Description

Details

Levonelle One Step is an emergency contraceptive that can be used within 72 hours (3 days) of unprotected sex or if your usual contraceptive method has failed.

Levonelle One Step contains a synthetic hormone like substance called levonorgestrel. It prevents about 84% of expected pregnancies when you take it within 72 hours of having unprotected sex.

It will not prevent a pregnancy every time and is more effective if you take it as soon as possible after unprotected sex. It is better to take it within 12 hours rather than delay until the third day.

Knowledge

Levonelle One Step is thought to work by

  • Stopping your ovaries from releasing an egg
  • Preventing sperm from fertilising any egg you may have already released.

Levonelle One Step can only prevent you becoming pregnant if you take it within 72 hours of unprotected sex. It does not work if you are already pregnant. If you have unprotected sex after taking Levonelle One Step, it will not stop you from becoming pregnant

Instructions

Please read the leaflet enclosed in the product carefully before use.

Take the tablet as soon as possible, preferably within 12 hours, and no later than 72 hours (3 days) after you have had unprotected sex.

Levonelle One Step can be taken at any time in your menstrual cycle assuming you are not already pregnant or think you may be pregnant.

Do not chew but swallow the tablet whole with water. Do not delay taking the tablet. The tablet works best the sooner you take it after having unprotected sex.

Warnings

Please read the leaflet enclosed in the product carefully before use.

Age Restrictions

Not suitable if you are 16 and under 

Do Not Take 

If you are allergic to ulipristal acetate or any of the other ingredients of this medicine

Consult Your Pharmacist or Doctor Before

If your period is late or you have symptoms of pregnancy (heavy breasts, morning sickness), as you may already be pregnant

If you have a disease of your small bowel (such as Crohn’s disease) that inhibits the absorption of the drug

If you have severe liver problems

If you have a history of ectopic pregnancy (where the baby develops somewhere outside the womb)

If you have ever had a disease called salpingitis (inflammation of the Fallopian tubes).

A previous ectopic pregnancy or previous infection of the fallopian tubes increases the risk of a new ectopic pregnancy. Your doctor may decide that Levonelle One Step is not suitable for you, or that another type of emergency contraception would be better for you.

Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking, have recently taken or might take any other medicines. Some medicines may prevent Levonelle One Step from working effectively. If you have used any of the medicines below during the last 4 weeks, Levonelle One Step may be less suitable for you. Your doctor may prescribe another type of (non-hormonal) emergency contraceptive, i.e. a copper intrauterine device (Cu-IUD). If this is not an option for you or if you are unable to see your doctor promptly, you can take a double dose of Levonelle One Step:

  • Barbiturates and other medicines used to treat epilepsy (for example, primidone, phenytoin, and carbamazepine)
  • Medicines used to treat tuberculosis (for example, rifampicin, rifabutin) 
  • A treatment for HIV (ritonavir, efavirenz) 
  • A medicine used to treat fungal infections (griseofulvin)
  • Herbal remedies containing St John’s wort (Hypericum perforatum)

Speak to your pharmacist or doctor if you need further advice on the correct dose for you
