Logynon (Logynon ED) is a clinically proven triphasic combined contraceptive taken to effectively prevent pregnancy. This contraceptive contains the active ingredients ethinylestradiol and levonorgestrel and is taken orally once a day for 21 days (followed by a 7-day break) in the form of a 50mcg / 30mcg pill. The triphasic nature of this medication allows you to take different doses of hormones at different stages of the menstrual cycle, mimicking the natural changes in hormonal levels during the cycle.
Logynon contraceptive pills can also effectively treat endometriosis, help with premenstrual dysphoric disorder and alleviate painful or uncomfortable premenstrual symptoms. This includes heavy bleeding and irregular or painful periods.
The main action of Logynon is to stop ovulation every month. As with any other contraceptive, Logynon administration is recommended for three weeks followed by a seven-day break from pill taking. During this week, withdrawal takes place. While on 'the pill', your periods will become significantly lighter, shorter in duration and less painful.
Due to the hormonal concentration in its molecule, Logynon is responsible for thickening out the natural fluid at the neck of the womb, thus preventing the sperm to 'swim' through the vagina into the womb and fertilise the egg. The tablet also acts on the womb lining (endometrium) by altering its quality and reducing the chances that a fertilised egg can implant in the womb wall.
Logynon is a triphasic pill, meaning that each tablet has a slightly different dose of hormones in its molecule. The product comes in a user-friendly 21-day pack marked with the days of the calendar. The pack contains three different types of tablets that can be easily distinguished by colour.
To ensure optimal results, you must follow the sequence indicated on the pack, starting with the light brown tablet bearing the '1' marking. The recommended dosage is one tablet daily for 21 days followed by seven days pill-free. In this time interval, the hormonal levels in your blood drop and you will experience normal period-like bleeding. You should start the next pack immediately after the lapse of the seven days off-pill regardless of whether the bleeding has ceased or not.
You should take the pill every day at the same time so as not to forget and miss out any. Swallow each tablet with a sufficient amount of water or any other drink, with or without food.
It is ideal that you start taking the pill from the first day of your period. This will guarantee immediate protection without any additional methods of contraception. You may however start taking Logynon at any other time in your menstrual cycle (between day 2 and 5) provided that any probability of pregnancy has been ruled out by your physician. Even if you do not start contraceptive treatment from day 1 of your menstrual cycle, you will still enjoy protection without extra precautions. If you naturally have a short-lasting period, a fifth day contraceptive treatment start may delay full efficacy of the drug. In this case you should use additional non-hormonal contraceptive methods, such as condoms or not have sex for the first seven days of starting the pill.
If you miss a pill, take it as soon as you remember. It is best if you take it within 12 hours of the usual time to make sure you are fully protected against undesired pregnancy, even if this means taking two pills the same day. Afterwards, you can continue taking the pill as per the usual routine. You will be fully protected and won't need to use any alternative contraceptive solutions.
If you miss more than one pill and the delays exceed a 24-hour interval, then additional protective methods are necessary. In this case, take only the last pill that you missed and leave out the other tablets you forgot to take. It is advisable to use other non-hormonal methods, excluding the rhythm and temperature methods, for the next seven days taking the tablets correctly. If the number of the remaining tablets in the pack after the last missed pill is fewer than seven, you should finish the pack and immediately start the new one skipping the pill-free week. If the number of pills remaining in the pack after the last missed tablet is seven or more, then finish the pack and take your usual seven-day pill break before starting a new pack. In case you need to skip the week break, no withdrawal bleeding is to be expected before the next pack of tablets is finished.
If you had unprotected sex the week before you missed taking your pill(s), you may need to consider emergency contraception (the morning after pill) to rule out any likelihood of pregnancy.
Similarly to other prescription medications, you may experience side effects when taking Logynon tablets to prevent pregnancy. These side effects tend to be mild in nature and the likelihood of experiencing side effects is reduced because Logynon is a triphasic medication.
Side effects of Logynon may include:
Other side-effects may include headaches, migraines, abdominal pain, weight gain, breast enlargement and tenderness, depression, formation of blood clots, fluid retention, vaginal thrush, menstrual changes, skin reactions, a low libido, a rise in blood pressure, gallstones, liver function disturbance, chloasma, menstrual spotting or breakthrough bleeding.
If you do experience any of the side effects listed above and they persist you should speak with your doctor to seek medical advice.
Logynon is not recommended if:
If you have recently given birth, you can start taking Logynon on day 21 after childbirth provided that you are not breastfeeding. The tablet will have immediate action offering you protection against pregnancy from the first day of use without other barrier methods being necessary. If you start taking it later than 21 days post-partum, you will need to use extra protection for the first seven days.
In the case of miscarriage or abortion in the first trimester, you can take the pill immediately and be assured of its immediate protective effect. If you start taking this contraceptive seven days after the miscarriage or abortion episode, you will need to use additional contraception for the first seven days.
Due to its composition, Logynon may increase your blood pressure and influence blood clotting. Therefore, it is important to inform you physician about any medication you have already been taking or are planning to take, including natural remedies or any other non prescribed medicine.
The following drugs will accelerate decomposition of the hormonal components in this contraceptive by the liver lowering chances of protection against pregnancy:
Antibiotic drug therapy in general will make the pill ineffective, especially rifampicin and rifabutin. If you are taking any antibiotics it is best to seek specialist advice and consider an additional method of contraception (condoms or spermicides). Similarly, if you are taking Ellaone as an emergency contraception alternative while still on Logynon, consult your physician and use an additional barrier method for the next 14 days after intake.
If you are on any diuretic drug treatment, thyroid hormonal therapy, diabetes or cardiovascular medication (see above) seek medical advice for a suitable alternative to Logynon.
