How Does Zenchent Fe Work?As mentioned, Zenchent Fe is a combined oral contraceptive, which means it contains two different types of hormones: an estrogen (ethinyl estradiol) and a progestin (norethindrone). These hormones prevent pregnancy primarily by stopping ovulation (the maturation and release of eggs from the ovaries).
This drug also works to prevent pregnancy in two other, minor ways. Zenchent Fe changes the cervical mucus (the fluid of the cervix, which is the lower, narrow part of the uterus that is connected to the vagina), making it more difficult for sperm to enter the uterus. It also alters the lining of the uterus (the endometrium), making it less receptive to an embryo.
Like most birth control pills, each pack of Zenchent Fe contains 21 active tablets, which contain the hormones, followed by 7 inactive tablets that do not contain any hormones. The last seven tablets do, however, contain iron (the chemical symbol for iron is Fe). The iron may help prevent anemia due to blood loss during your period, although it is debatable whether this really makes a difference or not.
