The only way of knowing whether NorLevo® has worked is when you get your next period, which should come at the expected time or within 5 days of the expected time. If your period is more than 5 days late, you may be pregnant. If you have any questions or concerns, please be sure to call your doctor or healthcare professional.


Keep in mind, NorLevo® is less likely to work if:


  • You've already had unprotected sex or birth control failure earlier in your menstrual cycle
  • You have unprotected sex or birth control failure again in the same menstrual cycle after taking NorLevo®
  • You vomit within 3 hours of taking NorLevo® (talk to your healthcare professional if this happens)


If you're sexually active, it's always a good idea to see a healthcare professional for routine checkups. Your healthcare professional will talk to you about STDs, and if necessary, test you for them, discuss effective methods of routine birth control, and answer any other questions you may have.


If you have any concerns about taking this medicine, speak to a healthcare professional as they would be able to provide more information about NorLevo®.

Additional Information


When taken as directed, NorLevo® is intended to prevent pregnancy up to 72 hours after known or suspected contraceptive failure or unprotected intercourse. NorLevo® isn't effective if you're already pregnant, and it won't terminate an existing pregnancy. NorLevo® does not protect against HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).

72 Hour Window


In order to improve its efficacy, the morning after pill should be taken as soon as possible after unprotected sex. This means taking it within 72 hours.
