Millions of women all over the world have relied on Levonelle to help them prevent unwanted pregnancies. If you take Levonelle during the first day after unprotected sex, it is 95% effective. If taken between 25 and 48 hours after unprotected sex, its effectiveness drops to 85% but it still gives users a strong chance of not falling pregnant. Between 48 and 72 hours, it is 58% effective. This treatment is considered a next generation morning after pill, which means that the chance of you experiencing uncomfortable side effects is significantly reduced.
During the menstrual cycle, a mature egg is released from the ovaries. When this happens, the ovary produces progesterone, a female hormone which prevents the release of further eggs. Levonorgestrel tricks the body into believing that ovulation has already occurred by making high levels of synthetic progesterone. The production of this hormone prevents the release of further eggs from the ovaries.
Levonorgestrel also thickens the natural mucus in the womb, which makes it more difficult for sperm to enter the womb. The less chance the sperm has to survive, the less likely it is that the egg could be fertilised.
Women aged 18 years and older who have had unprotected sex, and those whose regular contraception has failed, can buy Levonelle online. This emergency contraception should not be used if you are allergic to the progestogen levonorgestrel. It should also not be taken if you have liver disease, or if you have a disease of the bowel or gut which causes malabsorption.
It can react negatively to medications for HIV, TB, epilepsy and fungal infections, as well as herbal medications containing St John’s Wort. If you use any of these medications, be sure to include this in your consultation.
Levonelle can be taken at any stage of the menstrual cycle. One tablet should be swallowed whole with water as early as possible after unprotected sex. Women who are already taking regular contraceptives should continue to do so as this emergency contraceptive can only be used once every menstrual cycle. Use of a barrier contraceptive is recommended to protect against further pregnancy until you start your next cycle.
If you vomit within three hours of taking this medication you must contact your doctor, as the contraception is unlikely to have had enough chance to take effect.
Levonelle may cause some side effects in users such as nausea and headaches. The less common side effects include breast tenderness, headaches, stomach pains, diarrhoea or tiredness, which may only occur in some women. Your period may also come later after taking Levonelle, which can cause some spotting or bleeding before your next period.
