Description

What is Levest?

Levest tablets are called combined oral contraceptives because each pill combines two hormones, a type of oestrogen known as ethinylestradiol and progesterone called levonorgestrel, to prevent pregnancy.

When Levest is taken as directed over 21 days it is a very effective, reversible method of contraception. Unlike progesterone-only contraceptives, which you take every day without a break. On Levest you will have a 7-day pill-free break each month where most women will experience a bleed.

What is Levest used for?

Levest is used as an oral contraceptive to prevent pregnancy. Alongside this many people find Levest is very effective at reducing premenstrual symptoms and improving the pain and flow of periods.

Please be aware that oral contraceptives do not prevent the spread of sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Barrier methods of contraception such as condoms are recommended to prevent STIs. If you are concerned you should speak to a doctor or visit your local sexual health clinic for advice.

How does Levest work?

Levest works in the same way as other combined hormonal contraceptives and prevents the body from ovulating, so you do not produce an egg each month.

Combined pills cause the cervical mucus in the neck of the uterus to build up, making it more difficult for sperm to get through to the uterus to fertilise an egg. They also thin the lining of your uterus making it harder for a fertilised egg to be able to embed into the uterus wall.

How effective is Levest?

When Levest is taken as directed over 21 days it is a very effective, reversible method of contraception. Unlike progesterone-only contraceptives (which you take every day without a break), with Levest you will have a 7-day pill-free break each month where most women will experience a bleed.

Levest vs. Microgynon

Levest and Microgynon 30 are different brands of combined oral contraceptives that contain the same amount of the active ingredients ethinylestradiol and levonorgestrel.

At The Independent Pharmacy, we also have available on prescription, Ovranette and Rigevidon, which contain the same active ingredients and can be taken as alternatives to Levest and Microgynon.
