How effective is Lolo?
Lolo is 97 percent effective at preventing unplanned pregnancies. This means that out of 100 women who take Lolo correctly as directed, three will get pregnant yearly. Lolo should be taken at the same time every day as directed.
Since it is a multiphasic oral contraceptive, the pills also need to be taken in the correct order. All blue pills should be taken first, followed by the two white and brown pills. The next pack should start again with the blue pills when one package is done.
Lolo is the lowest dose oral contraceptive that still maintains such a high level of protection against unwanted pregnancy, making it desirable for those who prefer or are better suited to an ultra-low dose of estrogen option. As a baseline, 60 to 85 women out of 100 will become pregnant in a year if no birth control is used. With condoms, between two and 12 women out of 100 will become pregnant in a year.
