Lucette is one of the most popular contraceptive pills available. It is a combined pill with a standard dose of oestrogen and a progestogen called drospirenone. It can be used to treat acne, mood problems, and some symptoms of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), and some research has also linked it to increased sexual enjoyment. Compared with other combined pills, it has a slightly increased risk of blood clots and is also a more expensive pill than other options like Microgynon and Rigevidon , therefore it's usually not prescribed as a first choice option.
