Eloine is an effective combined contraceptive pill that has a slightly lower dose of oestrogen.
It contains a natural form of oestrogen (called ethinylestradiol) and a synthetic version of progesterone (called drospirenone).
Due to its lower dose of oestrogen, some women favour this version of the combined pill as it can result in fewer side effects.
It can also be used to treat moderate acne or premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), which is a severe form of premenstrual syndrome (PMS).
Eloine is a UK version of the combined pill known as Yaz. Both Eloine and Yaz contain the exact same ingredients and work in an identical manner.
Yaz is sometimes confused with another type of combined pill called Yasmin. Whilst both of these contain the same ingredients, Yasmin contains slightly higher levels of oestrogen.
Eloine works to prevent pregnancy in 3 different ways. These include:
The hormones in Eloine disrupt your natural menstrual cycle and period. By no longer releasing an egg into the uterus, there is no possibility of a sperm cell fertilising.
Please note: Taking the combined pill is a reversible type of birth control. Whilst you cannot get pregnant while correctly taking the pill, your fertility will return to normal once you stop the hormonal treatment.
When taken correctly, Eloine is 99% effective at preventing pregnancies.
However, if you miss a pill your chances of getting pregnant increase.
Some women opt for other types of contraception such as the coil, or hormonal injection so that they don’t have to rely on taking a daily pill.
If you experience vomiting or diarrhoea, your daily pill may not have been fully absorbed which could reduce efficiency.
Take another pill if you vomit or have severe diarrhoea within 3 hours of taking your pill, and continue your next regular dose the following day.
Like other birth control pills, Eloine pills must be taken once a day (preferably at the same time each day as this helps to build a habit).
Each strip contains:
Following the directions of the arrows on the blister strip, take 1 pill every day for 28 days. The last 4 pills are placebo pills - during this time you may have a light withdrawal bleed.
As the pack includes placebo pills, you won’t need to take a pill break. Each strip of pills should be taken back to back.
The majority of women and teens (who are menstruating) can take this version of the combined pill. However, you may not be suitable for Eloine if you:
Always notify your doctor of any health conditions you have, as well as any other medications you are taking.
They will only prescribe Eloine if you are suitable to take it.
If you are starting a hormonal contraceptive for the first time, you should ideally start taking Eloine within the first 5 days of your period.
This way you will be protected from pregnancy straight away, and no further contraception will be needed (unless you are having sex with a new partner due to risk of STIs).
Or, you can choose to start taking Eloine any other time during your cycle. However, in this case you will need to use extra contraception for the first 7 days as you will not be protected against pregnancy.
If you are switching from another form of pill, don’t leave a gap in between or you will also require extra contraception during your first 7 days of taking Eloine.
Eloine has other benefits aside from preventing pregnancy. By being on the combined pill, you can benefit from:
Eloine also offers a benefit of lesser side effects, due to its lower level of oestrogen (compared with other types of the combined pill).
Eloine can be offered as an acne treatment to women who are looking to take oral contraceptives. However, unlike Dianette (which is solely aimed at treating acne), Eloine is an effective form of birth control.
Due to the hormone drospirenone, Eloine can also be used to manage symptoms of PMDD.
Due to the lower dose of oestrogen, some women may experience some irregular, light bleeding as a side effect. Consult your doctor if this persists for more than a few months.
Other possible side effects include:
If you struggle with any side effects for a prolonged time, consult your doctor and consider trying a different type of hormonal contraceptive.
Compared to other combined pills, Eloine has a slightly higher risk of developing blood clots.
Whilst the risk is still very small, it is important to tell your doctor if you have any family history of cardiovascular diseases or blood clots to ensure your safety while taking hormonal contraceptives.
