What are the benefits?

Levonelle One Step is 95% effective at stopping pregnancy, provided it’s taken within the first 24 hours after you’ve had unprotected intercourse. Between 25 and 48 hours this drops to 85%, and on the third day it’s 58% effective. You only need to take one tablet to experience the contraceptive benefits and because it’s not active in your system for too long, it’s less likely to cause side effects like nausea.

How does it work?

Your body produces the female sex hormone progestogen right after your body has released an egg, which signals the ovaries that they shouldn’t release any more eggs. Levonelle contains a high dose of the synthetic progestogen levonorgestrel and when you take it, it makes your body think that ovulation has already happened, which means that an egg doesn’t get released. It also changes the cervical mucous, so it’s too thick for sperm to get through. If an egg’s already been released, the active ingredient doesn’t allow it to attach itself to the womb lining.

Who can buy Levonelle One Step?
