General Instructions for Taking Microgestin Fe

General Information on Dosing With Microgestin Fe

Some considerations for people using Microgestin Fe include the following:
 
  • The medication comes in tablet form. It is taken by mouth once a day.
     
  • You can take Microgestin Fe with or without food. If the drug bothers your stomach, try taking it with food. This may be especially important for the last seven tablets, which contain iron, as iron can irritate the stomach.
     
  • Each pack of Microgestin Fe contains 28 pills. Make sure to take them in order. Once you finish a pack, start a new one right away. You will probably get your period during the last seven days of the pack.
     
  • It is normal to experience breakthrough bleeding or spotting between periods while taking Microgestin Fe. Keep taking the drug as normal.
     
  • It is important to take Microgestin Fe every day and at the same time each day. Try to pick a time that is easy to remember, such as at bedtime or breakfast. If you have trouble remembering, please talk with your healthcare provider, as missing pills increases your risk of pregnancy.
     
  • Make sure you know exactly what to do if you miss any pills. In some circumstances, you may need to use a backup method of contraception, such as condoms, for seven days.
     
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. Microgestin Fe will not work if you stop taking it.
     
  • If you are unsure about anything related to Microgestin Fe dosing, please talk to your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist.
