How does Logynon work?
Levels of sex hormones change throughout the month when women have their usual menstrual cycle. The hormones cause the ovaries to release an egg, this process is known as ovulation and prepares the lining of the womb for possible pregnancy. If an egg hasn’t been fertilised at the end of the cycle, the hormones will drop and you will experience your monthly menstrual bleed.
When you take the pill on a daily basis, it contains hormones, which tricks your body into thinking you have already ovulated. This stops an egg from being fertilised and being released from the ovaries every month. Hormones will also increase the texture of mucus on the opening of your womb making it harder for sperm to reach an egg, which can result in pregnancy.
How do I take Logynon?
For the first 6 days of your period women should take the brown pill followed by the white tablet for the next 5 days and then ten tan coloured pills.
