Logynon

Logynon tablets are a type of hormonal contraception commonly known as 'the pill' or combined oral contraceptive pill. Logynon tablets contain two active ingredients, ethinylestradiol and levonorgestrel. These are synthetic versions of the naturally occurring female sex hormones, oestrogen and progesterone. Ethinylestradiol (previously spelt ethinyloestradiol in the UK) is a synthetic version of oestrogen and levonorgestrel is a synthetic form of progesterone. Logynon is a triphasic pill. This means that each 21 day pack contains three types of tablets, each with a slightly different dose of hormones in it. The six light brown tablets contain 30 micrograms ethinylestradiol and 50 micrograms levonorgestrel, the five white tablets contain 40 micrograms ethinylestradiol and 75 micrograms levonorgestrel, and the ten ochre tablets contain 30 micrograms ethinylestradiol and 125 micrograms levonorgestrel.
