options including progestin-only pill (POPs), IUDs with hormone (Mirena, Liletta, Kyleena, Skyla), copper IUDs, implants (nexplanon), the birth control shot (depo-provera), or condoms and spermicide.
If you choose to pay out-of-pocket, Tarina Fe 24 is a pretty affordable birth control pill, being $ per pack. You can also save money by buying any other Tarina Fe 24 generic equivalent such as —-for $21 per pack or $0 with insurance. Generics have the SAME active ingredients and dosage as the name brand. Watch our video explaining generics vs. brand birth control pills.
You shouldn’t smoke anyway, but especially not if you take estrogen containing birth control pills like Tarina Fe 24. Smoking increases the risk of serious side effects like blood clots, especially in women who are older than 35.
Don’t take Tarina Fe 24 if you’re allergic to any of its ingredients. Signs and symptoms of an allergic reaction to Tarina Fe 24 are rare and usually very mild and may include itching, hives, or dizziness. Serious allergic reactions to Tarina Fe 24 can occur in very rare cases. Stop taking Tarina Fe 24 and call 911 immediately if you experience swelling in the lips, mouth, or tongue, or if you have a hard time breathing.
Combined oral contraceptives aren’t for everyone. Women with a history of certain medical conditions like heart disease, high blood pressure, kidney disease, liver cancer, breast cancer or severe migraines should not take Tarina Fe 24. Our Pandia Health Care Advisors are standing by to help you figure out the best birth control method given your health history.

Our doctor-founded, doctor-led team at Pandia Health is happy to help you get Tarina Fe 24, if safe for you, or any other birth control you need, discreetly and conveniently.
It’s not true that Tarina Fe 24 causes infertility. If you’re taking Tarina Fe 24 and want to have a baby, talk to your doctor and then stop taking the medication. Normal fertility should return within one or two menstrual cycles after your last pill. Dr. Yen explains more about birth control and infertility in this video. Watch to learn more!
You can start taking Tarina Fe at any time but our doctors recommend for your FIRST time, starting on days 3-5 of your period to avoid spotting or breakthrough bleeding going forward.
Tarina Fe price is pretty reasonable being $24 per pack.
