Logynon
Start Consultation
Logynon is a combination pill that consists of an estrogen (ethinylestradiol) and a progestin (levonorgestrel).

It is not suitable during breast feeding.
Tablets are taken orally by swallowing whole with water, once daily for 21 days, followed by a 7-day break.

When starting Logynon, the first tablet should be taken on the first day of your cycle (that is, the first day of your period). If you start Logynon on the first day of your period you are immediately protected against pregnancy.
If you are already on a different pill, then Logynon should be started on the day after you finish your last pack of your current pill. If taking the ‘mini pill’ (progesterone only) then begin taking Logynon the first day you bleed, even if you have already taken your previous pill. This will give you immediate cover.

If you have recently had a baby, Logynon should be taken 21 days after delivery as long as you are fully mobile and recovered. For the first 7 days of taking Logynon, you will need additional contraception (e.g. condoms) to protect against pregnancy. You should contact your doctor if you have experienced miscarriage or abortion.
As a combined pill, Logynon is a very effective form of contraception when taken as directed.
Common side effects (between 100 and 1000 in every 10,000 users may be affected) include feeling sick, stomach ache, putting on weight, headaches, depressive moods or mood swings, and sore or painful breasts.

There is an increased risk of thromboembolism for all women who use combined hormonal contraceptives such as Logynon.
