“Logynon - A Reliable Choice.”

published 19/07/2004

Reassuringly regular periods

Not suitable for "tricycling"

Logynon is a 21 day contraceptive pill system. I have been using it for nine years, and I haven't got pregnant yet, so something must be working! Logynon comes in a white box with yellow and brown graphics, and is available on prescription. Each box contains three months supply although if your...

“Logynon and Depression”

You won't get pregnant

Does not bode well for depression

I too have been suffering depression since going on Logynon. I am 36 and was taken off the combined pill last year and put on the mini pill. I suffered extremely bad acne on my back as a side effect, (imagine, acne at my age!) so I asked if I could go onto a different pill. As I had given up...

Regulates periods

periods can sometimes last 5-7 days

I started taking this combined pill when I was 14. I found it easy to use and it made my periods lighter though they do last 5-7 days usually. However I rarely suffer period pains such as head aches or other pains. The only side affect I felt was weight gain though I think that is a common effect...

Question

published 26/04/2014

I'm taking this pill just finish a pack today when do I have to start another pack
Open question Answer

Answer

published 30/05/2014

Your packet of tablets will be grouped at 21 a pack, which you should take at the same time every day for 21 days, either morning or evening, MAKE IT A HABIT. Leaving you a 7 day break in between packs, your cycle will start sometime within these 7 days, do not be surprised if it does not start straight away, BUT on the 8th day you need to resume taking the next pack, you need to do this even if your cycle has not started. Your body will settle.

I have been on this pill for 7 days now and have had worse nausea that morning sickness - going to go to the doctor and find another pill. Also finding it is causing similar tension to PMT. Not nice
