Ethinylestradiol Levonorgestrel / Levonorgestrel and Ethinyl Estradiol

Levonorgestrel is also contained in non-emergency birth control pills and often in combination with a oestrogen.

Combined oral contraceptives are a  much more effective contraceptive than the levonorgestrel (emergency pill) which should not be used regularly or as an alternative to normal contraception.

Levonorgestrel and ethinyl estradiol are a combination birth control pill containing the hormones that prevent ovulation (the release of an egg from an ovary). Levonorgestrel and ethinyl estradiol also causes changes in the cervical mucus and uterine lining, thus making it harder for the sperm to reach the uterus and harder for a fertilized egg to attach to the uterus.

Ethinylestradiol and levonorgestrel prevents pregnancy. They are offered as numerous brands and forms, see our range of contraception.

The dosage for Levonorgestrel and ethinyl estradiol is as follows for the usual adult dose:

One tablet orally, once a day, taken at the same time each day.

Levonorgestrel Effectiveness

The sooner the morning after pill Levonorgestrel is taken the more effective it will be. Twelve hours is the most effective period in which Levonorgestrel emergency contraceptive pill will do most of its work. However it can be still effective for up to 72 hours after sex. The more time passes the less effective Levonorgestrel will be.

The below statistics show the Levonorgestrel effectiveness –

  • Prevents up to 95% of pregnancies if taken within a 24 hour period
  • Up to 85% if taken within a 48 hour period
  • Up to 58% if taken within a 72 hour period

Any longer than 3 days can cause Levonorgestrel effectiveness to drastically decrease.

What is Levonorgestrel

We are often asked “What is Levonorgestrel?”.

Levonorgestrel is a synthetic (man-made) version of the natural hormone progesterone, levonorgestrel and is usually naturally produced by the ovaries.

Levonorgestrel works by stopping the ovaries from releasing an egg and preventing any of the sperm from fertilising any egg that may have already been released. This can only happen if Levonorgestrel is taken within 72 hours of having unprotected sex. The sooner the morning after pill is taken the more effective it will be.

Levonorgestrel doesn’t continue to protect you from pregnancy, if any unprotected sex is had after taking the morning after pill, you can become pregnant.

Regular use of Levonorgestrel is not recommended but it can be taken more than once in a menstrual cycle.

Levonorgestrel Side Effects

How Levonorgestrel Works

We are often asked to explain how Levonorgestrel works. Below is a quick explanation on how levonorgestrel works.

Levonorgestrel works by stopping the ovaries from releasing an egg and preventing any of the sperm from fertilising any egg that may have already been released. This can only happen if Levonorgestrel is taken within 72 hours of having unprotected sex. The sooner the morning after pill is taken the more effective it will be.

Vaginal fluid is also made thicker to help prevent sperm from reach any eggs in the uterus and changes the lining of the uterus to prevent any attachment.

This medication may not work well in women over a certain weight or if other specific medications have been used previously within the past month. This can increase the chance of Levonorgestrel not working and not topping pregnancy.

Warnings and precautions

If any of the following applies to you, talk to your doctor before taking Levonelle One Step as emergency contraception may not be suitable for you. Your doctor may prescribe another type of emergency contraception for you.

If you are pregnant or think that you may already be pregnant. This medicine will not work if you are already pregnant. If you are already pregnant, Levonelle One Step cannot terminate pregnancy, so Levonelle One Step is not an “abortion pill”.
You may already be pregnant if:
your period is more than 5 days late, or you have experienced unusual bleeding when your next period is due
you have had unprotected sex more than 72 hours ago, and since your last period.

The use of Levonorgestrel is not advised if you have:

– a disease of your small bowel (such as Crohn’s disease) that inhibits the absorption of the drug
– severe liver problems
– a history of ectopic pregnancy (where the baby develops somewhere outside the womb)
– 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.

How often can you use Levonorgestrel One Step

You should only use Levonelle in emergencies and not as a regular method of contraception. If Levonelle is used more than once in a menstrual cycle it is more likely to upset your menstrual cycle (period).

Levonelle does not work as well as regular methods of contraception. Your doctor, practice nurse or family planning clinic can tell you about long-term methods of contraception which are more effective.

How to take Levonorgestrel

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 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.

If you are already using a regular method of contraception such as the contraceptive pill, you can continue to take this at your regular times.
If another unprotected intercourse takes place after the use of Levonelle One Step (also if this is during the same menstrual cycle), the tablet will not exert its contraceptive effect and there is again the risk of pregnancy.

