Loestrin and Loestrin Fe are quite similar, but there is a minor difference between both of them. They are both made by Duramed Pharmaceuticals. Loestrin is a birth control pill that contains estrogen and progestin. Loestrin includes 21 pills that contain hormones and seven pills without hormone.

This medication is to be taken every day. Loestrin Fe is similar to Loestrin in that it is also birth control pills that contain estrogen and progestin. However, Loestrin contains 21 pills with hormones and seven pills that contain iron. I hope you find this information helpful.

Some people are wondering if there is any difference between the Loestrin and the Loestrin Fe.They are both created by Duramed Pharmaceuticals but their main difference is the mixture of hormones that are placed for each.

Loestrin contains estrogen and prostegin while Loestrin Fe also contains these two hormones plus iron. Take note that the hormones that can be found in these capsules are also active hormones. There is still not the generic variation of the Loestrin Fe but some reports state that an available one might become available in the year 2029. For those who are wondering what these two drugs are for, they are for birth control.
