More information about Logynon
Logynon (ethinylestradiol and levonorgestrel) is an effective triphasic contraceptive (also referred to as 'the pill' or combined oral contraceptive pill) that is used to prevent pregnancy.
Triphasic contraceptives use three different doses of pills in each pack, so that the dosage of hormones can rise and fall as needed throughout your cycle. The colours are ochre, light brown and white to be taken in the correct order.
This helps to reduce side effects, such as breakthrough bleeding, spotting and absent periods, which some women can experience while using single dose pills. Logynon is also a proven treatment for endometriosis, a condition where womb cells grow outside of the womb.
When taking Logynon (also referenced as Logynon ED), you may experience a wide variety of benefits. These benefits include:
Logynon uses two different hormones to prevent contraception; a synthetic oestrogen (ethinylestradiol) and a synthetic progestogen (levonorgestrel). They work to prevent pregnancy in three different ways.
For immediate protection, you should start taking your first Logynon pill on the very first day of your period. You will need to use an additional barrier contraceptive such as condoms for the following seven days.
If you happen to forget to take your pill or more than one pill in one blister pack at the usual time, follow the below protocol:
You can find out more details about using this combined contraceptive in the patient information leaflet attached at the bottom of this page or by consulting with your doctor.

*Vomiting and diarrhoea experienced within four hours of taking the pill is also classed as a missed pill.
*There are more than seven pills left in the pack. Continue to finish the pack, overlapping the seven-day break. Take your seven-day break and start your new pack as usual.
*There are fewer than seven pills left in the pack. Continue to finish the pack, overlapping the seven-day break. Start the new pack immediately after the old one is finished (missing out the seven-day break completely).
*If you have missed contraceptive pills in the first one to nine days of the pill pack and have had sex without barrier contraception, you could be pregnant. If you have calculated this between one to five days after the unprotected sex, you could use emergency contraception such as the IUD or morning-after pill. If not, continue your contraception until the seven-day break. If you don't have any bleeding, it is advised to take a pregnancy test and/or consult your doctor.
For more information about what to do if you've missed your dosage for a significant period, it's always best to speak to your doctor or pharmacist.
Logynon tablets come in a set amount of varying dosages, which are to be taken throughout the month as instructed. The quantities of medicine contained in the pills have been specifically formulated to maintain efficacy whilst simultaneously minimising potential side effects.
Logynon pills need to be taken in the right order to be effective. Each pack contains six light brown tablets (30mcg ethinylestradiol and 50mcg levonorgestrel), which are taken first, followed by five white tablets (40mcg ethinylestradiol and 75mcg levonorgestrel) and then ten tan coloured tablets (30mcg ethinylestradiol and 125mcg levonorgestrel).
Users of contraceptives can experience side effects, depending on their tolerance towards the synthetic hormones used. It's quite common for first time users to experience some side effects, but as Logynon is a triphasic pill, the possibility of you experiencing them is significantly reduced.
Side effects you could potentially experience while taking Logynon ED include nausea, weight gain, breast tenderness, headaches, abdominal pain, skin reactions, and menstrual spotting.
If any of these potential side effects happen to occur and persist, it is advised that you speak to a doctor to discuss your condition and a possible alternative.
Most women who are over 18 can buy Logynon online to use as a daily contraceptive. Some women, however, may be prohibited from using it due to an existing health condition. Women who may not be able to use this contraceptive include those who suffer or have suffered from:

Note: Decisions about treatment are for both the prescriber and the person to jointly consider during the consultation. However, the final decision will always be the prescriber’s.
Logynon is a triphasic combined contraceptive pill. It works by preventing the ovaries from releasing eggs and thickening the cervical mucus, which makes it more difficult for sperm to reach the uterus and fertilize an egg.
Logynon does contain the same ingredients as Triregol, but they are both different brands. They do work in exactly the same.
Logynon is effective immediately if taken within the first 5 days of your cycle. Any other time, it may take up to a week until it is effective and you should use barrier contraception for that time.
Yes, you can take Logynon without taking a 7 day pill-free break to bleed. However, it's always best to discuss your dosage with your doctor beforehand.
Yes, Logynon can cause weight gain in some women. However, weight gain may have many causes including variations during your menstrual cycle. If you're worried about side effects of the pill, please consult your doctor before taking it.
No, Logynon is not intended to stop periods. Whilst it's not uncommon to occasionally skip a bleed during the 7 day break between strips, you should still be protected if you have taken the pills correctly. However, if you have missed a pill or taken other medicines for instance, this may have interefered with Logynon and you should take a pregnancy test to confirm.
