Lolo is a low-dose birth control pill indicated for the prevention of pregnancy. It contains two hormones, estrogen, and progestin, and works by preventing the ovary from releasing an egg, as well as changing the vaginal fluid and lining of the uterus to prevent implantation of a fertilized egg.


  • Lolo contains both norethindrone acetate and ethinyl estradiol in the blue tablets, ethinyl estradiol only in the white tablets, and no active medication in the lilac tablets. 
  • Take 1 blue tablet daily for 24 days, then 1 white tablet daily for 2 days, and finally, 1 lilac-colored tablet daily for 2 days.
  • Lolo can be taken with food or on an empty stomach. For maximum effectiveness, it should be taken at the same time every day.
  • The first day of the menstrual period (bleeding) is considered "Day 1." The pills can be started on the first Sunday after the period starts or on Day 1 of the period, as advised by the healthcare provider.
  • Use a second method of birth control (e.g., latex condoms and spermicidal foam or gel) for the first 7 days of the first cycle of pill use, especially if starting the medication on the first Sunday after the period starts.
  • If vomiting, diarrhea, or certain medications affect the pills' effectiveness, a backup method of birth control should be used until consulting with a healthcare provider.
  • Missing pills can increase the risk of pregnancy. If a pill is missed, specific instructions should be followed based on the number of pills missed and the week of the cycle. If unsure about what to do after missing pills, contact your healthcare provider for advice.
  • Lolo should be stored at room temperature, protected from light and moisture, and kept out of the reach of children.
