What is Levonelle?
Levonorgestrel (trade name Levonelle) which was first licensed in the UK in June 2004. It was developed as an emergency contraceptive that can be used within 72 hours of unprotected sex. It is not guaranteed to prevent pregnancy but is most effective the sooner you take the tablet. Levonelle is thought to work by stopping your ovaries from releasing an egg and preventing sperm from fertilising any egg that may have already been released.
Levonorgestrel is known to be most effective if taken within 12 hours of unprotected sex. The efficacy of the drug is reduced if taken after 12 hours. Statistics have shown that this medication is thought to prevent up to 95% of pregnancies when taken within 24 hours.
How to Use
One tablet should be taken orally, no later than 72 hours after unprotected sex or contraceptive failure. If vomiting occurs within 2 hours of taking Levonorgestrel a replacement dose should be taken.
When used for emergency contraception, Levonorgestrel can cause some side effects such as; nausea, irregular bleeding until your next period, fatigue, headache and lower abdominal pain. If you feel you are suffering from any uncommon side effects, contact your doctor for advice straight away.
