“Worked really well. Minimal side effects, speedy delivery.”
Lucette acne may or may not help with clearing up any acne you may have. A reportedly common side effect of taking Lucette tablets can be various skin problems, such as a rash, itching and acne.
On the other hand, a combination pill such as Lucette can be used to help improve any acne. This may not work for everyone however, having no effect on lucette acne.
For people who do start to see improvement, it can take up to a few weeks to 3 months before any tangible improvement. This is because the hormones contained within Lucette tablets need time to get into your system and recalibrate your hormone levels.
Before using a combination pill such as Lucette tablets solely for acne, you should speak to your doctor and gather advice on whether or not Lucette acne will be beneficial for you.
Lucette Contraceptive Pill
Lucette contraceptive pill is used to prevent pregnancy. Each Lucette contraceptive pill contains two different female hormones. The two contained within a lucette tablet are called ethinylestradoil and drospirenone.
If a pill such as Lucette contraceptive pill contains two hormones, to differentiate between other pills, they are called “combination” pills.
The history behind Lucette tablets and other contraceptive pills date back to 1976, when Drospirenone was patented. It was introduced for medical use in the year 2000 and is now widely available around the world. In 2016 the version of Drospirenone that was with Ethinylestradiol was the 109th most prescribed medication in the US with more than six million prescriptions.
Can You Take Lucette Back To Back
A common question we are often asked is ‘Can you take Lucette back to back?’
Generally the most common way you take the pill is to take one every day for 21 days, before taking a break for seven days. Following the seven day break, it’s then started again for a further 21 days.
The NHS advises against ‘Can you take lucette back to back’ when taking more than two packs without a break without a GP’s approval.
If you are still unsure whether or not you can take lucette back to back, speak with your doctor and check first before doing anything that could harm you.
Coming Off Lucette
Coming off Lucette and other contraceptive pills can cause some unwanted side effects. This is because Lucette tablets are a hormonal contraceptive, thus once someone stops taking it, changes in hormonal levels will occur.
Some of these side effects when coming off lucette include –
- Heavy and painful periods
- Weight loss
- Losing some additional benefits that may have been gained, such as improvements to acne and female facial hair
- Mood swings
- Periods may be irregular at first, but will improve and return to the natural cycle within a three month time period
Coming off Lucette and other contraceptive pills will immediately make you unprotected against pregnancy. If you aren’t planning on getting pregnant, you should find a new form of contraception as soon as possible.
Lucette Pill Instructions
Below will be a guide explaining Lucette pill instructions
The Lucette Pill should be taken every day for 21 days. Lucette contains strips of 21 pills with each pill marked with the day it should be taken.
The following steps should be followed –
- Take the pill at the same time every day.
- Start by taking the pill which is currently the correct day of the week.
- Follow the direction of the arrows on the strip. Take one each day until all 21 pills have been used.
- Swallow each pill whole, with water if required. Do not chew the pill.
Once the strip has been finished with all 21 pills taken, you should then have seven pill-free days.
Within a couple of days of taking the last pill, you should have a withdrawal bleed that is like a period. This withdrawal bleed may not have finished when it is time to start another strip of pills.
You should not need to use extra contraceptive measures during the seven pill free days – as long as you have taken the pills correctly and you start the next strip on time.
For more in depth Lucette pill instructions please refer to your patient information leaflet.

The combined oral contraceptive pill is usually just called “the pill”. It contains the female hormones oestrogen and progesterone, which women produce naturally in their ovaries.
The Combined pill is over 99% effective at preventing pregnancy.
The usual way to take the pill is to take one every day for 21 days, then stop for seven days, and during this week you have a period-type bleed. You start taking the pill again after seven days.
You need to take the pill at around the same time every day. You could get pregnant if you don’t do this, or if you miss a pill, or vomit or have severe diarrhoea.
Some medicines may make the pill less effective. Check with your doctor if you’re taking any other tablets.
If you have heavy periods or painful periods, PMS (premenstrual syndrome) or endometriosis the combined pill may help.
The pill does not protect against sexually transmitted infections (STIs), so using a condom as well will help to protect you against STIs.
