I need Emergency contraception
It's a fact of life that accidents happen with contraception. Perhaps you are on the Pill and forgot to take it? Maybe you have been sick and you're wondering if the Pill will still work? Possibly you were using a condom and something went wrong?
If you're anxious because you've had unprotected sex or concerned that you may be at risk of pregnancy, Levonelle One Step® (the morning after pill, emergency contraceptive pill) can be the answer to your worries.
If you think you may need emergency contraception it's important to act quickly - within hours rather than days.
What is Levonelle One Step®?
Levonelle One Step® is also known as 'the morning after pill' but you can take it up to 3 days (72 hours) after unprotected sex to prevent pregnancy.
The earlier you take Levonelle One Step® morning after pill the more likely it is to work, so it's important to act quickly, in hours rather than days.
How does the morning after pill work?
It's still not fully understood how Levonelle One Step® morning after pill works because it depends on where you are in your cycle.
- The morning after pill may stop an egg being released from the ovary (ovulation)
- It may prevent sperm from fertilising any egg that may already have been released
- It may stop a fertilised egg from attaching itself to the lining of the womb
Levonelle One Step® stops a pregnancy before it is established. It doesn't work if you are already pregnant. The sooner you take Levonelle One Step®, the more effective it is.
Emergency contraceptive pills are not meant to be used as a regular method of contraception. If you're sexually active, whether you have sex occasionally or frequently, you need to choose a regular long-term method of contraception that suits you.
Will Levonelle One Step Morning After Pill Work?
Provided you follow the instructions, Levonelle One Step is 95% effective within 24 hours of having unprotected sex, 85% effective between 25 - 48 hours and 58% between 49 - 72 hours. There is 1 tablet in the pack, which its important to take as quickly as possible.
After taking Levonelle One Step® morning after pill, most women will have a normal period at the time they expect but sometimes, your period might come earlier or later than usual. It can also be lighter or heavier than usual. Or, you could have some 'spotting' until your next period.
Levonelle One Step® is not 100% effective and will not prevent pregnancy in every woman.
If the emergency contraceptive pill fails and you do become pregnant, do not take Levonelle One Step® again. Levonelle One Step® does not work if you are already pregnant. If you need further advice, go to your doctor or family planning clinic as soon as possible.
I want to take care of my sexual health
Anyone can make a mistake with contraception and no matter how careful you are, things can still go wrong. When you get a scare, you can feel really upset and worried about the prospect of an unplanned pregnancy.
While Levonelle One Step® emergency contraception is designed to cover you in situations like this, it is not meant to be used as a regular method of birth control and it does not give you any protection from sexually transmitted infections.
If you are sexually active, it's really important to take good care of your sexual health, firstly by having safe sex, and secondly, by choosing a long-term method of contraception that suits you.
Can be sold to women over 16 years.
