What is Logynon?

Logynon, more commonly known as "the pill", or combined oral contraceptive pill, is a hormonal contraceptive tablet.

Logynon contains the 2 synthetic hormones, ethinylestradiol and levonorgestrel, analogues of the female sex hormones oestrogen and progesterone, respectively.

How does Logynon work?

Logynon works by over-riding the normal menstrual cycle in women. Normally, female sex hormones cause ovulation to occur once a month. Logynon tricks the female body into thinking that ovulation has already occurred, preventing the release of a ripe egg for fertilisation.

Further contraceptive properties of Logynon include making it more difficult for sperm to reach an egg from the vagina and making it more difficult for a fertilised egg to implant in the lining of the womb.

Other benefits of Logynon?

Taking Logynon can also help make your periods lighter, less painful and more regular.

How to use Logynon?

Logynon is taken over 21 days, involving 3 types of tablets containing varying levels of hormones. The blister pack contains 6 light brown tablets containing 30 micrograms (μg) ethinylestradiol, 50 μg levonorgestrel, 5 white tablets containing 40 μg ethinylestradiol and 75 μg levonorgestrel, and 10 ochre tablets containing 30 μg ethinylestradiol and 125 μg levonorgestrel.

The order in which to take these pills is specified on the packaging and the blister pack. You should begin with the light brown tablet labelled '1', and continue to take 1 tablet daily for 21 days, pausing for 7 days thereafter. During your 7-day break, your blood hormone levels will decrease, resulting in a withdrawal bleed similar to your normal period. You should begin the next pack after the 7-day pause, even if you are still bleeding.

Who can use Logynon?

You should not use Logynon if you have a known sensitivity or allergy to any ingredient included in pills, are pregnant, lactating, have a history of venous thromboembolism such as deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism, a history of blood disorders that increase the risk of blood clots in the veins such as antiphospholipid syndrome or factor V Leiden, or have long-term conditions such as systemic lupus erythematosus.

You should use Logynon with caution if you are over 35 years of age, have a family history of cardiovascular disorders and blood clots before the age of 45, are obese, are a smoker, have diabetes mellitus, hypertension or cardiovascular disease. We will be able to advise you after you submit a consultation form.
