I've been on one kind of birth control for over 3 years

Customer Question

I've been on one kind of birth control for over 3 years (Gildess FE 1.20) and it's worked like clockwork. Just last month my insurance changed and I am now using Junel FE 1/20. I'm 2 days late. Is this normal? Aren't all the active ingredients the same? Or does each brand vary slightly? Thank you.

Hello and thanks for your question! You're speaking with Dr. Bridget. I appreciate your patience as I review your question and prepare my response.

Expert:  Dr. Bridget replied 6 months ago.

Gildess FE 1/20 and Junel FE 1/20 contain the same active ingredient in the same amounts. You should not expect any differences in the way these medicines work for you.

Do you have further questions? I am here for you:)

Hi! How is everything going with the Junel FE? Did your period arrive yet? I haven't heard back from you yet:)
