For the past 7 years I have taken Estrostep FE. This month my pharmacy gave me Loestrin 24 Fe for the first time. They assured me it was exactly the same as name brand I had been taking. For my menstrual cycle it was horrible. I could not do anything for two days and lasted 15 days. I have never in my life had any problems. I never have bad menstrual cycles and am wondering if it would be possible that because I changed meds it caused the problems??
