What is Junel Fe?

Junel Fe is a birth control pill that doubles as an iron supplement, which helps with energy levels and immune function, plus has a whole bunch of other benefits. Take it right, and you’ll make pregnancy highly unlikely.

We carry three types of Junel Fe, which vary in hormone dose and amount of active pills (those are the ones containing hormones). The doctor can help you decide which Junel Fe is right for you.

How does Junel Fe birth control work?

There are two hormones in Junel Fe: norethindrone and ethinyl estradiol. These work like progesterone and estrogen in the body. They help to:

  • stop the ovary from releasing an egg (no egg = no fertilization)
  • keep the uterus lining thin (this is where an egg implants and a baby grows during pregnancy)
  • thicken cervical fluid (making it more difficult for sperm to swim through).

Stopping the uterus lining from getting too thick also helps to lighten periods for some women.

Is there more than one Junel Fe dosage?

Yes, there are three.

You’ve got Junel Fe 1.5/30. This dose is for women who want to take a pill that can also help with menstrual symptoms. There’s also Junel Fe 1/20, which is the lower dose. This is good for women who want to take combined birth control but get side effects on stronger doses. Junel 24 is very similar to Junel Fe 1/20. The main difference is that there are three extra active hormone tablets (24 instead of 21).

Each of the Junel Fe dosages we offer are 28 tablet packs. The inactive or “spacer” pills in Junel Fe don’t contain hormones, but do carry iron. You can also get Junel in pack sizes of 21 (Junel 21). These work just the same for birth control, but without the iron spacer tablets.

How to take Junel Fe

It’s important to take birth control pills exactly as the doctor has described. Not following the instructions provided may weaken your protection. Always read the package insert before taking any medical treatment.

Take Junel Fe orally, with water. You need to take Junel Fe at the same time every day. If this is the first time you’re taking Junel Fe and you’re not switching from a different birth control method, take the first tablet on the first Sunday which follows your period. If your period begins on a Sunday, take your first pill on that day. Use additional birth control, like condoms, for seven days following the start of this course. This does not apply if your period began on a Sunday and you started taking Junel Fe on that day.

If you’re taking Junel Fe 1/20 or 1.5/30, there are 21 white “active” pills. These contain the active ingredients required to prevent pregnancy. This is then followed by seven days of daily brown tablets, which are “inactive.” These pills will help you to keep track of when to start again, and also carry an iron supplement (to help prevent iron deficiency).

You’ll do the same with Junel 24, only there are 24 active pills instead of 21.

If you feel nauseous while taking this treatment, try and take it after an evening meal or at bedtime. You can pick any time of day to take Junel Fe, but once you’ve picked a time it’s important to stick to it.

What to do if you miss a Junel Fe pill

Missing pills can reduce your protection, so it’s important to avoid this as much as possible. But if you do miss a pill, check the package insert for advice on what to do next.

If you miss one white “active” pill, take it as soon as you remember. Then, at the normal time, take the next pill. This can mean taking two pills in one day. After this, return to one pill daily at the usual time.

If you miss two white “active” pills in Week One or Two of your course, as shown on the pill packet, take two pills daily for two days. After this, return to one pill daily at the usual time.

If you miss two white “active” pills in Week Three of your course and you’re a Day One Starter, discard your current pill packet and start a new one. If you are a Sunday Starter, keep taking pills daily until Sunday. On Sunday, discard your pill packet and begin a new one.

If you miss three white “active” pills in Weeks One, Two or Three of your course and you’re a Day One Starter, discard your current pill packet and begin a new one. If you’re a Sunday Starter, keep taking pills daily until Sunday. On Sunday, discard your pill packet and begin a new one.

If you miss two or more pills, your protection will become reduced. You must make use of an additional method of birth control, like condoms, for seven days following this. Speak with the doctor if you’re unsure.

How effective is Junel Fe?

When Junel Fe is taken perfectly, meaning no pills missed, it is thought to be over 99% effective. Out of 100 women taking it over 12 months, this means that fewer than one will get pregnant.

