Levonorgestrel is used for emergency contraception. It provides a safe and effective way to prevent an unintended pregnancy after unprotected sex or contraceptive failure.
Levonorgestrel is a progestin (female hormones). It works to prevent pregnancy by temporarily stopping the release of an egg from the ovary, or preventing fertilization (union) of the egg by sperm. It may also alter the lining of the uterus (womb) to stop a fertilized egg from attaching to the uterus.
