Logynon

Oral medication

Logynon is a phasic 21-day contraceptive pill containing the active ingredients ethinylestradiol and levonorgestrel. Logynon helps to make it harder for the sperm to penetrate the womb and to reduce the chance of a fertilised egg implanting in the womb. It is over 99% effective at preventing pregnancy if taken correctly.

Medication effect duration

Logynon is a prescription only medicine, like any other prescription medication you must consult a doctor before using it.
