Where to Buy Logynon online in UK?

You can buy Logynon online from UK licensed Ashcroft Pharmacy. Just fill out a quick online medical questionnaire form. Our pharmacist will check your order, and if Logynon is right for you, you'll get your medication as soon as the next working day (if this option is selected).

Ashcroft Pharmacy offers all brands of contraceptive pills, including combined pills and mini pills. Combined pills have two hormones: oestrogen and progestogen. Mini pills only have progestogen.

Logynon combined pill

Logynon is an oral contraceptive pill that mimics your natural menstrual cycle to prevent pregnancy. Logynon is a triphasic combined pill meaning it has 3 different doses of progestin and estrogen that adjusts every 7 days.

The triphasic pill contains 2 active ingredients ethinylestradiol and levonorgestrel. The two active ingredients control hormone levels (estrogen and progesterone) during the menstrual cycle.

How effective is Logynon?

Logynon is a reliable contraceptive treatment as it is 99% effective in pregnancy prevention only if taken the right way. Follow the patient leaflet found in your contraceptive pill packet to understand how to take the pills.

How does Logynon work?

Logynon contains 2 active ingredients that work as natural hormones (progestin and estrogen) to protect you from pregnancy.

The triphasic pill contains 3 different levels of hormones. The hormonal levels change throughout the 21-day pack.

The pill protects you from pregnancy by,

Stopping ovulation: Ovulation is the release of an egg from the ovary. The synthetic hormones work by preventing the ovaries from releasing an egg.

Inhibiting implantation: It makes the lining of the uterus thin therefore a fertilized egg cannot attach itself to the uterus.

Preventing sperm movement to the uterus: The synthetic hormones thicken the cervical mucus to prevent sperm from swimming towards the uterus.

How to take Logynon?

When do I start taking Logynon?

Lognynon should be taken on the first day of your period to the fifth day after the beginning of your period to be protected from pregnancy.

Taking the birth control pill after the fifth day can put you at risk of getting pregnant. You should use a barrier contraceptive such as a condom for 7 days.

Remember to take a pregnancy test if you happen to have had unprotected sex before starting your pill for the first 7 days. 

Below is how you should take Logynon pills?

  • Take a pill at the same time every day
  • Follow the number/colors/arrows on the strip to take the right pill daily.
  • Mark the day you have taken your first pill.

The contraceptive treatment contains 21 pills, always ensure that you've taken your last pill on the 21st day.

Taking a Break:

  • After taking 21 active pills, take a 7-day break from Logynon.
  • You will likely have a withdrawal bleed during this break, similar to a period.

Important Note: Even though you're not taking hormones during the break, you are still protected from pregnancy for those 7 days as long as you've taken all 21 pills correctly.

Starting Your Next Pack:

After the 7-day break, regardless of whether your bleeding has stopped, begin the next pack of Logynon on the 8th day. This ensures consistent hormone levels and continued protection against pregnancy.

What to Do If You Vomit or Have Severe Diarrhoea?

Severe Diarrhea and vomiting can put you at risk of getting pregnant even while taking Logynon pills.

Timing is Crucial:

If you vomit within 3 to 4 hours of taking an active pill (light brown, small white, or ochre), or if you have severe diarrhoea, the active ingredients may not have been fully absorbed.

Missed Dose Protocol: This situation is similar to missing a dose. Follow the instructions provided for missed tablets to ensure continuous contraceptive protection.

Additionally:

Remember to use condoms to protect yourself from getting pregnant, for the next 48 hours. For best advice, consult your doctor or pharmacist about managing birth control use during illness.

What happens if I take the pill in the wrong order?

The effect of taking a birth control pill in the wrong order depends on the type of pill you're on:

Combination pills:

These pills have both estrogen and progestin. Most combination pills come in 28-day packs with 21 active pills and 7 inactive pills. Missing an active pill or taking an inactive pill instead can decrease your protection from pregnancy.

Progestin-only pills (minipills):

Missing a progestin-only pill by more than 3 hours can decrease your protection from pregnancy.

What to do?

If you take an inactive pill instead of an active one, it's like missing a pill. Take the active pill you missed as soon as you remember, and then take your next pill at the regular time. If you're unsure what to do, refer to the Patient Leaflet that came with your pill pack or contact your doctor or pharmacist.

(see also the diagram):

Image of a Diagram for what If you forget to take combined pills dosage

Less Than 12 Hours Late?

  • Action: Take the tablet as soon as you remember.
  • Effect: No reduction in protection against pregnancy.

If More Than 12 Hours Late?

If you are more than 12 hours late taking a Logynon tablet during days 1-7, take the missed tablet as soon as you remember, even if it means taking two tablets at once.

Continue taking the next tablets at the usual time. Use a barrier method, like a condom, for the next 7 days. If you had sex in the 7 days before missing the tablet, there is a higher risk of pregnancy.

The more tablets you miss and the closer you are to the tablet-free break, the higher the risk of pregnancy. If this happens, consult your doctor.

If you're more than 12 hours late taking your pill during days 1-7:

  • Take the missed pill immediately, even if it means two at once.
  • Use backup contraception (like condoms) for 7 days.
  • Consider pregnancy risk, especially if you had sex recently.
  • See your doctor if you miss multiple pills or are worried about pregnancy.

If you're over 12 hours late taking your pill between days 8 and 14:

  • Take the missed pill immediately, even if it means taking two together.
  • If you've taken the pills correctly for the 7 days before the first missed one, you don't need extra contraception.
  • If you haven't taken them correctly or missed more than one, use extra contraception for the next 7 days.

If you're more than 12 hours late during days 15-21:

  • The closer you are to the tablet-free break, the higher the pregnancy risk.

If you're late taking your birth control pill by more than 12 hours between days 15 and 21 of your cycle, your chance of getting pregnant goes up, especially near the 7-day break. But don't worry! You can still prevent pregnancy by adjusting the dosage.

If you follow the advice given, and you've taken all your pills correctly in the 7 days before the first missed one, you don't need extra contraceptive precautions. But if you haven't, it's best to use extra precautions for the next 7 days.

What to do?

  1. If you miss a pill, take it as soon as you remember, even if it means taking two at once. Then keep taking the rest of your pills at your regular times.  Instead of taking a 7-day break, start your next pack right away. You might not get your period until the end of the second pack, but you might have some light bleeding or spotting.

  2. If you prefer, you can stop taking the pills from your current pack and have a 7-day break, including the days you missed pills, then start the next pack.

Remember, if you miss more than one pill and don't get your period during the first break, there's a chance you could be pregnant, so it's a good idea to take a pregnancy test.

Delaying your period: what you need to know

Can I delay my period while taking Logynon? Yes, you can. Although it's not recommended, you can delay your period by continuing with the last ten tablets of another pack of Logynon immediately after finishing your current pack.

You can extend this for up to ten days, until the end of your second pack. You might experience spotting or breakthrough bleeding while using the second pack.

After finishing the second pack, you must have a 7-day tablet-free break. It’s best to consult your doctor before deciding to delay your period.

Changing the first day of your menstrual period: what you need to know

If you want to change the starting day of your period, you can shorten your next tablet-free break by as many days as you like.

The shorter the break, the higher the risk of no withdrawal bleed and experiencing breakthrough bleeding and spotting during the second pack. Never lengthen your tablet-free break. If you’re unsure what to do, talk to your doctor.

If you want to stop taking Logynon

You can stop taking Logynon whenever you want. If you don’t want to become pregnant, ask your doctor about other reliable birth control methods.

If you want to become pregnant, stop taking Logynon and wait for a menstrual period before trying to conceive. This will help you calculate the expected delivery date more easily.\
