• Combined oestrogen and progestogen
Lucette
Start Consultation
Lucette is a combination pill that consists of an estrogen (ethinylestradiol) and a progestin (drospirenone) . As well as preventing pregnancy, it can also make your periods more regular, lighter, reduce period pain and decrease risk of ovarian cysts.

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 Lucette, the first tablet should be taken on the first day of your cycle (that is, the first day of your period). If you start Lucette on the first day of your period you are immediately protected against pregnancy. You may also begin on day 2-5 of the cycle, but then you must use extra contraception (e.g. condoms) for the first 7 days.

If you are already on a different pill, then Lucette should be started on the day after you finish your last pack of your current pill.

If you have recently had a baby, Lucette should be taken 21 – 28 days after delivery as long as you are fully mobile and recovered. For the first 7 days of taking Lucette, 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, Lucette is a very effective form of contraception when taken as directed.
Common side effects (between 1 and 10 in every 100 users may be affected) include depressive mood, headache, migraine, nausea, breast pain and/or tenderness, bleeding between periods, thick whitish vaginal discharge and vaginal yeast infection.

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