How the combined pill works
1) prevents the ovaries from releasing an egg each month (ovulation).
2)thickens the mucus in the neck of the womb, so it is harder for sperm to penetrate the womb and reach an egg
3)thins the lining of the womb, so there is less chance of a fertilised egg implanting into the womb and being able to grow
There are many different brands of pill, made up of three main types:
Monophasic 21-day pills
This is the most common type. Each pill has the same amount of hormone in it. One pill is taken each day for 21 days and then no pills are taken for the next seven days. Microgynon, Marvelon, Yasmin and Cilest are examples of this type of pill.
Phasic 21-day pills
Phasic pills contain two or three sections of different coloured pills in a pack. Each section contains a different amount of hormones. One pill is taken each day for 21 days and then no pills are taken for the next seven days. Phasic pills need to be taken in the right order. Logynon is an example of this type of pill.
Every day (ED) pills
There are 21 active pills and seven inactive (dummy) pills in a pack. The two types of pill look different. One pill is taken each day for 28 days with no break between packets of pills. Every day pills need to be taken in the right order. Microgynon ED is an example of this type of pill.
Follow the instructions that come with your packet. If you have any questions, ask your GP, practice nurse or pharmacist.
What to do if you miss a pill
If you continue to be sick, keep using another form of contraception until you’ve taken the pill again for seven days without vomiting.
Who can use the combined pill
If there are no medical reasons why you cannot take the pill, and you don’t smoke, you can take the pill until your menopause. However, the pill is not suitable for all women. To find out whether the pill is right for you, talk to your GP, practice nurse or pharmacist.
You should not take the pill if you:
smoke and are 35 or older
stopped smoking less than a year ago and are 35 or older
are very overweight
take certain medicines (ask your GP or a health professional at a contraception clinic about this)
You should also not take the pill if you have (or have had):
thrombosis (a blood clot) in a vein, for example in your leg or lungs
stroke or any other disease that narrows the arteries
anyone in your close family having a blood clot under the age of 45
a heart abnormality or heart disease, including high blood pressure
severe migraines, especially with aura (warning symptoms)
disease of the gallbladder or liver
diabetes with complications or diabetes for the past 20 years
Risks of taking the combined pill
There are some risks associated with using the combined contraceptive pill. However, these risks are small and, for most women, the benefits of the pill outweigh the risks.
The oestrogen in the pill may cause your blood to clot more readily. If a blood clot develops, it could cause:
deep vein thrombosis (clot in your leg)
pulmonary embolus (clot in your lung)
The risk of getting a blood clot is very small, but your doctor will check if you have certain risk factors that before prescribing the pill.
The pill can be taken with caution if you have one of the risk factors below. It is unlikely you would be advised to take it if you have two or more risk factors.
being 35 years old or over
being a smoker or having quit smoking in the past year
being very overweight (in women with a BMI of 35 or over, the risks of using the pill usually outweigh the benefits)
having migraines (you should not take the pill if you have severe or regular migraine attacks, especially if you get aura or a warning sign before an attack)
having high blood pressure
having had a blood clot or stroke in the past
having a close relative who had a blood clot when they were younger than 45
being immobile for a long time – for example, in a wheelchair or with a leg in plaster
Research is ongoing into the link between breast cancer and the pill. Research suggests that users of all types of hormonal contraception have a slightly higher chance of being diagnosed with breast cancer compared with women who do not use them. However, 10 years after you stop taking the pill, your risk of breast cancer goes back to normal.
Research has also suggested a link between the pill and the risk of developing cervical cancer and a rare form of liver cancer. However, the pill does offer some protection against developing womb (endometrial) cancer, ovarian cancer and colon cancer.
Like all medicines, this medicine can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them. If you get any
side effect, particularly if severe and persistent, or have any change to your health that you think may be
due to Yasmin, please talk to your doctor.
An increased risk of blood clots in your veins (venous thromboembolism (VTE)) or blood clots in your
arteries (arterial thromboembolism (ATE)) is present for all women taking combined hormonal

contraceptives please see section 2 “What you need to know before you take Yasmin”.
