What is Logynon?

Logynon is a branded combined contraceptive pill that protects you from getting pregnant.

It’s known as a ‘triphasic’ pill, which are those that contain three different dosages of progesterone and oestrogen that you take for 21 days, followed by a 7-day break in which you take no pills. Triphasic pills often produce less side effects.

The 21 active pills are three different colours, for each of the three dosages. Six are light brown (containing 30/50 micrograms of ethinylestradiol and levonorgestrel), five are white (containing 40/75 micrograms of ethinylestradiol and levonorgestrel) and 10 are yellow, containing 30/125 micrograms of ethinylestradiol and levonorgestrel).

As a triphasic pill, because it contains different amounts of hormones and mimics the body’s natural cycle very closely, it’s very important that Logynon pills are taken in the correct order.

What is Logynon ED?

Logynon ED is a 28-day combined contraceptive pill. Because it contains 28 pills (21 active pills and 7 inactive pills), rather than just 21 active pills, as is the case with Logynon, it may be a more convenient option for women who would prefer not to have a 7-day break from taking pills.

How effective is Logynon?

When it’s used perfectly, Logynon is more than 99% effective at stopping you from becoming pregnant. So out of 100 women taking it correctly over 12 months, less than one will get pregnant.

But if you miss a pill from time to time or if you use it in error, your risk of pregnancy increases slightly, typically to around 91%. To avoid this from happening, simply take Logynon once a day at the same time.

How to take Logynon pills

Each pill in the strip has a day of the week marked next to it, you should take each one on the day of the week that it corresponds with. Take one pill at the same time every day. It’s best to take your first pill on the first day of your period, as this will give you immediate protection from pregnancy.

Start by taking pill number 1, and mark that day of the week beneath the heading, ‘I took my first pill on’ by piercing the small, foil disc that isn’t numbered. This is there to help remind you of the day you started your strip on.

Follow the direction of the arrows on the strip until you have taken all 21 pills. You can swallow each pill whole with water if you prefer to, but don’t chew the pills. Once you’ve finished the strip, have 7 pill-free days. So if you take the final pill of a strip on a Friday, take the first pill of the next pack on the Saturday of the following week.

A couple of days after taking the last pill from the strip, you should get a withdrawal bleed, like a period. You may still be experiencing this bleed by the time you start your next strip of pills; this is absolutely fine and nothing to worry about. It’s important that you start your new strip on time.

So long as you’ve taken your pills correctly and start your next strip of pills when you should, you don’t need to use any additional contraception during your 7 pill-free days. If you’ve taken Logynon correctly, you’ll always start a new strip on the same day of the week.

Why are Logynon pills different colours?

Logynon strips contain three different dosages of hormones, these pills are in three different colours, to indicate to you which dosage is which.

Six pills are light brown (containing 30/50 micrograms of ethinylestradiol and levonorgestrel), five pills are white (containing 40/75 micrograms of ethinylestradiol and levonorgestrel) and 10 pills are yellow (containing 30/125 micrograms of ethinylestradiol and levonorgestrel).

Because the strips contain pills that have different quantities of hormones in them, it’s especially important to take them in the correct order (by following the arrow and days of the week on the strip), so that the pills can work effectively.

What to do about a Logynon missed pill

If less than 12 hours have passed since you missed a pill, take the pill you missed immediately and any further pill as you would normally, even if this means taking two pills at the same time. Your protection from pregnancy shouldn’t be affected.

Should you find that it’s been more than 12 hours since your missed pill, or if you’ve missed more than one pill, take the pill you missed most recently straight away. Leave any pills you missed earlier than this in the strip. Take any pills that follow at the usual time, even if you have to take two pills in one day. You’ll need to use extra contraception such as a condom for the next 7 days.

How we source info.

When we present you with stats, data, opinion or a consensus, we’ll tell you where this came from. And we’ll only present data as clinically reliable if it’s come from a reputable source, such as a state or government-funded health body, a peer-reviewed medical journal, or a recognised analytics or data body. Read more in our editorial policy.

FAQ: Logynon

Have something specific you want to know? Search our info below, or ask our experts a question if you can’t find what you’re looking for.

How does Logynon work?

Answer:
There are three ways in which Logynon gives you protection from pregnancy.

The two hormones in it stop the ovaries from releasing an egg during ovulation, and thicken the mucus in the neck of the womb, which makes it more difficult for sperm to reach an egg.

They also make the lining of the uterus thinner, which reduces the chances of a fertilised egg latching on to the uterine wall, which it needs to do in order to grow.

The combined pill tends to make your periods lighter, regular and less sore, so there are additional benefits to taking it too.

What’s the difference between Logynon and Logynon ED?

Answer:
Logynon is a 21 day-pill, whereas Logynon ED is a 28-day pill.

Both pills are made by Bayer, and both contain the same hormones that work in the same way in the body. The only difference is that you take Logynon for 21 days, and then take a 7-day break from it. With Logynon ED, once you’ve finished the 21 day course, you take 7 inactive pills (so 28 pills in total, making it a 28-day pill).

Some women prefer to stay in the routine of taking a pill every day, rather than taking a 7-day break, just to reduce the risks of ever forgetting a pill. The extra 7 placebo pills that you get with Logynon ED help to provide this security.

What ingredients are in Logynon?

Answer:
Logynon consists of two active ingredients, ethinylestradiol and levonorgestrel, which are artificial hormones that behave in the same way as oestrogen and progesterone in the body in preventing pregnancy.

It’s these ingredients that control the menstrual cycle and prevent pregnancies from occurring.

Can Logynon help treat acne?

Answer:
According to research, hormones in the combined pill can help to manage androgen levels in the body, which keeps the body’s production of sebum (an oily substance in the skin) in check. This in turn helps to keep the pores in the skin clearer, and reduces the number of spots you might get.

But some people find that the combined pill doesn’t help with acne, and it’s unlikely to fully clear the skin of acne altogether.

Logynon vs Microgynon: what’s the difference?

Answer:
Logynon and Microgynon 30 are both combined hormonal contraceptive pills, and both pills contain the same two hormones, ethinylestradiol and levonorgestrel. They also work in the same way in the body, and are even made by the same company: Bayer.

The difference is that Logynon is a triphasic pill, whereas Microgynon 30 is what’s called a monophasic pill, which just means that each pill has the same amount of hormones in it.

Like Logynon ED, which is the 28-day pill alternative to Logynon, there is also a 28-day option for Microgynon, Microgynon ED. So you can choose to take 21 active pills and then 7 placebo or non-active pills, rather than taking a 7-day pill-free break after 21 days.

In terms of which pill is best for you, it depends on how your body reacts to higher, lower or mixed dosage hormones. Our prescriber can help to guide you on this during your consultation, taking your medical background and any symptoms or side effects you’ve experienced previously with combined pills into account.

Is TriRegol the same as Logynon?

Answer:
The only difference between the TriRegol combined pill and Logynon is the manufacturer. TriRegol pills are made by Consilient Health, rather than by Bayer, so the packaging and the appearance of the pills won’t be the same.

But otherwise, both pills work in the same way, and you take them in the same way.
