My doctor (or pharmacy... I have no idea which -it was sort of a surprise) switched me from Loestrin?1.5/30 to 1/20. I am wondering if I am still protected against pregnancy or if I should have been using a back up method. I had no idea the dosage was different until I read the package and realized the other day. Since it is the same brand/hormone and just a slightly different dosage, should I be okay? I am very nervous
I would check with the pharmacy and ask what the prescription says. They are way easier to get an answer without a hassle. If the prescription says to change then call the dr and ask why. It is entirely possible the pharmacy goofed. If you and the doctor didn't discuss changing and why, would he have just changed it?
