Also known as the “morning after pill".
The emergency hormonal contraceptive pill Levonelle 1500 can be taken up to 72 hours after unprotected sex. Ellaone can be taken up to 120 hours after unprotected sex. Emergency contraceptive works by delaying ovulation so the female egg is released later and therefore is much less likely to be fertilised by the sperm. Although Levonelle 1500 can be taken up to 72 hours after sex, it is most effective when taken within 12 hours after sex.
Contraception is also available as an injection. This contains a hormone which has a similar effect to the hormone progesterone. The injection works by slowly releasing it into the body to prevent ovulation from occurring. For the injection to be effective, it must be administered every 12 weeks.
