Loestrin 30

By: Rex Inego | May 26, 2009 05:15 AM

Used for contraception, Loestrin 30 contains 2 active ingredients-ethinylestradiol and norethisterone, the synthetic versions of oestrogen and progesterone respectively.

By taking this pill on the day-one of menstrual cycle till 21 days, for 100% protection against pregnancy, it prevents ovulation successfully.

Pros: It offers better protection against unwanted pregnancy when taken as per instructions. Available in calendar pack, complete protection is ensured when taken for 3 weeks and left off for 1 week! It results in lighter, less painful and more regular menstruation and can be taken as the prescription medicine for women suffering from severe heavy, painful or irregular periods!

cons: Not recommended for women suffering from hypertension, diabetes mellitus, varicose veins, sickle cell disease, inflammatory bowel disease, heart failure and has history of breast cancer, gall stones, severe depression, migraines, liver disease and heart failure. Pregnant women should avoid it as are breast-feeding women and continuous usage for more than 5 years may lead to cervical cancer.

conclusion: Though it offers superb protection against unwanted pregnancy, it is best to avoid its usage as after effects are high and varied. Not recommended for women over 35 years, a doctor needs to be consulted before beginning the usage.
