Advice and choice

In Latest

Lovima is Maxwellia’s new pharmacy (P) brand of desogestrel (75 micrograms), putting pharmacy at the frontline of providing important contraception advice and choice for women of childbearing age, explains the company.

Following a pharmacist consultation to determine suitability, Lovima can be taken by women currently using another contraceptive method, as first supply or when switching from any other hormonal contraception, including the combination pill and emergency contraception, says Maxwellia. A blood pressure check is not necessary although may be offered as part of a general health check. Up to a three-month supply is recommended initially to avoid uninterrupted use (missed pill) for women aged over 18 years.
