Logynon ED is a combined contraceptive measure, commonly referred to as â€˜the pillâ€™ and they are taken to reduce the risk of pregnancy.
Logynon ED is a combined contraceptive pill which you take to prevent getting pregnant. It contains a progestogen hormone called levonorgestrel and an oestrogen hormone called ethinylestradiol, which work together to prevent an egg being released from your ovaries. Logynon ED also makes the mucus in your cervix thicker, making it difficult for sperm to reach the egg and prevents the lining of the womb from thickening enough to let an egg grow.
