Overview

Buy Loestrin 20 Contraceptive Pills Online

Loestrin is a combined contraceptive pill used to stop you from becoming pregnant. It contains Norethisterone Acetate – this is a hormone known as a progestogen and Ethinylestradiol – this is a hormone known as estrogen.

These hormones are similar to those produced naturally by your body during pregnancy.

These hormones in your pill help to stop eggs being released for fertilisation, and thicken the fluid present in the neck of the womb hence making it more difficult for sperm to enter the womb, and to prevent the lining of the womb becoming thick enough for a fertilised egg to become embedded in it.
