Postinor® – Emergency contraception with Levonorgestrel
Postinor® contains the active substance Levonorgestrel and is a medicinal product for emergency contraception (the morning-after pill), i.e. within 72 hours after unprotected sexual intercourse or in the case of the failure of a method of contraception such as e.g.:
- ruptured condom;
- forgotten intake of an oral contraceptive (“pill”) beyond the maximally acceptable time period;
- ejected intrauterine device;
- premature removal or displacement of a vaginal diaphragm or a portio cap;
- sexual intercourse during the assumed fertile phase with the exercising of periodic abstinence (temperature method);
Postinor® is exclusively intended for emergencies and should under no circumstances replace a regular method of contraception.
The dispensing is exclusively undertaken through the physician or the pharmacist. Before being dispensed it must be clarified in a consultation whether the preparation is suitable for you. With absence of the menstruation a medical follow-up control is necessary as a possible pregnancy may be suspected.
