Lovima 75 Microgram
Lovima 75 Microgram is a daily hormonal contraceptive used to prevent pregnancy in women and adolescents of child bearing age.
There are 2 main kinds of hormonal contraceptive.
- The combined pill (COC), which contains 2 types of female sex hormone – an oestrogen and progestogen.
- The progestogen-only pill, POP or mini-pill, which doesn’t contain an oestrogen.
Lovima 75 Microgram is a progestogen-only pill (POP) or a mini-pill.
It contains a small amount of one type of female sex hormone, the progestogen desogestrel.
- Most POPs or mini-pills work primarily by preventing the sperm cells from entering the womb but do not always prevent the egg from ripening, which is the main way that combined pills work.
- Desogestrel is different from other mini-pills in that it works primarily by inhibition of ovulation (preventing the egg cell from ripening).
- In contrast to the combined pill, Lovima 75 Microgram can be used by women who do not tolerate oestrogens and by women who are breastfeeding.
- A disadvantage is that vaginal bleeding may occur at irregular intervals during the use of Lovima. On the other hand, you may not have any bleeding at all. For further information see the patient information leaflet.
Lovima 75 Microgram Film-Coated Tablets
There are two types of hormone contraceptives. The combined pill, otherwise known as “The Pill”, contains two types of female sex hormones called oestrogen and progestogen. Whilst the progestogen only pill, otherwise known as POP, doesn’t contain oestrogen.
Lovima 75 Microgram Film-Coated Tablets are a progestogen only pill (POP). Lovima 75 Microgram Film-Coated Tablets contain a small amount of one type of female sex hormone, the progestogen called desogestrel.
The majority of POPs work by primarily preventing the sperm cells from entering the womb but don’t always prevent the egg from ripening, which is the main way that combined pills work. In this case however, Lovima 75 Microgram Film-Coated Tablets are different from the majority of POPs. In most cases the dose prevents the egg cell from ripening, resulting in a highly effective contraceptive.
Lovima Contraceptive Pill
Here are some quick facts about the Lovima Contraceptive Pill–
- If it’s taken reliably and correctly, it’ is more than 99% effective at preventing pregnancy. This means less than 1 woman in 100 who use Lovima Contraceptive Pill as a contraceptive will get pregnant within a year.
- If taken only typically, the effective chance is lowered to 92%.
- The pill must be taken every day, with no breaks in-between packs.
- It must be taken at the same time every day.
- If you experience vomiting or diarrhoea when taking the pill it may not work correctly.
- Certain other medicines, if taken together with the Lovima Contraceptive Pill, may affect its effectiveness.
- The pill on its own doesn’t protect you from sexually transmitted infections, so the use of a condom with the pill is recommended.
Lovima Mini Pill
In contrast to combined pills, the Lovima Mini Pill can be used
- By women who cannot take oestrogens, or do not want to
- By women who are breast-feeding
If you think you are post-menopausal, talk to your doctor. You may not need to take contraceptives.
Hormonal contraceptives, including the Lovima Mini Pill, does not protect against HIV infection (AIDS) or any other sexually transmitted disease. Only condoms can protect you from sexually transmitted infections.
The Lovima Mini Pill does not work as an emergency contraceptive. If it’s taken every day it will protect against pregnancy in the future.
Your doctor or healthcare provider may recommend a progestogen mini pill, such as Lovima Desogestrel if you are currently:
- Breast-feeding. For multiple years it was believed that the estrogen in combination pills inhibited breast milk production. However more recent research has shown that the combination pills don’t affect lactation. As a result many health providers and patients still have confidence in a progestogen mini pill for breast-feeding.
- Have other health conditions. A doctor may recommend a progestogen mini pill if you have a history of blood clots in the legs or the lungs, or if you have an increased risk of those conditions.
- Concerned about taking estrogen. You may opt to use a progestogen mini pill (Lovima Desogestrel) because of the side effects of a pill containing estrogen.
As long as you currently aren’t pregnant, a Desogestrel pill can be taken at any time, although ideally on the first day of the menstrual period. When first starting on the desogestrel pill, for the first two days it may be recommended that a backup method of birth control is used, such as a condom.
This back up birth control can be skipped if the Desogestrel Pill is taken:
- During the first five days of your period
- Between six weeks and six months after giving birth if breast-feeding is still being used and you haven’t had a period
- Within 21 days after giving birth if not breast-feeding
- The day after you stop using another hormonal method of contraception
- Immediately after pregnancy termination
Mini Pill Desogestrel
If you ever forget to take the Mini Pill Desogestrel follow the instructions below or the ones found in the patient information leaflet:
- If you are less than 12 hours late
- Take the delayed pill straight away and take any further pills as usual. Mini Pill Desogestrel will still protect you from pregnancy.
