Description

What is Lucette and what is it used for?

Lucette is a combined contraceptive pill that is primarily used to prevent pregnancy. It contains ethinylestradiol and drospirenone, which are synthetic versions of that female body’s natural sex hormones, oestrogen and progesterone. If taken according to the instructions, Lucette is 99% effective at preventing pregnancy and can help to make periods lighter, less painful and more regular. It can also help reduce symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS).

Lucette pill & acne

Some women who take Lucette, who have previously struggled with acne or spots, notice an improvement in the condition of their skin while taking this contraceptive pill. This is because the hormones in Lucette help to regulate the production of oil by the skin, preventing pores from becoming blocked.

Lucette pill benefits

With all types of contraception, they have both benefits and drawbacks, and these are not always the same for everyone.

Women who take a combined contraceptive pill such as Lucette find that some of the advantages of taking it are that:

Sex is not interrupted

Periods are more regular, lighter and less painful

Symptoms of PMS are more manageable

Acne is improved

How does Lucette work?

Each Lucette pill contains both synthetic oestrogen and progesterone which are taken for 21 days with a 7-day pill-free break. These hormones work together to stop you from becoming pregnant by preventing your ovaries from releasing an egg.

They also increase the amount of mucus around the cervix, making it hard for sperm to reach the egg and make it hard for a fertilised egg to implant in the uterus.

Lucette vs Yasmin

Both Lucette and Yasmin are combined contraceptive pills, containing the same active ingredients in the same amounts. They are named differently because they are produced by different manufacturers.

The only variation between Lucette and Yasmin is that Lucette tablets contain soy lecithin, so they may be unsuitable for some women with soy allergies.

Lucette pill and weight gain

It is rumoured that Lucette, like other contraceptive pills, can cause you to gain weight. There is, however, no evidence that has indicated that there is a genuine link between hormonal contraception and weight gain.

Hormonal contraception can affect people differently and if you are concerned about gaining weight or any other side effects whilst taking Lucette you should speak to a doctor, pharmacist or nurse for advice.
