What is Lovima?

Lovima is a progestogen-only contraception pill that works to prevent pregnancy. When used correctly, it can be up to 99% effective. Lovima contains 75 micrograms of desogestrel, a type of progestogen, in every tablet. This form of birth control is also known as a progestogen-only pill (POP), and you may know it better as the ‘mini pill’.

Previously available on prescription only, desogestrel is the active ingredient in Lovima. This desogestrel contraceptive pill works to prevent pregnancy by stopping an egg from being released, also known as ovulation. Desogestrel also thickens the cervical mucus, making it harder for sperm to travel through to the uterus.


Why choose Lovima?

Lovima is an effective method of birth control. You can buy Lovima online or from your local participating pharmacy without a prescription or needing to see your GP. This is especially convenient if you struggle to find time in your busy schedule to book an appointment with your doctor, but you still want to prioritise your sexual health and wellbeing.

To ensure Lovima is right for you, you will need to complete our short online consultation, or if you want to buy Lovima over the counter, your pharmacist will take you through it.


Lovima as part of your daily routine

When using Lovima as your method of contraception, you should take one tablet each day, at the same time, without a break between packs. This means you continue to take Lovima until the packet is empty, then start a new packet straight away. The Lovima pill is straightforward to use and easy to incorporate into your daily routine.


An effective and suitable choice of contraception

Lovima is a suitable choice of contraception for many women and people with uteruses. You may be able to take Lovima if you have just had a baby, you’re breastfeeding or are over 35 years of age and smoke. Find out more about who can take Lovima.


Where can I buy Lovima?

You can buy Lovima online or over the counter at your local pharmacy under the supervision of a qualified pharmacist, making it quick and easy for you to get the birth control you need, when you need it.
