More information about Lucette

What is Lucette?

Lucette is a combined contraceptive pill that is used to prevent unwanted pregnancies. Lucette is a oral pill that contains two active ingredients: ethinylestradiol and drospirenone. They are synthetic versions of the female sex hormones oestrogen and progesterone respectively.

Benefits of Lucette

Lucette is used to prevent you from becoming pregnant when you don't want to be. It can also help to make periods less painful, less heavy, or more regular.

How does Lucette work?

Lucette tablets contain ethinylestradiol and drospirenone. These synthetic hormones override the natural menstrual cycle and make the body stop releasing eggs.

Under normal menstruation patterns, the sex hormones cause the body to release an egg from the ovaries each month. They also make the body prepare the lining of the womb for a potential pregnancy. If this egg hasn't been fertilised at the end of each month, hormone levels fall and the womb is shed as a period.

By taking a daily dose of hormones in the form of the pill, women can trick their body into thinking that ovulation has already happened. As a result no egg is released and they cannot become pregnant.

The hormones also make the mucus at the neck of the womb become thicker, making it harder for sperm to enter the womb and reach an egg. They also change the womb lining to make it less likely that a fertilized egg will implant there.

How do I take Lucette?

Lucette is an example of a monophasic pill, which means that each tablet contains the same amount of hormones. The recommended dose is to take one tablet every day for 21 days, before a seven-day break.

This break means that hormone levels will drop and there will be a withdrawal bleed similar to a period. After seven days it is essential to start the next pack of tablets, even if a bleed is still in progress.

If the instructions are followed, protection will last during the seven-day pill-free time. Try to take the pill at the same time each day with a drink. It can be taken with or without food.

What to do if you miss a pill

Anyone who forgets to take a pill at the regular time should take one as soon as they remember. If that is longer than 24 hours after the regular time, it counts as a missed pill.

After a missed pill you should take a tablet as soon as possible, even if that means two tablets at the same time. Continue to take the rest of the pack as normal.

If two or more pills are forgotten, take them as soon as possible even if it means taking two at once. Continue to take the rest of the pack as instructed. It's important to also use another method of contraception during the next seven days, as there will be no protection from pregnancy. This may include condoms.

Vomiting or diarrhoea

Vomiting within two hours of taking your pill means that it might not have been properly absorbed into the bloodstream. Take another pill as soon as you can and continue according to your schedule. In this case you are most likely still protected from pregnancy.

If you are vomiting for over 24 hours it may make the pill less effective. Keep taking your pill according to the schedule, but treat each day as if you have forgotten to take a tablet. Refer to the instructions in the section "What to do if you miss a pill".

If you have severe diarrhoea for more than 24 hours, the pill may be less effective. Take your pill according to schedule, but treat each day as if you have forgotten to take a tablet. Refer to the instructions in the section "What to do if a pill was forgotten."

What dosages are available?

Lucette is a combined pill and therefore includes both oestrogen and progesterone; ethinylestradiol and drospirenone. These hormones work together to prevent unwanted pregnancy.

Like most contraception, there is only one dosage available and in Lucette this is 0.03mg of oestrogen and 3mg of progesterone.

What side effects are associated with Lucette?

As with any other medicine, there is a chance that certain people could experience side effects when taking Lucette. However most people won't experience any side effects.

Combined hormonal contraceptives increase the risk of blood clots in veins or arteries.

What precautions/interactions should I be aware of with Lucette?

You must always tell your doctor about any other medicines that you take before you start a course of Lucette. This includes over-the-counter medicines and herbal medicines.

Certain medicines can make Lucette less effective at stopping unwanted pregnancies, or lead to unexpected bleeding. This may include medicines used to treat:

  • Epilepsy
  • Tuberculosis (e.g. rifampcin)
  • HIV and Hepatitis C (e.g. ritonavir, nevirapine, efavirenz) and other infections (griseofulvin)
  • High blood pressure (e.g. bosentan)

Do not use Lucette if you are being treated for, or have had, any of the following conditions:

  • A blood clot in a blood vessel
  • A disorder that affects the clotting of the blood
  • An operation or something that keeps you off your feet for extended periods
  • A heart attack or a stroke
  • Angina pectoris or transient ischaemic attack
  • Severe diabetes with blood vessel damage
  • Very high blood pressure
  • Very high level of fats in the blood
  • Migraine with an aura
  • Liver disease
  • Renal failure
  • A tumour on the liver
  • Breast cancer or genital cancer
  • Unexplained bleeding from the vagina

Do not take Lucette if you are allergic to any of the ingredients used in the tablets. Please note that Lucette contains soya oil; those who are allergic to peanut or soya should not use the medication.
