Buy Lucette Contraceptive Pills Online in the UK
Lucette is a combination contraceptive pill and is used to prevent pregnancy each pack contains 3 x 21 strips - one daily then a 7-day pill-free break. There is 0.03 mg ethinylestradiol and 3 mg drospirenone per tablet.
It has two active components: drospirenone and ethinylestradiol. These are artificial forms of the female hormones progesterone and oestrogen, which can control the menstrual cycle.
Lucette's feminine hormones function in three different ways:
- the ovaries are prevented from releasing an egg (ovulation)
- to make the mucus around the cervix thicker. By doing this, sperm have a tough time moving, which prevents them from reaching an egg
- making the womb's lining unsuitable for an egg to implant is the third method
This kind of pill will offer immediate protection against pregnancy if used between the first and fifth day of the beginning of your monthly cycle.
If started after this time, additional barrier methods of contraception, such as condoms, should be used for at least seven days to provide complete protection.
If you begin taking tablets on the first day of your period, the recommended course is:
One tablet is taken daily around the same time (for best effect) for 21 continual days.
After then, there is a seven-day resting period. You might experience withdrawal bleeding at this time, although it will often be lighter than your regular period. You still have seven days of pregnancy protection throughout this time.
