Working Mechanism - Loette
Loette pills stop fertilization of eggs by avoiding sperms meeting mature eggs. This is done at first by curtailing ovaries from producing active eggs for pregnancy. Later the cervix thickens to stop the sperms going further. The medication then breaks uterine line or alters it. The thinning of endometrial does not allow egg to get implanted, thus preventing pregnancy.
Dosage - Loette
The woman consumes Loette pill everyday, one each at same time for 21 days. From 22nd to 28th day no tablets are consumed. In case the female chooses 28 day regimen, then 21 days dosage is same as given. From 22nd to 28th day, one inert tablet is ingested orally everyday. New birth control medicine pack can be taken from the 29th day.
Expected and Side Effects - Loette
Bleeding or withdrawal bleeding happens anywhere after 21 days. But, for preventing pregnancy later, the female has to start a new course of Loette contraceptive from the 29th day. Side effects are mild, but can include dizziness, mood swings, abdomen pain, tender breasts, weight change, heavier or lighter periods etc.
