May be a dumb question! But is there a diff between loestrin 24 & loestrin 24 FE?

That's not a dumb question at all! Yes, the difference is that the Loestrin FE has an iron supplement as well as the birth control hormones. They usually use it in women who are heavy bleeders and tend towards iron deficiency anemia. Fe is the elemental symbol for iron. Regular Loestrin 24 does not have the iron supplement.

Thank you! I was looking into different forms of birth control and stumbled upon Loestrin 24 FE. Thinking about asking the dr to switch me to this.
