About Logynon Pill

How to take Logynon

How does Logynon work?

Logynon contains two different female sex hormones, progesterone and oestrogen. These hormones prevent pregnancy in three ways:

by stopping your ovaries releasing eggs;
by stopping the lining of your womb thickening to receive an egg;
by thickening the mucus in your cervix, making it harder for sperm to reach your womb

How is Logynon taken?

Logynon is taken orally on a daily basis, should be taken with water and should not be chewed. You should take your pill at the same time every day. You may find it helpful to set an alarm on your watch or phone to remind you to take your medication. 

Each pill in the pack is marked with a day of the week to help you keep track of your cycle. If you are starting the pill for the first time, you should take it on the first day of your period so as to be protected instantly.

Why are there 21 pills in a pack?

Logynon is a triphasic pill, meaning that over the course of three weeks, it overrides your normal hormone cycle. You should take the pill every day for 21 days before stopping for a 7-day pill break. You will still be protected during this week, and may experience light bleeding. As the hormones in Logynon mimic those of your natural cycle and contain varying levels of hormones, it is important to take them in the correct order. Each pack contains six light-brown, five white and ten red tablets, to be taken in the order marked on your pack.

What happens if I forget to take my pill?

If you forget to take one tablet and it has been less than twelve hours since you were supposed to take it, take the missed tablet immediately. You can then continue as normal and should still be protected.

If more than twelve hours have passed since you were meant to take your tablet and you have over a week of your pack left, take the tablet immediately, then continue taking your pill as normal. You need to use additional protection (e.g. condoms) for seven days afterwards. 

If you have missed more than one tablet or have fewer than seven days left, please check the leaflet included with your pills for further advice.

Please note: If you experience vomiting or severe diarrhoea within two hours of taking your pill, this may reduce its efficacy. If this happens, read the patient leaflet for further instructions or ask your doctor for advice.
