About Product

What is Logynon?

Logynon is a combined hormonal oral contraceptive medicine available in a tablet form. It is commonly known as a birth control pill or simply 'the pill'. Logynon is used as a prevention against unwanted pregnancy, but certain other benefits are also associated with this pill.

  • Logynon is useful in regulation of irregular and heavy periods which may lead to anaemia due to heavy bleeding.
  • Logynon can make periods less painful
  • It can help with pre-menstrual symptoms
  • Chances of pelvic inflammatory disease, cyst formation in ovaries, ectopic pregnancy, acne, ovary and uterine cancer are decreased in women taking the pill.

When taken regularly, Logynon has an efficacy of 99% in preventing unwanted pregnancy.

If you are in need of the contraceptive pill but are unable to renew your prescription from your doctor, our online private prescription service can help. When you buy Logynon online from Prescription Doctor, we require you to complete a questionnaire for our doctor to review. This is to ensure that the medicine is safe for you. If our doctor approves your order, a prescription will be issued for our UK based pharmacy to fulfil.

All our medicines are approved by the MHRA and dispatched from a GPhC registered pharmacy via a next-day discreet delivery, ensuring your privacy when buying contraceptive pills online.


How does Logynon work?

Logynon contains two types of female sex hormones, oestrogen and progestogen.

The hormones work to protect you from getting pregnant by preventing the release of an egg from the ovaries. The pill thickens the mucus fluid present in the cervix and making it difficult for sperm to enter the uterus. Logynon tablets also reduce the chances of conception by altering the lining of the womb, which makes it less conducive for the implantation of the fertilised egg.


How do I take Logynon?

Take the first active pill from the section of the strip marked “start” and regularly take the pills for 21 days. Always take pills in the correct order marked by arrows and try to take pills at the same time without missing.

After completing 21 pills, stop taking the pills for the next seven days. You will have bleeding on these days like your regular periods. After the pill-free, week start a new pack on 8th day even if you have not stopped bleeding.

If you are taking Logynon for the first time start taking the pills on the first day of your periods and then complete the 21 pills cycle. By starting this way, no other contraception is needed.

But if you start taking tablets from 2nd to 5th day of your period, you may have to use a contraceptive method unless you have taken the pills for a consecutive seven days. This is because the contraceptive effect may be decreased if your menstrual cycle is lesser than 28 days.

If you are switching to Logynon pills from any other contraceptive pills, or are unfamiliar with contraceptive pills, consult your pharmacist or doctor for instructions first.

If you experience any side effects, regardless of whether they are listed above or in the patient leaflet, inform your doctor or speak to a pharmacist for advice.

Logynon contains lactose. If you are sensitive to some sugars, speak to your doctor before taking Logynon.

Other safety information

Always seek your doctor's advice before you buy Logynon online from Prescription Doctor.

Do not take Logynon past the expiry date printed on the packaging. The date refers to the last day of that month.

Do not throw away medicine via household or water waste. Take any unwanted or expired medicine to your local pharmacy and ask them to dispose of it safely on your behalf.

Frequently asked questions

What should I do if I miss Logynon pill

If you miss one pill but have already taken it within 12 hours, you are still protected against pregnancy. In case you do not remember to take a pill for 24 hours or have missed more than one pills then you should take it as soon as you remember even if you are taking two tablets at the same time.

If more than one pills are missed during your first week on the strip, then take the last missed pill and continue taking the next pills at the regular time. But you have to consider other contraception methods like condoms until you have taken tablets regularly for the next seven days.

If the missed pills are from the third week of the 21 days pill strip, then you should take the remaining pills and start the next pack, on the next day. It means that you are not going to have a pill-free week as well as no monthly period. You will have the periods at the end of the second pack.

What should I do if I accidentally take more Logynon than I should?

Taking one more Logynon pill than you should is unlikely to cause you harm, though you may feel sick, vomit or experience vaginal bleeding.

If you experience any of these symptoms, inform your doctor.

Can I take Alcohol with Logynon

While it is unlikely that alcohol will have an effect on the efficacy of Logynon, excessive alcohol consumption can cause vomiting. If you vomit shortly after taking Logynon, the medicine may not have been absorbed completely and thus the contraceptive effect is reduced.

Always drink responsibly. If you experience side effects which may be worsened by drinking alcohol, avoid or limit alcohol consumption.

Will Logynon affect my ability to drive or operate machines?

Logynon should not affect your ability to drive or operate machines.

If you experience dizziness or tiredness after taking Logynon, do not drive or operate machinery until you feel it is safe for you to do so.