- If you are more than 12 hours late
- Take the most recently missed pill straight away and leave any earlier missed pills in the strip. Take your further pills as usual. The use of extra contraception, such as condoms, should be used for the next 7 days. Missing tablets at any time in the cycle can reduce the efficacy of the Mini Pill Desogestrel and risk pregnancy but if you have missed one or more tablets in the first week of taking Hana and had sex in the week before missing the tablets, the risk you may get pregnant is higher.
Ask a pharmacist for advice if you’re still unsure about what to do if you miss a Mini Pill Desogestrel. For full details, please see the chart in the patient information leaflet, on the first page.

Here are some Desogestrel reviews from around the web –
“I have been on this pill for about a year with no major side effects except for a decrease in libido.”
“I haven’t had a problem with this BC! The first month taking it I had some more headaches than usual, but nothing too terrible. It lightened my periods (which used to be AWFUL) and prevents pregnancy. All in all, I recommend trying it!”
“Highly recommend, no weight gain or mood swings compared to other birth control pills I have taken. Everyone is different but I give this birth control an excellent review because of the experiences I have had with others.”

POP prevents pregnancy by thickening the mucus in the cervix to stop sperm reaching an egg.
The desogestrel progestogen-only pill can also stop ovulation.
Progestogen-only pills contain the hormone progestogen, but don’t contain oestrogen.
You need to take the progestogen-only pill reliably every day and if taken correctly, it’s more than 99% effective.
You take a pill every day, with no break between packs of pills.
The progestogen-only pill can be used by women who can’t use contraception that contains oestrogen.
You can take the progestogen-only pill if you’re over 35 and you smoke.
You must take the progestogen-only pill at the same time each day. If you take it more than 3 hours late (traditional progestogen-only pill) – or 12 hours late (desogestrel pill) – it may not be effective.
If you’re sick (vomit) or have severe diarrhoea, the progestogen-only pill may not work.
Some medicines may affect the progestogen-only pill’s effectiveness – ask your doctor for details.
Your periods may stop or become lighter, irregular or more frequent.
Side effects may include spotty skin and breast tenderness – these should clear up within a few months.
You’ll need to use condoms as well as the progestogen-only pill to be protected against sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
How to take the progestogen-only pill
There are 2 different types of progestogen-only pill:
3-hour progestogen-only pill – must be taken within 3 hours of the same time each day
12-hour progestogen-only pill (desogestrel progestogen-only pill) – must be taken within 12 hours of the same time each day.
You can start the progestogen-only pill at any time in your menstrual cycle.
If you start it on day 1 to 5 of your menstrual cycle (the first 5 days of your period), it’ll work straight away and you’ll be protected against pregnancy. You won’t need additional contraception.
If you have a short menstrual cycle, you’ll need additional contraception, such as condoms, until you’ve taken the pill for 2 days.
If you start the progestogen-only pill on any other day of your cycle, you won’t be protected from pregnancy straight away and will need additional contraception until you’ve taken the pill for 2 days.
After having a baby
If you’ve just had a baby, you can start the progestogen-only pill on day 21 after the birth. You’ll be protected against pregnancy straight away.
What to do if you miss a pill
If you forget to take a progestogen-only pill, what you should do depends on:
If you’re less than 3 or less than 12 hours late taking the pill (depending on the pill you take).
take the late pill as soon as you remember, and
take the remaining pills as normal, even if that means taking 2 pills on the same day.
The progestogen-only pill is very safe to take. But, as with the combined contraceptive pill, there are certain risks.
For most women, benefits of the progestogen-only pill outweigh the risks.
Some women can develop fluid-filled cysts on their ovaries. These aren’t dangerous and don’t usually need to be removed.
The cysts usually disappear without treatment. In many cases, the cysts don’t cause symptoms, although some women experience pelvic pain.
Research is continuing into the link between breast cancer and the progestogen-only pill.
There isn’t enough evidence to say for certain that the progestogen-only pill doesn’t increase the risk of breast cancer.
But if there is any increased risk, it’s likely to be very small and disappear with time after you stop taking the progestogen-only pill.
Doctors don’t think using the progestogen-only pill is likely to increase the risk in women who have close relatives who have had breast cancer.
