Logynon is a prescription contraceptive pill. It contains two artificial hormones which mimic the activity of natural hormones in the body, which regulate ovulation and other reproductive functions. The product is made by Bayer, and is available as a standard 21-pill-per-month course, or as an ED course (28 pills).
- Simple-to-use one a day pill
- Branded pill marketed by Bayer
- Prevents pregnancy in 99% of cases
The standard 21-pill version is taken each day consecutively for 3 weeks, and is followed by a seven day rest period. In the ED pack, seven non-functioning tablets are supplied in addition to the 21 functional tablets, and taken during the one-week rest period. The ED version is intended for those who prefer not to have a seven day gap and take their pill every day of the month.
To explain how Logynon works, it is first necessary to know how pregnancy begins. Each month, the female body goes through a period called ‘ovulation’. This is the process by which the ovaries produce an egg and release it into the womb. It is managed by the hormone progesterone.
When the female receives sperm from her male partner during sex, this sperm then travels to the egg and attempts to penetrate it. Once an egg is successfully breached by the sperm, it becomes fertilised. The impregnated egg then travels along the fallopian tubes to the uterus, where it attaches to the endometrium (uterine wall) and starts to develop into a baby.
If fertilisation does not occur, the egg simply breaks down in the uterus, and the endometrium sheds its lining. This shedding is regulated by a hormone released from the ovary called oestrogen, and results in the periodic discharge we refer to as menstrual bleeding.
The active constituents in Logynon are: levonorgestrel, which replicates the action of progesterone; and ethinylestradiol, which simulates the activity of oestrogen. Collectively, these agents work to prevent pregnancy in three specific ways, by: inhibiting the release of eggs from the ovary; concentrating the consistency of vaginal fluid so that sperm cannot travel to an egg as easily; and altering conditions along the uterine wall, so that an egg cannot implant there.
