Lessina is a contraceptive that has two hormones, estrogen and progestin. Lessina is used to prevent an egg from being released during ovulation. This means that during the menstrual cycle your egg will not be released and thus there are fewer chances of you getting pregnant. In case that the egg is released there will not be fertilization, as this medicine makes the vaginal fluid thicker and prevents the sperm from reaching the egg. Lessina also affects the lining of the womb such that there cannot be attachment of an egg that is fertilized. If a fertilized egg does not attach to the uterus, it is passed out by the body.
