NorLevo-1 is an oral emergency contraceptive indicated for use within 72 hours of unprotected intercourse. It is not intended as a regular method of contraception.
It contains the active ingredient levonorgestrel.
NorLevo-1 must be taken as soon as possible, preferably within 12 hours and no later than within 72 hours of unprotected intercourse. It has been estimated that NorLevo-1 will prevent 85% of expected pregnancies if taken within 72 hours. The sooner you take NorLevo-1, the more likely it is that it will work.

Therefore, NorLevo-1 stops a pregnancy before it is established. It does not work if you are already pregnant.
NorLevo-1 does not protect against sexually transmitted diseases.
Take 1 tablet as a single dose as soon as possible, preferably within 12 hours, after the unprotected intercourse and not later than 72 hours (3 days) after the intercourse. The sooner you take the tablet, the more effective the treatment will be and the more likely an unexpected pregnancy will be prevented. It is best to take the tablet immediately after you receive it.
Swallow the tablet whole with a full glass of water. If you are already using a regular method of contraception such as the contraceptive pill, you can continue to take this at your regular time.
Your doctor or pharmacist should advise you to use a barrier contraception method until your next period.
NorLevo-1 is not recommended for use in children. There is only limited information available on this medicine when taken by women aged 14-16 years and no information on its use in younger women or children.
