Femcon FE, a Chewable Birth Control Pill

Femcon FE or generic Norethindrone/Ethinyl Estradiol is convenient for women on the go or for those ladies that have trouble swallowing pills as this birth control pill is a chewable spearmint flavor that you take daily with a glass of water to wash it down to help prevent an unplanned pregnancy. Each pack consists of 24 active pills that combine .4mg of a progestin and 35mcg of an estrogen and 4 inactive pills (without hormones) but with a small amount of iron (FE). This is believed to help you adapt to the habit of taking a pill every day. There is not enough iron in the inactive pills to treat an iron deficiency. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

How Femcon FE Suppresses Ovulation

It is almost impossible to prevent ovulation 100% of the time, which is why there is usually a 99% effectiveness when birth control pills are used perfectly. That means you must never forget to take it, you always take it within 24 hours of previous pill, and you will not need to take any Rx drugs that could possibly interfere with Femcon FE. Realistically, oral birth control is about 91% effective.

Femcon FE will suppress your ovulation several ways; first, it will trick your body into thinking it is already pregnant because the pill raises progesterone levels in your body which is what occurs when you are pregnant; second, cervical mucus thickens so sperm have a more difficult time reaching and fertilizing a mature egg; third, the lining of your womb is under developed so a fertilized egg cannot attach; and fourth, the hormones in Femcon FE alters the movement of your Fallopian tubes which can decrease the possibility of a mature egg being fertilized.

Before You Start Taking Femcon FE

Make certain you are not pregnant before starting on Femcon FE. You should explain other medical conditions or allergies you have to your doctor and list any OTC or Rx drugs you currently take or use, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements. This can help to determine if Femcon FE is safe for you to take.

Proper Use of Femcon FE

If this is your first time taking an oral contraceptive for the purpose of preventing a pregnancy, a back-up method should be used for the first 7 days, such as a condom, spermicide, a diaphragm, or abstain from sexual intercourse. If you become ill or are expecting to be on bed rest for any length of time, you may need to stop taking Femcon FE until you are up and healthy. If you are over 35 years and smoke, your risk of side effects from taking oral birth control pills is greatly increased. Keep all medications out of children’s reach. Femcon FE may also be prescribed to correct irregular periods, or to reduce cramping and blood flow during menstruation.
