Postinor is an emergency contraceptive that can be used within 72 hours (3 days) of unprotected sex or
if your usual contraceptive method has failed.
Postinor contains a synthetic hormone-like active substance called levonorgestrel. It prevents
pregnancy in 99% of situations when you take it within 72 hours of having unprotected sex. It will not
prevent a pregnancy every time and is more effective if you take it as soon as possible after
unprotected sex. It is better to take it within 12 hours rather than delay until the third day.
Postinor is thought to work by:
• stopping your ovaries from releasing an egg;
• preventing sperm from fertilising any egg you may have already released.
Postinor can only prevent you becoming pregnant if you take it within 72 hours of unprotected sex. It
does not work if you are already pregnant. If you have unprotected sex after taking Postinor, it will not
stop you from becoming pregnant.
Postinor is not indicated for use before the first menstrual bleeding (menarche).
Postinor is not recommended for young women under 16 years of age.



Levonogestrel 0.75mg

How to take:

Always use this medicine exactly as described in the leaflet or as your pharmacist has told you. Check
with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure.
Take the tablet as soon as possible, preferably within 12 hours, and no later than 72 hours (3 days)
after you have had unprotected sex. Do not delay taking the tablet. The tablet works best the sooner
you take it after having unprotected sex. It can only prevent you becoming pregnant, if you take it
within 72 hours of unprotected sex.
• Postinor can be taken at any time in your menstrual cycle assuming you are not already pregnant
or think you may be pregnant. Do not chew but swallow the tablet whole with water.
• If you are using one of the medicines that may prevent Postinor from working properly (see
section above “Other medicines and Postinor”) or if you have used one of these medicines in the
past 4 weeks, Postinor may work less effectively for you. Your doctor may prescribe another
type of (non-hormonal) emergency contraceptive, i.e. a copper intrauterine device (Cu-IUD). If
this is not an option for you or if you are unable to see your doctor promptly, you can take a
double dose of Postinor (i.e. 2 tablets taken together at the same time).
• If you are already using a regular method of contraception such as the contraceptive pill, you
can continue to take this at your regular times.
If another unprotected intercourse takes place after the use of Postinor (also if this is during the same
menstrual cycle), the tablet will not exert its contraceptive effect and there is again the risk of

Please always read product leaflet or packaging before use.
