Lucette is a combined contraceptive pill which contains synthetic versions of the female sex hormones ethinylestardiol and drospirenone. The hormones in the pill work by preventing your ovaries from releasing an egg.
These hormones also increase the amount of mucus in the neck of your womb (cervix) which makes it difficult for sperm to get through and reach an egg. The quality of the lining of your womb is also affected so that if an egg is fertilised, it won’t be able to implant itself, preventing pregnancy.
Lucette is used to prevent pregnancy in sexually active women. Because taking the combined contraceptive pill can also result in lighter, less painful and more regular periods, it’s sometimes prescribed for women who experience heavy, painful or irregular periods.
Both medicines contain the same active ingredients in the same quantities. They just have different names because they are made by different manufacturers. In contrast to Yasmin, Lucette contains in addition soja lecithin. Please be aware that you must not take Lucette when you have a known soya allergy.
Women who want to prevent pregnancy without using a barrier type of contraception such as a condom. Women are experiencing problems with their periods. Most healthy non-smoking women under the age of 35 can take Lucette although there are some exceptions. If you’re unsure, speak to your doctor.
You shouldn’t take Lucette if you are a smoker because smoking increases the risk of serious heart problems that are associated with taking this type of contraceptive pill. The risk increases with the amount of cigarettes you smoke and your age. If you’re a heavy smoker (15 or more cigarettes per day) and/or over the age of 35 you are at a higher risk and should consider using another type of contraceptive.
Don’t take Lucette if you’re you are allergic to any of the ingredients in it or;
There are other conditions that might mean you will have to take extra care if you use Lucette. For the full list of conditions, see the leaflet that comes with your medicine. You may still be able to use Lucette but just need regular checkups with your doctor.
Lucette is amonophasic pill, so each pill contains exactly the same amount of hormone. You should take it exactly as your doctor has told you to. If you’re not sure about anything, ask your healthcare provider for advice.
Each pack of Lucette contains three strips of 21 tablets. The tablets come in a printed calendar strip to help you remember to take them every day.
Take a pill every day for 21 days in a row, then have a break of seven days. Start the next pack after a seven-day tablet-free period. You should experience some bleeding during the break.
Try to take your pill around the same time every day. Some people find it easier to remember to take the pill first thing in the morning or last thing at night.
Swallow each pill whole, with a glass of water. It doesn’t matter if you take them with food or not.
If you start taking Lucette on the first day of your period, you won’t need to use an extra form of contraception. You can start taking Lucette up to day five of your cycle and you will be protected from pregnancy, unless you have a short menstrual cycle (a period every 23 days or less). Talk to your doctor about whether you’ll need to use another form of contraceptive for the first seven days if that’s the case.
If you’re sure you’re not pregnant, you can start taking Lucette at any other time in your cycle, but you won't be protected from getting pregnant straight away so you’ll have to use another form of contraception for the first seven days if you have sex.
You can start taking Lucette 21 days after giving birth as long as you’re not breastfeeding. You won’t need to use any other contraception. If you start taking the pill more than 21 days after having your baby, you’ll need to use condoms or another type of contraception if you have sex.
If you’ve just had a miscarriage or an abortion at under 24 weeks, you’ll be protected against pregnancy if you start taking Lucette straight away. If you don’t start using it for seven days or more, you won’t be protected and you’ll have to use a condom or other form of contraception at the same time, for the first seven days of taking your pill.
If it’s your first time using Lucette it’s possible that you might experience a little spotting, breakthrough bleeding or even miss one or more periods. If it doesn’t settle down, or you don’t have a withdrawal bleed for two months in a row, take a pregnancy test before starting your next pack.
Like all medicines, Lucette can cause side effects. Not everyone will experience side effects from taking these tablets. The most common side effects are:
You should seek medical attention immediately if you notice any of the following:
If you get any side effects that you think might be due to using this medicine, talk to your doctor. You can also report side effects directly via the Yellow Card Scheme at: www.mhra.gov.uk/yellowcard.
Lucette shouldn’t be taken during pregnancy. If you do get pregnant while you’re taking it, however, there’s no evidence that it will harm your baby. If you think you could be pregnant, stop taking your pill immediately and see your doctor.
The hormones in Lucette can reduce the amount of breast milk you produce so you shouldn’t use it until after weaning, or at least six months after your baby is born. In addition small amounts of the contraceptive may be excreted with the milk during use of the pill. These amounts may affect the child.
If you forget to take one pill, that is you’re at least 24 hours late in taking it, take it as soon as you remember.
Missed one pill
If you’ve missed one pill or you’re only one day late in starting your next pack, take the missed pill as soon as you realise. Take two pills at the same time if you have to. Take the rest of the pack normally and you’ll still be protected from pregnancy.
Missed two or more pills
If you’ve missed two or more pills or you realise you’re two or more days late in starting a new pack, take the LAST pill you missed as soon as you remember even if you have to take two pills at once. Don’t take the rest of the pills you missed. Carry on taking your pill for the next seven days.s as normal, but use an extra method of contraception like a condom, every time you have sex for the next seven days.
If you have fewer than seven pills left after your last missed pill, finish the rest of the pack and start the next one the next day, without a pill free break.
If you have seven or more pills left, finish the pack and take the seven day break as usual.
If you are sick within a few hours of taking your Lucette, take another one as soon as you feel well enough to keep it down. If you carry on being sick, your pill is likely to be less effective and you’ll need to treat each day that you’re sick as if you’d forgotten to take it (see above), Carry on taking your pill as soon as you feel well enough.
If you have very severe diarrhoea and it lasts for more than 24 hours, carry on taking your pill as normal and treat each day that the diarrhoea continues as if you’d forgotten to take it, as above.

This is the first time I have used this service. Website was easy to navigate and online questions very clear. prompt response and delivery of malaria tablets.
I cannot believe how easy it was to order, pay and then receive the goods. They kept me informed throughout. I wish all companies were this easy to deal with
I have been prescribed the same medication for over 4 years, yet I still have the hassle of taking valued time off work to visit my GP/local pharmacy for repeat prescriptions. This tedious exercise costs me a half day's annual leave for little more than a blood pressure reading and ironically, I own my own electronic blood pressure meter! DrEd.com - inexpensive, well packaged and prompt delivery.
Placed order one day delivered the next in discrete packaging, treatment worked as directed. Would use again and reccomed
