What is the Levonorgestrel method of contraception?

0

The levonorgestrel method requires one 0.75mg tablet (Levonelle-2) to be taken as soon as possible and within 72 hours of unprotected intercourse and a further tablet to be taken 12 hours later. This method is an alternative for women who cannot be given oestrogen (Q15.8). An additional tablet should be taken if vomiting occurs within 2 hours of taking either tablet.
