Thanks for writing to us.

Duoluton L is a combined OCP which contains ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel as ingredient.
And yes, you can sex while taking this pills. However it gives highest protection (near about 99.9%) against unwanted pregnancy if it is taken regularly on proper schedule after 1 month period.
For best results it should be taken from D1 of cycle for continuous 21 days with 7 days gap to get period normally. And during the first month you need to practice protected sexual intercourse to avoid unwanted pregnancy.

The pill is used to regularize your period and like every hormonal pill it has some effect on health like nausea/ vomiting, abdominal cramp, dizziness, irregular spotting, headache, etc. The side effect profile varies from woman to woman.

Hope, it helps for your information. If you have any other query, you can freely ask me.

Wish your good health & take care yourself.
