Loestrin is a combined oral contraceptive, which most people generally refer to as 'the pill'. Loestrin is almost 100% effective at preventing conception and is available in two dosage strengths, Loestrin 20 and Loestrin 30. Both provide convenient and comprehensive contraceptive protection, however, you may choose to use one over the other depending on your tolerance to the active ingredients, ethinylestradiol and norethisterone.
Loestrin pills can be purchased safely and conveniently online from HealthExpress. In order to help you choose the right birth control pill, we ask all our patients to fill out a free online consultation. After completion, your consultation will be reviewed by one of our doctors who can issue a prescription for this treatment, as well as recommending other treatments that may be suitable for you.
Taking a Loestrin pill on the first day of your period will provide you with immediate protection against pregnancy. If you aren't able to take it at this time, you can take it on the second to fifth day of your period, but you will have to wait seven days for its contraceptive effects to work. Loestrin pills can also have the additional benefit of helping to regulate your periods and can be particularly helpful for women who struggle with long and painful periods.
Loestrin pills work in a similar way to most other combination oral contraceptives. The synthetic hormones present in each pill will trick the body into thinking ovulation has already happened, which means that an egg never gets released for fertilisation. It also thickens the mucous in the cervix so sperm can't enter the womb and prevents the womb lining from becoming thick enough for an egg to attach itself, if one does get released. Loestrin pills should not have any long term effect on your fertility and your cycle will return to normal when you stop using this pill.
Loestrin pills can be purchased online by women aged 18 or over, provided that they are healthy and that they are not pregnant or breastfeeding. You should not take Loestrin 20 or 30 if you have heart, liver or circulation problems, have had a stroke, high blood pressure or varicose veins. It is advisable to mention any existing or past medical conditions or treatments that you are taking, or have recently stopped using, when filling in your consultation.
Loestrin pills should be taken for 21 days of your 28 day menstrual cycle, which leaves you with a seven day period where you won't need to use this contraceptive. During this period you may experience bleeding similar to your menstrual cycle, but this is only because your body is removing the artificial hormones that Loestrin supplements your body with. You will still be protected from pregnancy during this time, but you must remember to start a new course after the seven days have passed.
Loestrin pills are generally well tolerated; however, it can cause some mild side effects in some women. Some of the most common side effects experienced by women are headaches, nausea, vomiting, breast tenderness, changes in weight, water retention, vaginal thrush and changes in menstrual bleeding.
Hormonal headaches are triggered in some women due to hormonal changes in the body, especially if there is an increase in oestrogen. If you experience many headaches with one type of oral contraceptive, you may want to look at alternatives with lower levels of oestrogen and progestogen, or ask our doctors for advice.
HealthExpress offers you a convenient consultation service to help you determine whether this treatment is suited to your lifestyle and your body.
