Levonelle One Step is also known as the ‘morning-after pill' and is an effective form of emergency contraception that has helped millions of women to prevent pregnancy. It is 85% effective at preventing pregnancy for up to three days after unprotected intercourse or contraceptive failure. It is, however, at its most effective if taken during the first 24 hours after unprotected sex.

You can buy Levonelle online as a precautionary measure, to keep in case you experience contraceptive failure or have unprotected intercourse.

What are the benefits?

Levonelle One Step is 95% effective at preventing conception if taken within the first 24 hours after unprotected sex. After 25 to 48 hours the efficacy rate drops to 85%, which means it can still significantly reduce your chances of falling pregnant. If taken on the third day after unprotected sex, the efficacy rate is at its lowest at 58%. Because of its shorter active time, Levonelle is less likely to cause nausea than other morning-after pills.

How does it work?

When a mature egg is released during the menstrual cycle, the ovaries produce progesterone. The release of this hormone prevents the release of any other eggs. Levonogestrel is the active ingredient in Levonelle One Step. It produces high levels of synthetic progesterone and convinces the body that ovulation has already occurred, and therefore no further eggs are released for fertilisation.

Levonogestrel also affects the consistency of the womb's natural mucous, making it thicker and more difficult for sperm cells to enter the womb. Eggs therefore stand less of a change of becoming fertilised if the sperm can't survive.

In addition to both these measures, the progestogen in this medication also prevents the womb lining from preparing to receive a fertilised egg, so if one does get released, it won't be able to attach itself to the womb lining like it would under normal circumstances.

Who can buy Levonelle One Step?

You can buy Levonelle if you are 18 years and older as precautionary measure in case you have unprotected sex or your usual contraceptive method fails. It should not be taken if you have any liver diseases or if you have a disease or any disorder that causes malabsorption. If you have an allergy to progestogen levonorgestrel, it is advisable that you do not use this emergency contraceptive.

It's important that you mention in your consultation if you have HIV, TB, epilepsy or if you are using any fungicidal medications or herbal products containing St John's wort.

How should Levonelle One Step be taken?

One Levonelle tablet should be swallowed with a glass of water as soon as possible after you have had unprotected sex or if your usual contraceptive method fails. Levonelle One Step can be taken at any point during your menstrual cycle. If you are already taking a contraceptive, you should continue using it. It is also recommended that you use a barrier contraceptive for the duration of your menstrual cycle as an additional precautionary measure because Levonelle can only be used once during a cycle.

Will I experience any side effects?

Some women may experience mild side effects, such as headaches and nausea after taking Levonelle. Some of the less common side effects include breast tenderness, stomach pains, diarrhoea, dizziness and fatigue. After taking this emergency contraceptive, you may find that your period will be delayed and that you'll experience some mild bleeding and spotting prior to your next period.
