Description

What is Levonorgestrel ( generic Levonelle)?

Levonorgestrel is of a single dose medication and is taken by women who either had unprotected sex or fear that their normal contraception may have failed e.g. forgetting to take a contraceptive tablet or because of a torn condom. If taken within 72 hours of the incident, there is a 95 percent chance of it being effective and preventing any unplanned pregnancy.

If you had unprotected sexual intercourse or a barrier method has failed then please fill in the questionnaire and our pharmacist will get back to you. If you are suitable for treatment then a supply will be made, otherwise a full refund will be issued.

How does it work?

This emergency contraceptive tablet works with only one dose and can be kept on hand for any contraceptive accident or failure. It can be bought online and saves the need for an emergency appointment with your own doctor.

The active ingredient of 1.5mg of levonorgestrel works by stopping the release of eggs from the ovaries and also by preventing fertilisation of a released egg or its attaching itself to the lining of the womb.

How effective is Levonorgestrel at preventing pregnancy?

Levonorgestrel may have no effect, if taken after longer than 72 hours after unprotected sexual activity. In such cases, consult your local doctor or there is the option of using EllaOne emergency contraception tablet which can be taken up to 5 days after unprotected sex.

After taking Levonorgestrel

Very few women are sick after taking Levonorgestrel but, should this occur within three hours of having taken the tablet, it is necessary to take a second replacement tablet, as the first dose will not have had sufficient time to be effective. If sickness still occurs, speak with your local doctor about a different emergency contraceptive method.
The feeling of being sick or nausea will not effect Levonorgestrel.

Levonorgestrel may alter the regularity of your next period and may also lead to a much lighter or heavier period than is normal. If the next period proves to be more than five days late, either take a pregnancy test or consult your doctor.

Levonorgestrel protects you only for that one unprotected occasion and so contraception continues to be needed during the rest of the menstrual cycle. If you are using the patch or the contraceptive pill, you may also need the added protection of a condom for the rest of that menstrual period.
