Before taking NORLEVO®

How should you take NORLEVO®  Morning After Pill?

NORLEVO® is most effective if taken as soon as possible after unprotected intercourse and no later than 72 hours (3 days) afterwards.

Each pack of NORLEVO® contains two tablets. Take both tablets with some water, as a single administration, as soon as possible, preferably within 12 hours of unprotected sexual intercourse and no later than 72 hours (3 days) after intercourse.

If you vomit within 3 hours of taking NORLEVO®, take an extra dose immediately.

NORLEVO® can be taken at any time during the menstrual cycle.

All further unprotected sexual intercourse must be avoided until the next menstrual period; until then only mechanical and/or chemical methods of contraception may be used. This means items such as condoms, spermicides, cervical caps or diaphragms.

Can you use NORLEVO® Morning After Pill if you are breastfeeding?

NORLEVO® is secreted into breast milk and breastfeeding should not occur within 6 hours of taking NORLEVO®. If you are breastfeeding your baby, please consult your doctor, pharmacist or other healthcare professional for advice.

Are there contraindications to the use of NORLEVO® Morning After Pill?

NORLEVO® should not be used if:

  • You have an allergy to any of the ingredients contained in NORLEVO® (levonorgestrel, lactose monohydrate, maize starch, povidone, anhydrous colloidal silica and magnesium stearate).
  • There is a possibility that pregnancy already exists e.g. if unprotected sexual intercourse has already taken place in the same cycle or if the last menstrual cycle failed to occur.
  • You have abnormal vaginal bleeding.
  • You have a severe liver disorder.
  • You have a history of arterial disease.
  • You’ve had an ectopic pregnancy.

If you use NORLEVO®  Morning After Pill but still fall pregnant, will the baby be harmed?

Available data indicates that levonorgestrel contained in NORLEVO® does not cause any harm to the foetus. NORLEVO® will not work if you're already pregnant, since it cannot dislodge an embryo which has already been implanted.

Can NORLEVO®  Morning After Pill be used at any age?

Any woman, from puberty to menopause can use NORLEVO® in order to prevent an unplanned pregnancy following unprotected sexual intercourse.
