Blisovi Fe is a combined birth control pill. That’s a pill which combines both of the hormones used in birth control: progestin (synthetic progesterone) and estrogen. The “Fe” in the name means the inactive pills contain an iron supplement. If you have an iron deficiency, the amount of iron in Blisovi Fe isn’t enough to treat it — but it’s a great bonus during your period week.
The specific hormones in Blisovi Fe are norethindrone acetate and ethinyl estradiol. You can learn more about the dosages and the different types of Blisovi Fe in the section right below.
We offer three different types of Blisovi Fe.
There’s Blisovi Fe 1/20 and Blisovi Fe 1.5/30. The numbers in those two refer to the amount of hormones. So Blisovi Fe 1/20 has 1mg of norethindrone acetate and 20mcg (that’s micrograms) of ethinyl estradiol, and Blisovi Fe 1.5/30 has 1.5mg of norethindrone acetate and 30mcg of ethinyl estradiol. They’re both what’s called a 21-day pack of birth control: you take the active pills for 21 days, and then inactive pills for 7 days.
Blisovi 24 Fe is a little different. The number in the name refers to the type of pack, in this case a 24-pack. That means you take the active pills for 24 days and then have just 4 days of inactive pills with the iron supplement. The hormone strength of Blisovi 24 Fe is the same as that of Blisovi Fe 1/20: the active pills contain 1mg of norethindrone acetate and 20mcg of ethinyl estradiol.
Hormonal birth control contains synthetic versions of hormones that are already in your body. Changing the amounts of these hormones changes how your body does certain things every month, keeping you safe from pregnancy.
Blisovi Fe will likely keep you from ovulating, which is when the ovary releases an egg. If there’s no egg, there’s no fertilization and definitely no pregnancy. Because ovulation doesn’t stop for everyone taking hormonal birth control, though, there are a few other things the pill does to make sure you’re protected. The mucus in your cervix grows thicker, which blocks sperm from getting through. And the lining of your uterine wall stays thin instead of building over the course of the month. Biologically, this means that a fertilized egg won’t have a comfortable wall to attach to. Practically, this means that you’ll experience a shorter, lighter period.

Like other hormonal birth control pills, Blisovi Fe is most effective when taken at the same time every day. Before you start your first pack, you should pick a time of day that will work for you every day of the week. That means that if you’re an early bird on weekdays but enjoy a lie-in on the weekends, an early morning time isn’t a great choice. You can set an alarm on your phone so you remember to take your pill but after a while, the routine should become easier to remember.
Depending on when you start taking the pill, it might not be immediately effective. We recommend using a back-up birth control method like condoms for the first 7 days, as you wait for the hormones to kick in.
Nausea is a possible side effect of Blisovi Fe. If you experience it, try taking your pill with a snack or small meal. Taking birth control with food isn’t a requirement, though. Feel free to take it with just a sip of water, or nothing at all (we won’t judge).
Because Blisovi Fe 1/20 and Blisovi Fe 1.5/30 are both 21-day packs, you’ll take active pills for the first three weeks and then finish with a week of inactive pills containing an iron supplement. The week when you’re taking the inactive pill is when you’ll get your period.
If you’re taking Blisovi 24 Fe, you’ll have 24 days of active pills followed by 4 days of inactive pills. Compared to Blisovi Fe 1/20 and 1.5/30, you might experience a shorter period.
When you miss a pill, your birth control becomes a little less effective. That might sound a little scary, but it also puts the effectiveness in your hands. Pick a time that works for you, and do your best to take it every day. If you find yourself missing pills regularly, it might be better to try a birth control that you don’t need to interact with as much, like the patch or ring.
It happens to the best of us. You forgot to set your alarm, had a surprise meeting or got caught up in a really good book. As long as you get back on track as soon as possible, you don’t need to worry.
Miss a single pill? Take it as soon as you remember. If that means taking two pills the same day, that’s ok.
Miss two active pills in Week 1 or Week 2? Take two pills a day for two days before going back to your normal routine. We also recommend using condoms or another back-up birth control for a week, just to be on the safe side.
Miss two consecutive pills in Week 3? Throw your pack away and start a new one. Same goes if you miss three active pills in a row during any week.
And if you miss one of your inactive pills, you’re totally in the clear. Just throw away the missed pill and proceed as normal.
Because missing pills changes the hormone levels in your body, it’s possible you won’t get a period that month. If it doesn’t come back by the following month, though, we recommend taking a pregnancy test.