What to do if you are sick (vomit)

If you are sick (vomit) within three hours of taking the tablet, you should take another tablet. You will need to contact your pharmacist, doctor, practice nurse or family planning clinic immediately for one more tablet.

Emergency contraception

Emergency contraception

Emergency contraception can prevent pregnancy after unprotected sex or if the contraception you have used has failed

There are 2 types of emergency contraception:

the emergency contraceptive pill – Levonelle or ellaOne (the “morning after” pill)
the intrauterine device (IUD or coil)

Emergency contraception
You need to take the emergency contraceptive pill within 3 days (Levonelle) or 5 days (ellaOne) of unprotected sex for it to be effective – the sooner you take it, the more effective it’ll be.
The IUD can be fitted up to 5 days after unprotected sex, or up to 5 days after the earliest time you could have ovulated, for it to be effective.
The IUD is more effective than the contraceptive pill at preventing pregnancy – less than 1% of women who use the IUD get pregnant.
Taking the emergency contraceptive pills Levonelle or ellaOne can give you a headache or tummy pain and make you feel or be sick.
The emergency contraceptive pill can make your next period earlier, later or more painful than usual.
If you’re sick (vomit) within 2 hours of taking Levonelle or 3 hours of taking ellaOne, go to your GP, pharmacist or genitourinary medicine (GUM) clinic, as you’ll need to take another dose or have an IUD fitted.
If you use the IUD as emergency contraception, it can be left in and used as your regular contraceptive method.

Emergency contraception doesn’t cause an abortion.

How the emergency pill works

Levonelle
Levonelle contains levonorgestrel, a synthetic (man-made) version of the natural hormone progesterone produced by the ovaries.

Taking it, is thought to stop or delay the release of an egg (ovulation).

Levonelle has to be taken within 72 hours (3 days) of sex to prevent pregnancy. It doesn’t interfere with your regular method of contraception.

ellaOne
ellaOne contains ulipristal acetate, which stops progesterone working normally. This also works by stopping or delaying the release of an egg.

ellaOne has to be taken within 120 hours (5 days) of sex to prevent pregnancy.

If you take Levonelle or ellaOne
Levonelle and ellaOne don’t continue to protect you against pregnancy – if you have unprotected sex at any time after taking the emergency pill, you can become pregnant.

They are not intended to be used as a regular form of contraception. But you can use emergency contraception more than once in a menstrual cycle if you need to.

Who can use the emergency pill?
Most women can use the emergency contraceptive pill. This includes women who can’t use hormonal contraception, such as the combined pill and contraceptive patch.
But you may not be able to take the emergency contraceptive pill if you’re allergic to anything in it, have severe asthma or take any medicines that may interact with it, such as:

the herbal medicine St John’s Wort
some medicines used to treat epilepsy, HIV or tuberculosis (TB)
medicine to make your stomach less acidic, such as omeprazole
some less commonly used antibiotics (rifampicin and rifabutin)
ellaOne can’t be used if you’re already taking one of these medicines, as it may not work. Levonelle may still be used, but the dose may need to be increased.

Breastfeeding
Levonelle is safe to take while breastfeeding. Although small amounts of the hormones in the pill may pass into your breast milk, it’s not thought to be harmful to your baby.

The safety of ellaOne during breastfeeding isn’t yet known. The manufacturer recommends that you don’t breastfeed for one week after taking this pill.

How the IUD works as emergency contraception

The intrauterine device (IUD) is a small, T-shaped plastic and copper device that’s put into your womb (uterus) by a doctor or nurse.

It releases copper to stop the egg implanting in your womb or being fertilised.

The IUD can be inserted up to 5 days after unprotected sex, or up to 5 days after the earliest time you could have ovulated (released an egg), to prevent pregnancy.

You can also choose to have the IUD left in as an ongoing method of contraception.

How effective is the IUD at preventing pregnancy?
The emergency IUD is the most effective method of emergency contraception – less than 1% of women who use the IUD get pregnant.

It’s more effective than the emergency pill at preventing pregnancy after unprotected sex.

Who can use the IUD?
Most women can use an IUD, including those who are HIV positive. A GP or nurse will ask about your medical history to check if an IUD is suitable for you.

Contraception for the future

If you’re not using a regular method of contraception, you might consider doing so to protect yourself from an unintended pregnancy.

See a GP, nurse or visit your nearest sexual health clinic to discuss the options available.
