What is Lucette?
Lucette is a combined oral contraception pill. It is used as a pregnancy preventative but it will also work to reduce acne breakouts and create a regular and less painful period.
How does it work?
Like other combined contraceptive pills, this one uses synthetic female hormones to prevent ovulation and ensure it is more difficult for sperm cells to travel through the cervix.
Is Lucette suitable for me?
Lucette is useful in controlling the severity of periods as well as reducing the symptoms of pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS). If taken correctly, it can be 99% effective at preventing pregnancies.

Lucette Patient Leaflet
Lucette is used as an oral contraceptive (birth control pill). It works by preventing ovulation (the release of an egg from the ovary) and by thickening the mucus in the cervix, which makes it difficult for sperm to penetrate and fertilize an egg.
Lucette can also be used to treat premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), a condition that causes mood swings, irritability, bloating, and other symptoms during the week before menstruation.
Lucette is available in packs of 21 tablets. The first 21 tablet pack should be started on the first day of your period (Day 1 Start). If you are starting Lucette on any other day of your cycle, you will need to use an additional method of contraception, such as condoms, for the first 7 days of taking Lucette. Lucette should be taken for 21 days, followed by a 7-day break during which you will experience withdrawal bleeding (similar to a period). After the 7-day break, you will start a new pack of pills.
Lucette also contains the inactive ingredients lactose monohydrate, maize starch, povidone, magnesium stearate, and hypromellose.
Lucette is a "monophasic" pill, which means that each tablet contains the same amount of active ingredients. This is different from "triphasic" pills, which have three different phases of tablets with different amounts of active ingredients. Monophasic pills are often preferred because they are easier to remember to take and may cause fewer side effects.
Lucette is taken orally once daily at the same time each day, with or without food. If you vomit or have severe diarrhoea within 3-4 hours of taking a dose of Lucette, you should take another tablet as soon as possible. If it is more than 12 hours since your last dose, skip the missed dose and take your next dose at your regular time. Do not take two doses of Lucette at the same time.
The most common side effects of Lucette include:
weight gain or loss,
Less common side effects include:
thrush (a yeast infection of the vagina),
decreased sex drive,
darkening of the skin,
changes in hair growth or texture.
Rare side effects include:
deep vein thrombosis (DVT),
pulmonary embolism (PE),
If you experience any of these serious side effects, stop taking Lucette and seek medical attention immediately.
Lucette is not suitable for everyone. You should not take Lucette if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. You should also avoid taking Lucette if you have a history of DVT, PE, stroke, or heart attack. Lucette may also not be suitable for you if you have certain medical conditions, such as liver disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, or a history of depression.
Before starting Lucette, be sure to tell your doctor about any other medications or supplements you are taking, as well as any medical conditions you have. Lucette is a prescription medication, if you have any questions about your condition or treatment, talk to your doctor or pharmacist.