Pregnancy rates rise for women who miss the occasional pill or take it at the wrong time, so it’s better to follow the instructions closely. The more pills you miss or forget, the lower your protection will be.

How we source info.

When we present you with stats, data, opinion or a consensus, we’ll tell you where this came from. And we’ll only present data as clinically reliable if it’s come from a reputable source, such as a state or government-funded health body, a peer-reviewed medical journal, or a recognised analytics or data body. Read more in our editorial policy.

Junel Fe: FAQ

Have something specific you want to know? Search our info below, or ask our experts a question if you can’t find what you’re looking for.

Are there Junel Fe generics?

Answer:
Yes. Other pills that have the same hormone concentrations (translated: are close to being the same pill) as Junel Fe are Microgestin Fe, Loestrin Fe, Gildess Fe, Larin Fe, Blisovi Fe, Aurovela Fe, Hailey Fe and Tarina Fe.

What’s different about these pills? Mainly the price, what the pills look like, the packaging and who makes them. But the way they work in the body should be the same, from effectiveness right down to side effects. So if you were taking one of the above pills, but can’t find it any more. Junel Fe could be a good option for you.

Does Junel Fe have other health benefits?

Answer:
Because birth control pills contain hormones, which have many different roles in the body, some can provide other health benefits aside from birth control.

Junel Fe can be prescribed for the treatment of pimples and acne, but this is done at a doctor’s discretion. It may also be prescribed off-label for a number of other health conditions.

Can you take Junel Fe for acne?

Answer:
The combined pill can help to keep acne under control. Junel Fe isn’t indicated for this, which is a fancy way of saying it’s not a primary use of this medicine and there are other pill options that are better at controlling acne. If you are looking for a pill that can help with acne, let the physician know during your consultation.

Can I take Junel Fe with food and alcohol?

Answer:
You can take Junel Fe with or without food. If you experience feelings of sickness or nausea, try taking it after a meal. However, it’s important to always take Junel Fe at exactly the same time daily.

Junel Fe isn’t thought to interact with alcohol.

What’s the difference between Junel Fe 24, 1/20 and 1.5/30?

Answer:
The number of active pills, and the level of hormones.

Junel Fe 24 and Junel Fe 1/20 contain the same level of hormones, so are a lower dose. But Junel Fe 24 is a 24-day pill, while Junel 1/20 is a 21-day pill. These are more suited to women who are sensitive to higher hormone levels, or who tried the higher dose and got side effects.

Junel Fe 1.5/30 is a higher-dose alternative.

All these packs come in 28-pill packs, with inactive iron pills as spacers for the seven- or four-day break.

Will I get a period on Junel Fe?

Answer:
A lot of women who take Junel Fe find their periods are lighter or become more regular. You should have a withdrawal bleed around the time you’re taking the inactive pills.

There is a way you can take Junel Fe and get no period, but you’ll need to let the doctor know you’re interested in this during your consultation. This method involves skipping the inactive pills and taking your next pack after your active pill section is finished.

For women who want to take Junel in this way, the regular Junel 21 pill (instead of Junel Fe or Junel 28 pill packs) will be more suitable.

Are Blisovi Fe and Junel Fe the same?

Answer:
They’re very similar. Blisovi Fe and Junel Fe both contain the same hormones in the same amounts, and they’re available in the same doses (1/20, 1.5/30 and 24).

What’s the difference between Junel Fe and Loestrin Fe?

Answer:
There’s very little difference between Loestrin Fe and Junel Fe. They are available in the same doses, and should work the same in the body. They’re both packaged by Teva in the US. The colours of the tablets and the packaging may be different, and Loestrin Fe is more expensive.

Why should I buy Junel Fe with Treated?

Answer:
We want to put the power back in your hands. No more taking time off work, no more awkward trips to the pharmacy. Our process is simple, discreet and designed with you in mind.

Take our online birth control consultation. A doctor will then review your medical profile, and recommend a medication based on your health and requirements. After you have selected your preferred option and set up your schedule, a prescription will be generated for you by the physician, and sent to our preferred pharmacy GoGoMeds to be dispensed. You’ll receive your first package in just a few working days, and refills as often as you need them after that.
