    What is Loestrin used for?


    Loestrin is a birth control pill and is used to prevent pregnancy. It contains two female sex hormones – an estrogen and a progestin. Birth control pills work in two ways, by inhibiting the release of an egg by the ovaries and by changing the mucus produced by the cervix which slows the movement of the sperm through the mucus and the uterus. A complete medical examination and family history is necessary before birth control pills are prescribed. A physical examination should include measuring blood pressure and examining the breasts, abdomen, pelvic organs, and limbs. A second visit to your doctor should take place three months or sooner after starting birth control pills. During this visit, any side effects should be evaluated and your blood pressure checked again. Afterward, an annual examination similar to the first visit is recommended. A Pap smear is usually taken before starting birth control pills and then at intervals recommended by your doctor.
