What is Loestrin?

Loestrin is a combined oral contraceptive that is over 99% effective and available in two dosage strengths: Loestrin 20 and Loestrin 30. Both pills work in the same way - to change the environment of your reproductive system so it’s almost impossible for you to conceive - but one contains a lower dosage of hormones than the other.

Loestrin treats acne, helps with pelvic inflammatory disease and can reduce ovarian cysts. Whether you’re prescribed the stronger or lower dose of the Loestrin pill will depend on your medical condition, and how you respond to hormones.

If you want to buy the Loestrin pill, you may be able to from HealthExpress.eu if you complete a consultation. This takes just a few minutes, and a doctor will usually review the consultation within the hour, which makes it a quick and easy process. This ensures it’s safe for you to use Loestrin.

What are the benefits of Loestrin?

The Loestrin pill is known to treat acne and reduce pelvic inflammatory disease. It can also reduce ovarian cysts. Loestrin 20 delivers a lower dose of hormones to the body, which is perfect for people who have developed side effects when using other contraceptives.

Other benefits of the contraceptive pill include regular, lighter and less painful periods, improved premenstrual symptoms and a reduced risk of cancer of the ovary, womb and colon if used over long periods of time.

How does it work?

The Loestrin pill contains an artificial oestrogen called ethinylestradiol and an artificial progestogen called norethisterone. These hormones work together to prevent conception by changing the environment of your reproductive system.

The oestrogen stops your ovaries from releasing a mature egg into the womb by tricking the body into thinking this process, known as ovulation, has already occurred. This means there is no egg to be fertilised.

The progestogen thickens the mucous in the cervix which makes it difficult for sperm to reach the womb. It also prevents the womb lining from thickening, which means that if an egg had been fertilised, it wouldn’t be able to develop and conception is prevented.

These three actions make it almost impossible for you to conceive, and result in over 99% effectiveness in preventing pregnancy.

Who can take it?

If you are aged between 18 and 35 and a non-smoker, you may be able to use the Loestrin pill. Certain conditions may prevent you from using this contraceptive, though this is decided on a case by case basis. These include a history or existing case of heart, liver or circulation problems; a stroke; high blood pressure; or varicose veins.

Some medications may become ineffective if taken with the Loestrin pill, or may stop this contraceptive from working properly. For this reason, you should tell your doctor if you’re taking any other medication.

How do you take Loestrin?

Your doctor will probably advise that you take one Loestrin pill at the same time every day for 21 days. After this you’ll have a week’s break from taking the pill, during which you’ll still be protected from pregnancy but may experience a withdrawal bleed.

If you forget three or more pills, Loestrin will no longer be effective. If this happens you should discard the missed pills, continue with the pack as usual and use another contraceptive for seven days.

Are there any side effects?

If you take the Loestrin pill and develop side effects, they will usually be mild and disappear with time as your body adjusts to the new hormone balance. Using Loestrin 20 will reduce your risk of developing side effects.

Loestrin may cause an allergy-type rash, reduce your libido or make you less tolerant of carbohydrates, though these side effects are uncommon. More general and common side effects, associated with using the pill include nausea, vomiting, breast tenderness, weight changes, water retention and thrush.
