What are the benefits of using Loestrin contraceptive pills?
Loestrin pills provide you with immediate contraceptive coverage if taken on the first day of your period. If you do not take it on the first day of your period, you can still take it up until the fifth day of bleeding. However, if you wait for the fifth day, it will take up to seven days before you are fully protected against pregnancy.
Loestrin contraceptive pills can help to reduce period pain, because they stop ovulation and your period doesn't happen as usual. Loestrin can also help to better regulate your periods and shorten long, painful periods.
How do Loestrin pills work?
Loestrin pills provide comprehensive three-way protection against pregnancy, because they contains both artificial oestrogen and progestogen. Firstly, this contraceptive works to stop ovulation by naturally making the body believe that an egg has already been released. Secondly, because the body believes that ovulation has already occurred, the hormones that thicken the womb lining don't get released. And thirdly, it thickens the liquid in the cervix and makes it more difficult for sperm to make it into the womb.

How do you take Loestrin contraceptive pills?
For immediate protection, you should take Loestrin pills on the first day of your period. It can be taken up to the fifth day in your cycle; however you will then have to wait seven days for the pill to be effective. These contraceptive pills are monophasic, which means that you take the pills for 21 days and then have a seven-day pill-free period, during which you will still be protected against pregnancy. Your body will remove the artificial hormones from the pill over the seven days through a withdrawal bleed.
What are the side effects?
Loestrin is a prescription medication, so it is likely that some women may develop side effects if they are not as tolerant of the ingredients as others. However, any side effects should go away once your body has become accustomed to the hormones.
