Patient :I am a 46 yr old female who has been prescribed Lo Loestrin Fe by my gynocologist for hormonal imbalance, perimenopause symptoms and to try and shrink my ovarian cysts that are not dissolving on their own. I do not smoke cigarettes but I do vape an electronic cigarette frequently throughout the day which contains 6mg of nicotine. My gynocologist knows this and said it is safe to do while on the pills but I need a second opinion as I am unsure. Is it safe at my age to take this pill and use a nicotine delivery system?
