About Logynon Tablets

Logynon tablets are a type of hormonal contraception commonly known as 'the pill' or combined oral contraceptive pill. Logynon tablets contain two active ingredients, ethinylestradiol and levonorgestrel. These are synthetic versions of the naturally occurring female sex hormones, oestrogen and progesterone. Ethinylestradiol is a synthetic version of oestrogen and levonorgestrel is a synthetic form of progesterone. Logynon is a triphasic pill, meaning that over the course of three weeks, it overrides your normal hormone cycle. You should take the pill every day for 21 days before stopping for a 7-day pill break. Headache, nausea, weight gain and sore breasts can be the possible side effects.

What is Logynon?

Logynon is a prescription contraceptive pill. It contains two artificial hormones that mimic the activity of natural hormones in the body, which regulate ovulation and other reproductive functions and is available as standard with 21 pills per month, ED with 28 pills (7 placeboes).

The standard 21-day version is taken daily for 3 consecutive weeks, followed by a 7-day rest period. The ED version contains 7 no-effect pills (placebo) in addition to the 21 functional tablets, which are taken during the 7-day break. The ED version is indicated for those women who prefer not to have a period of 7 without taking the pill, to avoid carelessness.

How does it work?

Logynon is a combined oral contraceptive (COC) containing ethinyl estradiol (EE) and levonorgestrel. COCs have been shown to exert their effect by decreasing gonadotropin secretion to suppress their ovarian activity, to suppress proliferation of the endometrium, and to cause thickening of the cervical mucus.

What are the benefits of taking it?

Logynon is a birth control pill. The active ingredients ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel are the female sex hormones. The combination of these hormones in Logynon prevents pregnancy. Logynon (Nova Step) is available online at our cooperating pharmacies.

Using Logynon is a reliable emergency contraception method. This pill prevents pregnancy by inhibiting ovulation and changing the composition of the lining of the uterus. There is no actual menstruation while taking it, but the menstrual period may cause slight complaints. Therefore, Logynon is also used to treat menstrual cramps, such as excessive blood loss or severe menstrual pain.

How do I use it and its dosage?

Take one contraceptive pill every day, if necessary with a small amount of water. You should take the tablets every day, around the same time.

The blister contains 21 tablets, each marked with a day of the week. You should start by taking the tablet marked with the correct day of the week. Follow the direction of the arrows on the blister. Take one tablet each day until you have finished all 21 tablets, then do not take more tablets for 7 days.

During those 7 days without tablets (what is known as an interruption or week without treatment), the bleeding will have to start. It is called “withdrawal bleeding” and it starts on the 2nd or 3rd day of the week.

On the 8th day after taking the last Logynon tablet (that is, after the seven-day week without treatment), start taking the next blister pack, even if the bleeding has not stopped.

This means that you should start taking the next blister on the same day of the week, and withdrawal bleeding should appear on the same days each month.

If you use Logynonin this way, you will also be protected from pregnancy during the 7 days that you are not taking the tablets.
