What is Lolo used for?
Lolo is a birth control pill and is used to prevent pregnancy. It is a combination oral contraceptive containing two sex hormones: the progestin known as norethindrone acetate and the estrogen called as ethinyl estradiol. Lolo has been shown to be effective in preventing pregnancy when taken as prescribed by the doctor. This combination pill works in two ways: it inhibits the monthly release of an egg by the ovaries and changes the mucus produced by the cervix which slows the movement of the sperm through mucus and through the uterus. The Lolo pill comes in 24 blue combination pills to be taken for 24 days, followed by 2 white estrogen-only pills, followed by 2 lilac placebo pills that do not contain any hormone. Lolo should be used only under the supervision of a doctor, with regular follow-up to identify side effects associated with its use. Your visits may include a blood pressure check, a breast exam and a pelvic exam, including a Pap smear. Visit your doctor three months or sooner after the initial examination. Afterward, visit your doctor at least once a year. Use Lolo only on the advice of your doctor and carefully follow all directions given to you.

Are there any Precautions and Drug interactions for Lolo?
Cigarette smoking increases the risk of serious cardiovascular side effects (heart and blood vessels problems) associated with the use of hormonal contraceptives. This risk increases with age, particularly in women over 35 years of age, and the number of cigarettes smoked. For this reason, Lolo should not be used by women who are over 35 years of age and smoke.
