What is Levonelle?

Levonelle is an emergency contraception tablet. It is intended for use after unprotected sex or if contraception has failed e.g. a condom has broken. 

How does it work?

The emergency pill needs to be taken as soon as possible after intercourse to be most effective. You must have taken it within 3 days for the synthetic hormones to delay or stop ovulation. 

Is Levonelle suitable for me?

Any emergency contraception pill is not intended to be used as a regular form of contraception, however, it can be used more than once in a menstrual cycle if needed. It is suitable to be used by most women and adolescents, girls under 16 are able to use it also.

Additional Information

Levonelle contains the active ingredient levonorgestrel, which is a synthetic version of the natural hormone progesterone. Levonelle works by delaying or preventing ovulation (the release of an egg from the ovary), and by thickening the mucus in the cervix, making it more difficult for sperm to penetrate and fertilize an egg.

Levonelle can be taken up to 72 hours (3 days) after unprotected sex, but it is most effective if taken within 12 hours. The earlier it is taken, the more effective it will be. If taken within 24 hours, Levonelle is about 58% effective in preventing pregnancy. This means that for every 100 women who take Levonelle, 42 will become pregnant. If taken within 48 hours, Levonelle is about 36% effective. And if taken within 72 hours, Levonelle is about 24% effective.

Levonelle is available without a prescription from pharmacies and can be taken by women of all ages. It is not recommended for use in women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Side effects of Levonelle may include nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, tiredness, headache, and dizziness. If you experience any of these side effects, contact your healthcare provider.

If you have had unprotected sex and are concerned about becoming pregnant, talk to your healthcare provider about Levonelle or other emergency contraception options.
