    Is anyone on loestrin 20 for contraception?
    Ive been taking it for years to control periods but have just started sleeping with my bf and I'm not sure if it would be effective contraception against pregnancy alone?
    Thanks for helping

    It's a standard combined pill. As such, when taken properly it's very reliable.

    No less reliable than any other pill. Was on it for a while, couldn't do a number 2 without taking laxatives except for on my pill free weeks - so I came off after a couple of months and changed back to another brand.*
