Lyta 28 contains two active ingredients, Ethinylestradiol and Levonorgestrel. Ethinylestradiol is a synthetic version of oestrogen and levonorgestrel is a synthetic form of progesterone. The hormonal components of Lyta 28 inhibit ovulation by suppressing gonadotropin release. Secondary mechanisms, which may contribute to the effectiveness of Lyta 28 as a contraceptive, include changes in the cervical mucus (which increase the difficulty of sperm penetration) and changes in the endometrium (which reduce the likelihood of implantation).
