Hi Moms!! 

I am on a hunt for new birth control as my favorite one Loestrin 24 FE has been DISCONTINUED!!! The manufacturers made another one that is basically the same and same price however it is chewable! Yuck! 

I don't know if I can handle a chewable. I am debating, but thinking of just switching...


so what do YOU use? Thanks in advance! 


p.s. Please don't post condoms, abstinence, ect ect. That wont help me, I need to know the name of another good brand that women like. Thanks! :)

Why can't you chew it? I'm sure it's flavored.
Could you just swallow it?

I've tried pills, depo & nuva ring. I hated hated hated the depo shot. Worse thing I've ever taken. I used the nuva ring for a few years and like that.

Depo shot. Cons- weight gain, I spot a few days every 3 months. Pros- no periods, not pregnant lol, and I dont have to remember to take anything. I get a shot every 3 months.

I have not had to use birth control pills in over 10 years.........but a chewable one sounds gross.   I would reseach and ask your dr :)

Implant. It's been awesome for me, maybe two periods in a year, no weight gain, no problems at all.

I'm on the generic brand of Loestrrin FE. It's microgestin FE... Had no probs switching and is a lot cheaper. Wow hope they don't discontinue it !
