How does Loestrin work?

As a combined oral contraceptive, Loestrin contains synthetic forms of both oestrogen and progestogen. This means that it is slightly more effective than some of the progestogen only mini-pills that are available. Combined contraceptive treatments work by manipulating the female menstrual cycle to prevent pregnancy. With almost complete success at doing so, Loestrin is one of the most effective contraceptive methods available.

Loestrin, like other combined contraceptive pills, works to prevent pregnancy in three separate ways. One of the main effects of this treatment is that it tricks the body into believing that an egg has been released. During the female cycle, the levels of naturally occurring hormones change, causing an egg to be released by the ovaries in a process that is known as ovulation. By making the body think ovulation has already occurred, Loestrin prevents this from happening.

Loestrin also works in some other ways to prevent pregnancy. This treatment alters the lining of the womb, which is where potential eggs would develop. This has the effect of making the environment inhospitable for any eggs that may be released. Loestrin also increases the thickness of the naturally occurring vaginal fluids, making it almost impossible for sperm to enter the womb. This three-stage approach makes Loestrin an effective hormonal contraceptive treatment for women.

What are the benefits of Loestrin?

This treatment offers over 99% protection against pregnancy. This means that when you use Loestrin correctly, you will have less than a 1% chance of falling pregnant. This medication also has a lower dosage of hormones than some of its counterparts, which makes it suitable for women who may have experienced side effects from some of the other combined contraceptive pills.

Loestrin can also benefit women who are experiencing heavy or painful bleeds. Most combined contraceptive pills usually cause lighter and more regular menstrual bleeding. Loestrin can also have a positive effect on acne, with women using this medication displaying a reduction in the visible symptoms of this condition.

Who can use Loestrin?

As this treatment contains a lower dosage of hormones, women who may be sensitive to some of the other combined pills can use it. This treatment can used by the majority of healthy women who are over the age of 18 and who would like to use a hormonal contraceptive method.

There are women who may not be suitable for Loestrin. Women who are either pregnant or breast-feeding should not use this treatment. It should also not be used by women over the age of 50. If you have reached 50 and are not yet at menopause, you should consult with your doctor to find the right contraceptive treatment for you.

You may also not be suitable for Loestrin if you have a history of severe diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, severe migraines or unexplained vaginal bleeding. You must include any conditions that you are currently suffering from on the online medical form that you will complete as part of the ordering process. Some medications may reduce the effectiveness of this treatment, so include any medications that you are currently taking.

How do you use Loestrin?

Loestrin is a monophasic contraceptive pill, which means that each tablet contains the same dosage of hormones. As with other combined contraceptive pills, you will need to take one tablet a day for a 21 day period, which is then followed by a seven-day break. You may experience a withdrawal bleed during this break but you will still be protected from pregnancy. You should ensure that you take each Loestrin pill at roughly the same time each day.

This treatment is only effective when taken as per the instructions. You should ensure that you do not miss any days and take each pill at the correct time. When you buy Loestrin online at 121doc, you will be provided with the patient leaflet for this medication. You should read this leaflet before beginning the treatment, as it contains detailed instructions on how and when to take this pill. You should refer to this leaflet for instructions on what to do if you miss a pill. You are able to download this patient leaflet from our website at any point.

Are there any side effects?

As this medication contains a lower dosage of hormones, it is generally very well tolerated. As with all prescription medication, there is a risk of side effects in very rare cases. These can include nausea, headaches, breast tenderness, weight fluctuations and irregular bleeding. These side effects are normally temporary and should pass within a few weeks. If you experience anything that causes you significant discomfort when using Loestrin, you should immediately consult with your doctor.
